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.

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).

Does the XP banked get utilized right after reforging or can you instead use it, say, at level 15?

Current plan is to use it automatically as you reforge. ;)

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.

That's the idea! 😊

This is amazing, i hope this feature is added sooner rather than later. I also hope the system doesnt become gimicish or not give us the full xp we earn.

You will gain full XP at level 20 but a lot of the current behemoths in the game aren’t high level so you don’t gain full bonus XP like you do for fighting behemoths 5 levels above you. But the new hunting grounds island we are working on will have higher level behemoths.
