    Overall I find these fairly underwhelming. The first cakes given out years ago would be better today as they allow summoning of shrines in raids which is really nice when first learning a raid. These rally just grant a very small xp boost.

    Choice of plus 3 tome would be more appropriate since some people didn't get a couple pages ful of plus threes acouple months ago. Also no experience potions there is kinda weak too. 25 major pots is really the best thing here and those are available pretty cheap also due to the same bug/exploit.
    +2 tome is huge for probably 75% of the playerbase.

    Keep things in perspective.

    heh....was thinking that as well. Are we really at the point where a free +2 tome is considered junk?

    Possibly but a +3 would also be huge for them then wouldn't it and it placates the other 25%. Except the people who just got bank pages of tomes it acutally hurts them as it devalues their items.

    these are cool not too much for your level 4 people who have just started playing but enough to still be mildly useful to the most epicly geared people

    Also when you get a tome you get a "Nom nom nom" message! (awesome)

    Rewards are not awesome. But it's still something free. 25 major pots is something I'll gladly take

    Edit: Major pots BtC too (melee are screwed since they an't get the best reward?)

    Did only newly created characters get a cake ?
    I had two characters copied from last update, and didn't get a cake... Couldn't log on yesterday to create one. Sad.

    I have still valiantly held onto my first ever ddo djinni cake for all these years (3rd birthday gift i think it was). Getting them again is a good thing - even if the cake djinni options have changed which is to be expected. What i want to know is if i've so carefully kept my little bit of cake from their 3 rd birthday when they give them out again will it no longer say "ddo 3rd brithday" and have the original djinni options - or will it transform into something else like the Jelly Cakes are known to do?

    +2 tomes are huge for everyone except ubers. This sounds awesome. (plus its free, as in you don't pay for it, as in there's no cost, as in they are being nice, really nice. What's that saying? something about a horse eating a gift?...)

    It is probably too late as it would require some kind of new item and barter box code, but a +3 tome swap token would be a great compromise for some of us. Prior to the news about tome retention through TR, for example I had acquired a couple BTC +3 dex tomes from end reward lists. Now one of those is... well, I'd love to trade it in for a different one!

    It will get that way with the tr changes. I think it's safe to say most of the +2 tomes in the game are consumed by tr's. Once they stop eating all them the value of a +2 tome drops significantly.

    Your old cake is safely staying the same and old. Old Birthday Cakes of Wishes don't turn into new Six Year Old Cakes.
