Tier 3 Heroic — Minimum Resolve 240Edit
- No Level increase and level 100 content
- There will be some new character progression. (
no epic weapon upgrade, or artifact upgrade, no new AA)
- No reuse of old dungeons, all new dungeons will have a "new" look
- The public quests are the prelude of the expansion
- New code for battlegrounds
- Kander said: 1 Overland zone. Its larger than Thalumbra. We are going to be making close to the usual amount of heroic and raid content, maybe a bit more, but this expansion we will be making more Solo and Advanced Solo dungeons as well. So expect 8 to 12 solo dungeons, all in the 4 or 5 themes we are using.
From the Live streamEdit
New game features:
- Ascension Classes
- another way to level/improve your characters
- original appearances
- Each Ascension class has a different elemental damage type. Casting the Ascension spell converts all your damage to that type.
- 4 Ascension classes: Etherealist, Elementalist, Thurmaturgist, Terramancer
- Combo abilities
- Epic 2.0 Weapons
- requires your Fabled Epic Weapon from the original Kunark (not Epic Repercussions)
- Totally new weapon for all 26 classes.
- Must be Ascension level 5 to start it.
- No feathers over people's heads, no blue POIs, sometimes invisible quests. We’ll have to work together on the quest details.
- Mercenary Gear
- Rather than replacing your merc, you can power up your existing mercs
- If you pre-order Kunark Ascending, you get the Mercenary feature.
- Player gear or Mercenary gear can be applied to your mercenary.
- You start with head, shoulder, and 2 other merc equipment slots. You have to train your Mercenary (time investment, you can spend Daybreak Cash to speed up the time) to unlock the other 4 equipment slots.
- Wardrobe tab
- Items with an appearance can be consumed (destroyed) and added to your Wardrobe tab. It no longer eats up bag and bank space.
- compatible with House-placed dummies.
- From the livestream, it looks like 18 slots per slot so 18 Head items, 18 Shoulders items, etc.
- More slots presumably purchased with Daybreak Cash.
- New Tradeskill Recipes, Signature Quest, and Gear
