I've been reading the developer notes, the ddo wiki entry on epic destinies, and some of the posts by others, but I'm still a bit confused.
Essentially I'm worried about jumping into epic destinies with my main and permanently messing up his epic destinies, or messing them up to the point I need to buy items from turbine to fix it.
I've read that the epic destiny you pick your first life is the one you are stuck using until you unlock a new one and branch out to it. This remains through reincarnation, so if my WF Wizard chooses the Magister Epic destiny, then Tr's into a monk and I want to be a master of flowers I have to level up in magister to unlock Draconic Incarnation. Level draconic to unlock Fate Singer to unlock Shadow Dancer to unlock Grand Master of Flowers.
Suppose I then realize Shiradi is the shiznips and I want that. I then have to swap to Legendary Dreadnought and level it to unlock Shiradi. Is this how it works?
If I decide to use the Shiradi epic destiny, and build so maximize spell power, neglecting the ranged attacks in favor of the spells, and then TR into an Arcane archer can i reset my progress in Shiradi to fix this (like resetting my enhancements)? Will it cost TP to do this?
The reviews said you can unlock all epic destinies without the use of a tome of fate. Is this true for any epic destiny I start as?
I'm given a fate point for every 3 levels of an epic destiny I level. I can spend my fate points to unlock up to 3 twists of fate. Are twists of fate used to give a single ability of another class (like a h-elf dilettante)?
I can use my fate points to branch out into another epic destiny. Is this like multiclassing epic destinies? is this the only way to unlock other epic destinies? would my epic levels be split then between the two?
Or is this just pausing the first Epic Destiny in order to level the second?
-Imagine there is no multiclassing at all
-You can start as any Class when you create your character.
-You can only play as that first class you chose until you reach level 10, or 15
-A Pure Wizard at level 10 unlocks Sorcerer (continues playing as a Wizard)
-A Pure Wizard at level 15 Unlocks both Sorcerer and Bard.
-At level 17 the Wizard turns into a level 1 Bard
-At level 15 the Bard (previously a wizard) unlocks a new Class (Rogue)
-At bard level 15 he returns to being a level 17 Wizard
-The Wizard reaches level 20 and decides to play as a Rogue
-The Wizard can now Play as a level 1 Rogue, a level 1 Sorcerer, a level 20 Wizard, or a level 15 Bard
is that a decent analogy?
would twists of fate be like a level splash of another class?
Any and all answers would be greatly appreciated. If you could quote the part you're answering that would be even better (I have a lot of questions).
Thank you very much,
