    Are you saying it blanked out your quest log/favor or the hair dye ruined your day?

    Is the OP trying to say that hair dye is not worth losing all his favor for? Because it totally is (well maybe not 'charcoal').

    First 2 pictures are me spending 1 Astral Shard to reroll the end chest in The Collaborator.

    The last picture is just showing the usage of XP Tokens via the Gold Daily Dice Rolls and an Otto's Box.

    Well, I don't know about funny, but I'll give you points for mass confusion.

    You don't have a screenshot of the wilderness tab for your 'no explorer' claim.

    Did the same thing myself with the gold and silver rolls. Had a bigby's so I wasn't able to go as high level, but fun to try anyway.

    This thread is just odd. But thanks for the daily double take.

    reread the explanation, he didn't say that were in the same life

    also he didn't say what's the cost of the experiment
    psykopeta - hoarding pl, for the sake of hoarding, the day i become ubercompletionist will be because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS i'm not a pro, maybe if i reincarnate in RL...

    I was in a group with guildies, running Von 3 or something. We were laughing at how funny the Chest Reroll mechanic was and that it was not available for the chest with the key near the shrine in Von 3. I had mentioned that on a past life, I took a before and after picture of the Collaborator chest using the reroll button.

    Anyone that knows me knows that I crack jokes and make light of many things in this game. It is suppose to be fun, and so whether or not I agree with certain systems that turbine introduces, all and all it is just fun.

    Another time, I was on our Guild Ship consuming xp token after xp token, taking my character from level 1 to level 8. Again a guildie and I were laughing about the absurdity of how many xp tokens I had.

    I decided to share the pictures to continue to laugh about the capabilities of the current mechanics in game. As far as having PROOF goes, you can believe or not, that is not the point of the pictures. This is not some sort of achievement that needs proof. As far as the cost goes.......I tested out 200 daily dice rolls not counting my free ones. @15AS / gold roll......3000 Astral Shards~!!! During the 200 rolls, I accumulated over 600k in xp tokens.

    As far as the title of the thread. That is simply a mock at all other "DOOM" threads on the forums that shout the phrases "play to win" or "play to loose". Enjoy and if you get a chance, post a screen shot of you daily dice and reroll fun you have had thus far in game.

    If you total up the DDOSTORE value of all the items above, there is about x2 the value in everything you get for the shards spent. + the XP.
