    Default Has anyone gotten any Astral Shards since the new Daily Dice were implemented

    Pretty much the title, if know one knows a dev response would be nice

    No. I'm pretty sure they removed them.

    Not sure if you'd consider it equivalent or not, but I actually got an Astral Diamond recently.

    Hmmm, checking DDOwiki that seems odd because it says those were phased out. I definitely got one recently though and I don't remember from where.

    I have rolled 2 100s almost back to back since the change. Both times I got 1000 xp token and a BTA +1 tome. No astral shards.

    I actually stopped getting shards quite a while before the new tables were introduced.
    Now excuse me while I wander off to arm myself with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and hunker down behind my Armored Beer Refrigerator, while I have the UFO's take control of the Congresional Wives with the help of the International Cocaine Smugglers and the Evil Geniuses for a Better Tomorrow

    They better not have removed them the only reason I found the fact that alot of things require Astral shards nowadays was because its possible to get them for free through the Daily Dice.

    no AS in quite awhile on silver or gold rolls for me. half the time I only receive xp and nothing else on my rolls. I smell a conspiracy theory brewing.

    I have not seen ANY since the update for sure and I think I got a total of 6 before so there weren't many coming out even then from my perspective.

    Before there were Astral Shards I got far more Astral Diamonds (and damned if they weren't rare) than I got Shards even without the conversion rate.

    I could be wrong, but it seems to me they also removed the possibility to win a true druidic heart of wood on a silver roll since the silver roll has no category including quest tools. Not that I've ever won a true druidic heart of wood on a daily dice roll. An xp stone is definitely a lot nicer than a couple of crappy collectibles, don't get me wrong, but it seems like they removed some of the randomness that allowed for some really nice prizes that was the case with the earlier version of the silver daily dice.

    Default nope.

    I haven't. But I HAVE lost shards due to accidental double-click and lag. Pretty soon I won't have that issue anymore. 7 shards left. Ain't buying more.

    Default Nope

    Me and my guild have been keeping track, check my signature, since August 19. We are currently over 300 silver rolls, and no one has reported anything that is NOT on the list.

    If you read the categories

    XP
    XP + plat
    XP + consumables
    XP + Curatives
    XP + slayer boosts
    XP + XP Elixirs
    XP + Skill Tomes
    XP + Ability Tomes


    As someone else stated, in a treasure chest I did pull an ASTRAL DIAMOND since august 19. Which I thought was strange, but I have pulled them before, probably a grand total of five.

    I did get an Astral Diamond either Sunday or Monday, which is pretty much the same thing since it breaks down into 4-6 Astral Shards.

    Default This is version 3 of Free Daily Silver dice rolls

    When Silver Dice rolls first came out we got good stuff.

    Raid Time Bypass, Jewelers Tool Kit, Astral Shards, etc. I did not like the collectables or the variety of consumables that caused your inventory to fill up.

    Then it was changed and cut out the Raid Timers and the Jewelry tool kits. The good stuff. But you could still get collectables and essences. Wheeeeeeeeeeeee...............

    Now, it has been nerfed down to make it a carrot to go VIP to get your Free Weekly Gold Roll. But I do like that there is no longer a variety of Slayer Count Boosts, or XP boosts. Just one type, and they stack.

    One good thing, you roll a 100 you get an ability tome. Which is nice for the new player. Since the FREE DAILY DICE SILVER roll is catered to the new player, it is fine by me. After all, it is FREE.
