Overview

The Paragon Rewards Program was introduced to take over from the Veteran Rewards Program. Instead of granting a specific reward every three months, it allows a player to choose which reward they want out of a tier-restricted "tree" of rewards by spending Reward Tokens.

The Paragon Rewards Program includes powers, costume pieces, base items and other additional gameplay perks. It also allows Premium Players to access to game features otherwise restricted to VIP subscribers or purchases on the Paragon Market. Content and features unlocked via Paragon Rewards stay unlocked for that account, regardless of subscription status, except for Reward Level 9 VIP rewards.

Paragon Rewards Meter

Next to the Paragon Rewards there will be a vertical meter (it looks like a thermometer) with a large number of notches. There will be two types of notches small and large. Small notches simply award an existing Veteran Reward badge, while Large notches symbolize unlocking a new set of permissions and a Veteran badge. These badges are given out in the order in which they were intended to be distributed originally plus 1 additional new badge at the bottom. Each time the player acquires a Paragon Reward Token, the user's Reward Meter will move up a single notch.

The player can mouse over each notch to see which badges and permissions will be unlocked when they achieve that level of notches. A small arrow will appear and point to the notch and coming from the arrow will be the tool tip with this information. These arrows will snap to the notches on the meter. Additionally, we will be updating the meter along the right hand side of this interface to represent Paragon Reward Tokens earned versus spent, earned will be shown by the yellow meter and will drive which permissions and badges are earned prior to Tier 9, the red will indicate how many tokens have been spent prior to Tier 9.

Converting from Veteran Rewards Program

NOTE: All rewards already unlocked with the original Veteran Rewards Program will be automatically selected by the Paragon Rewards Program, even if the reward has been moved beyond the tier an account is able to access.

For a veteran from before City of Heroes Freedom launch, you can simply add up your veteran rewards badges, add one additional token for every complete year subscribed (every four badges), plus one for having an account, and plus one token if a retail code has been applied to your account (ONE TOKEN TOTAL, not one per retail code). To clarify the previous statement, players who started with a Buddy Code from Valentine's Day 2006 theoretically can have never applied a retail code, and still have a valid account. Additionally, after Freedom launches, retail codes are no longer required to play the game. For other ways to earn tokens, see Reward Token Acquisition.

You can find the number of tokens you are entitled to by finding your highest veteran reward on the following table, add one for having an account, then add one if your account has a retail code.

Reward Tokens to Veteran Rewards Level
# Tokens Veteran Level   # Tokens Veteran Level
1 3 Months   19+20 48 Months
2 6 Months   21 51 Months
3 9 Months   22 54 Months

16 39 Months   34+35 84 Months
17 42 Months   36 87 Months
18 45 Months   37 90 Months

Veteran months listed in blue grant an additional token for the yearly bonus.

Additionally, the reward tiers look as follows:

Reward Tier # Tokens
1 1
2 2
3 3, 4, 5
4 6, 7, 8
5 9, 10, 11, 12, 13
6 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20
7 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27
8 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34
9 35+

Owning (but not necessarily slotting) the number of tokens to complete a tier opens that tier's rewards permissions.

Rewards Levels

Levels are composed of one to seven reward slots, which include previous Veteran Rewards Program items and new items. It also includes a set of VIP rewards at that are restricted to VIP subscribers who have earned Reward Level 9 (Players who choose a T9 VIP award and later drop to Premium keep the unlocked item(s)). Players can choose rewards in any order they wish within a Reward Level. In order to advance to the next level of rewards, a player's current Reward Level must be completely slotted.

In order to get the Tier Bonus, a player needs only own that many Reward Tokens. The tokens do not have to be used in order to count for a Tier Bonus.
