Overview

Peacebringers, along with Warshades, are one of the two Epic Archetypes for Heroes. They are available to all players, but do not get any tutorial offered at character creation, so may be unsuitable for novices.

Peacebringers are formed from the fusion of an alien energy being called a Kheldian and a willing host. While Peacebringers take more damage from most attacks, they make up for this weakness with solid Hit Points, a good variety of Energy attack powers and strong defensive powers, inherent Flight, and eventually even gain access to two shape-shift forms. Peacebringers become stronger when teamed with non-Kheldian heroes, gaining bonuses to their own powers based on the archetypes of their teammates.

Alignment: Hero

The Peacebringer's powersets are:

Inherent Powers

Nictus and Void Hunters

Special enemies in the game appear when Kheldians are on the team. Depending on team size, various Nictus and Void Hunters may spawn in addition to any groups of spawned enemies; both in and out of missions. The Void Hunters are highly resistant to Kheldian damage and have a special weapon, Quantum Array Gun, that deals a considerable amount of additional damage to Kheldian players. If the team size is large enough, one or more Shadow Cyst Crystal may spawn in a mission. These are known for being difficult to dispatch, and pose a good deal of danger to the entire team.

Once a Kheldian joins a team, the team is "flagged" for special Kheldian-related spawns. Even if all Kheldians leave the team, the team will continue to see Nictus and Void Hunters in addition to any normal spawns they would have seen otherwise. The only way to "de-flag" a character is to log off.
