I am just writing to see if there is anybody out there
that thinks that there should be another form of
reward for people that get a lot of xp other than
fancy colored coupons. I mean I personally do not
really care for coupons because I kind of like for
people to see that hard eq that i have earned. Maybe for
every redemption point we could get some hp, mana, or maybe
even a stat point. This is just my 2 cents and would like
to see what everybody else thinks. I just believe that
somebody that has put in more time and effort should
be able to have a character that is slightly better.
Again...just my 2 cents.

Maybe we should lower your stats?

This concept has been brought up TONS of times, by a number of
representatives of the player base, they are never gonna raise
your HP, Mana, MV, give you a extra practice, let you trade in a
practice, give you extra stat points, or otherwise give you an
innate advantage over other players.

i doubt any of that's 'innate,' as nobody i've met was born with
if, tho, there was to be such stat bonuses, i'd probably get myself
a nifty dex mage and get xp like a madman... at least 1 redemption point
a month if you simply invest a couple hours every day... nah. i'd much
rather go through 1 clanned char a month instead of feeling that i have
to stick with one char to remain 'competitive' in some fashion.

I wouldn't necessarily say it'll never happen, Rictor --
We debated the issue long and hard on the imm list, and the
version of redemption points you see is much pared down
from the original. We're still working on the system, and trying
to think up ways to increase the fun of higher levels
without causing an absurdity of scale -- i.e. one step down the
road so many icky muds have taken, where hp and difficulty just
keep going and going and eq gets better and better -- which is
really just a trick with numbers, and adds no real quality.
Hope my quick comments make sense :)
