Legacy is awarded on a proportional scale to xp. More xp = more legacy. At 50 you earn more then at level 10.

Rocket science it is not.

Nope - I would actually say that he played more than me - he's new to MMOs, but he's been an "instant hardcore" player.

The more I think about it, the more I feel that the legacy XP bar *must* scale (to some extent) to the character being played. ie you swap characters from your 50th (where, say, the next legacy level will take another 100k points) to your 30th level alt, and on that character you might only need 30k.

Edit

"Scalability" is a big thing in this game - try running a 2 man instance with the requisite 2 people - then try again with 4, you'll see what I mean!

No. Bioware was counting on the fact people would reroll once they hit 50, they even said it. It wouldve made more sense that you got more legacy XP from the more toons you have.

That sounds like a reasonable explanation. Assuming what you're saying is true (which I'm sure it is), I'd say you're right.

I have 2 50s 3 or 4 20s one 30 and two characters I've deleted played til the 40s and 30s. My legacy is 27. I don't believe it would be that high otherwise.

If it cost the same amount of xp to get every level in the game it might seem weird, but since higher level take more xp to get and require you to kill harder things relative to earlier levels why shouldn't it pay out more?

One guildee of mine has a legacy level of 34 while I am only 20.

How?

He plays a myriad alts and I played some alts but focus on 1 character.


Because as it turns out, doing 100 quests on a lowbie is far greater legacy experience than doing a handful of dalies on my main.

I am pretty sure this is not the case. Legacy XP is scaled according to the level of the character. Lower level characters earn less XP so the legacy is scaled up. The idea is that an hour playing any character gets the same amount of legacy XP.

I'm sure I read it here on this forum but my Google-fu is weak today.
