    Not fight club, but something close, when turbine nerfed +4 tomes dropping on eh they forgot a few quests.
    Those quests also have higher chance of dropping store items, I see at least 1 store item per 2 runs, guild pot, sp pot, xp pot, I got lr heart from it.

    Also you should have played myddo lottery, I have like 5 lr hearts in my bank.
    This.

    I got a +3 greater heart once in a rare chest in WW explorer area. That was the only time in 4 years of playing that I got one in-game though. Others, as the poster above mentioned, I got from the lottery.

    Have never seen one in the gold/silver rolls.

    Please let me know if there are any other rewards that are still bound to character.

    Please note that when we fix this issue it will update the bind status on items that were previously rewarded from the Daily Dice. So feel free to hoard the rewards for the time being.

    Apologies for the issues everyone! Best of luck with your rolls.

    do they? around 7-8 lesser hearts have dropped for me, all of them before cap was raised to 25, but none in the last say ... 18 months or so

    so I think you should change the tense in your phrase to "they did drop"

    The way I see it, lesser hearts should be available using either epic fragments or COV, depending on which system for gaining hearts you want to tax with an additional use for the in-game currency. Character respeccing and redesign are an integral part of this game with all the enhancement tweaks and theorycrafting that goes on. A lot of people design sub-optimal characters when learning the game. A lot of vets stick with the game because they have altitis. The only real means to radically redesign a character is to either A) pay money or B) TR. Now, some people will be more than willing to do one or the other, and that's a good for the game. But some people are also likely to just think the game design mechanics are too complicated to learn, or too grindy for respeccing, and just up and quit rather than shell out money at this pay hurdle. If the net of those two mechanisms is fewer players in game its probably makes more sense to offer some means to earn in-game lesser hearts other than the ridiculous assumption that it can be earned from in chest looting because you heard that a guildie's uncle's cousin's brother's step-sister once looted a heart. I don't have the numbers, so can't truly say if Turbine is making fist fulls of dollars with lesser hearts, but I'd be willing to bet the money given up can be outweighed as a retention mechanism and those people may buy-in from other amenities (pots, tomes, etc).

    Alternatively, reducing the dollar cost of hearts may have the same effect. If every time you want to tweak a character you have to shell out +15 plus you're less likely to do it. But if you only have to shell out a few dollars then you may be more willing to buy in and will likely pay more in multiple smaller increments than you would in one or two large increments.

    Yea, they do drop, I got one 2-3 months ago.

    Because monetizing anythig can be widely supported with the justification that it can be had in game, even when theres a .00001% chance of ever getting 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.

    Default Looted a +1 a year ago

    I did loot a +1 heart about a year ago. Not from a chest but from a bookcase in one of the low level harbour quests.

    Personally I think this falls within something that Turbine should be able to profit on. Not everything should be able to be gained in game. I'm glad you can get free heroic, iconic and epic hearts through grinding. This is a convenience for people who want to exploit pure BF builds as something other than Paladin (I've done it) and it's entirely appropriate to pay for it.

    Meh, I think they charge enough for new content and earn enough from p2w items like mnem pots or raid bypasses. They don't have to make it easy to earn, but there should be an option somewhere beyond a 0,0000001% chance in chests.

    also, I am not fan of iconic concept. Racial tree is enough specialization, no need to set the first class level.

    I'm not a fan of iconics period. I'd rather see proper new races, classes or prestiges.

    That's it, Cetus. You're looting the wrong chests.
    Start looting the right chests, and that'll solve it.
