    No.

    How about they put +4 and +5 into the loot tables, then add +6 in game eventually, then maybe add them to the store.

    they need to drop in game first before they will sell them. that's how they do things by offering an in game option to acquire P2W store items.

    so really you should be asking for them to drop in game so they can sell them in the store so you can buy them to even out your stats.

    Yes, it does help to justify buying raw character power in the store if theres a .0000001% chance to get it in game.
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    100% agree. Too bad with the now a vanilla generic random loot there's nothing worth grinding for anymore when there's +2 loot bonuses. (and good tomes don't drop, afaik nobody I know has pulled a +5 since U19)

    +2 Tomes drop at lvl 10 (VoN)
    +3 Tomes drop at lvl 14 (Reaver's Fate)
    +4 Tomes drop at lvl 18 (ToD)
    +5 Tomes should drop at lvl 22 (at the earliest, with a small percentage)
    and +6 Tomes at lvl 26

    I suppose at this point, it would be impolite for me to say that I was making (joking) bets with my friends and guildies about when they will put +6 tomes in the store.

    Seriously after they gave out +5's to any character that could show up for 3 Spectral Lagon's? I am expecting +6's "Limited time offer" in the store any day now.
    You guys filibustering a new mode have already succeeded in scaring the Dev's into not doing it the right way and re-scaling the existing settings, why in the world are you still filibustering? Drunk on your success? Schadenfreude? Spitefulness?

    Raw power? a +5 tome is 5/2= 2.5 ability modifier. And that's ignoring the fact that you're PROBABLY buying an upgrade tome to upgrade a series of +2 +3 and even +4 tomes that you got in the game... So even if you bought +4 and +5 in the store we're really talking about +1 to hit and damage "raw power"

    I was kinda expecting them to put +5 back up once Mabar ends.

    I think it was a sad day the first time they added any tomes to the store they should have remained chest and end loot only so no I am not for adding +6 tomes to the store.

    The ANTI-Realms FANBOI NUKE THE REALMS ITS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO BE SURE

    What i got from that was the intention of their post was to point that you are spending time on these forums as opposed to say, the EVE online forums.

    Nope.

    Don't get trapped into the "its only +1 more mod" mentality. The major character power being sold here is qualifying for feats. Take the 12 monk 6 ranger 2 other class monkcher build for instance. Its tough to qualify for all the feats you want to max out damage potential without high end tomes, and then still get to 40 wis to get the 4th arrow shot in 10k stars. Stats needed: 23 str, 21 dex, start + levels + tomes only, then still a decent con and wis needs to be 40+ after all mods, for optimal damage.

    Many of the good builds that got posted right after the enhancement pass use +5 tomes to qualify for all desired feats, and coupling those feats is a lot more character power than the +1 mod you get for adding 2 more points.

    Ding ding ding. Since I wasn't having as much lag issues as everyone else, I did a str or dex tome bonanza during Mabar to qualify for feats like OC on characters that I might not normally be able to without being an 8 con glass cannon.

    And i didn't have to spend a level up in con to qualify for epic toughness thanks to it.
