- Each Perk can be "Activated" for a 24hr period.
- During each 24hr activation. Any player who logs into the game can "Claim a 1 hour buff" from the activated Perk. Only 1 (1 hour) buff per perk per player per 24hr activation.
- Perk Buffs do NOT stack with food buffs. Perks will overwrite Food Buffs and Food Buffs will overwrite Active Perk Buffs.
- The top Global Perks menu (at top of the screen when you are logged in) will show green if there is an activated Perk or Red if no perks are currently active.
- When Purchasing a Perk, you can choose to broadcast your character name as the purchaser or purchase the Perk anonymously.
- Global Perk buffs last 1 hour (real time) not play time. But will persist through login. (If you logoff by accident, when you come back on you will not lose the buff)
