    Default Old epic items

    I would like to see an update to the old epic items (seal/shard/scroll required items). My idea would be that the base items would drop similar to the new items. They would all be ML 20 and for most they would be as they are now. Some would need to be scaled back a bit. Then make them tier 1/2/3. Adding a scroll makes them tier 1, seal tier 2, etc. Each tier would add 2 ML and to the power of the item.
    An example would be ring of elemental essences. At ML 20 it adds 90 spell power to elemental spells. Add the scroll and it is ML 22 and would add 100 spell power. Up to Ml 26 that would add 120 spell power. Currently you can get rings that add 90 universal spell power so this would not make the new ring op but still useful. It would add more items and with new epic TR you can choose if you want to have the ml 20 item for twink gear or upgrade the item. This would make the older epic raids more end game as the items would be stronger. Also this would not make the seals, scrolls etc useless.

    My idea is to add some quests to the old eberron areas that are endgame level wrt difficulty. Instead of trying to come up with new loot items (and likely failing miserably), instead have some component or ingredient or recipe in N/H/E variants that can then be used to update the old base (nonepic or epic) items from the same area. Older players would get value from having found or made that no-longer-useful-at-endgame item way back in the day, while newer players would have a reason to run the base content of the area in addition to the newer content.

    So almost the same idea as yours.
