    Default If level cap is increased to 34

    If level cap is ever increased to 34, please consider adding something that improves Scion feats on each rank to each additional level. Scion feats are awesome and each of them could make for an interesting theme to create a skill tree or something based on them, honestly I don't see that happening. I do think improved scion feats could be a thing, in fact I feel such could have some rather interesting things thematically going on with it. I think I recall a discussion at some point where the devs themselves were speculating increasing the cap to level 34, though I could be wrong.

    Increasing past 30 will be too much. 30 is the sweet spot IMO.

    I'd argue. Raising cap to 32 wouldn't be stupidity. Sharn and Ravenloft coming out it would give leeway and more fun to running epics!
    Of course, keep the ETR at 30 and the legendary feats. Raising the abilities would make it too op though. But could change it that it starts weak at 30, meh at 31, and godly at 32.

    It's not such a stupid idea as SSG isn't going to add it idea.

    I think before there is a discussion on what additional levels should have, there should be a discussion on if more levels are even needed.

    Now, if DDO didn't have a reincarnation system then that might be a reason to add more levels because your player base can no longer advance.

    So why would DDO need more levels beyond 30?

    The correct answer is "it doesn't", and I sincerely hope this thread wasn't prompted by the devs saying they're actually considering it.

    Because I like a challenge, Here's some thoughts:

    *Someplace to actually USE all those ml29/30 items the devs seem to love so much
    **E.G. something to justify the insane grinds

    *Somewhere to add new levels of extreme difficulty(though given how interesting Reaper turned out...)

    *Option to recycle content for a 3rd time around. Legendary Gianthold, anyone?

    Do not increase the level cap. 30 is fine.

    This would actually be pretty awesome.

    I recall when MOTU an epics were first being discussed, assuming this was going to be the case and envisioning what sort of amazing splits I would make.

    My level of enjoyment has steadily decreased with each max level increase over 20. 20 is typical for PNP, and at 20 the numbers are easier to manage.

    At level 20 without EDs, I might use a 1 minute clickie that increases my strength by +6 psionic for that atk/dmg boost. At level 30 with EDs? What's a clickie anyway?

    I've been playing between hiatuses as is, and sadly enough, I still spend money on the game.. If they raise the cap again, my level of "out-ness" will surely sky-rocket.

    A game isn't fun if you have to play 16 hours a day 7 days a week to reap the benefits.

    Furthermore... Our servers are stretched thin, and we don't have enough people to reliably run content anymore, and people have become such "picky eaters" that they won't play less popular content at all because the loot is extremely out-classed by the latest and greatest. Fix the under-population problem, and the old and abandoned content problem, and then I will consider accepting a level cap increase.

    ^ This.

    The game needs a loot pass desperately, and to re-balance the older content to bring it up to par with current XP levels. We definitely do not need a level increase. This is not World of Warcraft.

    If dumb idea is applied, dumb suggestion won't fix it

    Really more than 1 scion feat? Facepalm

    And lvl 34 is from cannith crafting lvl 30 gear, cause you ciuld raise the chest lvl to 34 so they thought it would make sense invalidating all rng gear dropped

    Nowadays the chest lvl can be higher and almost every crafting/named stuff invalidated cannith crafting again, except certain specific stuff for leveling (and let's assume it, you need to fill the gap between heroic and epic slavers with leftovers caude they're really bad making named gear)

    Not as bad as the op tho with the vampirism obsession
    psykopeta is finally baconpletionist because there isn't anything to delay it more - thelanis, where the gimps claim to be pros and noobs claim to be pros, no newbies allowed(unless they claim to be pros), we have enough drama w/o them. PS: I post only in the latest thread shown in main page, in the weird case u want something from me, feel free to send pm

    No. What would be more helpful would be more interesting epic feats.

    Yeah, I can agree with this!

    Personally, I'd rather see weapon attachment than "Communion of scribing" for the Scion Of Mechanus Feat!
