With the heaviest heart I ever thought imaginable, the game was basically announced dead upon the removal of all remaining Red 5 staff. This guide will stay up, both as a reminder to myself, and others who happen to still view the relic that is now Firefall. Thank you for your support, in both viewing this guide, and video attached, which helped me make more content and continue playing as long as I could. With that being said, good bye to all departing, and greetings to everyone who still wants to hangout or even add me. Long live The Herd, and such. ~ TwilightSparkle, aka Riney
FAQs below! A short guide about the new Elite Ranks system introduced in Firefall 1.6. Update! As of 1.7, new rewards have been added to the Elite Ranks system, as well as a slowly growing cap for XP. View the thread here to find out the nitty gritty details about elite ranks, elite ranks in general, or talk about the movie. http://forums.firefall.com/...
Q: What is the Elite Rank cap?
A: There is no cap to Elite Ranks! You can get as many as you want to get.
Q: How do I unlock new battleframes, now that pilot tokens are no longer awarded at level 40?
A: Battleframes can be awarded as a rare unlock during any level, at what feels like an increased priority. It's incredibly common to find them during Rare levels too! (Every 10 elite ranks.)
Q: Are these ranks over all of my battleframes or just the one I'm using?
A: The ranks you choose are only for the specific battleframe, allowing you to build each frame independently and allowing you to specialize in what that frame needs.
Q: What level can I start earning Elite Ranks?
A: Elite Ranks are always unlocked at max level. This means if a level cap increase were to happen, we would continue using our earned Elite Ranks until we reached level cap again, and could continue progressing through the Elite Ranks system.
Q: What is the cap to specific stats?
A: While some elite stats can have caps, the only for sure known ones are Perk Bandwidth giving a maximum of 80 perk points to use.
Q: What is the XP requirement?
A: (I do not have the new number yet) There is a growing curve of XP required per elite rank. Originally the first rank would have been about 10% of the required XP to get from the level before max level to max level.
