In between all of the Storm Legion speculation happening in RIFT’s community, a player on the official forums wondered about what approach to leveling Trion has in mind for the expansion. Here is the thread. This is the question asked:
“Hey, so I am wondering what the level path will be? Will both continents be 50-60 or will one be 50-55 then the other 56-60?”
Players then chimed in with their opinions. The general consensus seemed to be that players really want to see more diversity with leveling this time around, and would not only love multiple leveling paths from levels 50-60, but would also love to see new content for levels earlier than 50, as well. If the new continents are large enough, this may very well be a possibility some day, especially if Planetouched Wilds is still on Trion’s road map.
Here is what one player would like to see:
“This is how I hope it’ll work:
Lv 1-30 = one leveling path, to Scarwood
Lv 40-50 = two leveling paths, the north and south ones
Lv 50-55 = THREE leveling paths, especially if Planetouched Wilds comes out in say 1.10
(FIRST would be taking Ember Isle as a Lv 52 zone and Planetouched Wilds as either a Lv 52 or maybe something like Lv 54 zone. Maybe EI and this would be together as a ‘tier’?
SECOND would be on Dusken for one zone
THIRD would be on the Brevane for one zone)
Lv 55-60 = TWO leveling paths, as the other four zones on the two continents of Storm Legion – two each
(FIRST would be the last 2 zones of Brevane, with the 2nd being endgame for Lv 60s like Stillmoor and Shimmersand were
SECOND would be the last two zones of Dusken, with the 2nd being endgame for Lv 60s like Stillmoor and Shimmersand were)”
This sounds very solid, and possible.

You’ll have options

Seriously though, questing in RIFT could definitely use some complication in the way of multiple questing areas, creative quest lines, and alternative ways to level (this last one definitely seems ready to go for us for Storm Legion). Have at it, Trion. Make our leveling journeys just a little more complicated. Options are just what we need.
