    I had about 20% to get to 60 on a character. Popping a 530 scroll and grinding I'd get about 5-6% in an hour. So it would be about 4 hours of grinding.
    I wasn't in the mood to grind and just picked up the quest line to go over to the black star area. I'd already done all the quests in the area on one character so a lot of the side quests would be just click through quests. 15 minutes later at Brellin farm I ding 60.

    15 minutes doing quests, as opposed to 4 hours grinding. 0.o

    5-6 % an hour with scroll? Where are you grinding? Grass beetles? I think i made about 15% at gahaz with scroll to 60.

    Corrected the number.

    Grinding with alts (grinding in general tbh) is such a pain in the ass, a most welcome update imho.
    Sadly you just get 0,020 at 61, would have been great to have a bit more

    One alt, two you are clearly geared higher than my alt. 3 I doubt you got that much even there.

    **** you are right, 30 was from 58 to 59. 59 to 60 was 15 % just looked it up, but ut was also with some other exp stuff.
    But yeah, quest exp is nice now. Sadly useless after 61.

    Not useless, i still do like 1% per hour with quests. Not so convenient but i personally don’t like to vomit over my keyboard after 2 hours of grinding

    Dropped off a lot at 60 already. Was nice while it lasted. Still for someone like myself that likes to go through the quests when burned out grinding I at least will get some.

    Will make my other alts easier to hit 60 with quite a bit though.

    You can go to 61 with quests just move to kama/drieghan

    Even the 0,020 EXP per quest that I'm getting on my lvl 61 char is meaningful to me.
    I think that this was a really good change.

    Tried this new feature with my Mystic. She was lvl 60.05. I did the first and second Kama questline including some of the extra quest avaible and made it to 60.93 within 6 hours.

    Yes, I can not stop gushing over this, it is beyond a welcome change of pace! I got to level 58 on my shai through grinding, did the Chenga questline, then proceeded to follow the kama/drieghan main quest while picking up every combat exp side quest I could. I went from 58-61 in about 12 hours over the course of 2 days casually playing. I still have more combat exp quests left in drieghan to do, but as someone said it drops off at 61 to the point I don't feel it's worth doing any longer.

    And that is sad to me, I really think they should reconsider how much exp is gained even at level 61+ and I say that because the amount of quests you gain combat exp is mostly finite, with very few repeatable quests in higher/newer areas. So even if combat exp scaled higher for levels 61+, the amount you could possibly gain per day is already limited by the number of available quests, thus giving it a curve in exp gain just like grinding does.

    They'll probably open that up after they decide people need to go above 62

    It makes getting to 61 really quick and easy, that's for sure. Though it actually makes the pacing even more off - now it is not only super quick to get to 59, it's super quick to get to 61, but then super slow from there to get to 62+.

    It should be slower but not at a radically reduced rate, it should scale, not fall off.

    Then exp given should be lowered from 59 to 60 and from 60 to 61. Earning even 0,250 exp per quest at 61 would be gamebreaking. I earned 50% in half an hour at 58 by doing quests in calpheon. It’s pretty much a free level 60 for every character. Don’t ask for more

    Which quest are we talking about here? Main quests or which ones specifically? I keep hearing this and I'm 31% into 61. Any litle bit helps.

    It wouldn't be game-breaking and I've already explained why it wouldn't. There are a finite number of side quests that reward combat exp and even a smaller number that can be repeated daily. So, there is already a limit to how much exp per day you could gain from questing if they increased the reward.

    Also, you won't earn 50% of your exp at 59 in calpheon, the quests do scale per region and level, once you hit 59 you're going to have to move to kama and then drieghan.

    Lastly, you can quest all the way to 61 and I'm free to ask for whatever I feel like, especially when I believe it would be a great improvement to the game.

    If you are 61 it's pretty much too late for you. The exp gain from combat quests drops off almost completely at 61. Prior to that, you can get the Chenga book from the suggestions tab at level 53 and it provides a 30% increase to combat exp rewards. I did quests in kama and drieghan from 59-61, they aren't main quests but any side ones you might come across.
