    Phishing for phools is not a decent business strategy.

    Think of the devs, and their hungry children, and of DDO the game we love and must support...

    The devs are the first victims, think how much fun it must be to be in those internal meetings if you truly are a DnD enthusiast and love making games. Besides, are the devs earning a lot more since they started the freemium model in DDO? Do devs at zynga have better benefits that those in other companies, just because phone games were like printing money for a while?

    Pretty good. Pretty pretty good.
    I like Bigby's I've collected a few hundred by surfing the AH, and use them very frequently (especially when raiding). I wish there was a clicky, but I'll settle for triple-digit stacks of them lol.

    Random takes on new meanings.

    (Standard): You obtain 1000 Experience Points, and a Greater Experience Elixir.
    (Standard): You rolled 97 on your Daily Dice and earned a Items prize!
    (Combat): Daily Dice 97

    Also, Combat? I guess in a way.

    (Standard): You obtain 1000 Experience Points, and a Sun Flask.
    (Standard): You rolled 98 on your Daily Dice and earned a Items prize!

    I got you almost beaten, welcome to the club of winning a single completely useless and worthless Sun Flask (worth 1 copper) on a very high roll. A roll between 21 and 40 gives approximately 1k plat. A stack of Sun Flasks would much better fit for rolls between 41 and 60, never for the highest rolls.

    I can confirm this as well. I rolled 100 on silver and received a +2 AP tome. I was really suprised!

    You should put it on the Astral Shard AH, just to see how high the bids go.
    My take on "the grind": https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...=1#post6220972

    Ordinary humans have inhibitions that serve as a buffer against what we know is bad behavior.
    However, some people, by blaming others for their own bad behavior, develop a thought pattern that allows them to override self-control in order to achieve a selfish end.

    Unless there's unique P2W items on the table, I dont see what the problem is with this. Its a completely voluntary monetization pathway that provides no long-term in-game advantage, that's how a game should support F2P players.

    The problem only happens when the game "forces" you to gamble in order to max out your efficacy - ie unique power boosters within the lootbox system. But DDO doesnt do that.

    You could use it to pass Intim checks for optionals on chars with low intim? Crucible is one that comes to mind. Or that one low-level quest where you gotta park the NPC or she'll die and you'll fail :P

    Beat that!
    I got this exact same result on a silver roll last week.

    Disappointing to say the least.

    Wait for Mabar.


    "News from the Sharn Inquisitive news paper ! Huge truck of dwarven origin filled with LOTS of sun flasks heading for the plane of Mabar reported ! What will this insane dwarf do with these lots and lots and lots of sun flasks on Mabar ?"


    Besides, I once got 200 xp result of my silver roll. And that was with double xp bonus days !

    If that's what you think, my suggestion is to never even consider playing Guild Wars 2, because Black Lion chests will annoy you VERY much.

    I'm fine with useless tomes of skill to get purified shards for crafting, but otherwise I 100% agree with you.

    How about scrolls of holy aura?
