Sony Online Entertainment has sent notice to all players interested in a one-time free level 85 character in EverQuest 2. The event, Hero's Call, will end on Tuesday, October 15th so today is your last chance to score the free character.
Outside of the "Hero's Call" promotion, the Heroic Characters Program has three options for players: Try Before You Buy, New Heroic Character, and Upgrade Existing Character.
Try Before You Buy: This option offers one full level of play from Level 85 to 86 -- which takes a typical player several hours -- with 100 Alternate Advancement (AA) points to test out a class of your choice at a high level. The Free Trial includes a flying mount, armor, consumables, and a few restrictions.
New Heroic Character: A full Heroic Character can be purchased at Character Select or while playing as a Free Trial character. It includes level 85, 280 AAs, all items included in the Free Trial, and is unrestricted.
- Upgrade Existing Character: The Upgrade option allows you to select any existing character at any level and upgrade it to a Heroic Character. All upgraded characters receive level 85 and are increased to 280 AAs, but not beyond. If you are above level 85 and have more than 280 AAs, you won't receive additional levels or points, but will get a bundle of items that includes the flying mount, armor, and consumables.
