 VIP access

Alpha is an incarnate power set available to level 50 characters on current VIP accounts.

Alpha powers are passive global enhancement bonuses that boost the effects of the character's powers.

In order for an Alpha power to function, a character must craft the Alpha power, equip it in the Alpha slot, and be on a current VIP account. Only one Alpha power can be equipped at a time.

Unlocking the Alpha slot awards the Alpha Unlocked accolade badge.

The Alpha slot is unlocked when a level 50 character does any one of the following:

  • completing Mender Ramiel's arc,
  • earning 1,000,000 points of incarnate experience, or
  • claiming an Unlock Alpha Slot character item.

For a more detailed guide on unlocking, choosing, crafting, and equipping Alpha powers, see Alpha/walkthrough.
