Could we get a NPC that gives us sentient XP consumables?
Other nice features that might be a little harder : <tome of past lifes/completionist> (for DC and other interactions like the stuff coming to Trance)
"Complete all Monster Manuals" - (let us see mob HPs so we can get a feel for spell/skill scaling over all easier)

People have asked for all RXP off a NPC before too; it likely falls into the same typical response of "It's not something we're testing at current time; so we don't need people to suddenly have X or Y extra power they don't have on live. Lam is here for testing/trying stuff for the specific update and not for a free for all playground of trying out things beyond your normal level of gameplay."

In general I wouldn't have thought past-lives were something but the DC change seems pretty major and like the kind of thing that might happen again. Its not that people can't do it manually if they really want to.

I think Macrotechnic and the associated filigrees make a good case for why SxP has a clear purpose. It can be done in a very repetative fashion by buying stuff and feeding it one item at a time. This would just speed it up immensely.

I imagine if they ever get around to the reaper power-tree type overhaul we might get some tooling to support that.

The thing is, though, that people are going to use it that way, because its the only way to get that kind of sandbox functionality, and its a very useful function. The devs need to be pragmatic and just accept that inevitable reality.

If they want to get useful and actionable feedback from Lam, they need to make it more streamlined to draw up a sandbox character. Right now you can spend a good 30-60 minutes just going through all the manual processes to create the character you want to test, between transferring and reincarnating your Live characters, leveling them up, unlocking Destinies, assembling gear from all the various Loot Guy menus, grinding thousands of SXP with items one by one, shopping the Store for augments and extra stuff, etc.

If they made it faster and easier, then that's time you're not spending testing your things, and more time you can spend testing their things.

If they just left Lama open 24/7 as a sandbox server, then they'd get a lot more focused feedback when a new preview hit.
