The available enhancement selection is based upon a character's race and class levels and consists of improvements to those race and class strengths. For example, a Rogue would get enhancements to be better at hiding or at disarming traps and a Barbarian would get enhancements to have greater Rage length or more Strength while in Rage.
Unless otherwise noted, successive enhancements within the same line do not stack with each other. Only the highest bonus is used; for example, Rogue's Dexterity II overwrites Rogue's Dexterity I, yielding only a +2 Dexterity bonus, not +3.
Enhancements from a class stack with enhancements from a race, even when they give identical bonuses. Elven Dexterity and Ranger Dexterity can be taken together. Enhancements from multiple classes also stack, if they can be taken -- class enhancements that give identical benefits are often mutually exclusive. Such enhancements cannot stack because taking one locks the other out. Enhancements from different races cannot stack because characters are limited to one race.
If he wants, a player can reset all his enhancements once every three days by talking to his class trainer. The trainer will, however, charge a fee to his trainee.
A character gains an action point at each rank except those ranks which coincide with a level increase. Thus, there are five ranks per level, but only four action points. The one exception is upon reaching level 20, when the character gets the final 4 points all at once, since there are no more ranks to gain. Total enhancement points at level 20 is 80.
Select a category from the table below for detailed information about enhancements available for that race or class.
Prestige enhancements (PrE) are powerful lines of enhancements that allow a character to specialize his character further. Prestige enhancements give more benefits than standard enhancements, and they usually provide both passive benefits and new abilities. Because of the nature of these enhancements, each class's prestige enhancements are mutually exclusive. A character with multiple classes can have one prestige enhancement line for each class he or she has.
Each prestige enhancement line, with the exception of Archmage, has up to three tiers, with the first available at class level 6, the second at 12, and the third at 18. Due to their power, they also require the character to have particular Feats and standard enhancements as prerequisites.
Prestige enhancement lines are not the same thing as Paths, though they sometimes share names.
Capstones are powerful enhancements selectable upon reaching level 20 in one single class.
Enhancement reset costs
You may reset your enhancements once every 3 real time days for a monetary cost with your class trainer. The cost is Level^2 * 10 for heroic levels or 4000 platinum for epic levels 21-25. Alternatively, one can use 15 Astral Shards at any level to reset.
Pre Mod 3.3
The enhancement system was totally redesigned in Mod 3.3. Before that date, a player could only have four enhancements. However, one line of enhancements only counted as one enhancement. For example, a level 10 dwarf could only select Dwarven Armor Mastery III, he could not select the second nor the first and that counted as one of his four enhancements.
Back in that time, player could not save action points before leveling. In fact, if a player had unspent action points when leveling, he received a warning message.
Once a character had reached the maximum level possible at that time, he received a free action point every 20,000 XP so that he could change his enhancements if he so chose.
In Unlimited/Module 9, Capstone enhancements and Prestige enhancements were added. For each class 1 Capstone was implemented and it was announced that for each class 3 tiers of 3 different Presteiges were planned. However, even to this day, many of these Presteiges remain unavailable, limiting some classes' player choice.
On Update 7, class specific enhancements like Cleric Heal I has been replaced with generalized enhancements like Improved Heal I. This also brought down costs of the four tiers of the skill enhancements. Before, tier I, II, II and IV cost 1, 2, 3 and 4 AP respectively. Now, all tiers cost 1 AP each for generalized enhancements. This improved the viability of Prestige enhancements for many builds.
Update 18 Enhancement Pass
Total redesign in the user interface and the way AP is spent.
