If you've hung around the forum long enough, you'll have heard the assurances that, "Oh, don't worry, you'll be level 50 long before you get to High Peak." I dunno what game these people are playing; my first character to get to the Sanctum was level 44 on arrival. This was before the Dwarf starter zone Escape from Reknor was modified to level up the character as you ascend, though — which, I realized, was exactly the mechanic needed here. Hence my new 50 by the Sanctum addon. This addon will level you up as needed to level 41 at High Peak 1, level 42 at High Peak 2, and so on up to level 50 at High Peak 10.

And yes, some will no doubt consider this cheating, so it's not a candidate for inclusion in ZOmnibus.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Hey! I'm in High Peak and I'm not leveling up!

Well, what level are you, and how far are you into High Peak? This addon will level you up to a minimum of level 41 when you enter High Peak 1, then up to a minimum of level 42 when you enter High Peak 2, up to level 50 at High Peak 10. This is similar to how the Dwarf starting zone Escape from Reknor works: it won't level you up if you've already reached level 2 before you ascend to Escape from Reknor 2.

Why not just level up in the farportal, or grind orc patrols?

*blink* Be…cause getting summarily slaughtered before I even make it to High Peak would kind of defeat the point?

But does your character really deserve the Level 50 achievement getting
it this way?


(shrug) No less so than your Dwarf character "deserves" the Level 10 achievement after getting two of those levels for free. Personally, I consider High Peak dangerous enough anyway to justify the levels.
