Character creation

A character can be created in different leagues. The game recommends to start in the current standard challenge league.

Once the league has been choose, a character class can be selected. The classes differ by starting location on the passive skill tree, the quest rewards they're given, by their base attributes and their general appearance and voice. They also each have different possible Ascendancy classes.

Players can freely choose the name of their character, however it has to be unique on the realm and it is not possible to use non-ascii letters or numbers in the name. The only special character allowed is the underscore.

By default only 24 characters can be created. After that existing characters have to be deleted in order to create new a one; however this limit can be extended by purchasing additional character slots from the Path of Exile Shop.
