We wanted to take a moment to share (mostly) full details on the upcoming Membership revamp we have in store for you all.
As our producer, nophex, mentioned in the ongoing Update 4.10 Feedback thread, we’ll have a bunch of new bonuses and rewards for Members once the new system is implemented.
Membership will now grant the following:
A passive 30% bonus to PvE and PvP XP, including AA for as long as you’re a member. This replaces the Blessing of Asura. The Blessing of Asura will be removed from all characters.
15 Teleport Coins, per character, each month for free.
Boosted Token gains from Raids, PvP and Khitai areas.
A passive 30% increase to all faction gains.
The ability to unlock Alternate Advancement perks via time, starting at Level 20.
An additional AA point per level gained.
+7 Character slots. New, Free accounts made after the transition start with 1 character slot by default. All existing accounts will keep however many slots they had.
Increased Quest Journal capacity.
Unlimited gold capacity.
Important: Offline Levels are being completely removed from the game once the new membership system goes live. We’re aiming at June 30th; this date is subject to change, but you should use your offline levels by then, as they will disappear after the changes go live!
Monthly bonus points are not a part of Membership.
Veteran Tokens are no longer gained with Membership, but players will keep what they had and may still use them at Veteran vendors. Instead of Veteran Tokens, Members will be enrolled in The Loyalty Rewards program. This offers awesome new rewards for our Members at 30, 60, 90, 180, and 360-day tiers, including a brand-new mount type as the top-end reward. Additional rewards will be unveiled every 6 months.
We are also implementing a daily login reward and challenge system which will grant various rewards for free, including consumables, tokens, AA XP, and more.
An active membership will not be required to enter *any* content you have already purchased. This means any Rise of the Godslayer or Dragon’s Spine playfield, including associated raids and Unchained dungeons. Dragon’s Spine will be sold separately in a new content pack. If you are an active Member at the time the new system launches, we’ll give you the Dragon’s Spine pack for free!
Membership and Rise of the Godslayer are no longer required to use the Alternate Advancement system.
And, last but certainly not least, we’re going to have a new, lower price point for the 30-day membership. More info to come.
That about wraps up what’s going on; if I missed anything, I’ll be sure to add on to this. Yeah, I'm breaking our own forums' rules. I plan on merging the F2P forums with the main forums after the new system launches, but in the meantime I've put a copy of this thread here so you all can weigh on the matter. Cheers!
