Awesome wish more games did this.
I dont recall any single player game that wouldnt have level cap.
What?? Not sure if trolling or actually stupid.
Oblivion? Not sure tho
Two Worlds 1 didn't have a level cap.
@Dinkis: Oblivion didn't technically have a level cap as far as i know but it was artificially limited due to the combat level being based on skill levels and skills having a max level of 100. Once all skills were maxed, you could no longer gain combat levels. It ended up being like 50 or 60.
@SinaMK, What? Kingdom Hearts caps at level 100. Disgaea, if I recall, didn't have one.
Nino Kuni as well
@DarkXyde KH caps at 99! Got it memorized? :D
@RedDevils: Ni No Kuni has level caps. The human characters are capped at 99 and familiars have varying caps between 5 and 99.
Seems kind of pointless unless they add NG+ though doesn't it?
Was just gonna say this. More games should implement this feature really. It doesn't effect anybody's experience in a negative way. If you don't like NG+ then just don't use it but for those of us that do it should be there unless there's infinite quests or a way to replay levels in general. Otherwise you're sitting there with a high level character and absolutely nothing at all to do.
Why anyone played two worlds long enough to find out is beyond me.
Ahhh hahahahahah... just what I was thinking sir.
its like daily we learn something awesome about witcher 3
No level cap? Dayummmm. Gonna be playing this game for a while haha and with Elder Scrolls Online coming out in a week, gonna be stuck in my house for a very long time LOL
I think it's gonna be harder than you can even imagine to get to 100. How much XP you get from enemies scales depending on what level you are and enemies don't scale with you other than guards (who are always atleast 10 levels higher than you). Say, if you just started and you're level 1, a level 5 enemy could give you 30 XP. If you become level 5 and fight that same level 5 enemy, it might give you 10 XP now. When you get to level 10, the enemy might give you 1 XP. I don't know if the minimum XP cap for killing enemies and monsters is 1 or if you stop gaining XP if you're killing something far below your level, but it's possible. Guards also don't give much XP even though they're always something like 10 levels above you. You're gonna run out of side quests, contracts, and high level normal enemies and monsters to kill, then you'll reach an artificial level cap from being as high a level as the game will let you be.
yea - I'm running into that. I've hit level 37 and you have to keep exploring for people to offer "hidden" missions. and these don't produce huge xp due to many of the enemies are much lower than me. fighting the guards isn't a big payoff - and, they can be very tough because they're usually in groups and losing the fight means losing half your gold.....it just isn't worth it. it's much better to grind on all of the enemies that roam the countryside. what keeps me going now is finding high-level sword blueprints. the 2 I'm using now (both require being at least lvl 37) I found in a worthless looking building that had nothing to do with any missions in the game. some I found while doing missions though. I currently have around 6 more blueprints for swords that require lvl 42 - 47 to use. I'm still hoping to find some spectacular high level armor. currently I'm using a lvl 36 medium armor....it has the highest armor score of any type armor that I've found in the game.
That is when DLC come in
You're actually going to give ES Online the time of day? There are better alternatives, my friend.
First to level 1000 wins :)
Our great grandsons will finish the job for us.
Odd, the guide goes all the way up to 70 or so.
I'm level 35 with only the horse racing to go, plus about 50 or so "?" for Skellige, I honestly can't see myself even getting to level 40 before an expansion comes out.
I'm on level 35 after the ending of the game with all quests done, save for Gwent and horse racing which don't really interest me tbh so it's pretty much hours of grinding monsters if you level up? I crafted a level 43 sword feels like I'll never get there, unless someone find a quick way to level up?
When people have had problems with xp not popping for quests that are within range (not grey) and with xp gear people around 40 have only been getting a few xp per kill on the higher level mobs, it's gonna take a while to level up. Hopefully the free DLC has more quests to help with leveling before the expansion comes out.
Holly f**king s*it, how did you manage to complete the game so fast? I have 40+ hours on the clock, and I've completed about, let's say 30% quests and exploration etc. level 19. About the levels, if you were stuck on the XP bug for main missions (no XP rewards for completion after a certain point), then perhaps you lost your 5+ levels there, who knows, maybe even more, the main missions gave a LOT of XP in the beginning for me, until I stopped receiving XP.
I did the game in about 75 hours :) admittedly I did not explore the whole map so there might be things I haven't discovered. I wasn't aware of there was an Xp bug? I've started another playthrough on death march though so now I am going to be doing absolutely everything
Wait I thought it was 70?
Yes, the level cap is 70, so this is kind of moot. :)
Well leveling up is impossible at the moment for some due to the xp bug...
No, even with the EXP bug, you can still level.
Um no you can't if you get it as some people do... You get 0 xp from any quest that you do. Yes you could kill enemies all day but that's not the point.
What is the point? there are no hard quests, at level 30 I was overpowered on the highest diffculty so I had to begin a new game, I wish there was NG+.
No NG+? Dammit I so hoped they'd include it...
No level cap is freaking cool and all, but, how does the enemies hold up? Do they level scale in any way? I'm playing right now (blood&broken bones) and I'm only level 9, but combat is not difficult at all and I feel like most mobs are becoming under-leveled trash mobs. I worry that, by the time I'm level 50 or so, I might be just bitch-slapping everything on my way. I'm hoping monster level will scale eventually, as I travel back and forth the maps.
Monsters have a set level range based on the area I think. I haven't seen any higher then 30 yet but I also haven't beat it yet.
I'm level 37 and have found lvl 37 silver and steel swords - and it does make you feel overpowered. but I have found 3 enemies that are level 42, 45 and 48 that can all 1-hit kill me. so, I gotta keep grinding if I want to take them out - and I DO want to beat them!! problem is, there aren't enough enemies that are close to my lvl so the xp payout for killing most enemies now isn't much. I'm hoping the devs add new enemy types and that the 2 expansions offer a lot of high lvl enemies.
That's what I'm saying. No level cap? Beautiful! But monsters should be there, leveling up with you, otherwise there's no point in combat anymore.
level 8. keepin it real.
looool... Imma raise you 3.
Good luck trying to Level Up when you have done all the quests. Killing monsters give you like 1xp...
I got 3xp for hiring a prostitute. So there's a bit faster way to level up, lmao.
The max level is 70 and the highest gear I've found was level 68, not sure what this crack head is on about
Psshh who needs a level cap I beat the game naked with my bare hands and didn't use any of my ability points. Nah I'm just trollin'. But somebody SHOULD do that!
I just Reached lvl 70 :)
