  • Exclusive Heroes and Gear

    Several heroes and gear within the game are considered to be "Exclusive" based on how they were released, which may affect their eligibility to be included in packs. Any hero or gear that has been released via the Champion and Grand Champion packs are not considered to be exclusive, and can generally be considered eligible for any pack that is offered.

    Heroes that have been released into the game via PVP or a Quest event are "Exclusive", and are generally ineligible for inclusion in packs. This is especially true for our Group Feature packs, where all Legendary heroes in the game belonging to the specified group/specialty are included. Exclusive heroes are, by definition, excluded from these.

    If an Exclusive Hero is intended to be included in a pack, the pack description will clearly identify that particular hero as being included.

    The current list of Exclusive Heroes is found below:

    * Asha'Bellanar, Event Exclusive
    * Shapeshifter Morrigan, Event Exclusive
    * Emerald Graves Nug, PVP Exclusive
    * Wild Sylvan, Gauntlet:Origins Exclusive
    * Qunari Defender, Gauntlet:Civil War Exclusive
    * Fade-Touched Lurker, Banished Plane Exclusive
    * Mountain Dracolisk, Trail of the Dracolisk Exclusive
    * Hunter Shade Dracolisk, Trail of the Dracolisk Exclusive
    * Sharptail Dracolisk, Trail of the Dracolisk Exclusive
    * Primal-Trained Longma, Trail of the Dracolisk Exclusive

    Any previously exclusive heroes not on this list have been removed from exclusivity and may be found in the pack specials and group features for which they are eligible.



    Gear may be released initially as a PVP or Quest exclusive. These gear will remain exclusive indefinitely in that they will not be added to the standard Premium Catalog or Gear Packs, however they may still be added to quest events or PVP rewards, and will be added to the general drop list for quests that allow all gear in the game to be dropped, in the release cycle following the gear's release into the game. This means that gear released in the 2nd week of a release cycle will be added to quests such as the Banished Plane approximately 2 weeks later, and gear released in the 3rd week of a release cycle will be added approximately 1 week later.

    As with exclusive heroes, any exclusive gear that is included in a Pack Special or Flash Pack will specifically state that the gear can be obtained.

    The current list of Exclusive Gear is found below:

    * The Golden Prince's Raiment, released as PVP Exclusive
    * Arms of the Champion, released as PVP Exclusive
    * Heartwood Shield, released as PVP Exclusive
    * Dreamweaver Staff, released as Gauntlet Exclusive
    * The Golden Prince's Pauldron, released as Gauntlet Exclusive
    * Fade-Touched Lurker Scales, released as Banished Plane Exclusive
    * Fade-Touched Silverite, released as Banished Plane Exclusive
    * Flemeth's Grimoire, released as PVP Exclusive

      I read in a previous post that we could have the chance to get emeral graves nug in the Banished Plane, will it be a drop in the next updates or will not be available in that nexus?
      I don't see it in the new banished plane updates.

        Can I check, is Flemeth's Grimoire gear item considered exclusive - or is it just a normal mythic gear item that will be automatically added to potential gear drop table in revamped Banished Planes next week (i.e. 2 weeks after it was released)?

            Normalish. It's in there now. For gear released in the third week of a cycle, it'll only take a week to get into Banished Plane.

            It won't be in packs though.

            I'll update for how exclusivity pertains to gear tomorrow.

              Qunari Defender got to premium pack several times hence many people have a dupe of him. Is it consistent with the idea of exclusivity? Do exclusive heroes have a chance to get to the premium catalogue as a part of re-featured group?

              Also, Red lyrium nug stopped being exclusive pretty soon after it's launch in PVP (subjective impression). Is there any period after which exclusivity ends?

                I'm pretty sure the times that the Qunari Defender showed up in the packs were unintentional. He was not meant to be included in those packs and CG quickly removed him once they became aware.

                  This. He was not supposed to be in the packs and we have since taken measures to ensure it won't happen again.

                  We may choose to remove exclusivity from a hero, such as the red lyrium nug, but that wold typically apply only to heroes released via PVP. Either we will make them available in packs or add them to the banished plane.

                      Gear info's all well and good, but I feel like it's worth emphasizing that all gear, exclusive or not, is corrently available in the Banishes Plane, including Flemeth's Grimoire and a handful of as-of-yet unreleased gears.

                        There's a statement in there addressing gear going in for quests that have all gear in the game available. The issue with this current release cycle doesn't belong here, since this is an informational thread. That information would be invalid and outdated in like 3 weeks.

                          Alright. I figured I might as well throw it out there if people are looking at this thread in that time, since it is reasonably new. You're right though.

                            Is the staff of corruption an exclusive gear item? I don't see it dropping from the novice gear packs - gauntlets of the nug a more recent release is certainly in novice gear packs? Only seen it from nexus events despite having been in game for almost a year now. Also it's not listed as part of the novice pack on Hodacodex (yes I realise this source is unofficial)

Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                              Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted.


                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.


                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
