    Does this effect breakables? It was never an issue before, so I dont know if it was asked.
    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

    And do jewles of fortune effect them too?
    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

    A good question. What exactly does the Dragonmark of Finding do to breakables?

    I've been getting pretty good stuff from breakables all week. I ran Catacombs and got a +2 Thaumaturgy staff of something-or-other, a +1 Saber of Dwarven Bane and some +2 light armor.

    I also have picked up at least 3 other similar staffs, in the Depths in House D.

    If the loot bonus affects breakables will we start seeing +4 stuff?

    Yes.

    It stacks WITH Gems and Mark of Finding.

    So, you can get +5 to loot with this bonus and all others added.

    It's totally true, I have a reliable source. You better reroll now.

    +6... +2 (GDMoF) +2 (Gem) +2 (Current Bonus)...

    And it's only a matter of time before we get +3 Gems... given the trend of loot level importance.

    +7 if you use a TBC map?

    Right now I have some evidence that loot gems and chest blessing may not stack. Loot events and gems definitely do, however.

    Edit: This comes from a level 23 quest (EH VON3) dropping a +3 tome with chestblessing and a +2 gem (level 27 loot which F_o_S implied would have only +4s or 4-to-5 upgrades)

    Well, either +2 loot gems are bugged right now, or you only get an ADDITIONAL chance for a +4 or +4-to-+5 tome methinks. I, too, had the luck of pulling a +3 wis tome from one of the end chests from the new chain on EH(lv 24+1) while running a +2 gem 2 days ago. If I am correct, that should have put me at lv27 loot table (lv25 quest, +2 loot gem), unless one or more of the end chests are lower than quest level. I don't remember which quest, but I do remember it was from an end chest, because it had me wondering about the loot table myself.

    Also, I believe someone else pulled a +3 tome, and another person pulled a +3-to-+4 upgrade tome on the same run, but at least one of those was from an end reward, and I do not remember if the other one was from an end chect or an optional chest (which, if I remember correctly, are not necessarily always at the level of the quest?).

    Oh, one more thing: doesn't chest blessing just add +1? I always thought it was +2, but I could swear one of the devs did a breakdown on how to get to lv31 loot, and he/she referred to chest blessing as only giving +1. IE: CITW EE=lv26, +2 loot gem, +2 loot bonus, +1 chest blesser=lv31 loot. Doesn't matter enough for me to search out the quote at the moment, but I swear I remember that exact breakdown(and why the tables go up to 31)...could be wrong.

    Yeah, strange thing...

    Before the loot boost we had chest blesser and gems running and were pulling far better loot in the explorer zone of the new stuff (24+2+1(2 thought it was 1 but some say two for blesser) then yesterday with the loot bonus (with or without the chest blesser). It was still level 25 loot, but really junky stuff like vertigo +10 of banishing. That and the rare spawns seemed to pop almost not at all in comparison.

    Meanwhile end rewards were not horrible. The people WITHOUT loot gems going seemed to be getting much better chest loot (few of us with and few of us without in party).

    We were running the new pack. I have a feeling that the loot tables got messed up when the loot gem + loot boost is active in the higher level tables due to hundreds of chest pulls in party total that I observed.

    Only tome pulled in party was from someone NOT running loot gem and they pulled it without the chest blesser so it was as expected from a level 26 chest +4 upgrade tome.
