    I'm so tired of being jerked around by Turbine. How many frickin' chests did I fail to get maximum returns on because they DENIED this for so long?!?

    I quit. Consider this my 2 week notice. Best of luck to you all. Pfft.

    You know....I find it disturbing when Samera starts a new thread and posts a bunch of untrue things. What has this game come to?

    In the case that our best +CHA items are less than +4, is an Eagle's Splendor an acceptable substitute? In the case say a +2 or +3 item, which is better, the item or Eagle's? Finally, do odd numbers count. Eagerly awaiting further details.

    That totally makes sense! In addition, I've found that characters who have had their first name rerolled over 100,000 times get capped level loot in all chests! (Or was it 100,000,000 times?)

    Ah....I believe you have this backwards Samera.

    Circling counter-clockwise produces a "dispelling" effect in pagan rituals, while a clockwise pattern would produce the "summoning" effect desired for the appropriate kewl lootage. Unless the dispelling portion of the ritual is intended to work with the "looking for ham" step to get rid of any icky smoke flavoring that may remain in the ham material component. (Since we all know that "smoked ham is not real ham" around here...)

    I will immediately forego levelling up any of my characters for the next month in order to devote all my time to field tests of this procedure. No, no, don't thank me: all for the greater good of an improved DDO experience.

    And also, to have better loot, after you done the following steps, /death when targetting the chest also gives better loot. You must refuse the rez 4 times and accept the fifth, and the rez must come by scrolls, not from spell points or rings, otherwise you will get masterwork.

    I'm not sure about the LFH aspect, but I can add that coming into a quest late because RL "happened", especially to FBTG, guarantees better loot. Last week I saw a +5 dex ring and a shortsword banisher come out (the banisher was even the correct rr for said late person).

    The corollary is that all the people who did the work while you were away, got items of deception, power III, or gear 6 levels lower than the effective quest level. My specific pain: "Oooh... dextrous boots and no worthless modifiers... hello +4 and or +5 stat item... +3... L7??!!! You have got to be !&#*(%@#%."

    Also, let's not forget about improving your von6 raid loot by first ddooring to the front of von6 before opening the chest. The entire raid should do this to ensure the best loot. There's also something about getting hit by the Titan laser repetitively, though only Kargon knows the correct formula.

    I like their LOTR april fools joke a little better, but this one is still pretty good.

    Question though, are you sure we shouldn't be flanking the chest?
