i like to start all new mmo's with a mule so if i screw up(and dont we all screw up our first toons? ;) ) i dont ruin my main. the difference with this game is not knowing if the exp/weapon/gear rewards are for only one toon or all. and for the exp reward, is it automatic or do you decide when you start those bonus's?

good question, id like to know this as well, i make 2-3 chars to play with different people and preserve progression when they're on.

so yeah, can only one char claim?

at least, OP, you wont have same issue as me, to get your preorder bonuses you have to "claim" them from the cash shop, aka you wont get anything until you do, making a mule character wont hurt you so long as you dont claim.

i think its for your account so every char you make on the account will get the bonuses

wow, thanks for the quick replies. now just have to wait .0000002 seconds for an answer to the exp bonus i guess ;)

edit: if it starts when you make a new toon, or you get to trigger it.

Mildly off topic, but which weapons will you all be claiming from preorder? I myself am getting the Sporeshot....can't wait to try it out.

i dont know, havent had a chance yet to find out what all are available and what they do. if i can i'll use an assault rifle with launcher, or sniper and grenade launcher. going vet as backstory because i are one :) also why i want to use launcher, im good with them IRL :)

exp bonus is automatically granted at the time of purchase, you hit "purchase" on it and it starts ticking down immediately, im not sure if it affects all characters or just one, i can tell you post launch ill test it but yeah i never went to another toon during beta :P,

and im getting a sniper rifle, cause they're boss.

They'll probably all be obsolete in a day.. as all preorder bonuses end up being..

They are at that, Kitty, but from what I've seen they are a frequent drop in the game (for me at least)

But kittens are small! and once you take out the bones, there's not much meat! How can you not finish one? XD

Just curious, but has this been confirmed by the devs? While I know it is generally the case, I have run into the occasional game where the items were only good for one character. Given that I have a habit of making a character, running it game only to decide I do not like the particular look I chose, and then remake the character, I am hoping it is account wide.

Yes, I don't remember where, it might have been in one of the livestreams, but it is Dev confirmed that the Arkfall codes and all Preorder bonuses are account wide....with the exception of the preorder goodies being platform bound (xbox goodies won't cross over to ps or oc and vice versa)

Excellent, and thanks!

Does that include the lockboxes? I can see a lot of people trying to "cheat" the system using lockboxes and trades to get cash.

Catkicker

yeah, easy exploit there, make your main and a second toon, give lockbox from 2nd to main, delete 2nd, make a 3rd rinse and repeat.

i still wonder if the bonus exp will run from day one for all your toons, or if you get it each time you make a new toon, or if you can trigger it somehow. i could see holding on to it for a major event weekend where you could really get a lot out of it.

Make the character you will want look wise then play it as a mule. There is a respect option so even if you have ego of 800 just pay th scrip and change your perks. Dont try to expand the perks too soon, you get a perk slot at ego rating 1 at 20, 2 at 50, 3 at 100, 4 at 250, 5 at 500, 6 at 1000 and so on.

ah, didnt know there was a respec. yeah, that helps, no need to waste time on a mule then.
