Please work out how you want the stones of experience (level 16) from the Otto's box to work once and for all. Once you do so, could you please make a stance publicly as to their intended function and then stick to it?
When Otto's boxes were first released, the Otto's stones were mailable, but only usable by the person who opened the box, although the stone could be placed in a hotbar and used on a targeted party member.
This functionality changed with the release of u19 (Shadowfell expansion). Apparently according to Cordovan, stones were meant to become usable by whomever had the stone
Sadly this has never worked.
Fortunately GM's have been most helpful up until now. They have been deleting stones and then re-spawning a new working one in the target players inventory.
Sadly this assistance has come to an end.
The GM's stance is both understandable and confusing at the same time, As the current Otto's box in the DDO store still says the following (at the bottom)
Backing that up, the stones are currently unbound.
This inconstancy & confusion is what brings me to my requests.
During your deliberations, please consider these are items we've paid real money for. Please restore Otto's stones to their original functionality, where we could place the stone in a hotbar, then use it on a targeted party member.
After all QuartermasterX did say this.
Whatever decision you do make though, could you please announce it publicly?
