    you get free tp from favor you can buy shards with that and start auctioning on the exchange to earn more

    noone is being excluded from the astral shard economy...except by choice
    That's not free, then. That's earning something, and then being forced to spend it on something other than what you really want to spend it on. Its the difference between being paid in dollars, or in company dollars...its indentured service: "you can get a ride to the Colonies and start your own farm, but you have to do 4 years of hard labor first to pay for it".

    Participating in the economy should never be a "buy-in" activity...groceries stores never charge a cover at the door. Participating in the economy should never require a tradeoff.

    its as free as anything else in the game (no rl money required ) if you want to participate you can ....all economys are buy in,all trade something for something else

    stateing that no astral shards in free rolls =s that you have to spend real money to participate in the astral shard economy is a blatant falsehood

    i got my shards for free from the weekly freebie and have turned those few shards into close to 4k shards without spending a single penny or tp

    Update.

    I spent another 350ish AS on gold rolls.
    I rolled 100 once but did not get a +5 tome this time. I got a upgrade to +4 from +3 tome CHA instead.

    Makes me wonder if I got really really lucky the first time or if they changed the award already.

    Update (12/19/13 rolls)


    I just TR-ed into a Bladeforged and wanted to take advantage of 2x XP from the dice rolls (got tired of leveling) so I spent about 1400 astral shard on gold rolls yesterday.

    I believe I rolled 100 twice and got 1 lesser heart of wood & 1 EPIC heart of wood.
    Also got
    1x upgrade balance from 3 to 4 skill tome
    1x thinking cap (cosmetic helm)
    1x glow eyes (purple I think)
    and bunch of usual ****.

    and leveled from 17 (2 bubbles in or so) to level 20.

    Just awestruck, wether it be a Dragon flying overhead Stormreach, that glowing character who just zoomed in'n'out of the Pub, or that i can drink a Beholder under the table and best of all rescuing Damsels in distress.

    you talk about the daily dice roll as being free like that then means you should not complain.. "free is better than nothing." But the unusually bad rolls from daily dice and the poor quality of prizes along with the degradation of prizes really makes it a bad system. Sure Free is great but I think I would prefer getting nothing free if I after I have received said free I also get the sour feeling of being cheated. Way to go Turbine.. chock this one up as another notch on your great customer service board lol

    I think it's completely okay as it is, I just wish instead of giving me a completely useless amount of XP I'd get some items, minor ones but useful ones.
    Regarding tomes hmm, if you keep rolling everyday simple statistics would grant you a +5 tome every 3 months and a few days, so I'm happy it was nerfed and sad I never rolled a 100 before it was. Imagine how many players would go around getting free +5 tomes, this is utter ridiculous Daily Dice shouldn't ever give you something like that.

    It is obvious why they were removed: your free daily roll can ultimately lead to a free daily level up.

    If it is a joke, I do not get it.

    If it is not a joke, I do not see what Seikojin can possibly mean. It's not like you can buy Otto's Boxes with astral shards.

    New or old, I never got any shards from there.

    The only time I rolled 100 was +1=>+2 BtC intimidate tome.

    I personally don’t care what they give out as reward, on free or gold roll. However, there should be a way in game to get some shards for free, a very low limited amount, but some. Shards are the clearest pay to win implementation i have seen in DDO, but what about a “work to win” option? Just about everything that is sold in game, should be some options to work to get them.

    Anyways, don’t care too much as it’s a system that can be avoided and i don’t have any issue with other people paying real money to buy shards that they give to others with a 30% cut taken by turbine....

    Many people justify Turbine selling raw character power in their store by saying its ok as long as it can be had free by earning it in game as well. Drawing these types of arbitrary artificial lines is why people get irritated when their ability to earn it free is compromised.

    I dont think its unfair for everyone either. The folks who supported it hand over fist should still be in full support of Turbine adjusting their system to make more money. We all knew all along what the purpose of the A$AH system was.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    How is the removal or reduction of ways to get Astral Shards unfair? Well, it contradicts the information that we've been given about the availablity of gaining Astral Shards in game.

    Here's one sample of someone from Turbine saying such a thing:

In the near future we will add more ways for you to earn free shards as well as some compelling new ways to use them to enhance your DDO gaming experience.
    I could give you more examples, but they are extremely hard to track down. The reason they are hard to track down was because they were posts on Lamannia during those unstable periods where the Devs posts were not appearing on the tracker and the forums were totally FUBARed. If my memory is correct, one of the responses was when players complained about Daily Dice not having a confirm roll, in which the Devs shrugged off saying that Shards could be gained free in-game. The other time was when players were vocally against the various Shard schemes in the Shadowfail "expansion", when the Devs finally caved to add a confirm button for re-rolling loot.

    Seeing your posts tonight i think you should just leave, your comments are not constructive in the least, just whiny.

    If you are so ****ed at the game just go find something else to do, instead of moaning about it to people who on the whole, actully like and enjoy the game.
