Experience and Loot for Thursday's Patch

Hello,

We enjoyed playing with you guys this weekend and have a couple of upgrades we're making in the next patch based on our experiences and our desire to improving the game until we die of fun overload.

As you know, we are working to increase the fun of the game on a daily basis. We are usually on the exact same page about what fun is, so that makes things a lot easier.

With that in mind, we are making a few permanent buffs to the game that will increase the fun level. These will go into the patch Thursday:

Experience Changes

We’ve adjusted leveling time so it’s quicker, especially for those who complete the story and run Legendary Quests.

The experience rewards for Midtown (above level 20), Legendary Quests and Story Mode (all levels) have all been increased significantly, depending on level range. (Midtown 20-40%, Story 25-50%, Legendary Quests 300%).

These adjustments, along with the greatly increased experience from Legendary Quests, will also make the buff from experience item affixes, potions and synergies correspondingly more efficient.

When we add Asgard and Bronx Zoo zones to the game, we will do another full pass of the leveling curve since the story will be longer and we’ll ensure players are staying close to the level of the enemies.

We’re also looking into adjusting experience of bosses to correspond with their difficulty. Giving a bonus to the hardest bosses, such as Doom. This will require a testing period, so will likely come out mid-October.

Item Rarity

We think it's fun to find more items, so we are increasing the chances significantly, to roughly be equal to the current weekend.

There is now an increased chance of finding a rare, epic, cosmic or unique item from normal and elite enemies. For players who like to tend to clear zones of bad guys, they will see a 50%+ increase in loot quality.

Similar to the experience changes above, will also make the buff from rarity find items affixes, potions and synergies correspondingly more efficient.

Sounds great...this weekend took me from 2 uniques ever and maybe 1-2 cosmics, to 1 unique and 3 cosmics, and a bunch of artifacts in one sitting...so definitely a great deal! Thanks to the staff for always ensuring FUN in this game, most other games out there never seem to do this and just worry about profit and a hardcore player base. Nice approach guys, and as always, keep up the great work and communication!

Experience Changes

We’ve adjusted leveling time so it’s quicker, especially for those who complete the story and run Legendary Quests.

The experience rewards for Midtown (above level 20), Legendary Quests (all levels) and Story Mode (all levels) have all been increased by anywhere from 20-50% depending on the level range.

These adjustments, along with the greatly increased experience from Legendary Quests, will also make the buff from experience item affixes, potions and synergies correspondingly more efficient.

When we add Asgard and Bronx Zoo zones to the game, we will do another full pass of the leveling curve since the story will be longer and we’ll ensure players are staying close to the level of the enemies.

We’re also looking into adjusting experience of bosses to correspond with their difficulty. Giving a bonus to the hardest bosses, such as Doom. This will require a testing period, so will likely come out mid-October.

Oh lawd ! No more dying from Dysentery from Oregon Trail leveling now! Thanks I might actually get a level 60 hero now :D

Finally found another two Unique's yesterday in midtown. Not going to lie, it was pretty cool, even though one was Stark's Checkbook and it had 0 points to any powers which seemed odd.

Nice job. It's great to see devs that listen. The players want more loot and faster XP, you give it to them. It still took almost 2 hours of grinding story mode to gain a level from 57-60 this past weekend, but hopefully we'll get to a point where everyone is happy. Unfortunately, the loot gods did not smile on me this weekend and I got zero unique or cosmic items. But increasing the drop rate by 50% certainly helps for the long haul. Perhaps my luck will be better this week.

@doomsaw

What is the Bronx Zoo Zone all about? Is it part of story mode or some alternative thingy (x-def)
