Game developers stated that the long-rumored "Legacy System", which would allow for additional improvements of Level 50 characters, had evolved into the Invention System.
Heroes and Villains use Invention Salvage and Recipes to create items at Invention Worktables that are located in the newly opened Universities. Supergroups may also install an Invention Worktable in their bases.
A series of tutorial missions for the Invention system can be completed through Admissions Officer Lenk in Steel Canyon's University for Heroes or through Dean John Yu in Cap au Diable's University for Villains. Completing the tutorial awards the Inventor Badge. The character will also receive Salvage and a Recipe to create a level-appropriate Standard Invention Origin Enhancement.
Inventing in General
There are currently four types of Inventions:
- Invention Made Costumes
- Invention Temporary Powers
- Components are a special case, converting stacks of identical Invention Salvage in to components for base construction and Empowerment Station buffs. This conversion is always available at any Invention Worktable, and doesn't require a Recipe.
