    Default The Official Daily Dice Thread!

    Please post here with your feedback on the Daily Dice!

    Daily Dice

    Earn daily rewards from the Dungeon Master just for logging in! When you log into the game each day, you'll get a notification that a daily reward is available. The Daily Dice system can be accessed from the start menu, or by clicking the icon that displays in your health bar when a free roll is available (this small icon appears next to the mail icon). Each player gets a free roll on the Silver Chest loot table once per day (this is one free roll per account per server), and can spend Astral Shards for additional rolls if desired. Players can also choose to use their free Silver Chest roll to reduce the cost of a roll on the Gold Chest table. Players can spend Astral Shards to roll on the Gold Chest table.

    What exactly is the silver chest? A random item as pulled from a chest equal the character level? A full lottery, bringing items from "useful to you", to "much high level for you to use", passing by "possibly a low chance at a named item" and "total trash"? Chance for plat/gems/shards/TP?

    So far, all I got is that it is a "click here to do stuff" button, but no guide for what exactly you get from it.

    We really need more specifics on this system from the dev's.

    -Is the system 1 use/account/day, 1 use/character/day, or some other convoluted system?
    -What exactly can one obtain from the silver chest?
    -What is the base cost of the gold chest, the discounted cost of the gold chest, and the use/day limit of the gold chest?
    -What items are available in the two different chests?
    -What is the binding status on the items obtained from these chests?
    -What is the cost for additional rolls on the silver chests?
    -Can the additional rolls be used towards a discount on the gold chest rolls?

    You roll a Virtual d 100 and depending on what you roll, depends on your prize. Essentially a 1 gets you some plat... while a 100 can get you some nice stuff.

    Beyond hitting the "click here" button, there isn't anything else.

    Low rolls get you collectables (which remember you can turn into the vendors for augments), plat, AStral shards. Mid score rolls get basic store items. I managed to roll a 100 on the gold Chest and got a +4 Upgrade Tome. Also lots of mana pots, xp pots, guild renown pots, pet certificates (gold chest). Basically cruddy store items are on the silver chest, better store items on the gold chest, plus other goodies.

    -What is the cost for additional rolls on the silver chests? 3 Astral Shards.

    Thanks, much appreciated. Would still like a dev post detailing exactly what is available in the two types of chests, being as they cost real money to use after the first free one.

    Here's what I think I will do with this system: I will take the daily free spin and then ignore it. It just sounds like a way to get me to spend astral shards and that just sounds like a way to get me to spend real money. I already spend enough real money. I don't need some lottery hope for unreal goods to further drain my bank account.

    Personally, I think it is an inevitable but also horrible idea. And, I'm sorry to see it coming to DDO.

    I think I'd rather just spend real money on TP and spend it on exactly what I want rather than a random item, though it looks like you could actually get some good value for your investment if you are lucky (unlike the egg hunt which was a blatant cruel cashgrab). I'll be happy to have a free silver roll every day, but the gold chest seems like a shard sink. I'll wait to see a complete detailed list of gold rewards before deciding to dump any shards into it.

    so if I'm understanding correctly it is essentially a Account Appreciation mechanism reward incentive for people to log their accounts on at least once per day with the choice between get something now, or try for a better spin...

    I'm noticing from the listed items that it appears to be more a marketing approach of "free samples" but make them think they are earning them.

    For me it will be a matter of exactly how long will it take for the "You have a Spin!" message to become more of an irritation than an ignorable nuisance. {If you haven't guessed by now, I'm not a fan, even more disappointed they have spent money/time developing this instead of fixing "Quality of Life Bugs"}

    I didn't even notice a message, other than a small dot by my character's portrait.

    We have had lotteries (that never really worked) in place for a long time now. This is the system they should have done at the start.

    So you get a free item, maybe something good.. most likely not. But no one is forcing you to spend money to try and get something better... remember that. And if you do, well I hope you make out.

    Spending shards for additional spins thinking you'll get something better or are "on a streak" is preying on that good 'ole Gambler's Fallacy.

    Used 1500 (100 rolls).

    Got quite a few pets, including Obsidian Earth Elemental which I've never seen ingame, yellow dopant, and epic dragonscales. Lots of junk too. :P

    One thing that stood out as weird: Instead of going to my overflow cache, the Obsidian Earthguy was instantly added to my stable and summoned.

    If I log in every day but don't use my free spin, can I bank them until I have 5 and then get a free spin on the gold chest? That's the only way I can see ever playing the gold chest lotto. And it would probably get me to log on more too. But I'm not going to be buying shards just to roll the dice on this.

    Looks like they moved the DDO Lottery from myDDO, which is perpetually buggy and doesn't encourage people to actually play the game.

    Each time this BS gets repeated...

    DO YOU REALLY THINK TURBINE IS 1 PERSON?

    People that do most of new things that get placed in game got nothing to do with fixing bugs.
    Each time they change graphics, add new items, icons or whatever, the same thing is repeated.

    Oh, it is an idea to get you to spend real money.

    Then you could put this stuff up on the AH and make plat! (aaaand all these pots are no min level. 20 minute DWard on your level 4 Barbarian? No problem!)
    CL:20 unbound Death Ward pots (20 mins)
    CL:20 unbound Haste pots (2 mins)
    CL:20 unbound Fire Shield (Warm) pots (1 min 45 seconds)
    Chipmunk Funk and Devil Scales

    Or..... just sell casts of your new Huge Jewels of Fortune in trade chat
    Or sell greensteel you just made from this: (Standard): You obtain a Shavarath Signet Stone.
    Or post the Gray Cranium Rat certificate you just got on the AH....

    BTW, I shattered 1000 Astral Shards and only got one "Platinum Roll", for which I received 3 Greater Siberys Spirit Cakes.

    I got a kick out of my last roll of the batch.....
    (Standard): You rolled a 91 on your Daily Dice which earns you Special Rewards
    (Standard): You obtain a Raid Timer Bypass Hourglass.

    This is too much like a "Real Money AH". It's gross, it's cheesy, and it really furthers the divide between the haves and the have-nots, the hardcore gamers and the casual ones.
