In an unexpected move, Sony has quietly offered (I can't find any announcement anywhere) some free boosts via Legends of Norrath, greatly elevating their promise of a make good solution.  Be sure to check out the LoN game for 8 free packs + a Loot Card!  Most tankly folks are picking up this little guy... Idol of Talendor, which sits in your house looking very la-dee-da while offering 45 AC 150 HP trophy tribute.  To my understanding, you can choose any loot item from the most recent expansion pack for LoN.  Heavy melee dps classes may want to look at Dragon War Mask.
