    Default Fact or fiction about Ottos?

    I've heard 2 rumors and would like to know if either is true.

    1. After update 19 you won't be able to use existing Otto's boxes with Exp pots/shrines etc

    2. Ottos (that work with exp pots/shrines etc) won't ever be available in store anymore

    There's been no official comment from Turbine regarding this. There has been lots of speculation but nothing concrete. So if someone told you this and said it was fact, they are lying.

    Hopefully we can get clarification here

    If I were a betting man I'd wager the box will work just as it has for as long as people have them.

    I would also wager they will not being going on sale again though.

    It was always very obvious(to me anyway) that the stacking xp from bonus's was an unintended.

    This is correct. However, we didn't want to nerf something players already bought in the store.

    So I guess the question that I have is this:

    Cordovan mentioned that Otto's boxes that stack with XP sources might be back in the store at some time. Are there plans to have future Otto's Boxes not stack with external XP sources since you said it wasn't working as intended...I'm just confused when things might happen but they aren't WAI. If there's been no decision, that's fine but can you just tell us that?

    These have had their functionality nerfed.

    Both are false.

    Thanks Cordovan. I think I am not alone in appreciation of clearing up unsubstantiated rumors. Especially when some of us have these boxes still in inventory and was considering using them or trading them before the Xpac hit.

    Please let us know in advance if something should change.

    Just because a company decides to accept an unintended consequence and allow it to go unchanged, does not mean it was the original intention. But I am happy for those who seem dependant on boxes to have fun still getting their cake.

    Not a matter of becoming dependent. Some bought or traded these on the premise that they work a certain way...and if they do end up changing the way they function down the road....it is only fair to remain the ones purchased or traded for unchanged. That is all. No need to flame those that have them.

    Blinks. Seriously, you think that an opinion stated without name calling, accusations, or general ugliness is flaming, and one in which I expressed happiness for them? Wow. I"m slightly floored by your response, and am not just kinda shaking my head that honest communication on the internet is as bad as people told me it was.

    yeah, use of a product doesn't mean you are dependent on it. I use the boxes but also leveled up plenty of lives without boxes. I still see alot of value in these boxes for me personally. It's up to each person whether they want to use it, but assuming someone is dependent on boxes just because they use boxes is a bit ridiculous.
