I agree with the general concensus.
There are a lot of really great changes coming.

It looked like another silly dev sig with quotes, like many ddo forum users use, so I totally ignored it.
Tell ya what though, Turbine still hasn't earned my trust back enough for me to spend money on it... perhaps soon, but not yet. But this helps.
I will pass this information on to my guildies; some of whom are very worried about their characters. Thank you for the information.
Perhaps some day, they'll stop treating their preview server like a beta server, and actually allow people to read what's going on, since all the beta-testing has already happened.
That is awesome indeed! But what about characters who are not yet level 20 when the expansion launches? What will they receive?
Edit: Just read the dev's post again and it does say "every character'. So that makes it sound like even low level existing characters will get the LR+20, which would be fantastic.

Really glad I talked my guildie out of buying a +5 heart from the store 2 nights ago.
Thank you for implementing a free +20 LR heart of wood for the enhancement pass. That will be sorely needed by many characters.
Would it at all be possible to offer concurrent free tokens or something (coupons?) for the alignment change respec item as well? A free token would probably be best to avoid people stockpiling them for later lives.
I've noticed a concerted effort to make True Neutral less and less appealing an option for anyone that doesn't "have" to be a particular alignment. Or, in other words, the other alignments have been made less sucktastic to actually take. This has been a gradual change over time but respec-ing for the enhancement pass might be a good time for people to clean up any lingering alignment issues.
If not that's fine. The +20 heart of wood is already more than I was hoping for (I was actually hoping a +10 heart of wood might debut). I just wanted to throw this out as a consideration.
Thank you again for the hearts of wood for existing characters.
Even with a +20 LR, we won't be able to find the 6 to 8 build points needed to have the skill points to develop those skills.
On G-Land : Flavilandile, Blacklock, Yaelle, Millishande, Larilandile, Gildalinde, Tenalafel, and many other...
Time to fill up my character rooster again...
...wanders off wondering what to make???
Rushed back and shyly says, "THANK YOU"...
Very nice And with the handy side effect of allowing those of us altaholics to freely try out some build ideas on retired characters too
I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.
The only thing that remains is the question of race....LR+20 wont let you change race, how about a racial respec token tossed in there as well, if such a thing is possible?
Racial enhancments are being revamped just as thoroughly as class enhancements, and there is definitely going to be new, very race-specific builds to take advantage of, say, Elven Grace or Dwarven Throw Your Weight Around, that simply wont work as a Human or Helf.
I'm willing to suck up the cost of an Alignment change, if it comes to that, but a Race change token in addition to the 20LR would really really help me out a lot. Please consider handing us a Race Change, thanks.
Oh, and Thanks so so much for 20LR and for letting us know about it this early on. I hope you'll consider doing this kind of thing right from the get-go in future.
I'd be a lot happier if they fixed more bugs instead of adding more radical changes. I'd also be happier with a few minor additions to current content instead of radical changes like this. I've got no pity on Turbine at the moment. As far as I'm concerned, they are gleefully digging their own grave.
Yehediah (Dwarf Cleric), Zeddek (Human Favored Soul)
Mezros (Drow Bard), Fieris (Drow Wizard)
Freibo (Halfling Rogue)
Too bad you hit submit.
I'll add this: I would buy the expansion, now that I know I won't have to buy hearts for all my characters, if I knew the expansion would immediately (ie, today) get me into the beta.
Since they can't even manage to get the people who DID pay into the beta properly (complaints from guildies that broken forum accounts are slowing them down, turbine suggests a 2-3 day wait time via the ticket system).... I think I'll just wait.
Maybe even wait until they go 50% off in 3 months. I dunno. Turbine has certainly given me nothing in the expansion that is a totally 'wowee, must buy' item... except a certain hireling, which is way too overpriced to me....
Iconics can't TR yet, so they are useless to me until they can.... so, what - a couple of adventure packs for 30 bucks?
THey gotta really make me WANT to buy it; so far, they haven't.
But they've certainly made me feel better that I won't have to spend so much money repairing characters after this.
