HELP REINCARNATION
« on: September 03, 2019, 09:52:10 AM »
Characters who have reached a high level of power can chose to reincarnate
and restart their life at level 1. To reincarnate, a character:

* Must be at the very end of level 30.
* Must have at least 15 ranks.

Reincarnated characters retain their name, gender, guild and alignment, but
can chose a new race, including exotic races. The new race must satisfy all
the normal restrictions of their guild and alignment. They also retain all
their money, equipment and pets.

Mages retain their robe color, and will not need to retake the Test of High
Sorcery. Scouts, Paladins and Dark Knights will retain their path. All
characters retain any progress towards quests.

Each character can reincarnate up to 6 times. With each reincarnation,
characters gain the following permanent bonuses:

* 2 bonus ranks. Bonus ranks do not increase the experience required to rank,
  and do not count towards the normal rank limit.
* +2 bonus to a stat of their choice.
* -1 bonus to SAVING_SPELL.
* 5-15 hit points, depending on their guild.
* 20 movement points.

Reincarnated character have all their purchased ranks removed, including
Arctic Legend and all legendary skills, spells and instincts. They retain
all their rank points, and can use them to repurchase any rank, as long as
they meet its requirements. Pets of reincarnated characters retain their ranks.

Reincarnated characters have their skill points reset to awful, and will need
to retrain them. Some memory of their previous expertise remains, so characters
will find that retraining skills up to their previous level will be much faster.

Spells, instincts and divine powers are a core part of a character's soul;
reincarnated characters will retain all their magical powers, but will need
to level up before they can use them.

Upon reincarnation, characters' stats will change. Players will be able
to lore and reroll as usual.

Each reincarnation imposes a penalty to all experience gained, so characters
will find it progressively harder to level.

Reincarnation is irreversible.

So with the loss of legendary instincts, will those be auto-learned when a scout legends again or do they have to go pop it once more?  Going by the helpfile I assume the former.

When you say reincarnated characters learn skills faster do you mean "each time you reincarnate you get +X learn" or is it something else, like needing less enlightens/skillfullsper learn session?

Legendary instincts should appear automatically when the scouts become eligible.
Reincarnated characters will have an easier time getting enlightens until their skill level reaches the maximum it has ever reached.

I've received a couple of player questions about 'age.'

Reincarnated characters will be reborn on their 17th birthday in the inn which they last rented.

One idea, at least for now. The requirement of being 1x as a LEGENDARY character should be removed. Since you lose your legendary status anyway, I feel like only players of non-legend status should require being 1x.  People are barely playing right now, I logged on and was going to try out reincarnation only to find that my legendary mage is 48 million exp to 1x. I'm sorry, but that's not something I'm going to do just to try that out.

Maybe legendary characters shouldnt lose so much XP on death.  Though to be fair, level 29 legends are almost as hilarious as decapping a group member from a mob dodge.
