Re: Time to change your skirmish reward philosophy?
You're right, the potential for what they could put up for Skirmish barter is huge. On top of what they have now, they could even go so far as to offer unique items based on location (Bree-land, Shire, Ered-luin, Trollshaws, Esteldin, Evendim, Forochel, Angmar, Eregion, Moria & Lothlorien) only obtainable from Barter with camps at those locations.
You could go one step further and call for itemisation across Skirmish rewards, instance rewards and crafting to be optimised, which it isn't and hasn't been for a while.
One day i'd like to see two three piece sets of armour available from SM barter, two three piece sets available through instance loot (note not from Instance tokens, save them for Radiance barter if they still insist on that bile) and another two three piece sets available from crafting. That way, depending on what you want, you could have two different three piece sets, or three lots of 2/3. More variety = more joy.
