    And drop the price of everything on the website by about half! 20 dollars to transfer a character is a bit too much :X

    Hi,

    I have an Advanced Character token from several years ago that I never used. If I use it now, will the new templates show up or will it only have the templates from when I aquired the token?

    Thanks, Katrena

    Check your token again. The templates have a second page (-> at the bottom)
    If it doesn't show up you may want to page a GM.

    Sorta like how scripting is illegal to make your own character but buying it from the EA website is alright!

    The last time I looked at an advanced character token I couldn't find archery listed. Is it available now?

    I just looked at the Advanced Character token I have had for years and it does have archery in it along with all of the new templates. FYI, The only way to look at the token is with a character under 200 skill points. If you double click the token to look at it, the only way to get it back to a token is to right click on the little gump that has a button on the left.

    Nothing better than the satisfaction of doing it all yourself.

    I fail to see the harm in allowing a truly advanced template option. I think the prefab templates are great for a new player, but as an existing player I would be more apt to utilize them as a time saving feature if I got to pick the skills and stats. I would envision it very similar to the advanced new character option, with a higher amount of points to spend and a cap of 85 on skills and 90 on stats.

    It is an excellent time saver for existing players who have played this game for years and don't want to have to train those skills up for the 12th time. Sure, it can be fun doing it from scratch, but real life gets in the way when you work and go to school, and all those other things that real life can throw at you when you just want to have fun playing the game.

    I think that advanced character tokens are like saying "look, i'm going to pay you but for god's sake don't make me play your game". One could dare to think that skill training has a little design issue.

    Yeah same as you can buy virtual item off EA for real cash. But you can not sell virtual items for real cash.

    The problem with anything that someone does not like is that they have to criticize those who do. People have given good reasons why they think it was a good addition to the game, and people have given good reasons why they would rather not use them. Both were done clean without criticizing the opposite.

    For years, I refused to even give Advanced Character a notion since I did enjoy training up skills. I had a lot of time on my hands then, and it was worth it.

    95% of my characters on my 4 accounts are fully trained to GM from scratch. I added 4 new characters using the 7th character slots a few years ago to take advantage of their bank storage and to use them as scouts. Now, I want them to be a little more useful, but don't have the time I did to train them up. Using the Advanced Character token is just a small head start. It is common sense to anyone who has played the game long enough to know that your slowest gains comes in th 80's.

    I just finished training one of my charcters to 100 Hiding. It took me 2 months. While it was fun doing it for 3 of my other characters, it was not fun training her. The 10 second skill timer, and then not getting gains even though she was able to hide, was just not fun. She was even stuck at 76.2 for about a week. It was boring, and it took all the available gametime that I had, so I was doing nothing but pressing my Hide macro for two hours of gametime. I am not going through that again.

    A friend of mine is critical about Advanced Character. All of his characters are fully trained. I had to remind him that all of his characters were trained during the powerhour days, when it was much easier to get gains. He laughed and said, "oh, yea, I forgot about that". His new bard is an Advanced Character after he gave up on it after a few hours of no gains. :)

    The cool thing is that you quote me but clearly refer to someone else because (as I wrote) I don't see a problem with the token, but with the training system.

    No, the cool thing is that he read your post correctly, and took it at face value. You clearly likened Advanced Character to not having to play the game when you said:
    If that is not what you meant, then please let us know. Also, be more clear in your post because it really does not, otherwise, read well.

    I think advanced character tokens are great. I hate training and to start the game new and try to play with people 5 times GM you don't last long and its no fun at all. If you like to train and be able to say I trained from zero thats fine. Call me a noob if you like, But I'd rather use an advanced character token, a few sots and enchanced jewels and be able to play in a day instead of a month. They could accually make the tokens better if they let you choose your own skills and str/dex/int like they do when you create a new character.
