    Default Challenges in HCL

    Does anyone know if challenges are level capped the same as quests? The level 15 quests to achieve 6 stars need to be done by lvl 19? Or can be done later?

    Not a clue. Challenges have always been weird.

    I saw in a chat somewhere that challenges are not or might not be limited by level lock.
    Unverified, unconfirmed, and don't remember source or full quote.

    Epic Toons cannot enter heroic challenges even if they are within four levels of such.
    Tested on our Openguild channel.

    Also looking at error message, it is quite possible challenges are level +4 lockout.

    This should be easy enough to test. Take a level 9+ character and try to enter a level 4 challenge. There is no risk testing this because, if you can't get in, you can still do it on a higher level setting. If a level 15 (or even 19) can enter a level 4 challenge then you can safely get 5 stars on any challenge by doing it when way over level (you'll just be missing out on the 6th star because you are not doing it at the max difficulty setting).

    Anybody? Can we enter level 4 min challenges as a level 9?

    In Von 3 the breakables in the Troll Ambassador optional room are slow to get to and unnecessary for ransack.

    I do not know about 9, but I was 14 trying to farm for gear and could not get into any of the base challenges that have a 4-15 range, at any level setting.

But really, the EPL's are not worth the pain of 6 million XP in off destinies/sphere's.

    I'm 12 now - will go in and recall out to test!

    You're totally right. I'm not allowed into Kobold Chaos or Circles of Power; didn't test Behind the Door. Damn. Editing original post to clarify this - but I'm so sure I could get in at 10! I'm obviously now massively second guessing myself and wondering if I only did Colossal Crystals, Buying Time and another Kobold one.

    Guild chat agrees with the lockout of level 4 to _ is at 4+4=8.
