Sweet! So at least all of us slow-levelers get to reap some benefits immediately! :D

We're testing heavily the changes now, but expect this update to go in today or tomorrow. Everything is looking really good so far!

We are going to adjust level 31-33 to be the standard values so we don't prevent yaun ti PCs from getting to level 30 ( cause otherwise you will need 9 million XP DAMN ECL!)

34 will be 7 million, and so on. Adjusted table will go out soon with the changes.

Hi Brian,

maybe i have an idea to fix that. If it is possible you can delete the ECL and replace it with a permanent XP-penalty. For Example 5%/ECL or 8%/ECL. Not sure about a fair value. So it is theoretical possible for a Yuan Ti to reach lvl 40 and on the other hand you dont have the problem that lvl 34 is not that far away like it should be.

Quick question:

So are ECL races limited to lower levels or do they simply need the extra XP to get to level 40.

If ECL races are limited to level 38 its a real blow to the nuts ;-) If they simply need the extra XP to get to 40 thats fair enough.

Thats why i made my suggestion. In my opinion the better way than restrict ECLs to lower lvl.

edit: I saw changes are online. So this is obsolete now.

Why not just remove the ECL penalties altogether?
Unless you actually want them to end up a lower level, they don't really serve much purpose anyway and removing them sounds like a far simpler solution than trying to turn it into an xp penalty.

Update: Nothing you should care about, goodguy. I forgot that you get lower XP with higher lvl. I get 229 XP fpr killing the Black Order Regime Captain now :D. Those high XP values for lvl 40 are nearly unreachable so its more a theoretical question.

But back to the main thing: Good work, Brian. You are amazing!

I like having something to aim for....and its quite disheartening if some day in the far future (years from now, unless XP changes) some of us are stuck on 38 ;) Why not just allow it to go higher so everyone gets to 40?

ah, well. Its a debate I can restart once I get to an even remotely relevant level. Right now getting to ER4 is hard enough :)

Perhaps the banked XP system should take this into consideration. Seems very possible to use banked XP to get to higher levels with alot of dedication. I know of someone (*cough* Icarus *cough*) who has done the cormyrian expanse well over 15 times. Otherwise I think cormyrian expanse will be the only way to really gain XP at higher levels as it levels off as Brumm describes.

This also makes easy mode much harder (as normally you are not relient on banked XP to get levels) as banked is only 50%.

Im just brainstorming here. Im sure new areas will show up, but its always good to have a feel for the direction and end-game. (and dont like the ECL cap on levels)

Cheers

P.S. This is in no way a whine. I think its great with even more to do on the server. Look forward to it :)
