    Default False advertising again

    This is the second week in a row where the DDO Store freebie is not delivering what's promised.

    Last week, the code for Greater Elixir of Angel Tears instead gave the non-greater version.

    This week's code gives Barkskin +2, while the advertisement says +3.

    That's all.

    It's OK, I'm sure you'll be able to get a full refund...

    Obviously a typo/miscommunication.

    I agree with Kayalissa. In my mind, "False Advertising" implies an intentional attempt to deceive. One need not ascribe malice to a fairly obvious pair of goofs. If I were the one responsible for setting up such things, upon activation, a coupon for a Potion of Stoneskin would probably delete all your boots.

    Wait. You actually bothered to use a coupon for Barkskin Potions?

    The only reason to use it is to cast it on other players who have clearly gone through a lot of trouble with cosmetic gear. The potion will not do that.

    Those are strong words for a simple issue. I'm sure you'll gain a lot of traction with staff as a result of it.

    Well I tried to make the post sound neutral, perhaps I failed. Maybe I was surprised that this happened in two consecutive weeks.

    How about this new title: Honest mistakes in advertising, twice in a row

    As for why I even grabbed these useless pots... I don't know. For the science. Free stuff, gotta grab that.
