I would have to agree that instead of 1 or 2x GM pre-links (lapis included) in some EOM or other tiers, there should be 1 or 2x PLH (with lapis included) in a package. You think the recipient will say after getting/realize that the links he/she has that are illegal will be honest and send a ticket to have the lapis replaced? I think not.
If anything, they will attempt to pawn off and sell the item because they know it is only a matter of time before their gear gets reported in a ticket and one day their linked lapis (or gear) end up completely missing from their inventory for having illegal links...all due to human error that was not of their own making.
Please substitute this PLH(s) + Lapis(s) package to save us all some time and keep the stream of PvP activity moving forward without having to question illegal links in the future
