    Default +2 Tomes from Favor

    Only 2 days ago I remembered I would get a +2 tome of my choice as a favor reward from the Drow guy in the Harbor.

    Great for 1st life toons, but by the time I reached this favor, my TRd toon already had all stats with a +2 inherent bonus. So I got a useless BtC +2 tome.

    Couldn't that tome be BtA? At least I could swap them for my other toons who needed the most.

    Rather than bound to account would rather see it based on TR. So a 1st lifer still gets a +2, 1st TR gains a +3 upgrade tome and 2nd TR+ a +4 upgrade tome......May be a little overpowered due to the ease of getting to 1750 these days but anything would be better than the current system

    All that needs to be done is expanding the reward list, much as was done with Argo favor rewards. Now that we have them in the game, adding an XP token to the list would be ideal.

    Default More options

    I like this idea, add a plus 3 tome for second lifers, xp pots, or anything that will still be useful after the 6th TR.

    Or let the reward selection be based on the character stats. If all stats have +2 inherent, then offer +3's. This will account for tomes that drop in quests, too.

    Hmm. The problem is that people could just buy +2s and get '6 lives ahead'.
    All the more of an issue on tome value/rarity if applied to drops.

    Definitely has merit however, if a way to balance it is worked in.

    They could also offer +2 Skill tomes.
    Things that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
    • Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
    • Fixing physical defense for Rangers and Rogues. It’s ridiculous that you’re better off wearing Heavy Armor and ignoring your innate feats on these classes.
    • Cannith Crafting.
    • Update the named loot to put them on the same system.
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Fixing all challenges to give us decent XP and ingredient returns for the unreasonable time we have to spend in most of them.

    While you're at it, Devs, could you please give us something to do with upgrade tomes that we don't need?
    UDR Loot Rules:
    1) No griefing people for pulling loot that dropped in their name
    2) When rolling, classes for which the item is "useful" get +10 to the roll
    example: Wiz and Barb both roll on a Torc, the barb saying "I'm TRing into an arcane next week"
    Wiz gets +10 on his roll

    Once we no longer need them the only option we have is to turn them into crafting tools.

    I suggest instead, the option to turn them in toward an Event counter, much like CCove. Once the counter is reached the server gets an ok and the event starts 7 days from said counter being met, this way friends can tell friends and we can ask for the time off from work so we can par take in it.

    This could take months and months, but it would be cool to live in the suspense of it all. The event would be picked at random by the devs.

    I see where you're going with this but instead of every life maybe every other life?Ex. (free tome 1st life) Life one: +2tome//Life two: no tome//Life three: +3tome//Life four: No tome//Life five: +4tome//Life six: No tome//Life seven: Tome of Learning (To help TRs level up faster). Or maybe every 3 lifes getting one free on your 1st life

    A complete overhaul of the favor rewards needs to be done. For multi TRs, there's only a handful of favor rewards worth getting. When tomes carried over on TRs, that about killed the 1750 favor. Whatever change, if ever, is made devs need to keep in mind of new players and vets and also some rewards that can be useful by all classes.

    Gah! See this is the problem when you are nice to people. How can anyone complain about someone giving them a gift? You people should be somewhat ashamed of yourselves.

    Thank you devs for the free stuff!
