    After Update 29, will we be at the same CP level we are now or will we be moved to the CP level that matches the XP we have earned to date?
    I ask because I keep hearing how the XP requirements to progress through the CP ranks is being changed, requiring less XP at the lower levels. This is to help with the "grind" of leveling CP by allowing us to see new levels sooner than before.
    SO if a player is 715 now, then you have actually earned enough XP to be at a higher CP level after U29.

    Since there are probably going to be changes form whats on PTS to what goes Live.
    The 2 weeks will give more than enough time for the "best" to select for all builds will be public (probably week or less).

    The one change that I feel should be implemented is that new players should earn CP from the start but cannot slot anything until the have 1 character at level 50. This would lessen the whole "I got to get to what level?" issue that some have concerns with.

    While the changes coming with Update 29 impact only the Champion System, we know that you’ll likely want to test many builds, so for two weeks you can reset, respec, and rebuild any and all of your characters as many times as you want for free when using a Rededication Shrine or the Champion Point redistribution function—easy!

    Great news. Two weeks of unconstrained experimentation and GO

    I like the free pet and respecs, but I do agree that a few race and name change tokens would be nice too. :)

    Well this is a slap in the face, I hope this can be discussed and changed.

    Oh, about a slap in the face... Almost year ago, we hoped that changes to vMA and vDSA weapons in Greymoor will not happen, but they happened... ;) And after time, unhappy people stopped posting about it on forums, and everyone have forgotten about it :/ Never forget about changes like this, because you'll be disappointed by other changes later.

    At least we all got few free race change tokens some time ago (I honestly can't remember when it was, maybe with Greymoor as well). For me, it's not concern at all... With constant changes, I wouldn't keep changing races of my characters each time something in their racial bonuses changes. I even haven't used those free tokens + some tokens I bought with my own crowns very long time ago.

    Free respec event was on PTS at the start of current testing cycle, so it's not surprise that we're getting it on live. Even if this event wasn't on PTS, temporarily free respecs are expected when there are so much changes :)
    Name/race/appearance changes shouldn't have been locked to the cash shop in the first place.

    Technically, you can buy them as "gifts" for gold, no problem - they are not crowns-exclusive items, like skyshard option for alts.

    There are no plans to add race change tokens to Heroes Reforged at this time.

    While I appreciate being upfront about it, was there even a consideration for race change tokens due the the racial passives change?

    Since there is precedent for giving out some race changes in the past with large updates, why not follow that precedence? As much as we would all like to change any character we have, I don't think anybody expects to have outright free race changes for the entire event period, but having 3 or 4 tokens would be a nice gesture for the players that the developers are listening to our concerns with the new changes.

    Agree. ZOS created the precedent by previously doing it, abandoning that precedent sends the very strong message that the company now considers it perfectly acceptable to force changes that will lead to increased revenue - not for balance, but for revenue......

    Is this "no race change tokens for the event" (ie free like the other changes), or "no race change tokens at all associated with the patch"? Because the post could be seen either way and I definitely see the first not being an option. However, no race change tokens at all when, like stated, they make the absolute biggest changes to races in history is pretty rude.

    I do think the period of free respecs is great and the length is quite generous.

    The pet is meh, but OK. However, it looks a lot like one that was just available in the crown store. I guess too bad to those who already bought it?

    In all fairness, I think the changes made with Wrathstone were greater, but still, one or two would have been helpful and more importantly a good gesture to the player base.

    I do like the pet and am glad it’s not on fire, lol! :joy:
