I played this game for a year before acquiring my first tome – and even then it was the +2 tome one can earn with favor, not something I looted.
That one tome opened the gates of DDO’s internal tome bestowing selection process* and in the years since I’ve gotten quite a few others. In chests, in end rewards, and of course, for achieving 1750 favor on other characters or in other lives.
* I know, I know, there isn’t really any such thing. I prefer to personalize the loot tables and assign them a malicious motive rather than having it constantly pointed out to me that bell curves and probability aside, I am just not very lucky
But I’ve never seen anything like this, and I am sure I will never see anything like it again.
Two tomes! In one end reward list! That isn’t even a 20th completion, just a regular old raid end reward.
I truly believe that True Reincarnation has killed off most of the usefulness of tomes. But still, two! In one end reward!
I wish I had saved this luck up for something a little more significant. Like a lottery ticket. But so it goes, two tomes when I can only take one and don’t really need either.
Looks pretty cool though, doesn’t it?
