Heroic Characters are characters that begin at level 85. They were added to EverQuest on March 12, 2014.

Heroic Characters allow players to select any class and begin their adventures in EverQuest at level 85 with a full complement of gear, Alternative Advancement Abilities, food, drink, and platinum. This feature is a great way for new players to get caught up with their friends. It’s also great for existing players that want to try new classes, or for players returning to Norrath so they can explore content that they haven’t had an opportunity to visit yet.


Heroic Characters cost 3,500 SC (Station Cash) each (with All Access, this cost is reduced by 10%, total then 3150 SC)

Promotional free giveaway[edit]

For players that created an EverQuest Heroic Character between Wednesday, March 12 and Wednesday, March 26, 2014 (due to an issue it was extended by one day) Thursday, March 27th, 2014 at 11:59PM PDT., the first Heroic Character each player creates was free.

  • For accounts created before Nov 8, 2013, the free Heroic Character option is available one time per account.
  • For accounts created on or after Nov 8, 2013, the free Heroic Character option was available one time per household (IP address check).


Players will have the option to create a Heroic Character when they log into their account and use the Upgrade Character button from the Character Creation Screen.

Players can also choose to use the Heroic Character button to upgrade an existing character to level 85. That upgraded character will receive all the perks of being a Heroic Character.

Note that getting a Heroic Character will not add a character slot to your account. You must have a free character slot or upgrade a current character.

Progression servers[edit]

Fippy Darkpaw and Vulak’Aerr servers will not have Heroic Characters until the Call of the Forsaken expansion is unlocked. These servers will not be eligible for a free Heroic Character since Call of the Forsaken will not be unlocked during the two-week trial period.


The platinum, Bayle Marks, food and drink a Heroic Character starts with is a one-time offering, rewarded to the first character you create or upgrade using the feature. If you delete your character and make a new one, you will not receive these items again.


If you purchase a Heroic Character for 3500 Station Cash (SC), if you ever delete a Heroic Character you'll have the option to create a new one. If you delete a Heroic Character you purchased, you'll have the option to create another Heroic Character. Only the first Heroic Character created after each purchase will start with platinum.


During the free trial period, players can have one Heroic Character on their account without paying any Station Cash. If they try a class and decide they don't like it, they can delete it. They'll still be able to make another Heroic Character for free during the trial period. Every Heroic Character you create after the first won't start with platinum, so be a bit careful about deleting these.

After the trial period, if a player deletes their Heroic Character it works just like deleting ANY character on their account. It's just deleted. They won't get another free Heroic Character after 3/26/2014 (unless they offer these for free again in the future).

Starting area[edit]

New Heroic Characters start in a special new area in Feerrott, the Dream. Feerrott, the Dream and the first two tiers of House of Thule have been adjusted to help new and returning players.

First steps after upgrading[edit]


  • Go through ALL AA tabs (Inventory, Alt Adv.), and hotkey the ones that you are "hotkeyable".
  • Not a bad idea, to write down on a sheet of paper what they do.
  • Advisable, to put them on different hotbars. , e.g. utility, travel, veteran rewards, combat enhancers (get out of a sticky situation etc.).


  • If you can, copy one over from another character (incl. socials etc.).
  • Make a hotbar for your clickies (the heroic gear comes with a good few of them)


  • Get a Mercenaries
  • There is a new quest, designed to be soloable by Heroic Characters. It is given by Investigator Drolmer in Feerrott, the Dream and can only be done by Heroic Characters since the April 29, 2014 patch is open to all. The reward grants access to Journeyman Tier 5 Mercenaries.


Go to a lower level zone, and try your spells and AA's. That might 10-15 hours easily. Then, group with people that might help you. By the way, since you very likely wear the heroic gear, all people can recognize that you're a heroic character (you're clad in green gear). So, be upfront about your lack of knowledge.
