To bad they are not purchasable through a quest reward or something. A new coupe would be lovely on my char. Alleycat 23:07, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

I think PvP characters shouldn't have to pay for makeover credits. Sometimes I'm tired of how mine look and it's easier than creating the character from scratch. I think it makes sense for PvE to be paid, not PvP though. --Obliteratus 23:42, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

I think you can use Makeover Credits to customize your character beyond normal means though. As in, you can pick a Tyrian face, Canthan hair, and Elonian skin tone. -- 21:02, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Agree, I don't see a reason why PvP would be able to combine campaignes, while PvE is not allowed to do that.

I don't get it[edit]

So can anyone phrase it more clearly for me? I buy one Makeover Pack, that allows me to change hair style AND hair color AND face AND skin color on FIVE of my characters? Makes 20 changes total per purchase? The official text sounds a little different or maybe I just get it wrong: "This service lets you customize your character's appearance (hair style, hair color, face, skin color, and body scale). Please note that this item includes 5 Makeover Credits, which you may use on a single character or across multiple characters on the same account." Sounds like I can only make five changes on one character, so five changes total per purchase. Anyone tested this already? ~ Dragon User talk:Zaishen Dragon 17:28, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Each credit allows you to change all your character's features (except gender) at once. If you choose to change just hair color (for example), you'd be "under utilizing" your credit.
You get 5 credits, allowing you to change your character 5 times (or change 5 of your characters, if you prefer).
Again, each time you use a credit, you can change all features at once. So, if you want to change Hair Style + Hair Color + Body Height at once, you'd use just 1 credit. If you change your mind later and want to change Skin Color (and, perhaps, go back to previous Hair Color), you'd need another credit. Capiche?
See Anatomical Engineer Llye for more info (BTW, you can preview your character before applying changes - so you don't need Makeover Credits to see how your customization would be). --NIN37 14:27, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Si, capiche ;) that is exactly like i understood it and wanted it to be. still, the official text says something different or is misleading imo. but who cares? and ofc i knew about the preview option offered by the anatomical engineer and used it already...unfortunately. because suddenly i want to change far too many thing on my characters ;) evil tool! but thank you for your explanation and verifying my thoughts. ~ Dragon User talk:Zaishen Dragon 13:05, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Limitation: Unfortunately you can only choose features available for your class (for example if you play assassin you CAN'T take hairstyle originally assigned to ranger). That makes makeover of little use for single-campaign classes - with them you are limited to the same choice as when creating new character.


IMO, this could be split into:

  • Makeover Credit (this page): in-game item (credit used to change appearance); technically "Extreme" credit is different from "standard" credit, but they both serve the same purpose (and are limited to the same NPC).
  • Makeover Pack: in-game store item (contains 5 Makeover Credits, according to in-game description).
  • Extreme Makeover Credit: in-game store item.

Although they're tidily related, they are not exactly the same thing. Well, only problem would be the total absence of content left for in-game item article... --NIN37 18:18, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

If you mean that we should be able to buy just one makeover credit instead of a pack of five which we probably won't need, I agree. I just have one character whose hair style and color is ghastly, but she's so far in the game I won't remake her. User:Timus Timus - Talk 10:00, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Dervish and Paragon[edit]

Can we get a dervish or paragon that is not black(or half black) please? Not being racist, just not wanna to be black in a video game? Most heroes are already black and you can make black characters in prophecies and factions too. Can allow us to make white characters in nightfall please?

u can have a "white" paragon or dervish already. 22:33, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
