How does this actually effect game play, in terms of leveling progress:
(*Right now there’s: Normal, Hard, Expert, Master, and Torment I-V. Currently, Master unlocks at 61 and Torment unlocks at 70, but once unlocked they’re available for all characters on your account.)
For example I have played self found hardcore on MP 10, from the level 1, and I usually get to normal Izcatu...... and die.... cant kill those shadow things fast enough. As there is going to be no AH on RoS, and you have access to customizable difficulty in RoS, there are some unexpected similarities.
And here is the...problem, issue...what ever it is.
I get consistently to level 33 when playing MP 10, from the start of normal Act 1 to start of Normal Act 4 and about level 40 at end of Normal difficulty.
There is obviously one more act to play in RoS, but if the level cap is 70 and the difficulty settings work similarly to current MP levels, there is no way that you can get to level 70 from one run threw the story mode. Taking account that higher levels need more exp, you haven't really progress even to halfway by completing the story or campaign mode, as it currently is.
As the RoS scales by hero level, this means that you have progressed somewhere around halfway......or as it scales by hero level same where slightly above halfway point.
As there is open ended hero progress in form of Paragon 2.0 and I would consider endgame in Diablo to be finding the highest tier of gear, I would not consider leveling characters even in Adventure mode to be the actual endgame.
There for I see no reason why I shouldn't get to the level cap from simply playing the campaign mode threw ones, at least in some instances.
One self serving reason being if i happen to be so masochistic that I would like to set the difficulty to the highest possible setting that it goes from the start.
So can anyone lighten me about this issue?
Is it possible to get at level 70 from single play threw of the campaign mode, in order to get in the actual endgame at least in some instances, or if i make new character does the game still require me to essentially play the story mode multiple times to get at level cap of 70?
