    Shhh....it's a secret. True Elite is a new difficulty setting. After having tied forum accounts successfully to game accounts DDO is able to tie forum posts to in-game features. While more will be rolled out in the months to come, True Elite is a difficutly setting for a select group of players. When a person logs into the forums to post a thread complaining about how the game is too easy and/or how super-awesome they are, the game will then do the following:

    1) Remove all epic gear from player character and replace it with 'True Elite' gear (generally gear on par with easily obtained gear rather than that which has been acquired after 5 years).
    2) Remove all past lives and reduce Epic Destinies to only one tree.
    3) Remove the ability for the player to select a difficulty setting other than Elite
    4) Automatically drop from party anyone in the same guild or channel of the player
    5) Blind invite a random person to fill empty spots
    6) Bonk person on head to create a level of amnesia reducing level of game knowledge to that which a person can obtain in 2 to 3 months of play time.

    And if you're curious, here is a new feature of the game soon to be implemented. Any person posting a thread about how the game is dying and there are not enough LFMs will, upon log-in, automatically have an LFM in their name posted on the server

    Asked about on Lama 2 weeks ago, and ignored. Unsurprisingly, left in for the live version.

    Think of it as every knob on your amplifier going from 0 to 11.

    Just in case you need that extra "kick"...

    I hope it's not just even more inflated HP/Saves but something interesting and smart development.

    Giving ranged mobs Shiradi would actually be a lot of fun. If they keep the same HP/Saves they have now, would be really nice.

    Right up until the permadot bugs out and lasts through:
    Death & Resurection
    Resting
    Completing the quest
    Relogging
    And maybe even Reincarnating
    I would still like to see... Something that tests character versatility and player adaptability rather than character focus strength and quest knowledge.
    I play the quests for the content of the quests not just as an XP/min merry-go-round.
    Actual play experience is worth infinitely more than theorycrafting...

    Nah, just hire someone to cast protection from fire on you every 2 seconds and it's fine.

    I am all for giving Epic level MOBs access to some benefits of Epic Destinies.

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