What are the limited 500 characters and how do I get credits to make them?

L500 are a 'prize' for getting to a certain level(don't remember which tho). you gotta use the Account Credits to get them. basically, you buy the credits through Paypal. but, they're pretty cheap(620 credits=$30)

oh, to un-retire them once the AP has all been spent, it costs more Account Credits, so unless you wanna use them as just a wall decoration... lol, yea

Do they have special abilities or something?

Limited 500 characters are obtained at once you have a character who reaches level 30. Once created, L500s have 500 ap. They do not recieve more ever (unless you purchase more ap with more credits) and the purpose for having them is to see how much XP/gold you can gain with just 500 ap. Then you can compare the results and see who is the "best" adventurer.

I didn't realize you had to pay just to create a L character. That's kind of a bad system; why pay for something that will only last you a few days?

It's a small entry fee for a more competition based gameplay.

Also, the payment system is not as bad as it sounds when you consider that you can convert a limited character into a regular one once you use up all your AP, via a fairly cheap advantage.

So, if you're the type who likes to kick start their characters off with 20 days of AP at once, then create a limited 500, and then convert them over to a normal character at the end. It's not free, but it's a way to cheaply create a character and see how you compare in terms of progress/skill with others who also only had 500 turns to use. Then, if you think you've done well, convert them over, of if you think you can do better, start again.. whatever you like.
