When characters who have achieved a high level of total XP (currently a cumulative 70,000 including PL, minions, items, and raw XP) they are eligible to perform a New Game+. This is a form of transfer that allows brand new characters to begin at a higher level than they would otherwise. Please not that these transfers will only work transferring a retiring character to a new characters. Transfers will be in XP only. It will be up to you to convert to PL or purchase items after the completion of the transfer.
There are two different forms of NG+ currently available to players, which vary depending upon the circumstances of the initial character's archival. These are:
NG+ Classic: If your character dies in a DE, Saga, or other similar thread, you are entitled to a full NG+ worth 80% of your current PL, Items and XP. This is intended primarily to allow players who do not wish to play in the Afterlife to rejoin the main board with the bulk of their earnings upon death, albeit at a substantial loss.
NG+ Legacy: If your character dies in a Saga, DE, or other similar thread while your follower survives, either due to escape or non-participation, you are entitled to NG+ as that follower with 70% of your previous cumulative XP (including the follower). Similar to mechanization, this is subject to review: any sudden gains in power on the part of the follower must be explained in a satisfactory and logical manner or the application will be denied.
NG+ Lite: If you opt to perform a New Game+ while your character is still alive, you will only be entitled to 60% of your current PL, Items and XP. This is still a superior option to a base character transferal, but is intended to prevent abuse of the system and allow us to keep the Classic track open to those who need it.
NG+ Soul Recycling: If you have been an active participant in the Afterlife over an extended period, you may opt to transfer with 70% of your current PL, Items and XP. This is a superior option to NG+ Lite intended to mitigate the advantages the Afterlife offered without punishing players for remaining in wait of revivals that don't come through.
Additional NG+ Rules
- Your initial NG+ XP is not eligible for any racial XP/PL conversion bonuses or negatives, including Arcosian, Ghost, Minion and Afterlife conversions. Once you've used your transferred XP through either gaining PL or buying items, your modifier will return to normal.
- All NG+ transfers are subject to review. Though we don't anticipate there being any problem with them in the vast majority of cases, don't try to work around the system by having your character fly their space pod into the sun or purposefully die just to access the higher threshold. If your death was overtly intentional and decidedly 'gamey', your NG+ rewards may be reduced to 60%.
- If you perform an NG+ Lite from a living character, this will count towards your counter for the Character Swap Slip-Up rule. It is not functionally different from a transfer in this way. As normal, archiving and transferring from a dead character is not counted towards this rule.
