    Default Bigby's Handy Box - WIll XP pots, XP shrines, and Voice of the Master stack?

    Has anyone used the Bigby XP Stone yet? If so, can you confirm whether the shrine, pots, and voice stacks? Also, with the above active (please specify the % of the pot and shrine you used) what level did a Bigby stone take you to? Thanks in advance!

    I didn't use one yet, but if it works like the old stone with

    50% xo pot
    10% ViP bonus
    5% voice of the master
    5% ship buffs

    1st lifer
    ------------------
    old: 1,851,000
    new 1,445,000

    3rd lifer
    --------------------
    old: 3,876,500
    new: 3,322,300

    This the expected result if you start at exactly the min of the level when using the stone.

    Let's see what hte actual results look like...

    Though I never have and never would ever consider using a stone of XP, I hope you folks at Turbine realize by making these stones of XP not work with external xp boosts you will be loosing a ton of revenue?

    Will they continue to work with existing stones from Otto's boxes, or with possible future Otto's boxes that may be available?

    I cant imagine they wouldn't, if they ever release another Otto's Box. The Stone was never meant to take you all the way to 20 by stacking up a bajillion XP bonuses. It was supposed to get you to 16, so you can focus on endgame content and skip the midgame grind. It wasn't supposed to be an "instant TR in a box"

    Should be interesting to see how sales of Bigbys' compare to sales of Ottos'...
    After Bigbys' offer runs out, which one makes a reappearance will shed some light I'm thinking...
    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...

    Wow. I just went from wanting to get several to wanting to get none. Thanks for saving me some money on TP, Turbine.

    Thanks for the honesty! But with due respect a horrible decision.

    You just saved me a TON of money. (I would have bought 4-5 if they would have stacked)

    Level 16-19 "end game"? What year is this? 2009? With the cap at 25, end game is epic. Not mid/upper heroic levels.

    If that was true they wouldn't have released it multiple times allowing all the bonuses to stack. They would have fixed it.

    That might be the policy NOW, but it certainly wasn't earlier.

    Ok thanks for letting us know. Now I will not be buying them or more turbine points.

    I appreciate Turbine being upfront about this and not letting us find out after we spent our cash.

    Thank you for not making the change retroactive to the ottos boxes. We assumed that was working as intended when we bought since it was widely know for 5 months the last time you sold the otto's boxes.

    This seems reasonable to me if you never intended for the boxes to provide these extra bonuses.
