      Max level but not finished the story - What to do??

      I consider myself a completionist - when I finish a world I want to FINISH the world. As a result I do ALL the side quests and get ALL the world-related badges I can before moving on to the next world.

      Now I'm presented with a dilemma. On my main wizard I'm about 215k XP away from hitting level 130, but I'm only at the "To The Bat's Cave" quest in the Empyrea storyline which, when completed, will give me 532k XP. That'll put me at max level and stop me from accumulating more XP.

      So do I continue questing, finish Empyrea and waste the potential XP? Or should I switch to one of my other lower level wizards, keeping my main wizard effectively "paused" until the max level goes up and making better use of the potential XP left to gain in Empyrea?

      KI, if you're reading this, a suggestion: Allow wizards such as myself to bank their XP when they reach max level. Let us keep accumulating XP past max level and have that applied for when the level cap is raised. Maybe make it an optional feature one can purchase with crowns. You're already permitting wizards to bypass the first 50 levels with a crown-cost elixir, why not a crown-cost XP bank?

      I believe there is some banking of xp. When I started Empyrea, all 7 of my formerly max wizzes were at varying amounts of xp from the very beginning.

      Re: Max level but not finished the story - What to do??

      Lol, I had the same thing happen to me, maxing in part one. Xd

      I went for it and got to the end anyways. There will be plenty of xp to max again in the next world!

      I don't know if I would want the xp to he saved because while I don't mind losing the xp, I do miss the leveling bar at the bottom giving the ever so satisfying xp chunks towards the next level to show progress xD

      I would not be too upset about the xp banking idea however. Maybe add in a bar to show stashed up xp? Or give a few extra cushion levels or something?

      Here's the important question: was the XP just the overflow of the quest rewards that took them to max level, or was it the total of ALL the XP you "earned" after reaching max level?

      If it was just the overflow (taking my situation of approx. 300k) then it's a major loss of XP to complete Empyrea. If it was the total of all quest rewards after max level, then it's worth continuing.

      you will bank the rest of the 300k exp so keep up with the story i also am a completionist (mostly first 2 wiz) so i never cared for wasted exp

      edit: if anything they can give us rest EXP like other mmos for being offline in a city/town

      You only get the overflow xp from the quest that maxed you. Anything after that will be lost.

      However, each world always provides enough xp to max again, and *usually* right before the last boss too.

      That is the silver lining I suppose, but still ... all that lost XP ... *ugh* what a waste.

      Well, I suppose in the interim I could ....

      - clean up any remaining "Defeat x amount of enemy" badges
      - finish off Monstrology badges
      - earn enough tickets to get 5 "Participation Trophy" reagents towards the "Revered Crafter" badge
      - go fishing

      whenever there is a level cap increase, the same update will always bring more quests to level up to that new cap anyways

      Re: Max level but not finished the story - What to do??

      Hi there. I have two wizards currently at max level before they have completed Empyrea, and I've put them on pause to work on a third wizard. Now the third wizard is getting close and I am still only in Sardonyx. I spoke with my adult son about this the other day, and we both agreed we'd hate to see wastage of all that xp if we continue on without waiting for a new level cap. But each to their own, and I can see others points of view on this dilemma as well. It's true that with a new level cap and a new world to complete, you will again reach that max level before you finish it. So I ask myself, what am I waiting for? I guess it's watching that massive amount of xp send your xp bar racing toward the next level, it's like a small adrenaline rush to get there and know you worked hard for it. For me, it's that sense of achievement, if I dont see progress as I am questing, I feel like I am missing out on something that makes the game worthwhile to play. And while some days I have the mentality that I just want to get it done, most of the time I live for those small adrenaline rushes.

      It is overflow. It doesn't matter if you lose xp, you will always have enough xp in the new area/world to level. Not to mention if you wait, what are you going to do, half the next world because you hit an xp cap again, this will be constant?

      It is up to you complete the world or don't!
