Sounds reasonable. In a way, this can now let me farm high tier stuff like Shrowd parts or Chronovore while also not letting a single opportunity of xp go to waste.
"Values alignment is the foundation of our hiring and interview processes -- no technical skills or specific discipline experience is worth it if it involves having someone on the team who doesn't lift up and inspire the people around them."
Is there a limit to how much XP you can bank? I hope it's a small amount, lest the impetus to reforge in order to re-experience content might disappear.
Yes! We're still ironing out the details and the UI, but the current plan is for players to increase that limit by unlocking more nodes on that Slayer's Path branch (similar to the bonus XP branch).
At full unlock, you should be able to store enough to get straight to about lvl 10 after reforging (again though: values aren't locked down and still susceptible to change).
Not ready to reforge your max level weapon? Well, we have good news!We’re adding XP banking to Dauntless.
This system will allow you to save weapon XP to use towards reforging in the future. Each weapon will store its XP separately. Level 20 weapons will store XP after unlocking this feature in the Slayer’s Path.
Thanks for all the feedback, and I do hope you check out the game again. Take a few months away and check back in if you're up for it. We have a lot of content in the pipeline right now (Behemoths, Islands, weapon refreshes, xp banking, and more).
I'm sorry not everything has clicked for you, but I can assure you that the Dauntless team is still passionate about the game. Even if all the latest features weren't for you, they all came from the same desire to make Dauntless better.
These are fantastic!
What a great panel! Listen to @hedgedevil and others discuss recruiting and how the games industry must continue to improve from a hiring perspective.
