    Default 20th DQ raid rewards are shards

    I've just done my 20th DQ raid hoping for a base item. It's taken me a while to do due to lack of confidence, bad timing, distracted with other projects, so it's taken me a few months off and on. So finally just did my 20th just now... and... it's all shards and one skill tome.

    I am annoyed.

    Just putting it out there in case anyone going for a torc misses this. I must have missed a note some where?

    +3 Upgrade Tome of Skill (Diplomacy +2 to +3)Shard of the Cloak of the ZephyrShard of the Demon Scale ArmorShard of the Green Blade
    Shard of the Lion-headed Belt BuckleShard of the Marilith ChainShard of the Pouch of JerkyShard of the Sandstorm Glasses
    Shard of the Staff of Arcane PowerShard of the Torc of Prince Raiyum-de II

    I have a torc and a belt shard. You tend to get them when you run this raid on *multiple* characters as they're *BTA*.

    GAH!!!!

    Screenshots available when I get over being cross. Have not yet taken my reward. Trying to decide if I can be bothered doing another 20 again. ON HEROIC ON A LEVEL 27!!!!

    Your 20th heroic or 20th epic completion?

    Edit: ok i guess this was 20th epic....but i like it actually that you can get shards now for epic completions.

    So this means that you can get the Spell Storing Ring shard from 20th list? Wow. Guess I'm going to have to start running DQ again.

    Um guys... look at the list... no. It's all the raid shards. If you're running this raid as regularly as I am the raid shards are pretty common and while I don't mind the torc or belt shards is there any other raid loot that you are seriously going to wear much past 20?

    And h3ll yes, if a RoSS shard was on offer I would not at all be b1tching but running it like clockwork on multiple characters.

    I am somewhat annoyed *mainly* because I don't believe we were told. I am fairly sure asking around that we weren't.

    I am wondering if I can get a GM to set my counter back actually. Doubt it.

    This is nothing strange to me.
    It was always want base items, run heroic, want shards run epic, even in days with no EN/EH/EE difficulty.

    Seems like a nice enough change to me, but I can certainly understand the OP's frustration about discovering this in the way they did.

    Changes like these should be well documented.

    I'm sure that had the OP known, they would have run it on Heroic instead of Epic.

    Chances of getting any base item for a new toon or a new player just gotten much lower.
    Epic adq /dq is at least fast good xp so getting 1 or 5 folks are quite common, but noone likes running stuff for no xp ( heroic raid ) at epic levels.
    Fvsgimp at 15 / 20 atm, haven't decided what to TR into yet but thought why not get to 20 completions. Yay.
    Good luck for at level raid. Adq is still fine.
    Unnecessary and undocumented change.

    Thanks for letting people know.

    I'm guessing that if I had done that as heroic I would have got heroic base items. It's not a mix. Everything there was a shard (and the crappy skill tome). But yes it would have been nice to know that that is what I needed to do.

    I would like to get a *chance* on a base item even if I don't get the one that I would like.

    This was a nasty surprise for you, but I'm happy about the change and grateful you posted this. Some of my characters already have the base item(s), but none have them upgraded.

    Some clarification would be nice. Is the epic list from running the 20th time on epic difficulty, or is it always given to epic level characters?

    Please no. That would suck. "Just leaving my character at less than 20 while I get this <x>". Yes some clarification would be good. Notification also.

    This is an awesome change, full of win, IMO.

    Now I can solo it on heroic for base items for my cleric, who would kind of like a torc, while grouping (or soloing) it on epic on my other alts for shards. Woot!

    Both epic and heroic completions count towards 20 so ...
    If you do your 20 th on epic you get bunch of useless raid shards, if you do 20 th on heroic, you get base items ?
