    Exclamation This is HUGE: Gender change option for iTR enabled on live! WAI?

    Well, I have my 25 lives FEMALE character, (Thelanis)Heall, flagged for an Iconic True Reincarnation, and right now I have *shock!* the option to change gender enabled.

    I'm pretty sure it will lead to a major bug, making my ONLY character in the game (all others are mules or test builds) losing a lot of the perks and gears I have gathered and enabled through this almost 4 years of playing this character and that would lead to a /quit for sure.

    But it makes me wonder: Should I beta test this?
    Any of you guys see this option too?
    Anyone succeeded on this and is fight-clubbing this info?

    I'm stuck on this decision, and don't want to move ahead and TR her to female, if gender swapping is an option now.
    And I don't really want to beta test this, while I have the gut feeling it will scr*w the system up.

    Current Info:
    - Server: Thelanis
    - Character name: Heall
    - Gender: Female
    - Race: Morninglord
    - Class: 20 Wizard
    - Epic Level: 8 (maxed Magister)
    - 2nd DDO store character bank slot unlocked
    - 25 past lives (5 of which are cleric and 5 wizard. Don't ask. I play for fun!) PS: I'm about to TR into cleric for the 6th time!!!! =D
    - Used Iconic True Heart of Wood from DDO store normally (of course!)
    - Entered character creation once before, but didn't check gender option (after 25 lives you just ignore it) and quit creation , logging on the capped character once again to double check a few things.
    - Attempted TR race/class: Iconic Morninglord Cleric


    SS or it didn't happen:

    1 - Female character ready to TR



    2 - Character creation with gender button not grayed out and fully functional



    3 - Male character one click away from an EPIC BUG!

    I first heard of it here.

    Not sure where official word of sex change option is listed, though.

    This is... whoa...

    And I check the forums now and then. Never read about this option being enabled.
    Maybe they want us to beta test this indeed.

    Thanks for the heads up and wish me luck if it's not WAI!

    been around for a while now.. Rowan talked about it quite a bit... and I for one was thrilled to fix a mistake I made 4 years ago with Ungood, due to being WF I accidentally took female.

    When I TRed into a Drow, it was rather a bemusing moment to realize that I could not fix this gender issue, for 2 years Ungood was a Female Drow.. now, Today, Ungood is a Male Shader Kai (which I bought just for this feature)



    There is no risk involved, it's been beta tested by many players, myself included. Enjoy and Spend Much on TP to show thanks

    i just want to point out real quick that this option is available for any TR, not just iconic.

    it is not, however, available for epic reincarnation or lesser reincarnation

    Yah, I remember Ungood, I made it to around 12th, and I was in running with my guildies, and I was like "Why do I sound like a Girl when I am getting hit" and pretty much everyone else in the group (Of which I was the group leader) was like "Bro, I got some bad news for you" and that is when they all got a laugh about "Ungood invites you to Her party"

    I opted to just make it to 20th and TR, and that was when I discovered that you could NOT change your gender when you TRed, and it's Irked me ever since.

    Rowan made the moves to have this fixed with the "Rise of the Reincarnate" expansion, which has been a blessing to people like me.

    Confirmed. I swapped gender on a Halfling TR last week.

    Probably true of most, and maybe that is what tipped the scales. Allow the sex change option during TR, and maybe sell more name change certificates. Kinda like the free salty food in taverns.
