    It's looking really good! I can guarantee that both myself and my husband will be getting it, maybe our son too.
    Seriously, I'm such a sucker for hats on pets, I was giving girly squees of joy from the picture of the tressym with the magicians hat! Eeee!

    It's a pity that this pre-order didn't include the set of older adventure packs with it like the one last year did. I don't need it myself but recently talked at least 10 friends into playing DDO with me and was going to point them towards the expansion as a way to get the older quests. But that did probably help to cut down on the cost of the pack. ^_^

    So I should be getting this in about a week or so. I'm super excited about it... tressyms.... eeeee! *flails happily*

    A small question: The skill tomes stay after TR, right?
    It's definitely an N-word.

    Default Don't Buy Two by Mistake

    When you click on any package to buy, it automatically puts two packages of each in your shopping cart and charges you double.

    Just make sure you reset each package to 1 and click "refresh shopping cart" before buying.

    So... the only actual adventures that come with the pack are

    • Shadow of a Doubt Expansion Quest (Heroic level 15 only)

    ???

    Really? That's seriously disappointing. A level 15 Heroic quest and some "pay to win" (i.e. pay to skip content) trinkets are all that's coming in the expansion.

    I'm seriously impressed that you have the stones to charge $30/$50 for the expansion when there's so very little in it.

    So here's a question I have:

    When will this expansion pack be available for purchase via TP from the Turbine store?

    Edit: Oh wait, found the FAQ:

    Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion content will be available for purchase with Turbine Points when the Expansion launches in August. Turbine Point prices will be as follows:



    • Standard Pack 2495 Turbine Points
    • Complete Pack 4495 Turbine Points
    If only I knew what exactly was included with the Standard and Complete TP packs...

    Here's a riddle for you: What do you call people who play the game for only a day and apparently know everything?

    Default Stacking questions

    Does the new Epic XP time stack with the old Heroic time? Or replace it?
    Does a +3 skill time stack with a +2 to yield +5? Or override it?

    Epic tome works on XP from epic quests, while heroic works only in heroic quests. I.e level 1-19 vs level 20+

    Skill tomes overwrites it (says so in description) like ability tomes

    My question. What are in the adventure packs? How many quests? What levels? Any Challenges?
    Any raids?

    I understand "heroic" vs "epic". But there is only one tome of learning slot on the character sheet.

    Also, where does it say it works like an ability time? I expect you are correct but even rereading I am missing that statement.

    The Heroic tome applies bonus XP when you are in the heroic levels, then the Epic tome applies while running quests in your character's epic levels. They stay with your character forever.

    Also, the skill tomes work like stat tomes, in that they don't stack on top of each other. Only the highest bonus will be applied.

    As per release notes

    New: Skill Tomes

    Skill tomes permanently increase one of your character's skills. You select the skill you want to increase once in game by activating the Tome, where at you'll be presented with a list of possible skills to increase. You cannot select Use Magic Device - UMD tomes are available separately. Bonuses from tomes persist through reincarnation.

    Note that only the most powerful version of a tome will apply (using two +1 tomes on the same skill will only provide one +1 total inherent bonus to that skill). Hover over your skills' total mods in your character sheet to see what inherent bonuses you may already have to each skill. Skill tome increases do not count for the purposes of meeting skill rank prerequisites (such as having enough ranks of Perform to activate a rank-gated ability).

    Question

    Maybe i'm thick and missed it, but what IS the 'Ledgendary Upgrade'?

    All it reads is:

    Exclusive Tan Striped Pseudo Dragon Creature Companion
    Wizard Cosmetic Hat & Matching Creature Companion Hat 2 Pack of +3 Skill Tomes per character

    I don't see any context, nor price, nor an explantion as to what it does.

    ah, alright. And it subtracts 20% from the pack you get. So this plus standard is 74$, and with Collectors it is 90$
