More Diablo 3 Paragon 2.0 Answers from BlizzardPosted 24 September 2013 by Flux
Slowly but surely the CMs and devs are answering our remaining questions about the Paragon 2.0 system.
Travis Day: Paragon experience is only earned when you are playing a character who is max level. If you are level 60 and paragon 100, when the expansion launches you will continue earning paragon experience in the new system. Once you have the expansion enabled your experience earned will take you from level 60-70 at which point it will again be added to your paragon level instead of character level.
Suppose my account’s shared paragon level IS 100. Does even the level 30 character get 100 paragon Points to spend???
Lylirra: Under current design, yes. Using your example, if your account’s Shared Paragon level is 100, all Normal characters on your account would have access to 100 Paragon points, even if they’re not at max level (i.e. sub-60).
Again, all subject to change prior to ship, etc etc.
For clarity (since I saw some confusion in the other thread):
So, basically: Only max-level characters will be able to earn Paragon experience. If you don’t have the expansion, max-level = 60. If you have the expansion, max-level = 70.
Still wondering what’s going on with Gold Find and the MF/GF/Exp bonuses on our current characters when the transition comes, but it’s nice to get some questions answered.
It’s going to be crazy rerolling in Paragon 2.0, if the full PPs remain accessible at level 1. That’s making Paragon 2.0 double the big deal for Hardcore players; no more losing exp and progress with each dead char, and now new chars will start off with huge bonuses already available. That said, if the ladder seasons go as expected, many/most players will be playing in the ladder each time, where you’ll be Paragon level 0, at least at the start of the season.
