Free Heroic Character

Postby Caladain » Thu Mar 16, 2017 4:16 pm

In short, log in all your accounts before march 31st and you'll get a free heroic character on each account. You must fully log in the account past the character select screen.

Unlike the last promo you dont need to make the heroic toon by the 31st, and if you delete the toon afterwards you still have the heroic character slot. It works just like a paid for heroic character.

Be careful on your inventory ui screen as the upgrade button is clickable on any character.

That is my question, so if you have say 8 characters, can you upgrade all 8 to level 85 using the heroic character button?

Thanks for the heads up. Used them on Rogue since she had least amount of aa. Then on free accounts, the Enchanter, man those AA Runes are no joke, upped my survivability big time. and Made a Necro since I buffed enchanter.

For those wanting to try out multiple classes, you can make a new free account and get a heroic character on that account as well. I took advantage of this by making a druid with the explicit intent on using it to forage for me. Lol. I may make something of every class just in case I want to try out something new. Would be interesting at least to be something different for a change.

So... If you have done a heroic before, in a previous year, does this now allow us to make a new one in another slot.

What class goes well with a mage?

think any of the pure casters are good with a mage, and another mage is good as well. Shaman is good too for the defensive and offensive proc buffs.

That's what I did so I could make a tank class! So that's why I have Genagar the warrior! Can't complain about free heroic toons on a free account! Now he's parked in DH hoping to leach a few DH missions for some easy levels! Forget what class I used it on on Skotomo's account! I haven't used it yet on Nerple's account, though Monk and Wizard may be the only real options left on that account! If it hadn't passed the expiration date yet I'd make a few more accounts and definitely include a wizard so I could xloc myself around Norrath. Tired of constantly begging guildies and Toadsbuddy for ports to Pillars!

It was certainly nice while it lasted. I made a warrior and a druid like this. When I went to make a shaman on the 29th, they apparently closed that loophole and I was unable to make it heroic. That's okay because at least I got to accounts to 85 for free. Lol.
