I really like the idea of using this method for giving out items, but feel that it is too easily exploited by other shards and alternate characters to receive items that they don't deserve. I understand that everyone getting an item is not a bad thing, just don't feel that brand new chars from other shards should be able to get these items. Please find another way to give items out. After the event with a much shorter timer would be an easy fix. Although I am sure there are better ways.
