    Default Reaper XP Account shared

    Hi,

    Just throwing it out there; Why is reaper XP not account shared?

    It takes ages to reach a decent amount of reaper XP and people with multiple toons have a huge disadvantage.

    I'm a bit puzzled why it isn't account shared?

    Would be fun to have a toon in the TR train, as well as still a toon at endgame for some variety while not feeling you miss out on all the good XP you can obtain while TRing.

    I agree it should be pooled for cosmetics, but not for trees.

    While this is obviously a ploy to keep us on a hamster wheel forever, like the insane drop rates in Slavers, I think they have created a system by which new players will finally get fed up the insane divide in power levels once they realize the time commitment and bugger off and do something less stressful like get a doctorate degree.

    I disagree, the sharing of experience across characters makes no sense. I currently have many toons, some I have spent much time getting past lives, epic destinies and all the other character building perks. I am now focusing on getting two of those characters some reaper experience. The last thing I would want to see is my best toons farming experience so that my first life, under geared toons can plow through reaper at lvl 2. Makes no sense to me. Reaper is supposed to be a progression not a leveling mechanic. The fun with Reaper is having to rely on others to complete tasks. Those others that join my parties would hopefully be as prepared as my character, not an under geared character.

    Your not getting it pooled buy it would still cost 3x as much points to do 3 trees

    for 3 guys so you buy 3 more xp tomes run a few on your alts ok

    then you would either use it on the one toon your running or divide it

    Kinda defeats the purpose.
    Why would a character that never stepped into reaper gain full benefit as if it was living in there.
    Actually imho all reaper gained gear should be btcoa as well

    I'm also of the opinion that it should be shared by all alts on an account.

    I do believe that DDO provides too few incentives and too many disincentives to play alt characters.

    Basically you run your alt with only a couple of epls and or etrs

    Then you really bring the power gap closer from vets to new players

    vs us running 3x everyhing full zerg on toons no fail so the new players

    can contribute ya that would suck can't have them contribute now

    Actually compared to the economy system of proper games like bdo, ddo never had a established economy

    The reasons I feel Reaper XP was character vs account...

    The Reaper Trees

    If this was limited to the cosmetic item vender unlock and those items were bound to account and not character, then Reaper Account XP would make sense.

    With the addition of the Trees for bonuses while running Reaper brings a specific reason to limit that XP to the character, as we don't share XP for Heroic, Epic or Epic Destinies currently account wide.

    Ok but the gap now between new players and vets is huge in reaper

    There not really ready cant contribute much so they will get discouraged

    I just think its a good way to equalize things and help bridge the gap

    Reaper Trees character based. NPC vendors Account based. That would work for me.

    I used to play 7-8 characters regularly. With the whole tr/ir/er thing this was whittled down to 4 or 5 and I think reaper may cause me to drop a couple more .. at least for a while.

    I guess the flip side is I am now playing a different way and will hopefully become a better player because of it. Miracles CAN happen )

    That would be pointless everyone would still run there 3x everything mains

    And there would still be no endgame

    I wouldn't mind it being account wide. I see no problem with it.

    The only caveat I'd add is it would require at least 1 TR/ITR/ETR to activate so you don't have people farming easy reaper exp with iconics since some the easiest/most efficient quests are around the lvl 15 area and player power is exceptionally high compared to quest difficulty in that bracket.

    I see this as no different then BtA items. My level 2 alt has a weapon that does 6d6 that I got using my main character.

    I mean what exactly would it hurt to enable this account wide? People that only play 1 character can go on playing 1 character and those that enjoy alting it up can enjoy not falling behind in reaper.

    I don't really understand. You as a player still did a lot of reaper content, and it is a progression, but more for your account rather then the specific character. I don't mind having more power on a 1st life toon if you already did a lot of reaper on another toon.
    How is it better that you join on your uber completionist with farmed out reaper XP rather then a 1st lifer with some additional benefits that you gathered on another toon? o.0

    Ok but i don't see a problem with running iconics to 30

    You lose a ton of xp when u hit epic so it equalizes

    I think i know what u mean though delete rinse repeat gotchya

    but you could make it so you have to tr to delete and get the reaper xp added per toon to the pool

    Would solve that problem
