REBIRTH REBORN
There are 2 types of character rebirth.

Option 1:
levels reset to 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 (no reroll at 8x1) [easier option]

Option 2:
levels reset to 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 (with reroll at 8x1) [harder option. allows partial reclass]

Epic Army Rank/Honor is unchanged

Age is reset to 18

XP is reset to 0

Keep gold

Exploration is reset

Drachma is reset (so spend it wisely.. no reimbursements if you forget)

Quests are reset

Remort Bonuses enabled for the character

Retain Skills, Spells and learned..

Retain vaults and equipment
(equipment level restricts still apply)

(Reborn) tag before your name on the who list

Keep avatar light (option to recycle it to change stats will be added soon)

1/2 avatar bonuses.. that is,
for every 2 of something, 1 carries over until 9.40 at which point the full bonuses take effect again.

to reiterate - no refunds will be given on anything and rebirth is permanent.

this is what you get at the moment nothing more or less.

If you would like to be rebirthed please contact Breeze (until the rebirth proc is complete and tested)

Rebirths are manual so will be done as I get time to do them and
any unintended effects caused by rebirths are subject to change.
(meaning, for example, if you are a level 2 warrior casting firewind, we have a problem)


Current players generally look on the idea favorably... but within the bounds of certain reasons. The main advantages being the following...

* Replay of quests, which yields another 4.5k+ drachma.
* Faster progression of epic rank.
* A small rebirth bonus.
* Double xp

Other players point out some issues...

* Drachma eq, kind of needs redoing, a lot of items are worthless or completely inferior to in game pops.
* The epic rank system goes up exponentially, and the clasp improvements past the power rank probably aren't even going to be needed by most players.
* Unless you are maxing avatar shop, the double xp bonus isn't worth it.
* You'll have to pay the 890m level gold to get avatar again.

Breeze has mentioned some day he might make a rebirth shop or perhaps even review avatar shop, if that happens rebirth might be more interesting, but at the moment it's not really a "given" that the way forward is to rebirth... it really does depend on the players circumstances. Rebirth actually mostly came about by accident when Josiah (Ditheca) asked Breeze to replay the game... and a bunch of people said, hey, that's a good idea... can we all do that? Breeze then thrashed out this system.

A player with full eq, gems and drachma gear from years of impromtu quests really has no reason to rebirth other than to enjoy the game again.

Are you going to make a come back Baz? You know this place is the Hotel California...

"You can check-out any time you like, But you can never leave! "

Several old players are back, or have come back. You know how it goes.

Nice to see you Bazilus!

Yeah, this only works for those, who had reached 9x40 in the latest Sloth reincarnation.

I wonder if Breeze would add some bonus for returning players.

Granted, it's late for me, but maybe others could benefit from it.

Nice to see you too, Teron.

I love this world, spended lot of time for learning it in past. But It was too hard to lose everything that was done in 11 years of my play. Dont ready to spend time for obtain new items and other good things in second time. Reborn looks great, but not for my mortals. =)

Life too short for repeats. See you around.

Yeah, I feel you.

After the wipe it took me 2 years to come to terms with losing a wa/mo/th/ba shadow avatar.

I wonder if restoring 5 class characters would break the game. I mean, they'd have less classes and be less powerful, but would still be better, than 1lev characters.
