    Yes but what if the huge XP bonus only lasts through one entire life and doesn't count towards Epic XP (So we would need to level this again normally) I would still need free TR Hearts as I would have the tokens to buy em for each character but I could fix a number of characters and get a past life in the process which would make me relatively happy.

    Sorta like "Ohhhh **** my character is broken....." "But wait I have this lil TR bundle that Turbine gave me, I got a Free TR + a 250% xp pot that lasts a whole heroic life and stacks with all other sources" I'm not happy my toon is broken, but I'm super happy I'm able to fix him and net a PL while I'm at it! I'm so happy that Turbine did this that to speed my way back to 20 I'm also purchasing a 50% pot per character cause hey I might as well make it as quick as possible.
    Toons:
    Smallmans Syndrome, Rovac, Dragnipur, Prettyhater Machine, Lubed, Castinfist
    Emmpeethree, Hyperkill Hyperthrill and Greyvegas (All on Khyber)

    Default let's try to be reasonable and actually get something out of this

    Probably impossible, but doing every character across the board the same way has to be simpler than accounting for a thousand specific scenarios.
    This idea seems to be trending very well, and I would 100% agree that it is not only the most fair but probably the easiest to implement on short notice. It uses vet status mechanics with say the TR cache mechanics for our loot.

    Let's be realistic guys. If the idea everyone is touting in the forums is that turbine needs to provide us 10k plus TP worth of items then odds are we get nothing. If the players can support and define a reasonable expectation then we may get some kind of a functional respec.

    I like this. It would likely need to be repeated in a few months after the inevitable "rebalancing", but I like it.
    It's definitely an N-word.

    Exact details are still being determined.
    "or better" shouldn't be a maybe. In this case its not just feats/enhancements/stats/skills that will need a fresh look, it is also class splits which may no longer make any sense under the new enhancement system.

    At a minimum, please make it a +5LR and that will fix almost every possible problem with old builds, at least enough to make them playable in the new system. Ideally offer a +5LR OR a TR.

    My guess is it'll be the free basic LR for all characters, then there'll be a cake maybe which grants a collection of different + LR hearts, maybe based on account level (f2p/premium/VIP). Could also be implemented as a store code for a certain amount of free or heavily discounted hearts.
    I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.

    Default New character planner

    With all this talk of full respecs, does anyone know of a tool/web page/whatever to allow you to plan out levels/enhancements? This sounds such a significant change that being able to "play" with character scenarios before commiting to an actual build would be useful (along the lines of http://www.rjcyberware.com/DDO/DDOCharGen.html).

    It's been posted in the Lamannia section, but for wider dissemmination:

    To support the Enhancement Revamp, every existing Character will get a LR +20 TOKEN upon login.

    Thank you. I had my doubts about this happening, but thank you. I can live without the race change, I suppose, so this is very good news. Thank you, once again.
    It's definitely an N-word.

    This is great news. Thank you for doing this right as MANY builds will change with the enhancement pass.

    Congrats, you just exceeded most player's expectations. Thank you very much. The revenue you are giving up will more than be made up by the good will and players who won't range-quit on you.

    Grrr.

    THanks for quoting something some of us can't even read, that's real helpful, when we're in the 'general ddo section'

    Could anyone copy/paste? Or will that of course be against NDA and end up in some sort of crazy punishment?

    I guess I can no longer get on the Lamannia forums because it's in Beta so thank you for posting it here.

    I am very gratified that Turbine decided on this solution. I will be buying the expansion now

    Just highlight it, but here:

    And more important:

    When I click it, I end up back at the 'main forum page' - I assume because I do not have beta access.

    So this link is unreadable to me, and provides no information.

    I guess I can assume something good has happened, but since I don't know, I should probably keep complaining about everything.

    It'd be nice if we had a nice, safe vault of some sort... some place where one could safely post this information, like a giant player-bank, or something - so that the rest of us could actually see whatever the information is that the dev decided was good enough to share, in part, but only to those with beta access.

    PS: thank you to hal for confirming what I had to only suspect since turbine has locked off access to those forums. still bad form to provide a link instead of you know, maybe copy/pasting the text here, so that those of us without access to that forum can read it.
