When my Baar hit level 25, I was informed he was ready for a promotion. Woohoo! So off we went to the closest tavern, tromping down into the basement. I was asked to pay 2,500 gold for the promotion, which I gladly paid. He did the little morphing thing where his outfit changed and he applied face paint - so clearly he was promoted. But when I went to companion management, I was not able to assign him a new Epic ability. I have never seen a promotion before that did not come with at least one new Epic slot where I could choose an epic.
Was there a glitch? Or at 25 is he assigned an epic and that's it (I cannot reverse and double-check, but I do not see an obvious new epic ability)?
