    And I will also warn people off purchasing these here too.

    I purchased 3 of the original otto's boxes ($150) and still have the stones in my shared bank. It was clear these were not meant to be limited to the character that opened the boxes, but they are now useless stones for the characters I want to use them on. And this is working as intended according to the GM I tried to get to help me with them.

    Boxes I purchased, and cannot use on the characters I want to use them on.

    I'm sending PMs to Cordovan (who told me to contact in game support about them when I wanted to use them) to figure out what my next move is, but I feel utterly ripped off at this point. The GM suggested account support to get my money back. I doubt that will work at all though.

    What...


    I wish this was more illogical nonsense.

    But nope, a clear middle finger to the player-base.


    Did *anybody* actually want this?


    Coming from an active VIP, and active spender including previous Boxes... this is a step too far.



    Thanks for bringing this too light :P

    1. Yup make xp from 20 to 28 cost 6.6 millon xp.
    2. Put box in store to bypass some of the grind.
    3. Profit.

    Even worse when you Epic TR and lose all the first time bonuses for completing epic content. I shiver at the fact of how much level 30 will cost. And they want people to TR to earn 6.6 million xp for each epic TR.

    I have two completionist but that is way too much of a grind for me to consider. But they are content in ruining the game in order to squeeze every last dime out of it while they can.

    Great job turning a great game into a full time job that requires overtime.

    actually, for my own personal account, this heroic box is useful cuz i have a lvl 11 double tr that i cant be bothered to level up to 20 again. so i will buy this one box and get her to 20 and never buy or use any box again. (i have not purchased a single box, nor got any gifted or traded so far )

    i also think that its easier to level a double tr to 10 or 11, only afterwards (for me) it gets difficult and i get annoyed. so this box would b more useful for the way i tend to play than a lvl 8-16 stone. i dont know if others feel the same or opposite.

    What rly annoys me is the fact that they keep changing exp stones back and forth. Can you devs pls leave them tradeable once and for all now please. This way, you will sell more boxes and have your customers happy. What more can u want from a p2w option?

    You've gained nearly 100 million exp getting those those two completionists. I find it hard to believe that 6.8 million per epic TR will faze you (epic XP is much higher than heroic XP by the way - probably takes the same amount of time to get 6.8 million in epic as 4.4 million in heroic)...

    People aren't robots. 100 million XP is a lot of mileage. I don't blame him for being tired of it. You need to find new arguments.

    Let me add an example. Try to keep up:

    Say you just finished running a marathon and upon returning to your car you realize it won't start.

    You politely ask a marathon spectator to call a cab for you since you live 20 miles away.

    Flabbergasted the spectator marks, "What!?! You just ran 26 miles! Another 20 miles should be a piece of cake! C'mon!"

    You just smile and politely refuse and ask him again to call a cab. Because you know that you still love to run marathons, but sometimes you just need to take a cab, even if it's for a little break.

    So now i can trade ee items straight for xp stones that someone bought. I have found a way to profit in game from the vast wealth imbalance in our society! Now if only I could find a way to do that in rl...

    Thanks for the info Urlock and Wizza. The store folks are definitely reading the forums and understand what will sell. They are going to make a lot of money at the end of the year from these.

    So after numerous threads, forum rule violations, occupy stormreach movements, pictures of people's canceled subs and more doom than I've ever seen it will be funny when Turbine comes back and says "These were just placeholder values" next week like they've said so many times in the past.

    I would still like to see the token of the twelve option remain, but this is the most irrational doom I've ever seen. Isn't U20 over one month away? Give them a chance to respond, 10000 more pages of doom isn't going to help.
    edited because Slarden moved his post to a thread. will post what I wrote there instead.

    It says only one stone can be used per life. So, make it count! Me? I'm thinking of taking my only tr'ed character (who I wasn't planning on TRing again) that I parked at level 10 earlier in the year and pump him all the way to 20!

    Read again one stone of heroic Xp per life and one stone of epic Xp per life. They are different so I'm betting you can use both. Stone to near 20 then hit 20 and use the epic stone. I've never weighed in on this issue but for a few buck ...ok a lot you could get completionist with little to no work...that's kinda bad!
