Diablo 3 PTR: Bigger and Better Nephalem Rift Maps
The size and shape and monster density/composition of the Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts is one of the main areas of testing during the current PTR session. The big changes were noted in the first days of the PTR, with much higher density in Greater Rifts allowing most characters to instantly boost their highest Grift […]
New Treasure Goblins on the PTR
We’ve talked about the four types of new Treasure Goblins since three of them were debuted at Blizzcon last month, and shown some screens now and then, but I’ve seen all of them numerous times during PTR play the last week or two, so here’s a compilation. New Treasure Goblins on the PTR: Malevolent Tormentor […]

More Diablo 3 Paragon 2.0 Answers from Blizzard

Posted 24 Sep 2013 by

Slowly but surely the CMs and devs are answering our remaining questions about the DiabloWikiParagon 2.0 system.

Will you gain regular levels from 60 to 70 while earning paragon experience at the same time?
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):

  • After Paragon 2.0 goes live, if you are level 60 and do not have the expansion enabled on your account, you will continue to earn Paragon experience in the new system. This is because you are still technically at the level cap.
  • However, if you are level 60 and decide to enable the expansion on your account, you will stop earning Paragon experience. This is because the expansion increases the level cap to 70. Once you reach level 70, you will start to accrue Paragon experience again from where you left off.
  • 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.
