Hi,

I was wondering what the EQ item would be this year?

And will there also be a something from Legends of Norrath like last year?

If anyone got screenshots that would be awesome. I remember seeing screenshots last year before I ordered my tickets.

Anyway thanks in advance

A shield?  That would be a great addition to my berserker.

Could you guys maybe rethink this?

A shield has first of all the disadvantage that not every class can use it, thus you effectively create an imbalance.

Second point: this thing is totally out of character of the game. I mean, it shows some sort of advertisement for the game INSIDE the game. How can you expect to be in the game when you run around with that?

Third: it looks ugly (but this is a subjective point).

Bottom line: Vanguard gets a flying mount (extremely cool), EQ2 a statue (looks nice and has status on it, so some use), EQ gets ... that.

PLEASE reconsider this.

Not that I want the shield ornamentation, but last year's EQ reward was more or less a frisbee. The mount was from LoN.

True, but the frisbee was usable by everyone, a unique idea, stayed "inside the game" and was fun for many.

Can't say that with the shield ornamentation, no not at all.

The shield is butt ugly and a terrible idea, not every class uses shields, some classes probably don't have a shield to use it on.

All the other games have much better gifts.

 My main being a warrior only has one shield and it already has the Childs Play ornament on it, I would have also liked to seen some thing I can have showing all the time and not just when im MT and out of abilities for 2 minutes a week.

I have to agree...this item was not well thought out and just seems like a last minute creation.  I dont think anyone in their right mind would actually walk around with it.   I was enticed with the idea this being the 10th year anniv.  FF that the in-game item(s) would actually be something worth showing off and not hiding.  A mount....a rare illusion...something.

How many Monks, Rangers and Rogues have a shield to put it on if they were stupid enough to use this ugly ornamentation?

We get more than the Shield Ornament for the Fanfaire. Just wait till it all happens. If you were there you probably heard about the other things coming our way.

It doesn't matter if we get more, the shield is still a bad reward... because it can't be used by every class.

Also, compare it to the rewards of the other games... and you will see... its lame.

I also think that a shield would be an interesting one. But many other games have such wonderful gifts.
