Dungeon Defenders II game Status:
Apologies if this has been raised before. But after seeing the xp grind threads i thought this would be great to share the xp.
In my opinion I don't see anything wrong with the current xp system if I only had one character. However the reality is that most ppl have more than one and most of the time up to 6+ characters.
Of course no one is saying you have to have 6+ chars and if you want 6 chars, then use your main to help level your alts. Unfortunately people do have alts its the way the game as evolved, so in that case, leveling alts should be made a bit easier, but not trivival.
It took me 2 weeks to get my first char to 74 and 2 hours get my alts to Level 74. This is good and this theme should continue, but perhaps not to that scale for L74+/max level. Why shouldn't you earn it? it can not be free!
I think an xp share could alleviate this problem. People mainly want to stay on their main 95% of the time but at the same time they want to be able to level their alts. So let them!
My idea is allow a portion of the xp earned from the current character to pass over to your inactive characters. Maybe 50%, maybe at a reduced rate. Don't know. But lets get the main idea down first and if it isn't shot down, then the specifics could be worked on later.
Below are the scenarios of how 100xp earnt could be divided if an XP share solution was implemented.
When XP share is off
- I am a new player and I only have 1 hero. Current hero 100xp gained.
- I have 2 heroes. Current Hero 100xp. Other heros 0xp.
- I have xyz heroes. Current Hero 100xp. All other heros 0xp.
When xp share is on
- I have 5 Heroes and none are max level. Current hero 50xp. The inactive ones get 12.5 xp (50/4)
- I have 5 heroes and current char is max level. Current char 0xp, the other 4 chars 25xp (100/4).
- I have 5 Heroes and current char max level, and 1 alt max level. The other 3 remaining chars 33xp (100/
Ideally people won't have alts (team game, hrm), but the reality is, ppl do because its more reliable to rely on yourself and not other people when they are busy etc.
So my suggestion is don't change the xp curve, but let ppl level their alts without actually having to use them. That feels like one of the main gripes that people have.
If you really really want to level an alt quickly then nothing should beat using them as your main. So maybe the passive xp to your alts should always be at a reduced rate to reflect this.
The main idea is that the grind isn't any less leveling alts, but to make it less tedious to do so. If you want alts, then you still need to put the work in.
Make it so the character that is sharing the xp has to be max lvl + the extra lvl after max, and give maybe a flat 10% to all other chars not capped or maybe 20% split between the not capped ones.
eg. Primary is 79 (78+1) and earns 10mil from a misty survival, thats 1mil xp to all not capped or 2mil divided amongst them. Obviously the 2mil gets less and less the more alts you have in your box.
Let's do it like Pokémon.
What like exp. share as an accessory?
Edit: Double and Triple XP accessories.
how about a bonus you can buy at max level that increases the amount of exp any of your characters gain by a %?
TOTALLY AGREE WITH THAT.

accessory could be an awesome idea. No stats, but allows leveling of alts!
