I just installed the SoU expansion pack and then attempted to login to Dyso Secondery with my character.

I was unable to login and was presented with a dialog box that said:

Invalid character - Player login refused. Item equipped with an "item level" disallowed by server restrictions.

I don't know what caused this, (and I'm not trying to use a hacked character icon_smile.gif ). I was able to login with a different character without problems from the same client so I don't think it is my install. Seems something is up with my server vault character. My last successful login was early in the week so I know it used to work ok before the expansion pack install. Also - I was able to connect to the new SoU server that is running without problems.

Please help! Thanks!

Tiarella Jones~

As Bri (or was it Gorb? - sorry) posted in the Official Announcements, this is because they lifted the default DR on items by a few levels with SoU. So if you have something equipped that you needed to be Level 7 for, like a Greater Swordsmen's Belt, and you are Level 7, well now with SoU the DR is like 10, so it's invalid on your character. This should NOT happen with customized items, I think.

They just need to find what items these are and fix them. Fortunately, BioWare figured this was going to happen, and fixed the bug that used to trash your character if you tried to join a game with an "illegally equipped" item.

I Have the same problem as you guys


I was fighting in the sewers against the glather lord, then I had a instand death with no reason (i did'nt do anything unuseal), Then I told Falkhor(DM) about this problem end he raised me, Then I Died again end also lowerd a level at the same time,

Anyway the problem is that I have a ring (Spell Absortion LvL20 only) end I lowerd A level(to 19) so I'm normaly not able to carry the ring end I can't log in now,

He sais:
" Invalid character - Player login refused. Item equipped with an "item level" disallowed by server restrictions. "
Or something like that,

There are more threads like this one. The character handling guy (Conrad) doesn't feel like going in on everybody's character and remove the item and stuff. Since there are like a billion guys having the same problem, he would probably go nuts after a while. So, you just have to create a new character. Hopefully we'll have a vault wipe soon anyways.
