So I was discussing another MMO I used to play with my son called dungeons and dragons online aka ddo, and it got me thinking about a prominent feature in that game since this unconquered thing was put forth in an effort to get people rerolling new chars.
That feature is called “True Reincarnation”.
How it worked was you would reach level cap and have a set amount of skill points at your disposal. Things like Int, str, etc. But if you spoke to a certain npc he would essentially restart your toon at level one and you would have to regrind your way back to cap with double the XP requirements. You could go a third life and have triple XP requirements.
Now why would anyone do this? Because each time you reincarnated your toon you would be given additional stat points on top of the original points. Basically making you stronger than before.
I propose a similar idea for age of Conan. Char reincarnation. Max of 2 runs with XP requirements doubling each time but granting a player 5 additional feat points in each life for a total of 10 extra points above the 79 we currently get. I think this could change the game in a good way.
Obviously you would need to do something before hand like an “epic quest” to become eligible for reincarnation but just consider it. I’m sure some people would be opposed but since we aren’t getting any real content anytime soon, this could be something fun to engage people again instead of this hard mode thing which honestly, I personally have 0 interest in. Especially since I have no free slots. I would re level a toon though if it meant better rewards and additional feat points. And maybe some cool vanity stuff as well. Weapon vanity?
Also all AA and PvP levels would be reset each time making it a rewarding but daunting task to achieve.
What do you guys think?
- Good idea
- Bad idea
