We've been seeing a lot of confusion over Enlightenment and how the system works, so we wanted to explain it a bit more thoroughly for you. In simplest terms, Enlightenment is a bonus for the XP you earn while playing that counts toward your Champion Point progression.
Every 24 hours, you receive enough Enlightenment to earn one Champion Point at the rate of 100,000XP per Point; after your Enlightenment is used up, you will return to requiring 400,000XP to earn a Champion Point. The 24 hour timer starts when you log in with your first Veteran character or unlock the Champion System, whichever is first, and resets every 24 hours after it first starts. You will receive a message on your screen that you are Enlightened, and you can also hover over your XP bar to see if you are Enlightened.
If you end up not using up all your Enlightenment while you play, it will continue to accrue for a maximum of 12 days. Once you hit the limit, you will not gain any additional Enlightenment until you begin to use it by gaining XP.
In addition, there were a number of issues with Enlightenment when it was first introduced, and have since been fixed as of patch 2.0.1. Below is what we addressed:
- Fixed an issue where logging in with an existing unconverted character for the first time could restart the enlightenment process, once the process had begun.
- Fixed an issue where it would appear as though a new character was accruing enlightenment.
- Fixed an issue where it would appear as though you had gained a Champion Point, but were not able to use it.
- Note: This was due to a desyncing issue, and you did not lose out on any earned Enlightenment or Champion Points.
- Fixed an issue where it would appear as though you were Enlightened and progressing through the Champion System faster than you actually were.
We hope this helps, and let us know if you have any further questions!
