These new Level 50 Heroic Characters will be purchasable on May 15, 2024 when servers come up after the update!

    Let’s break down the benefits you can look forward to with a new Level 50 Heroic Character. Here’s what you’ll receive upon purchase:
    • 2,500 Platinum
    • Horse Mount (Fast Speed)
    • Two 16-Slot Bags
    • Spells
    • Full Set of Equipment, including weapons, armor, and a charm
    • Food, Drink, and Ammunition
    FAQ
    For the new level 50 Heroic Characters, here are some frequently asked questions and answers:


    Q: How do I create a new Heroic Character?
    A: Heroic Characters can be purchased in the Marketplace under the Services category. Once purchased, head to the Character Creation page and you’ll see a dropdown on the right that shows the available upgrade options and the quantity of each entitled on your account. After choosing the attributes for your new character, choose the Heroic Character option you want to apply from the dropdown. Then use the “Heroic Character” button to enter the world.

    Q: How do I upgrade an existing character to be a Heroic Character?
    A: Heroic Characters can be purchased in the Marketplace under the Services category. You can upgrade your character from either the Character Select or Inventory windows. Locate the dropdown that lists the Heroic Character options available, select the one you would like to use, and use the “Upgrade Character” button to apply the upgrade.

    Q: What expansion is needed to unlock the new Level 50 Heroic Characters?
    A: Planes of Power.

    Q: Will the Level 50 Heroic Character be refunded if I upgrade it to a higher-level Heroic or delete the character?

    Honestly id rather see this be implemented in Luclin than PoP, but it existing is better than it not.

    Only level 50 seems kinda pointless must be for people who play on TLP's? Whats next a baby heroic for 25's?

    My first thought was "Oh wow, maybe i'd consider this for Teek since the grind to 60 at server start will be brutal."

    Planes of Power requirement? Meh. I no longer see the point of this.

    hey, If it puts more money in the pockets of darkpaw than the krono farmers, im all for it.
  12. Meeko Developer(Code)

    There isn't currently a mechanic to pause experience gain and one isn't being introduced with this feature.

    They'll be usable on all servers with PoP unlocked except Vaniki. The new TLP servers will unlock them once they reach PoP as well.

    Yes. Like the existing Heroics, the new ones will also be usable on a persona.

    You should change the wording on this one:

    Q: Will the Level 50 Heroic Character be refunded if I upgrade it to a higher-level Heroic or delete the character? 
    A: Yes, though you won't get a refund of the consumable pack.

    I doubt what you paid will be refunded but what you mean is it can be used again. You will get CS tickets asking for the money back.

    Unless you are giving us the $25 back?

    lol thats not gonna happen keep dreaming though.
  15. fransisco Augur

    I'm sure it'll work like other heroics. If you delete a heroic character, you get the token back to make another.
  16. CatsPaws No response to your post cause your on ignore

    I am sure too. I am suggesting to them they change the word "refund" to "re use" or something on that line. Save them hassle.

    Wish there was some way to apply this on a character with the 85 / 100 boosts. As it is, a collector has no way to get the mount that comes with the 50 heroic.

    Also, I think PoP may be a bit soon to make this heroic available, since progression servers still have a healthy low-level population at that point...

    Otherwise, cool idea:)
