    Hey,

    I have not played in years. So, I logged on to my beloved toon and I'm red. And, what happens to me, I get hit by the blue steamroller. So, since I have no clue what I'm doing anymore and I do not want to delete my beloved toon, how do I work off my counts?

    How many counts are you above 5?

    "I must consider my sins"

    you just gotta afk the char online for a long time and they will slowly work off

    40 hours per long. Thats wayyy too many counts to burn. You'd be better off buyng soulstones, stoning all the skills and deleting/remaking the character.

    OK, I have eaten the max stat scroll. Will I need to replace that?

    I believe so... But spending all of your time for a damn long while burning counts? Either learn red or start over. I wish I had better answers. Others might... I am still a noob. *smiles* That was a joke.

    I wish you luck however you decide to go. Rebuilding would be quicker, in my humble opinion.

    This is some good advice. Thank you all who responded. I also must say that the quality of people here has improved. I was fully expecting to be flamed and made fun of for wanting to go blue and to be called names questioning my sexual preference. But, there was not !!

    Thank you, all.

    *smiles* You will see flames if you stay and participate here. For the most part, Siege is a good, if high spirited community.

    yup, you'll need to eat another stat scroll, as well as any powerscrolls you have already eaten. might be better to gather the powerscrolls before you remake the char, if all your skills are over 100. also, don't forget to clear out your bank before you delete the char.

    let me know what scrolls you need and i'll see if i can help you.

    ya, plan it out before you reboot your char.

    Use the soul stone thing on skills you dont want to retrain. stat scrolls and power scrolls are pretty easy to get now so I would be very in favor of the redo. And ya, make sure you clean out your bank and your backpack.

    That equates to 258days of count burning, or 6192 hours if you prefer :p

    man chars live as reds, you could join a guild and hang around with a few people to avoid the gank squads or as others said, pick your vet rewards as soul stones and remake the char. its all down to you really, i personally have a blue char but have had reds in the past, its not so bad really, you just have to think on your feet.

    Whats skills do you currently have? If you are dead set on getting blue, just turn some of your 120's down to 115 and get fairly cheap 115 scrolls. You will have to rebuild your stats if you delete but that should give you time to possibly aquire a 15 or 20 stat.

    Faction reprive was a one time thing almost 6 or 7 years ago when factions first came out.

    I re-made a char once - not on Siege. Very carefully emptied his pack, cleared his bank, deleted him, then remembered what he'd been wearing at the time. Doh!

    You Can actually page a GM and ask for the repreive to be applied to your character, if the counts you have are old enough a considerate GM will set you at 5 long, I went from 246 to 5 after 3 or 4 GM help requests after I reactivated an account that had not been active since 2003 or 4.

    The Five on Friday a week back maybe talked about a new reprive. So perhaps live red for a while, and see what comes of that.

    April 10 Five on Friday

    Will there ever be an easier way to turn a character from red to blue? The current time to turn my character from red to blue is over 800 hours...

    We’re considering a one-time reprieve at some point in the future.
