I think this is a very good idea which will offer even more customization options and give players improve TR perks. I thought this a little time ago but never posted cause i, to be honest, thought it would not be welcomed over here but now, since developers said they are planning to update PL feats anyway, i decided to post it.
Some players may have noticed that some past life feats are quite useless if you completely change your class orientation, for example if you TR a wizard into a barbarian, wow +1 to DC spells, not so awesome isn't it?
Well this suggestion mainly tries to correct this issue adding some more spices in the recipe.
How should it work: when you TR you get asked if you want to use the past life feat (nothing changes in this case) or the new past life enhancement line!
If you choose the latter, before reincarnating, you' ll be asked to select one (only one yeah) of your present enhancement to take with you in your new life, usable from level 1, same restrictions, same pre-requisites (except AP spent of course...), exactly the same times you would be allowed to use it in the new life.
The past life enhancement would not ask you to spend AP to be acquired, you just need to TR in the class to pick up the one you need and you' ll be abe to use it from level 1 rank 0, as soon as your new life becomes playable to be crystal clear.
It would not be possible to choose a prestige enhancement as a past life reward, and i see monk stances being too much specific to get in as well, so they would be an exception. I mean no, you wouldn't be able to choose stances as past life enhancement.
Of course this enhancement is not treated as regular ones, so it won't count towards AP spent count or as pre-requisite for other, normal, enhancements. Also, you will get only the first level of the ability and you won't be able to upgrade it no matter what. Except one way.
If you TR two times in the same class and select the enhancement two times as past life reward you will have it unlocked on level 2. For balancing reasons, it will upgrade automatically at a spefic levels like the tomes inherent bonuses.
For example, i TRed two times as a barbarian, and choose sprint boost as first past life reward, then i play my second life as a barbarian again and TR again, then i choose sprint boost I, as a reward for my first reincarnation, and sprint boost II as a reward for my second time.
Then, in my third life as, let's say wizard, i will have sprint boost I usable from level 1 rank 0, and sprint boost II unlocked at level (let's say) 5, as an example.
The stackable limit for the PL enhancements would be 3, just as the old PL feats line.
Wouldn't it be cool?
And now the hot part! Developers talked about some "epic TR", what if we could use this new past life rewards system with Epic Destinies abilities? It would be like a free fourth twist of fate, and the power of our characters would be theoretically upgradable without limits.
The epic PL enhancement would allow to choose only the first tier of a specific ability by the way.
Let me know if i forgot to mention something explaining my idea, or comment to ask a question or just say you like/dislike this one.
