A simple request, I don't think this would be game breaking considering how far DDO has come with it's TR system and 'hamster wheel'-like designs. Coming from someone who loves making and deleting alts to try out builds, these are some features I came up with(and would personally spend the time earning or buying.

Veteran Status 3: Whenever you make a new character, you can start that character out at level 12, complete with a set of "level 12" items.

Iconics can start at 15, First life alts starting at 12 doesn't seem like a big deal.

Veteran Status Hard: Any first life character you own start with the capability to open on Hard, as opposed to being locked into normal. Your second life characters are able to open on elite.

This is probably the most controversial, because it steps on VIP's toes, but otherwise, this just speeds up the rate at which you unlock Elite/Reaper (which is what the game is balanced around at this point).

Veteran Status TR: Whenever you TR or rTR, you can opt to instantly gain enough experience to hit level 4.

Most experienced people can hit level 4 in an hour or two after TRing, this is just a QoL skip for those who want to avoid Korthos. There are still downsides (like missing favor and perhaps better than Veteran 1 gear).

probably say 10 for vet status 3



for the vet tr - make it an option - some people want to run the 2 and 3 quests on reaper at level

I would like to see Hard difficulty unlocked for Premium players.

Normal has become too easy with all the power creep we've had in the last few years.

And now that we have Reaper it is really horrible to play from Normal on all new characters.

It would make more difference between Free to play and Premium players and would encourage new players to spend some money on the game and become Premium.

It could also be put into DDO store as some kind of veteran status like this thread suggests so that even Free to play players can buy it with DDO points.

I suppose 10 makes sense to be in line with vet status 4 and 7 (going up by 3 each time).
And yeah, I'd rather the Vet Tr be an option that you can opt into instead of it being forced after you get it. I'm sure there are plenty who would opt out of this kind of feature.

I agree, normal has become far to easy for those with experience with DDO. It's become far too slow to play on an alt for 2 lives to unlock the content you want to play on that character.
I really like the idea of it being both a favor reward and a purchasable reward.

If memory serves (it's been a LONG time since I was ftp/premium so my memory may be faulty) Once you get to lvl 4 Vet 1 unlocks in the store, once you get to 7 vet 2...

I currently have both vet statuses.

Vet status 1 requires 1000 favor (or you can buy it).
Vet status 2 requires 3000 favor (or you can buy it).
The current cap to favor, for reference, is 5695.

If vet status 3 required favor, I would personally like to peg it lower than 5000.

Edit: Unless you are talking about unlocking the ability to purchase it. If so... I didn't even know that kind of limit existed.

Re: your edit. I am talking about unlocking the ability to purchase it...

But it seems my memory is faulty. Just made a brand new ftp account and both are available for purchase from level 1.
