XP much slower on iPad ?

Post by Calys » Thu Nov 05, 2015 4:20 pm

Hi all,

I'm about to finish my second walkhrough in hard, and it seems I'm gaining so much more slowly than the Steam players. I ended my first playthrough with my characters at level 10, about to hit 11, while everybody in the forums seem to end up at level 13 or so.
I thought this might be due to myself not finding enough monsters to fight, therefore for my second playthrough, I aimed at finding all secrets, all treasures, etc... I'm about to enter the prison with 69/71 secrets found, all monsters slain on the upper levels (with a bit of ice lizard grinding on top) and currently my 4 characters are at level 10, about halfway to 11 (more or less 18,000XP / 36,000 required to level up to 11). That's very far from (about 100,000 XP) from level 13 and the sweet sweet 50-point perks everyone is talking about. I've also read reports of other players saying that they hit lvl 7 on the 4th floor, while I barely hit 5 at the end of it.

Have I missed something important or is the XP system just completely different for iPad ? Anyone having the same issue ?

Thanks in advance for your help !

This is old, but if anyone has an answer I’d be curious. I’m about the finish LoG on my iPad (love the game, but I don’t care for the ending at all) and my characters are all about 11th lvl. This was with a modest amount of grinding (killing those Uggardians in lvl 6 started to get fun). I read one person claimed to have their characters up to lvl27!!! I can’t imagine how much grinding that must’ve taken...... seems implausible to me, but I can’t say for sure.

Level 27 takes 8,238,163 experience. To grind that up, you'd need to kill 6,477 uggardians or 12,204 ice lizards. Implausible for sure.
