    Default Suggestion: Reset destiny XP with epic reincarnations

    I'd enjoy the feature a lot more with a progression system. Leveling up epic destinies is fun, with new abilities at every action point. Hitting level 20 and already having everything other than some gear with level requirements? Meh.

    Would be nice if we could start over a single destiny of our choice at level 0 and enjoy leveling it back up to 5 while collecting karma.

    I'm going to go with "Hell No".

    I would not be against Turbine adding an item to the DDO Store that wipes a Destiny for those few like you who for some bizarre reason want it though.

    Wiping Destiny XP for everyone however is an entirely different story and I refer you to my first sentence.

    Also going with a hell no.

    Dear crazy fruit please reference this post Epic-Level-amp-Iconic-TR that was made by Glin in the summer and the following pages of reaction. That should give you an idea of everyone's thoughts about wiping EDXP

    Wow! Not all people are masochistic enough to grind yet again 11 Epic Destinies that so so...... quite sure most people don't enjoy the pain and how boring that is.

    So HELL NO!

    For the knee-jerkers and the hard-of-reading, I'm going to highlight a key phrase in the OP's post:

    Since I seem to be of a similar mind to the OP - that building a character, and watching them gradually become more powerful, is more interesting than running the same high-end content over and over with the same, mostly unchanging, toon - I had a similar thought to this, a while back:

    Instead of adding an additional system to track progress (karma), why not just allow players to spend all XP of a capped destiny to gain a relevant destiny PL? Those who have capped all destinies can either spend that already-earned XP to get relevant PLs, or just sit on the PL XP, which is usually doing nothing for them anyway.
    Unlocked twists not being affected by destiny XP getting reset, of course. :P

    But I guess it's all too late for such ideas now.

    After the meltdown when this was proposed by the devs, I don't see it happening.
    It's definitely an N-word.

    First what comes to my mind is getting devine sphere PLs for a melee... wouldn't say that they are getting more powerfull by leveling up one of the two connected epic destinies.

    BUT, I like the idea, because grinding out 2M exp in an off destiny and then leveling to cap with your prefered destiny is much more appealing than having to level from 20-28 in an off destiny.

    And to all the others who didn't read the OP exactly... it's not about loosing all ED XP, only the one destiny where you are going to get your PL. So it's far from the desaster Glin posted this summer and if you think about it it's even better than the current situation on Lammania, if you don't like playing in an off destiny.

    Nothing wrong with giving people the option to do this if they choose, but it has to be an option and not across the board. And it has to be crystal clear during the tr process what exactly is being reset.

    It's like the resetting of favor. It would be sweet if you could choose to reset favor (to regain TP) or not reset it (eg. for a max favour toon) and not have the reset forced on you.

    Choices are good.

    The community has not exactly embraced playing off destiny but did so only because the twists are far too good. To ask them to redo all that many times would have lead to the departure of almost everyone.

    I think resetting a singe destiny would have been a reasonable approach to Epic TR. But it doesn't make any sense to combine it with the current proposal, which has completely and deliberately divorced all aspects of Epic TR from specific destinies, with only ties to spheres.

    You used really poor phrasing in your title when you said "reset destiny XP", which was Turbine's horrible initial idea, and was justly shouted down and changed.

    I rate this troll a 0 out of 10.

    Way too obvious.

    Anyone who fell for it should hang their heads in shame.
