Emissary Selection Clarified, Press Event Wrap Up & Panel Q&A

Emissary Selection Clarified, Press Event Wrap Up & Panel Q&A - Bless - MMORPG.com

The Bless Online Steam page has a trio of new articles that stem from last week's press event, each covering a different topic. The first provides a photographic look at the event and the testers. The second gives readers insight into the selection process for the Emissary Program. The last, and perhaps most interesting, is a Q&A covering a host of topics including premium membership, Founder's Packs, Collector's Edition details and what "premium customer service" is & how it functions.

A few key take away tidbits:

  • Premium Customer Service was designed to give Founder's Pack owners "exceptional support" but the feature has been removed due to player/fan feedback.
  • Founder's Packs will include the base game, skins, premium membership, Lumena and "other benefits". 
  • Premium Membership is NOT a subscription. It is designed to "increase efficiency or provide and effect that will, for a limited amount of time, reduce the costs of convenience-related fees". This includes mount skins, pet skins, NPC gear repair fee reduction (30%), Wyvern cost reduced 50%, limited time Premium Pickaxe, and several other perks.
  • Founder's Pack Collector's Edition has been reduced from $199.99 to 149.99.
  • No plans for PvE-only servers
  • Peace Declaration Items can be purchased for gold before max level to remove PvP flagging. The effect lasts 10 minutes. Lumena can also be used to purchase the Peace Pledge item once max level is reached. Editor's Note: We reached out for clarification on whether or not max level players could only purchase the item with Lumen: "It is correct that at max level players will need to use Lumen to purchase the Peace Pledge item. The reason is that we don't want max level players to skip out on PvP easily since the game's RVR is largely about it. BUT you can earn Lumena by playing the game. You don't have to spend money."
  • Dungeon Reset Items will exist, but will not be available for cash purchase
  • No player-to-player trading

Thanks for the tip, Leiloni!
