+10 tomes next expansion...
Bad loot: +6 tomes that have a bonus which is not avaible elsewhere in game.
The fact that we will always run it to get +6 tomes doesn't eliminate the fact that +6 tomes should not be avaible in such a short and limited event. Simple as that.
You know, people care for the game. We are not just "omgz gimme +6 tomezz lololol!!!oneone!". This is not good for the game, simple.
Tomes have always been the ultimate goal of every player. They should be avaible in game, stop. And yes, one extra ability point is a lot, specially when we have Epic feats that requires x STR/CON/Whatever.
They should remove the tomes; upgrade the old loot.
Running for tomes is nice and will draw lots of folks. I personally won't bother with a single tome. Fact is, they'll be in high-level loot eventually (and honestly, the freaking store soon enough) - but the Mabar gear itself will only be available in the short-term.
Ghallanda - now with fewer alts and more ghostbane
The thing about having these nice gear is that you can get these bonuses elsewhere, too. They consolidate slots. But, you aren't missing something essential that is not available anywhere else. As of right now, +6 tomes are NOT available anywhere else in the game.

It's funny how many people say that getting Completionist has been devalued because 2 extra points on every ability score doesn't matter that much any more, but every time they introduce a tome with one extra "+" on it, people freak out.
I also see no rational explanation for why it's the end of the world for there to be an item that's only available in an event. No, not everyone can get these items. Guess what -- there are zillions of items that various groups of players cannot get, for one reason or another. That's life.
It's a heck of a lot easier for the average player to get something out of Mabar than one of those super-rare raid or epic items.

And the problem is with the principle of giving something this useful only during a limited time. With every other item in the game, all players have an equal opportunity to obtain them. Yeah, most people can't get an epic ring of spell storing because the shard is absurdly rare, but everybody still has that 0.002% chance of getting the drop every time they run epic DQ.
Gosh, how did anyone ever qualify for epic feats before the existence of these +6 tomes that didn't exist two days ago?
I don't think so.
What chance does a newer player these days have to, say, make an alchemical weapon? Pretty close to zero.
Events are special because they are limited time. They usually run for a couple of weeks and most players have a chance to get the goodies they provide. A few won't. That's life. You won't die if you don't get every last bit of possible bling.
Oh and you are just saying non-sense. Noone ever complained that "an item is only available in an event". But when you put such a valuable item in this kind of event, yes it becomes a problem.
Heaven forbid someone might not have time to grind an item over a two-week period. Oh, but all those items that veterans got 2, 3, 4 or 5 years ago that new players can never get? Oh, those are no problem at all, right?
I will be honest.
The only reason I do not like the idea of getting +6 tomes or cool new augments only from Mabar, is the fact that I do not like Mabar.
I think it is hard to run a raid with such a large number of people needed and I have limited time to play. But you know what? I do not have those items now and if I do not get them??? Well then nothing changes for me. I will try to get a few of them, maybe even upgrade my cloak of night on my rogue. Will mostly like run my rogue out there even though he is not so good against the undead.
The main thing is I will do my best to have playing a game I enjoy playing when I have the time to play it.
Kill'em all and let their favorite deity sort'em out

Oh and btw, I don't think you know what entitled really means. What I'm saying is actually the opposite of it.
No idea what vets got 2,4,5,20 years ago but if I was there, I would have said the same as now. No point in comparing 20 years ago with now, keep the things straight.
