    First Year Veteran Rewards

    The first reward comes to players who have had active accounts for three full months. All characters on the account will receive the “Trustworthy” badge and unlock the trench coat costume pieces along with a free costume change token.

    After six months, players receive the “Faithful” badge, along with Greek lettering for their costumes and an additional costume change token.

    Nine months of City of Heroes playtime will earn characters the “Dependable” badge. Characters will also gain another costume change token and the option to dress their male hero in a Scottish-style kilt or female hero in a belly shirt. Also at nine months, characters receive their first respec token, which can be used at any time to change a hero or villain’s power choices.

    At one year, players receive the “Loyal” badge. Along with the badge, each individual character is given a choice between two permanent powers, the “Ghost Slaying Axe” or “Sands of Mu,” along with all four of the sprint powers (“Rush,” “Dash,” “Quick,” and “Surge”) that were originally only available to those who pre-ordered City of Heroes back in the day. One-year veterans also receive special weapon rack decorations for their bases.
