Doesn't this system seem to be in favor of pumping all the points into one character or constantly respeccing to pump them into what ever character we play the most? why would i ever divide points between two characters.
You have 10 characters. You level up your account paragon. Say you get one paragon point upon leveling. All 10 of your characters get one point to assign to their stats. It's not like you get one point and have to pick which character to "upgrade." They all get upgraded. That's the whole point of making paragon account-wide, not per character. It's so you don't have to restrict yourself to playing a single class to make progress.
09/19/2013 02:07 PMPosted by AsterokMy only real question in this matter is what is the incentive to grind paragon if we all know everyone is going to jump onto ladder? Sure it trickles down to the nonladder experience pool but it still doesnt deter the fact that the community will saturate ladder not non ladder. All this grinding for paragon will essentially be put at a standstill until ladder season is over precluding me from enjoying all the paragon exp I have accumulated until ladder is over.
Well, I don't think everyone is going to jump on ladder. Personally I'll be exploring the game via non-ladder for quite some time before I even consider dipping my feet into the ladder world. And like mentioned before, progress you make on ladder will be reflected on your non-ladder characters. It's account-wide. At least that's what's intended. You can never rule out changes. Nothing's concrete yet, including the implementation of ladder right when RoS goes live.
I think it is best if you guys can make a sticky on top of general or RoS. I have seem the same exact question comes up and answered by many different CM/Devs. It might save everyone's time by adding that sticky with Paragons 2.0 F&Q or something like that.
All the information discussed so far is already in the RoS sticky in this forum: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9678948971
Just jump to the "Paragon 2.0" section.
