An Accolade is obtained by earning two Day Job badges that
work in conjunction with one another. In other words, earning multiple
badges unlock Accolades. These Accolades will grant an even more
enhanced set of powers and benefits. Additional charges can also be
earned for your Day Job Accolade powers by logging off from either of
the areas associated with the two badges that unlocked the Accolade.
Below is a list of some, but not all, of the Day Job Accolades
available in Issue 13: Power and Responsibility:
Hero Day Job Accolades
Power: Melee Minor DMG (Smashing) For Stun.
Gas: Ranged AoE Hold.
Gas: Ranged AoE Sleep.
Villain Day Job Accolades
Grenade: Ranged Foe Immobilize, \-Rech, \-Fly, \-Speed
Grenade: Ranged AOE Foe \-Perception, \-To Hit
Gas: Ranged AoE Sleep.
Note: These are only some of the available Accolades. When
players obtain Day Job badges, they unlock information about which Day
Jobs to collect next in order to earn the associated Accolade(s).
In addition to all of the Day Jobs, every character is "On Patrol"
after they log out of the game. When players log back into Paragon City
or the Rogue Isles they will gain 1 bar of double experience (when
defeating enemies) for every 24 hours they are logged out. A player can
earn up to 10 bars of double experience this way. Double experience is
shown as a blue portion of your experience bar. One thing to note is
that if a player has any experience debt, the debt will be removed
first before any double experience is applied.
If your character has a number of bars of double experience
that exceeds the number of experience bars you need to level up, then
this double experience will carry over to the next security/threat
wouldn't want to work a Day Job dressed like that?
When exploring both Paragon City and the Rogue Isles you will encounter
several Day Job locations. You'll know you're in one when you see a
power icon under your health bar that explains what Day Job you will
work towards by logging off in that location.
Try visiting a hospital, where you will earn the Caregiver
(Pain Specialist if you're a villain) Day Job. You'll notice a power
icon that when moused over will state "Day Job: Caregiver." Logging out
from this location will earn you credit toward the Caregiver Day Job
badge. When you log back in you'll gain an out of combat regeneration
bonus. Once you've logged out in the Hospital for a total of 30 days
(consecutively or non-consecutively) or more you'll earn the Caregiver
badge and will receive an even more powerful regeneration bonus when
you log out at this location from here on out.
Once you have earned the Caregiver badge you will find a hint
for how to earn the Physician accolade by first earning the Professor
badge. To earn the Professor Day Job badge, you will need to log out
from the University for 30 (consecutive or non-consecutive) days. After
an extended log out period, the Professor Day Job will grant you a
random piece of tech salvage upon mission completion. This bonus will
take 10 days of log out time to earn 2 hours worth of this bonus.
However, once you earn the Professor badge you only need to be logged
out 8 days to earn the 2 hour benefit instead of 10.
Once you own both the Professor and Caregiver badges you will
unlock the Physician Accolade. With this Accolade you will be able to
earn charges for a power that revives defeated allies by logging out
from (and back in to) either a University or a Hospital. You will gain
the Day Job benefits for both this Accolade and the Day Job benefit
associated with the area. Nice benefits!
All in all, we're really excited about this new feature for our game.
By balancing your time in and out of the game, youll get unique
rewards that you wouldnt otherwise attain. When you are ready to log
back in and kick some villain or hero butt well be there waiting for
you, and youll still be powerful enough to do just that. And with the
addition of our Day Job themed costume pieces you can even dress
