    It should just be permanent, and create other exciting bonus that will actually involve players to play, and not just check a single vendor.

    I like this new Reaper XP Bonus, and I wish Cordovan would sit and talk with his boss and try to create more and longer bonuses, not just for a weekend.
    Bonus length is a different issue to what i was talking about, which was more about whether a reaper bonus in and of itself was 'ok' or not.

    I would certainly prefer most bonuses were at least 9 days long, friday-sunday, and weekend-only bonuses could then potentially be higher and more rare.

    I would still like to see... Something that tests character versatility and player adaptability rather than character focus strength and quest knowledge.
    I play the quests for the content of the quests not just as an XP/min merry-go-round.
    Actual play experience is worth infinitely more than theorycrafting...

    I've covered both the Remnant Vendor "bonus" issue and the "lenght" issue of these events.

    And I agree. Every single MMO that I played has week (weeks!) long events. There are million of "bonus weeks" that Turbine could simply adopt, to incentive people to actually play and not simply wait a vendor, buy an item and log off.

    It is well into tomorrow. There is nothing on the launcher and no "DDO Bonus Days!" post in the Announcements & Contests forum. I've run some reaper dungeons and have not noticed any special RXP boost. Is this actually happening?

    Generally starts on Thursday afternoon (EST/EDT). Which, IMO, is fine for a weekend bonus.

    This will be happening soon.

    Personally think the remnant vendor's items should always be available and the bonus should only be the increased chance of getting remnants. I also think the increased chance should come around more frequently then 2 or 3 times a year.

    This.

    Also, make +7 Tomes a permanent fixture in the Store.

    I'd like it if the items were always available but on the hunter weekends they had, say, 20 or 25% discount on the cost of all the items. As to how to implement it, I think behind the scenes it'd probably be easier to set it as 2 identical item lists with different costs & only 1 set as active, rather than trying to code an actual discount mechanism into it.
    I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was, now what's it is weird and scary to me.

    ..for the like the 3rd week in a row, meanwhile enjoy the 20% bonus to the xp to the difficulty meant to not be played by most people..

    Ever seem like the community and the community spokes person are out of sync? I like more xp on all difficulties but i too have been waiting patiently for that vendor to return and I see the same thing every week.. just sayin..

    as a smaller company you should have the power to react to the player base and not have that structured 36 week schedule of not always pertinent bonus weeks.

    That is a really clever idea.

    No offense to you Cordovan as I Know you are passing the information forward, but this seems to be the reply we have been getting for a while now. I hope It is for real this time.

    Could someone add some "worthwhile" items in there, with the emphasis on -->worthwhile<--.
    +3& +4 remnant tomes and lv 28 versions of the bracers and cloak?
    Maybe some new cosmetics or a pet?

    I have a 100+k remnants wasting space in my shared ingredients bank.
    When i started playing people warned me that i would be stockpiling ingredients that would turn useless over time, i just never thought it would happen this fast.
