    I think so, but we had a community request to bring it back and it seemed fine to do.

    Not everyone always has enough Remnants saved up for everything they want every time Champ Hunter comes around

    I would be quite satisfied if this became a quarterly Bonus Week

    This is probably the one "bonus weekend" I have never understood. Honesty don't get why all items aren't available at all times.

    Agreed. It also takes up a weekend space for another type of "bonus weekend" unnecessarily.

    Agreed. Even if they don't want to keep them all the time (for some obscure reason), they could always just setup a regular schedule. Like first week of every month or so.
    It just feels weird that a vendor takes the place of a bonus weekend.
    We want more Monster Manuals.

    Artificial scarcity driving "demand".

    I think it's dumb - but I can see the perceived allure of it from SSG's perspective. Not my circus, not my monkeys - however.

    Demand for what? None of the things you can redeem Mysterious Remnants for are sold in the DDO Store I don't think.

    They won't lose any revenue from making this stuff available all the time so I don't see any real negative to doing so.

    Although I like the Double XP Daily Dice weekends, have always thought that that was kinduva small bonus especially for folks that aren't into that.

    I doubt Champion Hunter will be promoted to permanent, but maybe these would be good candidates to make into a combo bonus weekend thing? Just spit-balling it out there.

    You mean combining the special Mysterious Remnant items with the Double Mysterious Remnants weekend? Yeah, would certainly be an improvement!

    The expanded rewards offered during the Bonus Days, as opposed to the dearth of normal. I get your point, and I agree with you - which is why I put demand in quotes. IMHO it's a false premise, but my HO matters little in the grand scheme of DDOville. /shrug

    it takes a long time to build up remnants. If you have a champion hunter week its not like im gonna go farm more remnants. In fact its 100% impossible to do so. The only effect of having the items show up for a short period of time is so that people who miss the event will not be able to get them. I don't understand the logic of not making the items available all the time.

    Actually, scratch that. I have NEVER heard why the dev's decided to release the items in this manner. I have heard plenty of speculation from players but no reasoning from developers.

    I've never spent any of mine, and I've never taken a look at what I can trade them in for. What are the best "limited time" things?

    It's also been over a year the last time we saw a 50% guild renown bonus, this one seems long overdue.

    Is there any good way to farm remnants enough to make this work if I have today and tomorrow?
