RIFT will be introducing four new souls in its 2.7 Update. The first to get a formal introduction is a Warrior soul: the Liberator. According to an early preview by MMORPG, this is a raid-healing Warrior.
The first new Souls since Storm Legion make landfall in RIFT 2.7, an update with expansion-level features that (among other things) enable characters from each Calling to play every role in the game!
Stay tuned this week and next for previews of each new Soul ahead of their PTS debut, and read on to meet the Liberator, a Warrior making waves across Telara for his arcane rites of … healing?
Heroic Characters ("instant Level 85" characters) will make their EverQuest debut on Wednesday, March 12, 2014:
Heroic Characters give players the opportunity to select any class and start out in EverQuest with everything they need to be successful! In response to both former and current player feedback, we wanted to provide an opportunity for players to return to play EverQuest without worrying about an overwhelming level gap. We've also been asked for a way to let players try out high-level classes before committing valuable time to leveling one.
Players should find it much easier to begin their adventures in Norrath when they start at level 85 with a full complement of gear, Alternative Advancement Abilities, and a unique mount. Regardless if you're a veteran player that wants to try a new class, a new player that wants to get caught up to your friends, or a player that hasn't visited Norrath in a long time, Heroic Characters are a great way for you to get in the game!
And do you want to hear the best part? You can have one for free.
Players that create an EverQuest Heroic Character between Wednesday, March 12 and Wednesday, March 26, 2014 can have one completely free of charge.
In addition, if you decide you want more than one Heroic Character we want to make that easy for you also. Heroic Characters will be priced at 3500SC.
