    Default Daily Dice roll 100=50 xp sentient

    so its very rare to roll 100 even on a silver roll maybe once every 6months well that's what its like for me . Now I know it is just a silver roll but to get 50 sentient xp as a prize is very poor for a top prize.

    It is equally rare to roll a 52, or any other number for that matter

    I'm always amazed by people who can't tell the difference between "free" and "included in the purchase price at no additional cost"

    Not exactly my experience. I keep the xp gems in my shared bank sometimes as many as 10-12 at a time. When my shared bank gets too full I've been passing them to a storage alt that holds all my cosmetic stuff. I want her to be able to "try on" the celestial armor blanks I haven't gotten around to mirror yet. Yes I'll have to play her more eventually but meh. At most I've had 8 - 100xp gems in there at one time. Never had 8 gems of 500 and better xp in there at once. If I'm as likely to roll 1-20 as 81 - 100 that should be the case sometime. But its my anecdotal experience... I'm sure in the grander scheme of things someone consistently rolls on the opposite end of the spectrum to make up for my poor experience.

    Same here. I cannot even count the number of times I've rolled several ones or entirely 1-20's across the servers each day.
    I CAN say that I have never rolled more than a single 100 on consecutive days (let alone the same day) and I can also say I have never rolled entirely 81-100 across all servers in a day.

    It is what it is.

    But yeah, the mathematicians will jump on and act like all RNGs are created equal and that RNG=math, even though RNG's are not random, they are only programmed to simulate randomness. Some do better than others. Technically speaking they are pseudo-random (or PRNG).
    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.
    - My opinion on exploiters and cheaters blaming SSG for unfair punishment.

    Except it's not, because a 52 is the same as 41-42-43-44-45-46-47-48-49-50-51-53-54-55-56-57-58-59-60.

    100 is only the same as 100.

    You have a 1 in 5 chance of rolling a 52. You have a 1 in 100 chance of rolling 100.

    I once shot 3 bolts from my Repeating Crossbow and wondered why I did not hit anything till I saw that all 3 rolls were 1. So yes sometimes rolls are bad and sometimes they are good but regarding Silver rolls why complain about something that is FREE?, no one is forcing you to do a daily roll and in fact you can always NOT do it

    Sometimes I pull one out just to watch it die over and over. That's how much I hate hires.

    True. Its so easy to do it though. Its like what? 3 clicks? Dice symbol on character name, selecting silver, roll. Done in less than 5 seconds. If it was as difficult to roll free daily dice as it is to make a bug report... yeah based on my rolls I'd just learn to ignore it eventually. (Insert corrupt-a-wish here) ;p

    Also, my rolls do NOT encourage me to log onto each server to roll ever let alone each day. That's way too much effort for 100xp. Even the times I've been VIP, I wasn't too sussed about making sure to get all my free gold rolls because those were invariably lame too.
