Best way for leveling up at this point?

#1AxelPoePosted 2/15/2013 9:40:45 AM
My level is in the 30s at the moment. At this point all I am getting from kills are 1exp - 5exp. My friends tell me not to start a New Game + til I am level 50 if I want the best possible drops. I also noticed that any mission I have already done, I can not get exp from within another's game for finishing it. So at this point, what is the best way I can level up to 50? Thanks in advance.

Your friends are incorrect.

the best way? is to be power leveled, but then way play the game?
drops dont get better (lvl wise) till you beat play thou 2.
so you have to do it anyway. most people dont do the side missions so they can get lvl 50 gear from them later. but you will not lvl on your own in play thou 1.

New game plus typically starts at level 27-30

I got 3 bad touches before I got my first good touch. I haven't gotten a single bad touch since and I spent 2 hours trying for one tonight.

You won't get the best drops until you beat playthrough 2.

What your friends might be referring to is, you shouldn't take any quests that have blue and up rarity rewards (except for skins/heads) until you're 50. That way the unique blue rewards will be 50 instead of the level you accepted the quest at.

So for now, the best way to level is to start playthrough 2.

Ah, I see.
Thank you all for your help!

One other thing. Is it possible that, say in play 2, I can leave all the side missions for after I beat the main story? Will they all still be there? I noticed one was not after being far in the main story. The one for The Firehawk. If you know what I am talking about, you also know why it is a lost side mission at a point in the main story. So are there other side missions like that? Where they can't be done after a point in the main quest?

that quest isnt lost. you just cant accept it past a certain main quest. after you beat the Warrior it comes back.

there are no quests that disappear for good.

Thank you all very much for all the help.

Just one last question that a friend just asked me as we where talking about this.
Is it possible to re-start a TVH game with the same character once you beat it?
