New Heroic Mode:
Heroic mode allows you to keep playing and advancing beyond the games final boss. Heroic mode has 4 tiers to progress through as you find better gear. Legendary items only drop in this mode which are necessary to keep progressing. All areas are set to the same level range based on the Heroic tier setting but later areas have higher legendary drop rates to reward players who fight through the tougher zone types.
New Legendary Item Rarity:
Legendary items are rarer more powerful items available in Heroic Mode. Legendary items can't be altered in the engineering station which will make it necessary to actually find better items in order to progress through the Heroic tiers.
