Iconic Heroes

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduced in Update 18 for those who pre-order the Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion, Iconic Heroes (or simply Iconics) are the new form of character creation, sort of like a mix of Veteran Status, 32 point build, and new race.

Bladeforged character creation screen
  • All start in special locations and are given enough XP to level to 15 (1,050,000 XP).
  • Are Race/Class combos with new racial abilities.
  • However, only 1st class level is forced to take in this creation process. So, they can either;
    • take a predefined path,
    • or customize their levels,
    • or reject training to train normally in a public instance (including multiclassing options), to level 15.
  • Receive their own set of starter equipment.
  • Can travel between Forgotten Realms and Eberron from the character selection screen, without purchasing the Hall of Heroes Passport account upgrade.

Four Iconic Hero options are planned to be released, the first already available for those who pre-order the expansion.
