    Default Daily Dice on Lamannia Changes

    All I can say is, NIICEE! I think that you'll see my shard spend for DD increase for sure.

    Agreed.

    Thank you to whomever made this change with DD.

    Hope this goes Live with U19 - it is a great change, a welcome change.

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

    Every roll also give a XP stone (100 to 10k), and you can't win Colectibles anymore.

    I want DDO to be a better game. Those are my personal suggestions on: Ammunition, Archmage, Combat Stances, Deities, Dispel Magic, Epic Destiny Map, Fast Healing, Favor, Favored Enemy, Half-elf Enhancements, Monk Kensai, Monk Stances, Past Life, Potency, Potions, Ranger Spells, Summons, Tiered Loot.

    If that is the case, then very nice. Was getting really tired of getting collectible junk all the time.

    It is the case.

    This is what I had hoped the DD would always be.

    You will never "loose" on a DD roll.

    Whomever made this change deserves a hug.

    Definitely a great improvement. Still pretty sad how often I rolled plat on the 35 rolls I made a bit ago. Seemed like way more than 20% but it is a bad sample. But that was the equivalent of 6 months of free rolls. Got a bunch of different potions some xp and one +4 move silently tome.

    FWIW, of all of the rolls I've made on my Wayfinder characters, I think about 90% of them were plat (the others being collectables) - all free silver rolls. None of those characters have been above level 6 though, so perhaps there's a character level component to the dice "randomness"?

    The best I've got was a silver jackpot, which gave my level 20 cleric a +1->+2 Wis upgrade tome. Nom.

    Glad to hear you guys like the changes.

    Here's the reasoning behind what was changed:
    • We felt the rewards did not feel like they followed a proper progression. A higher category didn't always feel better than a lower category.
    • Landing in the bottom few categories felt like losing. At the worst, we're alright with someone feeling "meh" about the result of an unlucky roll. Actively being annoyed at the result though, that's what we didn't want.
    • The categories were too confusing! There were too many possible results, and many of them were unwanted by some people.


    To fix that, we made the following adjustments:

    • The category sizes have been altered, so that fewer rolls are weighted toward the bottom results.
    • Collectibles and Ingredients have been removed.
    • All rolls now result in an XP reward.
    • The size of this award increases with higher tier categories. The XP token is Bound to Account, and you can save them up and transfer them to the character you prefer to use them on. They do not benefit from XP potions or other bonuses to earned XP.
    • Categories have been streamlined. Descriptive text under the category now tells you exactly what you can get from your roll landing there.
    • The second to top category always awards Skill Tomes. (+1, +2, or +3 on Silver, +4 or +5 on Gold)
    • The top category always awards Ability Tomes. (+1, +2, or +3 on Silver, +4 or +5 on Gold)
    • XP rewards from Gold rolls are 10 times the XP rewards from a corresponding Silver roll.


    We hope that the streamlining of the categories and available rewards, together with the XP rewards, will help make everyone's Daily Dice rolls more appealing.

    This was a nice surprise on the last build of lam, well done to the devs on this one. I know we're hard to please, but this was well done.

    Must now stop myself from buying rolls with all extra shards or I will be perma-broke.

    That is indeed a welcoming change. I also like those XP packs that we can store away for later use, or transfer to an alt!
    * We have collectable bags, hell even hireling folders, but can I have that 6-pack for my potions please?
    * Having already a past life on the dieng EU servers, I rerolled here and started from scratch as I like the game and the community, so lets see what awaits me here

    Glad to see our feedback has been taken into account, thanks.

    The free daily rolls on the live server had only convinced me to never spend any shards on paying for them.

    They don't stack so storing them away probably isn't practical but being able to transfer them around is nice.

    I've yet to hit a jackpot since the system first went live. But I have had my fair share of platinum rolls. If it ain't weighted then I might've just found a statistical anomaly. That aside I like this change.
