The Banes & Boons (or B&Bs for short) system is, together with the stat system, one of several character customization opportunities during the character creation process in Camelot Unchained. The B&Bs offer a differentiation opportunity between not just Realms, but races, genders and classes as well. The B&B list was first introduced to the general public after the Afternoon Update Monday, October 20th, 2014[1], where it was announced that there were over 400 then-current options available.

The actual method of choosing the Banes & Boons and the rules associated with the selecting them have not yet been officially released in detail. In a Tech Alpha footage video[2], some insight can be gleaned into the selection process. The user hovers over the tool tip for Banes & Boons which indicates “Choose some banes and boons. You must spend between 5 and 20 points each on Banes and boons, and the points spent must be equal. The blue and red bar indicates the balance of points you’ve spent on each side.”

Current Categories of Banes & Boons:[edit | edit source]

  • General – available to any archetype and race
  • Realm - available to members of that realm
  • Racial – available only to that race
  • Archetype – available only to that archetype

Banes & Boons List[edit | edit source]

As with all features currently in Camelot Unchained the current list of B&Bs are considered placeholders for the purposes of testing and balancing, in the words of the creator Mark Jacobs “only the beginning, not the end of the design effort.” [1]
