In response to a number of questions by players about Heroic Characters on the EQ2 Forums, Caith and RadarX had some answers…
Q (by Errrorr): When will Channellers become available as heroic characters?
We don’t have a date on when Channelers will become available as a Heroic option.
Q (by Errrorr): Is it possible to have certain long and tedious questlines already completed (For example Speak as a dragon)?
Heroic characters are not going to have any quests completed for them. If a quest is so tedious as to be off putting, and is also something that cannot be avoided, I would rather look at the quest itself. I’m not sure To Speak as a Dragon would qualify in my estimation, but it’s something that we can look at.
Q: Does the Heroic Character purchase apply to the character slot, or to the character?
If you unlock a heroic character, and then delete it, it goes away. Whether that character is purchased, or unlocked as your one free, the result is the same. To unlock another heroic character to replace the one you just deleted would require you to purchase it at that point.
The reason we have a try before you buy option is to give people a chance to experiment with classes before unlocking them. Please use some care with which character you want to unlock as your free choice.
If you delete the free unlock, then no, you do not get another one to replace it.
