    Thumbs down HELP!!! XP Tokens Need to be Stacking Items - Completely useless for me otherwise

    Please, please make the XP tokens from the daily roll stacking. I'm a first lifer on all my tunes playing with 2nd & 3rd lifer guildies, and well, the tokens are completely useless for me. I'm always at the wall. If they were stacking, at least I could save them for my next life, but as of now, I'm going to have to start throwing them away, as I'm running out of inventory to store them in. Which makes them absolutely & completely worthless, and which means I will never, ever, pay for a dice roll, as they show up on almost every roll. I'd much rather have crafting essences. At least I can use those.

    They are Bound to Account. Make yourself an alt and just fill up his/her/it inventory and bank. Make more alts as needed!

    I agree its pesky that they dont stack, but try to adapt.

    Give it another week or two and the drop rate will get adjusted to nothing.

    Most of what I'm getting is worth less than the XP for a single explorer anyway; they're not worth hoarding. Roll up a new toon or go ahead and TR and just burn them.

    You haven't really thought this through, have you?

    Exp gems don't stack for PRECISELY that reason, to prevent people massing them and blasting through levels when tr'ing.
    Best you can do is make yourself a bank toon, store the larger ones there, and use them when you tr, they might get you through a few levels if you are lucky.

    They aren't designed to a substitute for exp stones, just a nice little insignificant bonus for vip's.
    If someone is dumb enough to spend TP's to buy gold rolls for exp then they deserve all they get, and Turbine desrve their cash.

    Default Yes, they do not stack

    I was hoping they would but when they did not, oh well.

    The next thing you would complain about is the stack size.

    They are FREE. The only effort you did to get them was around 20 seconds of time. If eating a 100 XP to 4000 XP Augment is going to crush your game play, then you should just delete them.

    It won't take you that long to have them again since they are free. After all, you already did it once.

    Another solution, don't click for the die roll.

    Otherwise, Turbine should just delete XP Augments from the die roll tables. I don't want that.

    Then get rid of them altogether. They are just an annoyance. And, yes, I can delete them, but why do I have to?

    If most of your characters are capped, then they are just an annoyance. If you are leveling up and want to also get some good favor (and TP) while leveling, then you don't need them.

    My vote is make them stack and make less variety OR just get rid of them altogether. I hate them...

    Yep, remember when augments first arrived? people pleaded and pleaded for them to stack, to no avail and then; BINGO! Turbine came up with a solution....a bag (btc of course....why?) for augments. Available from your friendly DDO store.

    good old Turbine, always there with a handy solution to your problems.
    Turbine, they are your friends.

    One of my favourite albums when I was a lad was the fabulous and influential Entertainment! by Gang of Four.

    The cover art featured a series of stylised drawings of an Indian and a cowboy shaking hands with captions underneath.

    IIRC there were 3 identical drawings each with a different caption, which went something like this:

    "the indian smiles. He thinks the cowboy is his friend"

    "the cowboy smiles, he's glad the indian is fooled"

    "now he can exploit him"

    We are all that Indian.

    And the largest will only contain about 10 of them, to keep up the usual disconnect.

    I dont get it...why would you be using your daily roll on a capped char? All the rewards are BtA, so if you have shared bank you can pass anything good that might drop. Why not just use your rolls on non-capped chars, so you can eat the XP right away?

    Honestly, 100-400 XP is not going to make a difference at any level. Its less than one optional's worth past L12, and before that, XP comes so fast that its not a big deal either. Even if you hoarded rolls every day for a month, that's maybe enough for one tier at level 4. The only time you really might miss it is if youre banking levels, and you need that extra 1 XP to finish leveling to 20...

    Speak for yourself. I simply have ignored the whole silly daily dice thing was introduced and have no problem with this.

    Yeah.

    This is, as they say, why we can't have nice things.

    Devs give us shiny, and someone still finds a way to make it seem bad.

    Don't play Daily Dice if you don't like it.

    Devs: Please don't listen to these people, my vote is free exp tokens stay - sure, stacking would be nice - but very, very very glad the daily dice isn't they way it used to be: 'oh yawn more crafting essences why do i ever bother clicking'.

    Would it be nice if they stacked? Sure. But free xp is free xp. It's not a huge deal to me.
    It's definitely an N-word.

    This is precisely what I was hoping for when the stones were released but clearly if they are ever going to make one (and I am not so sure they will) they are going to take their sweet time about it.

    Default um

    am I the only one that thinks these little xp things are idiotic? They replaced our only means of getting astral shards indirectly, and the xp is so minute they are just a nuisance to me.

    I definitely saw the change as another money making scheme since they took away our means of getting even a few astral shards randomly.

    Id rather get collectable than a couple hundred average xp a day, I get more xp than that when I sneeze.

    Lucky you... I stopped getting those "and shards" results long before the visible change to the dice rewards tables. Got lots of plat rewards, but no shards in what seems like forever...

    I don't think they could make them stack. I would assume that the game reads tokens of different xp amounts as different items. At best you would end up with several stacks perhaps a 100 xp stack, a 200 xp stack etc. But really your complaining about free xp? I got a list a mile long of broken things and things that Turbine could perhaps do much better but this ain't even in my top 100.
