    Is the Spinal Tap change retroactive or do I have to find another Epic Spinal Tap to make Sentient again.

    I think *Crafted, would make more sense then rafted here:
    A new NPC named Aelonwy Maelodic is available in the Eberron Hall of Heroes who will turn unwanted cosmetics gained from Daily Dice and deconstruct them into Glamered Dust, which can then be rafted into other cosmetics available from Daily Dice.

    alright, so its official. DDO revolves around Reaper. thanks for proving me right. this melee survivability toggle is a terrible decision and the barb changes was not needed in todays game outside reaper. after the amount of negative feedback I was hoping there could at least have been room for more compromise.

    also, feats are organized when talking to the NPC trainer to level. at least that's how it was on Lamannia.

    You are the one choosing not to play alts.

    Casual player now investing way less than I used to into the game, playing 1-3 months at a time and still want nothing to do with Reaper. #improvepuggrouping#alldifficultiesmatter

    No no they clearly ship them out on a raft so they're lost forever.

    I'm still hoping that healing spells and SLAs will get excluded from the touch range penalty. It is completely counter to group play to limit heal range, and the outlier case of heals on undead I don't think is enough to prevent that. Heals have always been an inefficient way in the first place to fight undead (turns/bursts/death to undeath/light spells/melee or ranged being much better), and it does more harm than good to prevent melee players from supporting each other. The fact that divine healing classes have melee trees, that other classes with divine healing spells (paladin, ranger, druid, etc) also have trees core to melee, all shows that healing and melee go hand-in-hand. The ability to support and melee is NEEDED. Please don't kill half the purpose of these classes just so that they can handle melee.


    Also please stop killing Night Revels mats. Just WHY?! To have any work that didn't perfectly spend gone. To have farmed and then have life come up before you spend gone. To not have the ability to farm now when you have time but not want anything atm but have it ready for next year is lame. I don't consider having to start over each and every time a good thing. Last year the outcry against an "encore" event was not because people hate Night Revels, but rather the unpredictability it caused against whether keeping mats was worth it or not. Why clog your inventory and bags with stuff that will be rendered useless for the next event? The encore made you either be frustrated for deleting everything and starting over because you guessed it wouldn't happen, or hold onto stuff and then annoyed you clogged space for no reason when the encore didn't happen like I did. Keeping mats solves all of those concerns. Aren't we well past the people that duped and you have the tools in place to catch new infractions? Mat deletion is a sore point for me on this event.

    It would have been nice back when the event was still on to have made it clear that this was going to happen. I know several people who just didn't bother farming the event weapons because of their reduced damage dice.

    And this is why I don't run Night Revels anymore.

    Why, oh why do you think that this is something that *any* player wants, and in fact makes us just think that you don't care how much we grind.

    Seriously reconsider this. It just a slap in the face insult to your player base.

    This feat is exclusive from Range stances, such as Improved Precise Shot, Archers Focus, Shiradi stances, and Warlock Blast stances.
    This feat is exclusive from the Enlarge Spell Metamagic toggle.
    This feat remains active when dead.
    The feat can be used with other defensive and offensive stances, in addition to Rage.
    What feat?

    Thanks for the update.

    Lol it was changed because there was a bug being tested in said quest and the dev decided to just make it shorter.

    actually there is one spot where new(ish) players always get hammered. I am in the habit of picking up newer people in Korthos (yes, they exist, and no, I have no idea how they find me!). Just keep in mind, not everyone is a seasoned vet and it *is* newbie island. so in the hope of getting more new people past korthos on their own, I think it might be a good thing.

    I thought the ingredient descriptions made it clear that they were going to expire before the next Night Revels.

    So...you're complaining that they followed up on their promise of making the ingredients disappear, which was their intention from the beginning, said so right on the ingredients, and...that's somehow their fault?

    Is it that room with all the cultists on top of the ice stairs and all of them have crazy acquisition range and all of them shoot acid splashes/magic missiles/arrows at you?

    I always needed to run away and heal up or let the hire take the fall even after Completionist.

    Poor choices ? Any MMORPG game destroy the mats after the event done. DDO didn't invent something new in here.
    And no game died because some players didn't like the event. DDO wouldn't be the 1st, that's for sure.

    Stop crying all over the forum already.
