With four spheres and tripple etr in each simply award one faith point per etr and one extra twist slot every six times you etr.The new slots follow the standard cost pattern so they are 4 and 5 faith points respectively to unlock at tier one.Nice, easy and simple yet desireable without bring crazy overpowered.

True Druidic Heart Of Wood
Leave the current mechanic as it is so that people can do a regular TR once they reach level 20 and beyond, this would of course require no work to implement since the mechanic already exists.
Epic Druidic Heart Of Wood
Must be used at level 28 in order to TR back to level 20 (epic past life only) or back to level 1 (to get both epic and heroic past life), this can be gotten from the store for TP or buying turning in 25-30 Tokens Of The Twelve (25 tokens for level 20 and 30 tokens to go back to level 1).
Now this would require 1 new item to be created which is obviously some work and the extra options would need to be added to Kruz as well as the actual mechanics, but I think this would be a fairly simple (no I am not a programmer nor have I ever been one) way to implement the changes with as little work as possible. This system would also be easy to understand, you want to do a regular TR then use the normal system, if you are in epics and want to do a normal TR the same thing applies. ONLY the Epic TR would need the new heart type and has "Epic" in the hearts name to make it easy to understand and clarify what is needed.
This is just a quick idea I had so not really much thought gone in to it.
I have to applaud the dev team for this design. I really like the proposed changes much better than the old proposal.
I like the passive past life feats rather than having to use a feat slot. I also like the option to choose an additional past life feat with a feat slot. I hope this approach continues with epic TR. The auto-granted feats are a big draw because regardless of how small the benefit is- it stacks and doesn't take up a feat or gear slot.

Several characters on Sarlona all starting with "Rand" in the Guild "Guardians of House Cannith". My main four characters are Randowl (20 Warlock EA DPS Build), Randslar (Bard 14 / Fighter 4 / Rogue 2 Swashbuckler), Randek (Druid CC Caster 17/Fvs 3) and Randomall (Rogue 20 assassin).

My first thought on how to grind for ETR hearts would be 20 greater tokens of the twelve. Seems like the most logical choice; quest tokens for heroic tr, raid tokens for epic tr.
Then I remembered that most epic content doesn't have tokens anymore, and then I thought about what you get from epic raids, and my heart sank. If that's what it costs to epic tr I may never do it even once.
So, seeing as how the team has already called it ER (not ETR), I'm guessing it will need an Epic Druidic Heart. Now, what'd be nice is if Hearts got put into the Daily Dice rolls, and if they'd also have a crafting recipe added to them from Cannith and E* challenges (like with tokens for True Hearts)
TR starts you back at a lower level. You give up xp to start over.
LR brings you back to your current level. No xp or levels are lost.
Epic reincarnation starts you back at a lower level, and you give up epic xp to start over on epic levels.
Therefore it is perfectly consistent to refer to it as ETR.

I'm not sure I've read this correctly, any of this. But I think there needs to be some clarification in the terminology.
If a character is not reincarnating back to Heroic level 1, it is not a True Reincarnation.
If the Iconoics are not going to be able to reincarnate to a level 1 Heroic, it should be called Iconic Reincarnation, or something, anything, other than TR.
Same goes for Epic, but it does seem that the Devs are referring to it as Epic Reincarnation themselves, so I hope everyone else can start doing that.
Back to the Iconics, if I can't end up doing a proper TR, from level 1 with my Iconics, I'm going to be more than a little angry. With myself for being stupid enough to pay for something clearly not finished, and Turbine for changing the game in this way and being unable to even hint at what the plan was going to be.
the original proposal for Iconics was:::
Iconics will have their own form of True Reincarnation, earning their own unique set of past-life feats. You will also be able to TR from any character into an Iconic, which begins at level 15
I would guess based on this if you TRed an Iconic into a non Iconic class you would start at lvl 1 and if you TR and Iconic into an Iconic again you start at lvl 1+enough xp to take you to lvl 15 the way Iconics currently work
***this is mostly guess work based on the way Iconics work now and the original info released on Iconics
As for Iconics they do present a problem in them starting at level 15, TR in and out of them could cause some headaches (maybe) for coding it together to get it working with the current system. I strongly feel that keeping the whole TR system (be it Epic, Heroic or Iconic) as simple as possible will result in fewer bugs and be much easier to implement and easier for players to understand and use. For this reason I would suggest the following in addition to my previous idea:
Basically the same as above (see link in this post), having Iconics start at level 1 for a full Epic and Heroic TR would mean far less coding work since the code already exist and it would (in theory) simply need the Iconics adding to the list of classes which can be TR'd in to and out of (also making sure that they can be LR'd too).
However, people are used to Iconics being able to start at level 15 so forcing them back to level 1/level 20 could well be an rather unwelcome idea to say the least but of course these are just ideas nothing more so please be gentle with me lol!
EDIT - I will give some thought on Epic Past Life Feats in the morning it's well past my bed time now (4:18AM )
Now if had Tokens of the Harpers for Epic Reincarnation in Forgotten Realms raids that would work for me. The Harpers don't like power accumulation, are big fans of you knowing your own past, and seek a balance between many forces, so kicking you back to the start of your Epic levels to experience a things from a different viewpoint might just work for them.
