Rank costs have been altered. Most have had a coin reduction, others have had rank point reduction as well. Names have changed. Some flags have changed in bundles. A few new top end ranks have been added.

(P)Arctic Legend          0/1  5 100000 Turns you into a Legendary   
                                            character.                   

The cost of legendary ranks has decreased. Legendary ranks now cost the the amount of rank points multiplied by 10,000 in coins. For example, a legend rank that costs 4rp will cost 40k coins. The only exception to this is legendary ranks that are 1 RP, which are 12,000. I did this because they seemed too good for the price otherwise.

The effects of legendary ranks remain the same except for the Healing Cloud rank. I have removed the +2 int bonus on this and replaced it with +20% healing done. This is a compromise for me, I'm not prepared to return healing cloud to its former state - but this will make druids healing substantial.     

As always, post feedback below.

Nice - what will max rank be?

A few things:
Funny you can get fire/ice/etc ranks, free action and so on, I like :)
But I don't like is the ability to buy +3 spell mod, I think it should be changed to, say, 5% damage done instead. It's just so damn'd strong to lower ppl/mobs saves and deal full dam/effect, especially with gear and skills on top of it.
Please add skill ranks, like +bash, +rescue, +disable ..class skills
and why was +Concentration removed??? Maybe it's just me, but it's so nice having your chars being reliable - the heal will come, bash will likely land, the rescue will work, I won't die from failing disable on this chest - list goes on :)

What is the current player-base opinion on the rank system as it pertains to ranking past rank 30?  It is a serious grind to get to rank 40 or dare say rank 50!?!  Why not make the ranking faster to rank 50 and expand rank system so you don't cap at rank 50?  What would it hurt to give folks more ambition to rank 1 character instead of playing 4? 

I personally would love to see this change to push, it would make me want to play longer into a wipe to see that carrot of "woah rank 50 is not nearly the 9 month grind and I can get X". 

Any thoughts on making ranking easier from 30-50 and not capping it?  Downfalls/upside?

Love this idea.  Would be awesome to be able to upgrade your legendary even further.  Legendary was a big step for players, having a legendary shielded steelskin tank would be the tits.  I support this 100%. Raise rank cap to 100 ease grind to 50

Free action for 13 rp?  Crazy but might make things easier in pk and big fights. Was +healing ranks removed? Painful if you do get wiped in pk and your heals become completely useless

Theyre there, just didnt paste. Also heal has been changed to heal for full hp regardless now, so on a fundamental level that won't happen.

As for these ranks being "too expensive" they're designed to be something for the dedicated / addicted to strive for, not a guaranteed free power spike so that you become overpowered.  I might consider dropping shields to 28 and steels to 12, but wont go any lower at this stage.

I wouldn't drop steelskin to 12, in fact I'd increase it's rank points cost a bit. It's just way too powerful.

Also can we have an extra_attack chance rank available? Or +weaponskill ranks?
