    Default Starting with 0 XP?

    Hello,

    it would be great if there were an option to start with 0 XP on an iconic hero. I would really enjoy the leveling process with the new "races". In total, there could be three options:

    1) Starting at lvl 15 with the predefined class
    2) Starting at lvl 1, with enough XP to level to 15
    3) Start at lvl 1 with 0 XP

    Because they use method #2 already, you can easily adapt it to 1 or 3 on your own.

    Thats not quite correct. If I apply 2), I still have 1M XP.

    I want to be able to earn that XP myself with an iconic.

    Just keep track of it yourself.

    Of course I could, but on the other hand it seems to be quite easy to implement a third choice. It's already there for players who own veteran status.

    This is a suggestion to give the players more choices. I don't think that i'm the only one who wants to be able to start an Iconic from the scratch.

    I'd also prefer to have the option of starting with 0 XP.
    Having 1.000.000 xp and not leveling just feels weird. There is no sense of accomplishement then.

    For some players going level by level gives a feel for how to use all those abilities gradually and provides a better experience.

    Level 1 option should bounce character to Korthos, since Forgotten Realms has no low level content. Just use the same "This is all a bad dream" line on the level one option.

    I could be wrong (didn't pay that much attention to this) but isn't option 3 the option where you don't talk to Elminster/LoB and just walk out of the creation forge?

    If I recall correctly Iconics were brought in mainly so new players could go directly to higher levels and get to forgotten realms content very quickly,

    No, unfortunately Iconics start with 1M XP right away.

    I would also enjoy the ability to start an Iconic at 0 XP. That would make it work with my Permadeath guild rules.

    I thought they were brought in to improve bank toons in lieu of added bank space...

    LOL!

    Unfortunately they don't come with the favor normal achieved by level 15 (only 3 inventory slots), making even their mule value minimal.
