Anything I state in this section of the forums pertains specifically to the version of the game on Lamannia.
Statements I make regarding Lamannia do not necessarily apply to the version of the game on the Live servers.
On Live, +4 tomes follow a previously established formula, and appear in level 31 treasure. When we were releasing Menace of the Underdark, I thought that we should make them more accessible than that, so I also implemented them as bonus treasure in Epic Elite quests.
With Update 16, I've revisited this, and received permission from my boss, Eladrin, to change the formula which determines what levels the tomes appear at in random treasure.
In Update 16, which is currently on Lamannia, +3 tomes appear in level 23-26 treasure, and +4 tomes appear in level 27+ treasure.
Big question: Are the upgrade tomes bound or unbound? Becuase once you use one, finding another would be totally useless unless you can trade it; Or convert it to crafting ebberon DShards.
Because DDO content is created by hand, some issues cannot be fixed with a global change. We must fix these issues one-by-one by hand with the help of bug reports. This includes:
Ladder issues: please include the /loc when reporting a ladder issue
The new proposed loot system will have +4's (and +4 to +5 upgrades) truly drop on the standard loot tables for any chest level 27+ meaning you may or may not see the "special" +4 tomes in EE chests, but you can pull these new standard tomes in EE level 23 quests with a loot gem or during a +2 loot weekend in level 22 hard quests or whatever combination gets you to level 27 loot.
There are your proofs that it wouldn't be the first time that you guys said something false.
Until I see someone pull one of those two things (before U16 ) in game, then you guys lied to us. Twice.
EDIT: I don't mean "lie" strictly. Just pointing out that stuff isn't dropping after many reports. Hope no offense taken

What is the profile of the Ability Tome going to be.
Will they be unbound or fall in the hated Bound to Character on acquire grouping.
Will they be generic pick any existing +4 to upgrade to +5 or will they be stat specific like a "Strength +5 upgrade, must have previously consumed a Strength +4 Tome to be of any use"

Here you can see that there are specific tomes and not a general one. So I guess we will see stat specific tomes.
The store ones are BtA from that thread anyway.
But Truth is eternal, so it can never be old or new. It never ‘was’ or ‘will be.’ It just ‘is.’ It always ‘is.’
Pardon the noobish question, but how does one come across a level 31 chest?
If I were to assume that the majority of chests were the level of the quest (in general), then a typical quest in the level 25 raid (which I will likely not have much opportunity to find a group for at least right away anyway) on EE with a loot gem would be level 29, add the loot dragonmark and you get 30. How do you reach 31 except during a loot bonus weekend?
And is there any chance of hitting level 31 on any lower level quest like, say, 24?
+2 for doing it on elite
+2 store loot gem
+1 chest blesser
+1 Three Barrel Cove map item bonus
+2 global loot event
You could drop the map bonus if you were in epic elite Caught in the Web or if there were a +3 global loot bonus which happened a short while back. The map bonus is not sustainable for farming purposes.
The +4 tome is special loot, not random loot - evidenced by the fact that it does not replace your regular drops. (e.g. you get '+4 Str Tome' and '+7 Annihalating Bastard Sword of Greater Good', whereas if it was random loot you'd get just the tome without the random item).
I don't have a zerging problem.
I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.
