Iconic Heroes

From DDO wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Introduced in Update 18 as part of the Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion, Iconic Heroes (or simply Iconics) are a 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 for 1st life characters).
  • 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.

The initial four Iconic Hero options:
