    I think you are wrong on this, it depends on the quest but many times getting breakables is worth it. Especially when you have an extra people who don't make the quest go any faster (too many chefs in the kitchen), we assign them to breakable duty.


    2 ideas:
    How about consider power-ups from breakables for example scaled down versions of the challenge power-ups. Or a regen system similar to diablo 3; red orbs giving small health regen and blue ones for sp. I would suggest only health regen though.

    Yep, anyone that doesn't break the breakables in heroic/epic jungle of khyber has no idea how easy that extra 15% xp is. I don't bother in wiz king because there are so many rooms I will never go in.

    Maybe not, but comment was based on the post I have read by most Zergers ( XP per minut an all).

    That being said, I was actually farming favour when +1 Halfplate droped from a barrel I broke, it wasn't untill the 2nd item ( a +1 Dwarven Axe of Lesser Reptilian Bane) dropped that I really started paying attention.
    Where is my GREATBOW???

    Do you know which quest, I think we need to keep a track of this type of thing.

    We can hit a lot of breakables early in Cannith challenges. Seems like a decent place to farm plat and get a chance for something decent, and provides the opportunity to set level.

    In the spirit of being negative I just have this to say.

    This change COMPLETELY NERFS HORC'S DRAGONMARK!

    Could we have a change to the Horc Dragonmark please? I mean, it's just a waste of time.

    Oh, and this is totally a joke post (Hence all the smiley faces).

    This would actually be chance to make that ability more useful. Have it "increase the level" of loot that drops from the breakable.

    I noticed this and thought it was really cool after I found a docent and a shortbow. Seems like a cool change to me.

    I'm sure there's tons of people around who like to just do breakables in DDO while leaving the boring part of killing monsters and completing quests to other people.

    ~snip~ from another thread......

    Partymember1-breaks barrel
    Partymember2-picks up +2 tome in breakable....
    Partymember1-Hey thats my breakable
    Partymember2-no its not i picked it up
    Partymember1-I broke that breakable so its mine
    Partymember3-says put the tome up for roll.. it belongs to the party
    Partymember4 stops questing and go back to the beginning to find other breakables
    Partymember5-whats a breakable?
    Partymember6-screw this I am going to solo farm breakables instead of questing with pugs. laters..

    I think they need to find a way so that when you break a barrel, crate, etc. that what ever item drops goes directly into your inventory, same way that items in Mabar, and Crystal Cove go directly into your inventory. that would solve any drama.

    If it goes directly into you inventory then no one would know wether you got a +4 Tome of 25 CP... So no drama about puting an item up for roll!

    You forgot epic scrolls...which they intentionally changed away from this ninja lootable style to this sort of thing also.

    Unless, as it works like all auto-drops, it goes into party chat.

    And you have party members ranging crates while the rest are fighting enemies.

    And threads about full inventories and making the auto drops stop.

    Nope, it's fine as is.
