    Question about levels and experience

    Hi guys!

    My first post and just a few questions:

    - When do we get diminishing returns playing Baal runs on normal?

    What im trying to find out is when should i start playing nightmare to get more experience that the one that i get doing normal baal runs?

    Hope my question is clear..english is not my native language.

    Cheers

    Luis

    There's an excellent, color coded chart on strategy.diabloii.net, but I can't find it right now...I thought I favorited it, oh well :\

    Anyhow, most people stop normal baaling at 45.

    The table gets inaccurate in hell mode because there are a couple of areas which have a far higher level than the others, like the pits. From charlevel 25 on, XP get modified by a factor of charlevel/arealevel for areas of a higher level IIRC. That's why the table has a drastical change at that level. The penalty for lower level areas is far more severe and you will get nearly no XP for areas/monsters with a level being more than 5 below the character level.

    In addition to that, there is another XP penalty from charlevel 75 on, as you can see in the mentioned table.

    See the strategy compendium for a list of area levels. The link is in my sig.

    Meh, most casters can do nightmare just fine at level 40, or even sooner. Meleers need extra levels to hit things of higher levels though. Just another example of how unbalanced casters are..
