Epic Refresh : Question Thread

PostAuthor: Jazz » Sun Feb 21, 2016 12:24 pm

May I ask why a PC needs to have 960,000 experience points? Hitting level 40 only takes 780,000 experience points.

Heya;

The epic refresh is intended for characters who have hit level 40 and been around for a bit, still actively playing said character, but unable to progress because they've hit their maximum. Consider the xp difference like an invisible 'unlearning' level in which a character learns to start down a new track.

If i am level 40 but want to lose 5 levels, I still have to re-level up to 40?

I'm fairly sure that's what you meant, but for clarification's sake...

Yeah. Following the xp removal:

Case 1:
If the PC is less than level 20, the dm will award enough xp to reach level 20 (then the PC will be in Case 2).

Case 2:
If PC is level 20 or above, no xp will be immediately awarded. The PC has to regain epic levels through normal play.

If you want to drop your pc to level 35, you fall in "Case 2."

Say one has a mage with AMS but reverts back to level 1 and during the re-leveling to 20, re-takes enough mage levels to still be able to cast ninth level spells. What happens to the AMS?

As long as you qualify for it and you want to still go that route, AMS will stay.

Any thought of expanding this to include more players, I'm around level 30, and really got bored with how I'd developed my character level wise, but like him as RP. Would like to redo levels to make him more playable and not loose out the RP and ingame history he has.

So you're saying that loss of regular xps is the only thing you lose? Not gear, or any plot or guild items, or other property you gained while adventuring, or crafting xps or levels you have, etc.?

Also, lets say you want to go back to before you picked that useless feat you have, but don't remember at which level you picked it....is there a way to do the forensic PC accounting easier and surer, before committing to the refresh?

yup, you and yup! you keep everything, well, except any levels you choose to lose.

I would need to look into that, I think the database can tell us these things, but this of course might not happen immediately due to the higher priorty of administration and other things :)

Sounds like a great idea. But not sure if it would make much of a difference where my character is concerned, I mean it would a little, but not enough to warrant the climb from lvl 20 all the way to lvl 40 again. Otherwise I would give it a go. Still a great idea though.

The purpose of this, in the end is to make favourite PCS playable again. Its a service.

Cant say it will be approved for anyone under 40, but you lose nothing by sending in a PM and letting the team have a look at your requests.

Our mission here is to get people happy to play again.

Cam

with Tor.. seriously how long would it take for you to get enough XP? And remember.. if you only need to go back 1.. 3 15 levels.. then you only need to get back from there. I know what you mean though.. I been thinking the same with Deo.. but you have time to crump!

We give back to level 20, only if you go under it, so you have no issue with gear and that sort of thing.

Right, but Tor would have to be taken down past lvl 20, and seeing how Tor caps out within a day or two at the tops,now...would be a long time from lvl 20 to lvl 40 and I may not have all that much time, soon, maybe. But I am giving this some deep thinking, well as much as my brain can do so. Oh! right, this might have been answered when someone asked about crafting skills, but seems rage skill might be a little different. But do not know for sure, so here goes. Losing lvls would or would not affect BRS Lvls? Because if it would, that would suck big time as it sure takes a long time to gain rage lvls for Tor as he only gets 1 or 2 rage exp per kill (usually), provided he lands the killing blow. And it sure gets lonely and boring running around cleaving things alone all the time. Which is about the only way a Barbarian character can get any rage exp. Sure do not get much when in a group that is for sure. And people wonder why Tor might get a little antsy when someone runs up to a foe Tor has almost killed and smacks it before Tor can get the last hit in. *laughs* But its all good. At least having rage exp to gain is a lot better then having no exp to gain when ones exp cap is hit. So that's a good thing. *smiles* Anyways, sorry for the long winded babbling, but this Epic Refresh is still a great Idea. So, thanks for that and all the hard work you and others all do to help things keep running and keep things happy.

Thanks again!

About the ragexp i dont know. But you can be taken down all the way to lvl 1 if you want and then given enough xp again to get back up to lvl 20. So yes, you can be taken down past 20.

Nice idea. Sorry if its been asked before but my Lvl 40 Cleric took some fighter and Rogue lvls which i regret now. Is it possible to remove all the fighter lvls if i have her lvl reduced ?
