Soon everyone will be on an equal, epic footing. Quoting from the latest Lamannia release notes:
Any character level 20 or above can now receive any level 20 or above quest, and enter any dungeon with a base CR of 20 or higher. This removes previous conditions that could prevent a lower-level Epic-level character from entering a much higher-level Epic dungeon, for example.
So if you are Epic, you can run any Epic quest.
Interesting. But there’s another facet to this. In Heroic levels, the game enforces a rule against “power leveling”. You cannot gain XP if you are in a quest with someone that is too many levels (5) higher than your character.
But apparently, that is not true in Epic levels. My Gamer Girl and I tested this today by bringing a level 20 character (her Enchanter Majicka) and a level 28 character (my Enchanter Ejecta) into a level 21 quest Outbreak on Epic Elite.
We proved two things:
- There is no power level penalty to XP when in Epics
- Two enchanters with a couple of melee hirelings will totally own this quest
So anyone who is Epic will be able to run any quest that is Epic without entry barrier or XP penalty.
I am not attempting to argue whether this is a good thing or bad; I am just pointing it out. It will certainly make it easier to get into groups.
Happy Epic leveling, everyone!
