Revamped New Player Experience

When creating a new character, players are given the option to create a Custom Character or create a pre-built Archetype that begins at level 25.

Archetypes

Designed for players that want to get into the action, at character creation players will be able to select the option to create a character as normal or create a new level 25 character from one of six race/class selections.  These options remove the choices that would have been made from leveling including talents, Promotions, and stat point allocations in order to send them to PvP in Skypoint!  When creating an archetype character, you can modify the character’s body type and visual customizations.

The available Archetype Characters are:

  • Stoneborn Knight
  • Nethari Confessor
  • Fae Assassin
  • Half-Giant Champion
  • Human Cleric
  • Elken Templar

Custom Characters

The option to create a level 1 character to build is still available, but the experience has been updated.  The previous NPE for custom characters has been substantially updated to improve a new player’s ability to get into Skypoint and beyond:

  • Item and XP rewards for several quests have been adjusted
  • Many non-essential quests have become Side Quests to reduce the amount of time required to progress through the Main Questline
  • Side Quests are now tracked separately from the Main Questline
  • The “Low Sec” zones: Arborium, Lunarium, and Solarium have been removed.  The quests associated with them will be moving to the Skypoint zone

Alliances and Alliance Scoring

  • Alliances now can contain up to 15 guilds
  • The Alliance Leading guild now receives the accumulated Conquest points for its sub guilds
  • This is reflected in the Leaderboard and the final Conquest ranking and rewards.
