    Default +5 and +6 ability tomes from Mabar?

    I wonder how hard (or laggy) it will be to get these new tokens for the tomes (a new pumpkin trader right outside the graveyard on lammania)... definitely more reason to battle the lag at least!

    I'm guessing it's like the Birthday tomes or Skill tomes, where you trade in the item for the specific tome you want, which then has the usual ML.

    Your screenshot shows that it only takes 4 of these signet things to get a +5 tome? And you get a signet just from killing one dragon?

    I expect that it will be very laggy, as every single person playing ddo will be in there.

    Yes and no.

    From what I understand (and I could certainly be mistaken), you're only permitted one Tome per Character, and only get one Signet per day.

    So I suspect that most will do a run each day on their various characters and if they don't want any of the gear for their Monks or Palemasters etc probably just go and do something else for the rest of the event.

    After the first four days I suspect it'll be fairly quiet.

    There seems to be other stuff to get with signets too, though. Assuming you can only get one per day per character, i doubt everybody is going to be able to get all their characters done in only 4 days.

    My question is, what else has changed? Someone mentioned that the cloak is gone. Is there still a use for motes?

    There are still cloaks.

    The 'signet vendor' with the new items is outside the graveyard. The old vendor is still next to the spectral dragon entrance with all the same stuff.

    When will mabar take place this year? Most likely around halloween, but are exact days announced? Maybe I plan my vacation accordingly.

    Does the description say "can only be used once per character?"

    i.e. you can only earn a single +6?

    Q-Q why must Mabar always be around the end of October? I mean, I get that it's the Halloween event an all, but I have a yearly trip back home Halloween week. I can never get everything I need/Want. lol

    On the bright side, if I get the time this year

    +5 dex tomes all around!
    +6 whatevers.

    Does anyone know if any of the new cosmetic Hats offer any worthwhile bonus?
    Or are they purely cosmetic fluff?

    I believe Turbine has gone rogue. Off the grid. Bat **** crazy. They make Hannibal Lecter look like Honey Boo-Boo. They are going to do what they want, when they want, however they want! It's a revolution!

    (ps, this post makes about as much sense as Turbine has lately)

    You are right. Next to a randomly generated item that gives you +11 damage, who cares about a +6 strength tome?
