Im assuming that you have to be 'entrusted with the secret' before you can use this item. I tried with a level 22 blaster yesterday to no avail. Am planning on doing some more testingsuch as having that 22 on the team and activate an arc with someone higher who has the badge.Catwhoorg 15:48, 4 December 2007 (UTC)

I believe you are correct. I don't think you can activate the pillar on your own without the badge. I should log in a couple of my other characters when I get on tonight and see which ones I have that can/can't access the pillar.--Eabrace 17:12, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
Level 22 managed to access Wincott's arc by having a >25 start it. He couldn't use the base-pillar to flash to Wincott, and after the first mission was awarded the Oro portal, but NOT entrusted with the secret. The Base pillar would not talk to him after that arc complete. (he got 3 badges though). I dont have a >25 who isnt entrusted to check to see if they get that after a single flashback mission Catwhoorg 23:46, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
o.o I've had a couple ppl who were under 25 at the time do these. One lvled to 25 after the mission but didn't get the entrusted with the secret, so time travel via the frozen flame doesn't count as time travel.. --Sleepy Kitty 04:25, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
I have no idea how, but it seems my brute got all the way to 50 without meeting any of the requirements for Entrusted with the Secret. However, she is able to use the Pillar in the base. After completing the first mission of Peter Themari's arc, she was awarded the O-portal. No badge, though. Will have to try completing one of the arcs that can get me the Entrusted badge and see what happens. --Eabrace 06:52, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
The Taxibots on Infinity run Adventure Nights on alternating Fridays. A while back we did a time travel arc with a number of our newer recruits. Those of us above the level of the mission were, of course, exemplared down to mission level, and when the mission was complete all of the new Taxis got the Entrusted with the Secret badge. None of them were level 25 and while they now have the badge it will not activate a portal until they reach that security level. I also have a 50 level, Mia Mioshi, on Virue that was automatically awarded the badge when she logged on after it was available because any time travel mission qualifies an individual player for it. Currently I am playing a 22 level Scrapper and just to make sure nothing has changed I'll try an Time Travel mission with that character tonight when I get home... Under 25 I shouldn't be able to access any missions from the Pillar unless I am on a team with someone that has the badge so I shouldn't be able to get any missions. Hopefully before this weekend is out I'll be up to 25 and can try the Pillar again and confirm one way or the other IF the badge is awarded. I know it did so before but it may have been a mistake that they fixed during a patch. By Monday, at the latest, I can find out for certain. Taxibot Sara2.0 15:18, 25 July 2008 (UTC)Taxibot Sara2.0
I've earned the Entrusted with the Secret badge on at least one of my villains by doing an Ouroboros Arc through my VG base, I can confirm that it awards the badge. I believe I have always been at least threat level 25 when I did this, though. Zxaos 15:33, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
