Add another vote to those who feel there should have been a 'grace period' for the enhancement resets. Expecting people to be able to hit exactly what they wanted on the first try is a bit optimistic. It is hard enough to build the way you want when all the options are known(and working). Expecting people not to have to adjust there choices is very unrealistic. Expecting them to pay(on a sliding scale)to get their toon back to fighting form after a change this big AND be okay with it is a little too much.

I bugged Cordovan (via PM) and Squeak and Varg (via devchats) and told them the cost on Lama was too HUGE and brand new system that people were going to reset like mad the first few months (both due to bugs and testing stuff out) so please decrease the cost on live to start. They seemed to understand back then.
I guess they forgot to lower it to start or they feel they have no configuration bugs in the system.
I'm fine with Varg's stated reasoning for a year from now. But right now the bug count is high, the frustration level is mounting, and it's mean to not let people experiment with their new toys w/o crazy costs.
Just like how I learned to accept early/often when figuring out what I wanted instead of assuming that it actually locked in what I told it.
Just like when destinies were first released, this needs a reset feature.
I was out 200,000 plat before I figured out the fricken UI.
I would rather go back to the 3 day reset feature.

There definitely needs to be some sort of grace period for the time being.
Also resetting should be completely free once every 3 days or at least once a week for both enhancements and ED's.
I think there might be a bug somewhere in the code. I had spent something like 8 points exclusively in the Angel of Vengeance tree, and still had 72 pts left to spend. Out of curiosity I hit the 'reset all trees' button and was asked for an eye-popping 52,000 pp. I canceled that and hit the 'reset tree' button inside the tree. I was only asked for about 2000 pp. That doesn't seem right. I thought about submitting a bug report, but yea.
I've only redone one of my toons so far, a Ranger with a couple Rogue splash levels. Wasn't that hard, with THAT toon. Didn't have to use my Heart of Wood or anything. BUT, when I go to rebuild my caster toons, I'll probably end up using the Hearts so's I can put skill points into Spellcraft, etc. to boost Spellpower. And they'll likely be more complicated to rebuild than the Ranger was.
We really do need a grace period with the New Thing.
All that is wrong with DDO, life, taxes, poltics, religion, music, fast food, education, the criminal justice system, the weather, society, the universe, and previously-discontinued-but-now-on-their-way-back snack cakes, is all the fault of Wizards of the Coast. I know this because Fred told me so, and Mind Flayers are smart.
Would require some extra work, but if you haven't used your LR yet, you could do that to reset your enhancements for free. Using either the free LR token or the other free respec handed out.
Every character got a free LR token, so cannot fault DDo Devs, they seem to have planned for situations like this.....
idk maybe theres the extra hope that newer players who are plat poor might just buy some shards from the store?
A lot of characters' designs have been nearly wrecked by this system (and I'm sure this is much more so for multi-classed characters), and reworking, or simply salvaging, is going to take a number of resets that's likely exponentially higher than anything resembling normal.
I have started making test characters now, but that is very time intensive, especially if you need higher lvls (although the iconics can help a bit there to see enhancement effects on higher lvls), not to mention the cost of lvling them up fast to test it.

Count me in as one of those who thinks there should be a grace period of 4 weeks (or more) while people get used to the new enhancements. The new system is such a radical change, not forgetting that some of the enhancements are likely to be bugged or not working as described, that the cost of changing enhancement should be minimal if not free for a while.
