    Default +6 tomes didn't make it to live?

    Just reading the 19.2 release notes from last night and noticed the +6 tomes listed for the mabar event on the Lama release notes is not in the live release notes.

    Lama's notes are;

    There is a new ingredient available: Signet of the Endless Night

    You may earn Signets of the Endless Night by defeating the Spectral Dragon
    You may earn one Signet of the Endless Night per day
    You can trade Signets of the Endless Night for items at the Signet Trader in House Jorasco (right outside the entrance to Delera’s Graveyard):
    +6 tome (Limited to one per character)
    +5 tome (Limited to one per character)
    Cosmetic Hat: Jack-O-Lantern
    Cosmetic Hat: Mabarian Head-Spider
    Ruby of Ghostbane Augment
    Ruby of the Vampire Slayer Augment
    Ruby of the Endless Night Augment
    Enchant Weapon: Festival Solar


    and the notes from last night are;

    A new ingredient called the Signet of the Endless Night is now available that can be traded with the Signet Trader in House Jorasco (outside of the entrance to Delera's Graveyard) for various rewards, including:

    +5 tome (Limited to one per character)
    Cosmetic Hat: Jack-O-Lantern
    Cosmetic Hat: Mabarian Head-Spider
    Ruby of Ghostbane Augment
    Ruby of the Vampire Slayer Augment
    Ruby of the Endless Night Augment
    Enchant Weapon: Festival Solar


    So did the one off +6 tome get scrapped for live mabar?? or is this just a mistake in release notes??

    Oh I hope not.

    Mabar causes enough server stability issues without telling everyone "Run Mabar, or your character will be a DC bracket or 2 epic AP behind characters that do".

    Adding more people into Mabar would be up there with putting rat poison in the hamster food on the list of the worst things DDO could do for server stability.
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    lol yes agreed the Mabar lag is bad sure enough, but i'd deal for my for my own selfish reasons.

    a +6 STR tome would let me get overwhelming crit on my monk without sacrificing points i need elsewhere

    They were bugged in Lamania.

    Maybe they found it easier to simply remove them instead of fixing them right now.

    The +6 Tomes were removed because they were not working (they were not actually applying +6 to a stat.) Whether they make a return (after this year's Mabar) will be discussed at a later time.

    Well if +6's weren't working and aren't in game then you were a bit early putting +5's in the DDO store. #GameIsNotRewardingIfYouCanBuyTheTopTier

    Kinda ironic that they nerfed nightmare because it was added to lootgen tables. Well it's been taken out of lootgen tables so maybe it's a good time to petition it to be reverted.

    I used plenty of +6 tomes on at least 2 of my Lamma toons, they all worked and all stats showed the +6 inherent attribute although I do know plenty of folk were having trouble getting theirs to work. I used both the 1 per toon from mabar hand in and during one of the dev events hosted by Squeak I managed to get the full set for both toons. toon names are Metalsudz and Monkleyseas.

    Fix the loot tables, let 5 or 5 -6 upgrade drop in lvl 31 chests.
    Don't sell in store.
    More folks run dead land that is currently Shadowfell.
    Done.

    I can dream, right ?

    I can understand the tome not working, and not wanting to delay Mabar for a fix. Nonetheless, in compensation for those of us hoping to get an upgrade to two stats, it would seem fair to either allow us to get two +5s per character or one +5 and one +4 per character. Its not as nice as +6, but it would still be real good. As it is, its hard not to feel a little disappointed in the downgrade.

    +6s avaible only at mabar caused huge outrage, so they got removed.
