Free Heroic Character - Ends March 31
Our anniversary gift to EVERYONE who has ever played EverQuest is a FREE level 85 Heroic Character. All you have to do to claim this is log in before Friday, March 31, 2017 @ 11:59PM PDT.

Heroic Characters are a great way to get a head start when playing a new character, or get to caught up to friends when you come to join them on their server.

Never played EverQuest before? No problem! This promotion is also available to new accounts if they have an All Access Membership! Being a member has its perks, and you can learn more about membership benefits here.

Special Note: Heroic Characters can NOT be redeemed on progression servers. This feature unlocks on a progression server after that server unlocks Call of the Forsaken.

I wonder if you can make one if you already have on an account? They offered free heroic characters when the concept was first introduced so I'm sure many players already have one on their accounts. I made one on every active account I have and didn't really do much with them but they are still there. The rogue was useful for exploring but that's about it.

I can't see how they wouldn't allow that. The one limit that will come into play, and may make them some money is, people may hit the slot limit on their accounts. That's my situation on two accounts, so I'll be buying the slot cap raiser for those accounts.

I saw this and logged in for the first time in many, many months. Saw no Herioc Char avail, so went to the official forums and read that you must log fully in to a server with a char on the account where you want the heroic char. I did this many times before it worked, but after it worked once, it worked on every account afterwards.

I created a Rogue, logged in to Crescent Reach and started all the intro quests to get to the breath quest. The server crashed 3 times in less than 1/2 hour. Is this the way EQ is (NOT)working now? Too frustrating to play at all..... Smiley: oyvey

I know people have crashing problems, so my experience is not typical. But I've leveled classic Felicite (on FV) from 70 to 98 since the holidays and I've seen one server crash in that span of time. Your mileage obviously varied.

I have tried 3 different servers today, and apparently it is the CR zone giving problems. People are saying it is crashing regularly today.

FV seems to be very stable as I haven't seen a crash there in months. Now it could just be that the CR zone itself is crashing. I spend zero time in that zone so I can't say from experience.

My guess would be, lots of folks creating new chars, and so CR is getting bogged down.

I retreived a few old accounts and made a good pl crew with this offer. This has been a really nice anniversary gift, good on Daybreak!

I finally got around to creating all of my free heroic chars last night. Didn't have any issues.

I did have to buy slot expanders on two accounts (thanks to the 500 free DBC each month, it didn't cost me anything :)

Also, on two of the accounts, I had to create a level 1 char first, so that there would be something to log into, which then triggered the free heroic. Those two accounts only had EQ2 chars on them, but have been around for several years.

Tomorrow is the deadline, so if you haven't created your free heroic toons yet, do it soon!

PS - four of the six accounts already had free heroics from the offer two(?) years ago. That didn't prevent them getting another free heroic (per Sippin's question above)

made two more on my FREE accts.

I got all mine made. All I did was create a new character, and then hit the heroic button while still on the character selection screen for that new character. It logged me in and I was 85 in the new feerrott.

Remember that you can delete a heroic character and it becomes rerollable. You don't get the plat and Bayle marks again though, so if you are deleting a heroic to server move...

I deleted my freebie heroic from years ago and it put my "available count" up to 2. I made a new one and it appears to have used the newer freebie and given me the plat and bayle marks. I deleted that character (forgot to set starter city) and the next reroll didn't get the plat and bayle marks.

Not so handy if you leveled a heroic with some effort put in, mine was sitting there still at 85 years later.
