I hope it was not intentional that the reward for raiding on beta was a 1 charge instance reset item. This is virtually useless. With the addition of instance reset items in the past this has become a requirement for raiding with certain guilds. The ones in the past from race to trak and the proving grounds are nice for people's main characters, however if one wants to switch to an alt you're kind of out of luck. Having a claimable reset item that could be put on any character would then make that alt viable to raid full time.

It certainly was not advertised as a one-use item at the outset..per the announcement from when beta testing began:<br /> <br />Raid Beta Reward<br /> <br />Participate in developer-guided raid testing on the beta server and earn:<br /><ul><li>Planes of Prophecy Beta Instance Lockout Reset potion: This consumable potion will reset all persistent instance lockouts on your character. This potion may only be used once every 10 days, and no other lockout reset item may be used while the timer is in progress.</li></ul>The once every 10 days comment makes it sound like you can use it more than once but only once every 10 days.<br /> <br />Could we please get some clarification on this as well as a fix if the intent was for it be usable more than once?

You can do the Beta Test more than once, so you get more than one item

Of the other players we checked with, since we were all in vent together, only 1 other got the reward. Maybe you were thinking of the other raid you were handling at the same time?<br /> <br />I know there's a lot to shuffle, and we appreciate the opportunity to be part of the testing. I'm sure you'll help resolve this ASAP. Thanks! <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" />
