Introduced in Update 18 as part of the Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion, Iconic Heroes (or simply Iconics) are a form of character creation, sort of like a mix of Veteran Status, 32 point build, and new race.
- All start in special locations and are given enough XP to level to 15 (1,050,000 XP for 1st life characters).
- Are race/class combos with new racial abilities.
- However, only 1st class level is forced to take in this creation process. So, they can either;
- take a predefined path,
- or customize their levels,
- or reject training to train normally in a public instance (including multiclassing options), to level 15.
- Receive their own set of starter equipment.
- Can travel between Forgotten Realms and Eberron from the character selection screen, without purchasing the Hall of Heroes Passport account upgrade.
The initial four Iconic Hero options:
- Bladeforged (Paladin)
- Morninglord (Cleric)
- Purple Dragon Knight (Cormyrean Fighter)
- Shadar-kai Assassin (Rogue from the plane of Shadow)

- Aasimar Scourge of the Undead, (Aasimar, a Ranger with Divine Ancestry) - Available in the 3rd Expansion "Mists of Ravenloft" preorder Fall 2017 or DDO points early 2018
