    Default There needs to be a way to get lesser hearts in-game

    Every time I decide to iconic TR into an iconic, I need to figure out a way to take that stupid mandatory level out. Why is it that we have in-game ways of acquiring TR hearts, Epic hearts, iconic hearts, but no lessers? This needs to be changed. I'm not spending 1100 turbine points every single time I decide to iconic TR, its asinine.

    They do drop, they are just extremely rare.

    I've used +1 stones on a few iconic lives, but only when I intended to stay in that life for a few months or more. Otherwise I just make it work with the level I am forced with.

    It really would've nice if we had a way to gain +1hearts in game.

    That being said I just deal with the one class level for the most part as long as I am planning another TR soon.

    I am using a build to farm my epic PL ATM so I did use a Heart but, if I was going to do a few Icinic lives I would just leave 1 class level alone.

    I'm aware that they *drop* in game. However, I probably looted a 100,000 chests since the last one I pulled many years ago.

    Yes, this ^^

    Too bad they took myddo lottery away. I have around 4 LR hearts from there.

    I miss the MyDDO lottery.... I realize that we have daily dice rolls now, but the lotto seemed better. I remember there being a larger variety of stuff to win. Although it is entirely possible that I'm remembering wrong.

    It was better than silver dice, when we are talking about free.
    It had a lot of items, tokens, tr heart, lr heart, pots, I forgot most of it.
    But you would win lr heart at least once a month, probably why they stopped with that.

    I agree they are much too rare. I've pulled one in the last 3+ years.

    Yeah like I only looted 1 (one) +1 heart - and I play on a daily basis since 2010. But I maybe d00med.
    Aezechiel (Caster, 8th life) - Kakophonyc (Bard, 2nd life) - Larsenkarden (Cleric, 3rd life) - Lewela (Bard, 6th life) - Punkcanard (dual deathnip centered halfling tempest 3rd life) - Usuldur (Melee, completionist) - Sylentbob (ranger) ... and a couple of mules

    What kind of a response is this? I should loot "proper" chests?

    This makes my point, we need a way to acquire these things like we can the other hearts.

    Agreed. Played this game around 5 years now and I believe I've only ever pulled one. Especially with so many people needing +1's to LR out iconic mandatory levels. Or maybe Turbine implemented mandatory iconic levels solely to boost LR heart sales and laughs at threads like this.

    im sure Turbine thanks you for the hamster food they are able to buy with your money.
    Gary Gygax quotes

    The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience.

    There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you are involved in, whether its a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.

    Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, its not a game.

    When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, than many online and computer run RPGs will move toward actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of "being there" anymore than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

    The secret we should never let the game masters know is that they don't need any rules.

    There had been certain chests with a higher rate than "nothing" to give shop items. If I remember correct, Menech wilderness chests were droping XP and guild renown pots from (very rare) time to time. I do not know which chests are more likely to drop hearts, though.

    "some chests have higher chance of dropping hearts" sounds like another urban legend until proven otherwise (by a dev)

    It would be nice, but I'm sure what they would do is make it cost 4200 vcomms.

    So then you would either need to spend another week farming enough comms to fix your build the following life. or play through as a 1 cleric 19 wiz sun elf (for example), until you got enough comms, at cap, to get rid of that 1 level, or just itr again.

    No idea about chests with higher chances, but I did pull a +1 lesser heart some 6 months ago from one of the 2 chests from the Yuan-Ti rare in High Road. It was the only one I ever pulled, and no I never won one with the lotteries either (I did win an astral diamond once which went to the guild). So yea, they are and always have been pretty darn rare.

    Not only what Cetus said, but you are just blatantly wrong and spreading false information Ivan. LR+1 heart pulled yesterday in Haunted Halls, Miior's chest by a friend of mine with me in group.
