The third way to earn Codex Level Points is by trading in any unwanted Avatars in the Ascension shop. This can be done once per week and the amount of experience points received will be determined by the Avatar's value.
The final way to obtain Codex Level Points is via Treasure Chests. Players will have the opportunity to pull anywhere from 20 to 100 Codex Level Points from three different chest tiers.
HoN Codex: The Ascension is jam-packed with fresh ways to earn exclusive new rewards. There are individual opportunities, such as leveling the Codex and opening Treasure Chests, as well as community-based efforts that reward each player who owns the Codex after certain benchmarks are achieved.
The Epicenter is a temporary landmark building that will appear in Forests of Caldavar for players who own a Codex. Epicenters will evolve as players continue to level their Codex.
Every 100 Codex Level Points earned results in one Codex level gained. Each level gained brings you closer to a piece of Ascension-Exclusive loot; in some instances, several! After level 100 is achieved, rewards will be given out every ten levels.
Players who earn 200 Codex levels will instantly receive a Complete Codex Bundle!
