New level 100 Heroic Characters are dropping next week in EverQuest! If you’ve been around for a while, you’ll remember that we added Heroic Characters in 2014 at level 85. Well, soon you will be able to purchase a Heroic Character that starts at level 100.

Let’s break down the benefits you can look forward to with a new Level 100 Heroic Character. Here’s what you’ll receive upon purchase:

  • 25,000 Platinum
  • Selyrah Mount
  • One Extra Mercenary Slot
  • Two 40-Slot Bags
  • Spells
  • Thousands of Auto-Granted Alternative Advancement Abilities (AA’s)
  • Full Set of Equipment, including weapons, armor, Power Source and Charm
  • Food, Drink, and Ammo
  • 200 Bayle Marks

As a reminder, here’s what you get with a Level 85 Heroic Character (original FAQ found here):

  • 15,000 Platinum
  • Jungle Raptor Mount
  • Two 24-Slot Bags
  • Spells
  • Thousands of Auto-Granted Alternative Advancement Abilities (AA’s)
  • Full Set of Equipment, including weapons, armor, Power Source and Charm
  • Food, Drink, and Ammo
  • 100 Bayle Marks

Bummer! I was hoping they would absorb/replace the unused 85's with 100's :argh:

I'm not really super excited about not at least getting a discount on one from all the years of being subbed and expansions purchased. I'll still get some, but it "would be a whole lot cooler if they did".

maybe you are.

maybe they would be $99 without all those years :p

I'm glad they didn't "put them on sale" for 40 and then bump it up to 45 or 50 after the sale.

maybe just a diff perspective

adjusted for inflation the difference on the $35 lvl 85 heroic and the $40 lvl 100 heroic is ~$1.26, so not that much more for 10 levels

Good point! $40 isn't a ton, but I wonder if they come with a free character slot. I'd love to try a new combination later this year! Cheers
