The Legacy System

Once your character has completed their Chapter 1 storyline, they will be able to choose a Legacy Last Name. This Legacy Last Name must be unique and is shared across all characters on that server - so choose carefully!
Once you have unlocked your Legacy, any and all characters on that server will now contribute to that player's Legacy Experience Points. Much like normal experience points, when you reach certain Legacy thresholds, you will increase your Legacy Level.

You can choose to do one of the following:
- Display your legacy name as your last name ("Raiel Firewalker")
- Display your legacy name below your name
The Firewalker Legacy
- or choose to hide it altogether. This choice can differ per character.
The good news is that the initial post, which stated the surname would be used for all
toons across all
servers, was incorrect
- it's all
toons across one
server. Even with that correction, I don't like the idea since I was planning on attempting to keep all of my toons on the same PVE server. The rest of the idea - the XP aspect, whatever future functions they roll out - is fine, just not this surname part.
