19.4.4 Elite Memberships

What is Iron Elite
Elite Memberships are an optional subscription you may buy to receive a monthly
benefit across your characters. It provides a variety of advantages to help you
develop your characters at an advanced rate, as well as allowing you to receive
additional benefits from other promotions we may be running.

Advantages of Iron Elite
Every character registered to your email address, will earn 5 lessons,
everyday, upon login. You will earn these lessons the instant you login. This
will net you 150 lessons per month which is about 25 credits. If you have 10
characters, that is the equivalent of 250 credits per month in lessons.

Your account will earn 100 bound credits every month. These credits can be
distributed across any of your registered characters! In addition, you will
accumulate 5 more credits every month you are on the membership (up to 150
total credits per month). 

You will have a permanent 10% bonus to all credit purchases while on the
membership. In other words, members will have a permanent sale running. This
bonus will stack with any other sale we run.

Your characters will receive an experience bonus ranging from 5% - 25% (see
below), to help you advance in levels at an accelerated rate.

Cumulative benefits
Being a long-term Iron Elite member increases the monthly benefits, based on
the length of your membership! Each consecutive month you renew, you gain an
additional 5% added to your experience bonus, as well as 5 more credits to be
used however you see fit.

In your first month, you'll receive 100 credits, and a 5% experience bonus. In
your second, 105 credits, and a 10% experience bonus, all the way up to your
eleventh consecutive month, where you'll receive 150 credits, and a 25%
experience bonus every month thereafter!

Accessing the Credits
Your membership credits are stored in a "pool" which can be accessed by any of
your characters. To access the credits, simply log in the character you wish to
access the credits on, and use CREDITS MEMBERSHIP TRANSFER <AMOUNT>, which will
convert them to bound credits on that character.

You can check CREDIT REPORT at any time to see how many credits you have

membership payment and it is not the end of the world.

Iron Elite and HELP SECONDS abuse
Remember that we track characters if they are logged in at the same time from
the same registration. So if you plan on switching all your friends to the same
email addy, you will effectively be limiting them to never being able to play
at the same time. Additionally, you will never be able to move them off the
same registrations, which will give them the ability to change the registration
info and effectively steal all your characters. Not to mention we will
permanently block the accounts and characters of people found to be cheating.

In short, do not try to abuse this, we will find out pretty quickly.
