originally, I remember someone saying that the amount of xp it took to level up a destiny appeared to be significantly less than it did to actually level up your character (the example was it took 100k to gain a lvl rank, and 40k to gain an AP for a destiny)

My searching abilities are weak, but I would just like to know if this is true. Furthermore, to the few people who have reached lvl 25, do you keep gaining xp for the destinies regardless of being capped, or does it stop?

And, considering that it's possible to lvl up multiple destinies (from what I can tell, though I don't know if thats from tring or not), is it possible to have 2 running at the same time, or no? I'm thinking as a Dreadnought Stalwart Fighter, there are things in both the Grandmaster of Flowers, Unyielding Sentinel, and even FOTW that look appealing to me. Would I be able to dump points into them (I know this would be horribly expensive, but I'm optimistic) and use all the abilities I want all the time, or do I have to choose what tree I want for certain situations.

And honestly, between FOTW and US, some of the things I would want I might just twist in, but I'd like to know if this is possible first before I decide what twists I would want.

I know nothing is set in stone, but it's most definitely fun to just sit here and contemplate what is possible and what isn't

these are the only parts of your questions i can try to give an answer for.
epic level experience points and epic destiny experience points are two different things. i'm not sure if a quest will give the same amount of epic level experience points and epic destiny experience points. all of my toons on lamannia atm were dev leveled before the open beta, all of them are level 25, but 3 of them do not have capped destinies yet as the amount of destiny xp was raised to cap a destiny. now, each of those 3 have 3,000,000 xp towards their epic levels yet have far less destiny xp. one has about 1.4 mil destiny xp so far and is at level 4 of his destiny. so, despite being character level capped, he still gets destiny xp. i can say it takes 180,000 destiny xp to go from 0 in destiny to level 1 of the destiny, 36,000 per rank. it takes 1,980,000 xp to cap a destiny, one of my toons has 6 capped destinies, again, all were dev leveled.

now, as far as multiple destines, you can only have one active at a time and whatever one is active is the one that will get any destiny xp you earn from the quest you are in. you can not swap to a different destiny while inside a quest, only while in a public area. also, you can not take a different destiny until you have leveled your starting destiny till at least the third level. in your case, if you start in legendary dreadnought when you get that to level 3, you can make either grandmaster or shadowdancer you new active destiny and start leveling one of those up, you can also switch back to dreadnought any time you are in a public area. if you want something out of fury of the wild, you will have a bit of a trek to get it. dreadnought will need to be taken to level 4 at which point you can move to shirida champion, which you will need to take to level 3 before you can move into fury of the wild. however, at any time you can jump straight back to dreadnought. things to consider, any time you make another destiny active, you cannot use anything out of your previous destiny unless you have enough fate points to twist one or more, up to three, of those things into a fate slot. now, i am not sure if fate points can continue to be earned after you cap a destiny or even just how much xp is needed to get another fate point. my toon with the six capped destinies has 10 fate points, which is enough to have two tier 2 abilities twisted with 2 fate points unused and not enough to be spent to unlock the third fate slot or to raise eith of the unlocked slots to tier 3. so, it looks like at most, each fate point is 1,188,000 destiny xp, it may be a little less but not less than 1,080,001. i really hope fate points can continue to be gained after capping a destiny while staying in that destiny, otherwise many toons are not going to be able to use hardly any of their new abilities while they try to get more fate points.
