    Default Epic TR suggestion - yes, another one

    Not sure if this has been suggested already, but here you go

    Basically, select whether you want to TR to level 1 or level 20, then you get a list of the destinies you have any xp at all in & each has a drop down box with 3 options:

    1 - Epic past life - This is the one you get the past life for. All XP in this destiny will be lost. You trade in the xp from a full life for a standard TR to get the past life feat, i don't think it's unreasonable to trade in the XP from the epic past life you want to get it's corresponding feat.

    2 - Keep - Essentially locks the tree out of the TR process, XP progression in this tree would be retained as-is. No limit on the number of destinies you can choose to keep, so if wanted you can simply get your epic past life feat & lose no other destiny progress at all.

    3 - Trade in for XP - Lose the tree progress, but gain an XP token (like the daily dice ones but BtoC) based on the number of completed levels within that destiny (probably about 75% of the XP required to hit that level, to prevent people levelling one they like then transferring it all to another less desirable one, you have to do some of the work!). The XP token can then be used at any time, so you could use it at heroic levels to skip some of them, or at higher levels to help with the final push to 20, or once in epic levels to boost progress towards another destiny.
    I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.

    I like that you've echoed my sentiment that there is no reason to absolutely force epic tr to include heroic tr but rather give people the option of epic tr only (lvl 20) or epic + heroic tr (lvl 1). I think the devs have got the message loud and clear that we don't want to lose all our epic destiny xp, but not that there is a significant group of people that would be put off by having to go back to level 1 in order to epic tr.

    As for being able to keep or trade in epic destiny tr as you desire, yep choice is good.

    These actually make some sense and keeps with the "current TR style". Lets be honest you trade XP for a Past Life Feat. A Heroic Past Life Feat takes you back to the lowest Heroic Level, 1. Thus an Epic Past Life Feat takes you back to the lowest Epic Level, 20. I am fine with trading 4.4 Million XP for a Heroic Past Life. I know level 25 is 3 Million, I have not looked into level 28, but shall assume 7 Million to hit cap, for an Epic Past Life sounds pretty decent (better XP in Epic currently). But trading 11.4 Million (roughly) for an Epic Past Life sounds pretty insane, unless they are roughly the same as 3~4 Heroic Past Life Feats.
