    Talk to us on how this is an actual bonus when lvl 26+ can actually make base items from epic materials.

    And why do you think nobody noticed?

    Totally this, I have HOUNDED Jerry/Cord on getting a epic to base mat trade in at the house c traders for the house c challenges.

    Just has never happened. Also House C Challenges need to have their CR increased from 25 to 30 as well. Both these things need to happen ASAP, IMO.

    Sigh. Anyways, it is just so so frustrating, literally I've asked Jerry/Cord about this almost every time he has been in the IRC/ddochat.com.

    He even said he bug reported it once. Just to clarify if you take a over level toon(25+) into the House C challenges you get penalized, so it is very tough/difficult to make base items.

    So if there was a trade in for epic mats to base mats it would permanently fix that problem, there are other "bandaid" solutions but that is the perm fix, I hope to see soon.

    Except all mine are 25+ so I don't run challenges at a severe deficit (I don't count the eveningstar since random loot permutations are terrible).

    Anyway you can forget to turn off +2 loot for a month?

    I'll have to agree with the others. While bonus is nice, the penalties you incur from having epic level characters are just annoying. Please, please make a trade-in option for epic to heroic mats.

    Please update the challenges to the current level cap, or eliminate the over-level ingredients penalty for characters over 25.
    Thank you!

    And so long as we're piling on here, let me also request Tier 4 upgrades (+7 or +8 enhancements to weapons, for example; appropriate boosts to non-weapon items) with a lvl 25 ML.

    The fact that nobody noticed there was a bonus speaks volumes

    Oh come on, nobody gives a hoot about the challenges anymore. between the loot and the never ending XP nerfage they are a waste of server CPU space.

    XP is all we care about now, boost that instead.

    But they had to nerf the challenge XP because you could run them forever! Regular quests have a ransack penalty that never (or 24 hours, which ever is shorter) goes away!
    /sarc

    They not only nerfed the challenge XP to oblivion in the past... they proxy nerfed it again with the recent changes to quests making them even more attractive in comparison to challenges.

    Or extend this bonus days event to be "Challenge Ingredients and CoV's"... I'd vote for that one.

    And the loot is all junk with random gen taking over.

    Challenges are just pointless.

    Fix getting the gear and maybe more people would start to pay attention to it.

    Best way to get Dungeon Tokens and nice augments -- and Heroic Hearts of Wood... so long as you're not above level 25 or so.

    I'm actually making 3 Spare Hands...

    One with 20th level augments, one with 24th level augments, and one with 28th level augments.

    If they updated the old 20th level epic items to have upgrade paths to 28, I'd end up farming two of those as well. Not that hard to make a lot of the older epic content more desirable to run.
