    Default Soul availability

    After going through the FAQ and other posts, and I still might have missed this, but what is the deal with the souls on Prime? Are souls, such as the Arbiter, etc, available on Prime? The FAQ notes that the Primalist calling is not available.

    Edit: this was answered in one of the other threads, it seems. All souls will be available for the base callings, excluding the Primalist.

    You have access to all 8 base souls from the start.
    The other souls will be acquired through gameplay at 50 I think.

    During last Friday's Livestream (at roughly the 42 min mark) they stated all the souls for all the callings will be available at launch (except Primalist). They also stated you can purchase them with planarite and "they will be priced in the order they were released".

    So base souls are available immediately, the rest are sold for planarite. Presumably older souls sell for less, newer ones (like Mystic Archer) for more. Mystic Archer was specifically mentioned as being available on day one (for planarite).

    I was kinda hoping the base souls would have to be obtained the old-fashioned way through rifts....oh well guess it doesn't really matter, everyone ends up with all of them soon enough, it was just fun doing it that way

    Yes, vanilla is not really the goal with these servers, as stated. Interesting to see so many early join dates in this thread and forum in general -- although nobody seems to have beaten me yet.

    To be fair earlier 2010 join dates were determined by RNG beta invites. Pretty sure I joined the soonest possible for buy ins.

    Summary!
    • We'll have basic souls at the launch of Vigil.
    • We will be able to purchase additional souls over time as we progress, with Planarite.
    • Primalist souls will NOT be added to Vigil.

    Is it possible to quantify "over time" a bit more? For some people knowing whether or not they can be a warrior/rogue healer or some other non vanilla 8 capacity is the difference between subbing and not subbing.

    If its as simple as "SL souls will launch when the SL expansion launches" we would rather hear that.

    YES. I have been trying to get an answer to this for weeks! I plan to be a healer... this matters at character creation. If we can get all healing souls by the time we're raiding, cool, I'll figure it out until then and save planarite. If we can't get additional souls until the content rolls out, I need to know now!

    Is there anyone who was able to play long enough to find the souls vendor in-game? Would love to hear a report of what was available/how much it cost!

    The souls scale fairly dramatically in cost.

    For mage it was:
    Harb-- 2k planarite
    Arbiter -- 20k planarite
    Frostkeeper -- 50k planarite
    ---------------------------------------------
    Caelem -- Warrior Tank/DPS
    Carinae -- Mage Alt
    Greybriar -- <Last Attempt> 9/9 T1, 2/4 GA, 1/4 IG, 1/5 PBB

    I really hope that the later souls don't come out until the content they came with is out - that's the whole point of progression servers.

    I didn't have the planarite to attempt this but last night I found the soul vendor in Meridian who had physician for sale for 20k planarite. I clicked on it and the only error I got was not enough planarite. If this works and the souls are indeed in I cannot fathom why they couldn't just outright say it. Its not a story spoiler nor suspenseful to make people wait till day of to find out if they can play the way they want.
