Overview

Veteran Reward Powers are permanent powers that a player may claim once his or her account has been active for a certain length of time. All Veteran Reward powers are available separately for each character on that player's account, including new characters. Some of these powers are mutually exclusive. After selection, these powers cannot be re-selected, so choices should be carefully considered.

Attacks from the Veteran Rewards Program are affected by recharge and accuracy/tohit buffs, but no other buffs. However, their damage can be increased if the target is suffering from resistance debuffs.

Prestige Sprints

These powers may be claimed after being active for 12 months. All four of these powers are awarded as a single package.
