    No, but everybody will get a little gold ribbon in the shape of the D&D logo to wear over their shoulder that does absolutely nothing. Oh, and a piece of cake that bugs out and doesn't work. Then Turbine will realize it didn't work then give another one out then realize the original did work and then we all have 2. Good thing is, we can get alllll the +2 tomes we want, now. Bound to character, of course.

    there was an article about it somewhere - it sounds like they will be giving electronic cards that are tradable and various combos give you various things - beyond that I have no idea.

    Because the update will coincide with the game's anniversary later this month, Turbine's come up with a new way to hand out presents. Players will get to collect cards with nostalgic artwork; the cards can be combined into pairs to create a prize. Figuring out the right card combinations and trading between players should keep the community busy and buzzing for the celebration. Ten new items have been created as rewards in addition to other goodies, and the team is quite excited to see how players take the update as a whole.

    Uhmm...no, no it doesn't. The actual anniversary was the first weekend of the month, they gave away TP codes here and on twitter for that. The celebration of the anniversary is all month long. The 27th is the 8th anniversary of DDO.

    As Shorlong says, Feb 27 is DDO Birthday! We all get birthday cakes in our inventory. This year it will probably be a Birthday Box though. Which is what they gave us last year?

    From that you click on the box and get a +2 CHARACTERISTIC tome of your choice, usable at 7th level. This has never been a skill tome.

    The first couple of years we got the Djinni Cake that played a trick on players, (gave us +1 tomes, back then all tomes were readable at first level), if you chose Wisdom and did not read carefully, you were hosed.(That was me on my Cleric of course).

    One year, Turbine had some boo boos and some players received two +2 tomes, and some players even received three +2 tomes.

    My advice, whatever the box is/does do it fast in case there is a faux pas. Turbine might attempt to fix the faux pas but they give you benefit of the doubt by just giving you another birthday gift.

    so your advice is to try and exploit something we don't even have yet?

    We're getting trading cards... +5 Tomes would be a pretty cool reward from those.

    I would settle for a promise by Turbine that DDO will still be in operation two years from now. I would also like a promise that we will continue to receive 20 quests/raids a year. Confidence in DDO's longevity is at an all time low.

    Not really an exploit.

    The first people that click on them can get royally gunked up and that is why Turbine re-issued the tomes to players. I don't exactly remember what happened since I was unaffected. I am sure a search of the forums will result in some enlightenment.

    thanks Cordovan for the Feb 28 correction. I just sort of knew it was at the end of February and last year we had almost all of March where if we created a character we had the box. Which was awesome.

    I would not want such a promise because it's impossible to do such things. I'm sure Turbine would promise to keep DDO online IF you can promise to keep it profitable.
    Cilon can be found on Orien.

    No sorry suggesting that players use up the items immediately in the chance that they may be "gunked up" in order to attempt to receive more than one issuance of an item is 100% planning to attempt to exploit.

    Based on recent events, I would expect that it will be a WB Djinni that has a 1/10 chance of taking away your job.
