Will there be any benefits for VIP members when it comes to the reincarnations?

I know the items like heart of wood will be available in the store, but it would be nice if VIP status granted us some advantage besides the 500 monthly points.

A respec token or two would go along way for some of us who have been paying sub fees for 3 years.

Let's face it, the new respec items will be making a ton of cash through the store. Due to this fact, I don't think we will ever see VIP's get free respecs as that would put a dent in Turbine's Cash Cow. But with many of the long time vets having 10+ toons; many of which will be going for true and grtr reincarnations, it would be a great gesture for Turbine to provide some advantage for VIP's.

Well for true rez...

Non-VIPs have to spend a ton of points to purchase leveling sigils to lvl up again. So the vip benefit is quite clear.

Not exactly true. Leveling sigils drop as quest rewards. The copper ones are super common, silver not so bad, gold rarer, and plat are silly rare. All that said though, with more xp required per level that means more quests being run per level so more chances to pull the sigil before you even hit the imposed cap for it (let alone the extra 2 levels-1xp).

Assuming you don't just pull the sigil as a reward for completing quests.

I've gone from subscription to F2P, started a FvS and so far pulled sigils for both 5-8 and 9-12.

I was thinking along the lines of : One free Lesser Reincarnation per VIP for each toon.

At the very least, this would be equivilent to providing those toons who may have been nerfed since launch to go back and redo skill points and feat selection.

The leveling sigils are a roadblock they implemented for FTP toons. I don't view the absence of leveling sigils as a benefit to VIP's.

What might be nice would be one lesser per account, bound to account, for people with active subs on the day EU was announced, or launched, or <insert date that makes sense to Turbine here>

This is a good idea, but i doubt it will happen. I say this becasue there really isn't much incentive for turbine to do this, all they would do is lose money. Mind you, it would make the players happy, but i don't think thats enough for them anymore.

Dunno about TR, but I did a Lesser Reincarnation on a F2P level 6 toon with all levelling sigils up to 20, and after the Reincarnation cap was still at 20.

I would nevertheless assume that a TR F2P toon will NOT need to purchase/find any levelling sigils *again* ;)

How about a free level-up from 16 to 20 for veterans? I have a build that I'd like to abandon without having to cap.

Anyone with capped 16s before mod 9 dropped should get something, like say 2 True res tokens per year of play or whatever, usable at level 16....
