    Default 5000 Favor Reward

    A previous favor thread got me to thinking. With update 20 and level 30 on the horizon, it should be possible to reach 5000 total favor soon.

    What should the reward be to achieve this epic accomplishment?

    I think it should be a BTA +5 supreme tome of ability and skill (+5 to all).

    A reward would be good but that is so ridiculously OP..

    Every person that earns 5000 favor will have a bug of their choice fixed in their name*.














    *Only 4990 favor is achievable through questing; additional favor is available in the DDO Store at 595 TP each. Content created after 4999 favor becomes the cap will no longer provide favor; instead they will give Turbine Tokens which provide bonus TP whenever the owner purchases Turbine Points through the Store or Market.

    I was going to say that's a bit over the top as a reward but Turbine's tendency to obliverate loot mechanisms at an increasingly quick pace has me saying... maybe? I mean +5 Mabar tomes right around the corner, and saga skill tome rewards is about 1/3 an update old (considering how often its been closed...)

    So why not? Drive the final nail into raids and kill sagas cuz, you know, they're popular.

    Considering that there's only 3 ways to achieve this, those being:
    •VIP that bought both expansions
    -or-
    •Premium that bought all content
    -or-
    •Some combination of content ownership and store bought guest passes

    The reward should be suitable to the investment of both the time and finical resources required to obtain it. I was also thinking it should not be quickly obviated like the +2 Tome, or race/class unlocks. As our replaying content is a stated goal of Turbine ("the end-game potential of TRing...") the top favor reward should be desirable to earn on every character and re-earn on every life. It should appeal to as many "player types" as possible, from casual 2-4 Hr/weekers to serial TRers to cosmetic lovers.

    So with ^that^ criteria in mind, I've thought a tasty 5000 favor reward should be a choice of any one of the following:

    •Choice of Epic, Iconic or True Heart of Wood.
    •Any one +4 or +4 to 5 upgrade tome.
    •Recieve a store coupon for any one cosmetic armor.
    •Recieve a store coupon for any one cosmetic pet.

    I think having ^those^ as options would be enticing without being "over the top."

    The thing to remember about total favour rewards is that, while they can be quite difficult to attain for a while, they get easier and easier to get to as more content is added.

    Look at PDK favor. When MotU first came out, you needed all the quests on elite, the raid and the challenges done to unlock the (very useful, and made more useful as time went on) vendor. Now it's fairly easy to get over 500, and the reward for that is.. oh, wait.

    5000 Favor should be a decent extra TP reward.

    That looks about right. That's 100 TP's on top of 100 first time/server I hope. Else it's just another one time threshold.

    Oh, yes, I meant repeatable. Maybe change the amount to 125 to make it obviously different than the first-time award.

    This would make the first time you hit 5000 worth 250, which feels about right. (100 first time to 5000, 25 for an even 100, 125 for the 5000 reward.) Each additional time would be 150.

    If that's too much, 75 would work too. (200 first time you hit 5000, 100 each subsequent time.)

    That's not a bad list for such an accomplishment and pretty much gives someone a choice they can make for each time they do it unlike our current list for 1750

    Hall of heroes is fail.

    Log out to teleport and suffer increased stacking memory leaks? No, thank you.

    Default ^ This is The 'Bulls Eye' Statement!

    This ^!

    Logging out to teleport is unorthodox for our computer hardware indeed.

    I personally do not use this feature. I have the K to The C and use Guild airship beacons and this is the best solution to entering both Realms imo.

    A 3rd access, yet convenient for characters without the K to The C, that requires a (log-out)* in order to be used is not god for our computer memory when it comes to disconnecting from our in Game Character. Completely losing our spot in a fantasy world just to re-enter to circumvent in game barricades to access actual in game content, so to speak, is a squeaky back door solution. It confuses our consoles into actually re-configure and cause a 10 to 60 second time out, depending on that persons computer. What can also cause a lot of grief is we may forget to put our Power Attack back on and/or our Profane bonuses from Gear. This is also another step created and not fun to be forced to do.

    A better solution to the Hall of Heroes might be in game Plane Callers That must be bought in the Store as a Service or 5000 favor unlock. The Planes caller teleports the character to the Hall of Heroes.

    But there is one way the current feature would work very well is a person playing multiple accounts on different computers he or she can quickly gather a party much faster in a Realm. How many folks do this? Quite a few I think.

    We need an in-game access that does not require a log-out for those of us who only have one account for the H of H.

    How about a new Race unlock. Gnomes is my vote, What is yours?



    * Log-out: Jargon in the online gaming community this term means. To go back to the 'User' (From the Movie Tron: Walt Disney Pioneered this phrase) World breaks immersion and Severs/ Cuts the connection to that Program (Our Character).

    How about a feat of your choice, possibly from a limited selection. A single extra feat is useful for everyone, and I wouldn't consider it to be overpowered especially if the feat was taken from the heroic list or even from a small selection of new feats. After all you can get a feat for Argonnessen favour, shouldn't be that hard to create a system to allow you to choose.

    Now I have an idea.
    Its probably over powered, but what the hell.

    For 5,000 favor, once per character (note, not once per account, not once per life, once per character) you get a permanent +1 skill point per level (+4 at level one).

    Also, once per life a free +0 lesser heart of wood.

    I'd like to see some of the "missing" favour rewards dealt with at the same time.

    250 Twelve favour = +10 Tokens of the Twelve, Huge Soul Gem Bag (BTC)
    500 PDK favour = +10 Heroic Commendations, Platinum Key to the City - can be used at will and acts as a bracelet of friends to summon others to Eveningstar
    5000 Total favour = Choice of: +4 Ability Tome, +2 Fate Tome, +5 Skill Tome, +500 TP, +50k Guild Renown, +250k XP

    or
    5000 Total favour = Unlock additional level 1 feat for all characters created or reincarnated on that server
