View Full Version : Ego Cap Question



Zombie Stark

I've read on forums and in-game chat that the new ego cap is 5806. With all my weapon/vehicle skills maxed to 2O and all but the "The Claw ll" pursuits complete I'm left at ego5776. Once I complete the claw2 I'll cap out at 5791, with no other way to raise my ego.

So my question is this, what is the official ego cap? If it's 5806 then why am I stuck at 5791 with no other way to get that last 15 ego rep.

If you have everything completed included the DLC goals then file an ticket as this is well known bug connected to the cerberus ranks. Or maybe the max EGO rank is 5791 and the 5806 figure is an miscalculated figure repeated because someone somewhere read it and pushed it forward and it spread.

Thanks for the info. Guess I'll be submitting a ticket then.

You likely are missing a portion of pursuits they added to the game and removed. Here's a breakdown.

EGO Grid:
285 Perk Points (80 Default + 15 DLC 5 = 95 * 3 Ranks) * 10 EGO per level. = 2850
20 Power Points (4 powers * 5 ranks) * 10 EGO per level = 200

Weapons/Vehicles:
13 Weapons * 19 levels * 4 EGO per level = 988
3 Vehicles * 19 Levels * 4 EGO per level = 228

Pursuits:
Mount Tam 65
Madera 65
Marin 70
Sausalito 65
San Francisco 65
Co-op Maps 105
Arkfalls (60) 65 (Arkbreak pursuit added since launch, adding 5)
Enemy Groups 30
Competitive Multiplayer (180) 195 (Dueling Pursuit added since Launch increasing this 15)
EGO Evolution 95
Combat 180
Vehicles 100

Actually... It has nothing todo with the cerb bug. It's because Trion decided to remove a certain amount of pursuits due to them being "limited time" only pursuits. Basically you have to sh!t out like alot of us do too... I'm in the same boat as you but I am missing 5 EGO instead of 15.

Thanks Fuzzle. As far as I can tell I've gotten all of those complete minus 1 arktech. Hopefully trion can fix this for me.

You are probably missing some of those removed pursuits. I beleive they removed them from the pursuits list for everyone so you can not actually see if you got them or not. :(

I believe they were Episode pursuits (but Fuzzle may know better than me). Most of the removed pursuits rewarded titles or ingame outfuits/headgear so is not so hard to check you have them... However the Most Wanted Competitor pursuit that I am missing my 5 ego from does not award anything so I had to go to Live Chat to get them to check whether I had completed that pursuit, turns out I didnt.

Peacekeeper pursuit rewards Keeper of the Northern Lights title.
Shadows over Defiance pursuit rewards Keeper of the Southern Lights title.
Thinning the Herd pursuit rewards Abberation Exterminator title.
Unconventional Methods pursuit rewards NO Titles or Headgear.
Silencing the Piper pursuit rewards Pied Piper title.
Contract Killer pursuit rewards Giant Slayer title.
Most Wanted Competitor pursuit rewards NO Titles or Headgear.

So if you have all of those titles and are missing 10-15 ego then the chances are you have missed the Unconventional Methods and Most Wanted Competitor pursuits!

Thats exactly what it means! Many of us will be unable to hit the current MAX EGO due to them removing these pursuits which is really sh!tty thing of them todo. Atleast bring them back for a few days so everyone has a chance to attain them again. Alas when they add new pursuits we will beable to hit that EGO, but we will always be behind the players who HAVE finished all of the removed pursuits.

Yes but leveling guns/shields over 5500 is pretty pointless anyway. Check this out.

Hmm, after checking that chart over again it is possible I could have missed some of those limited time pursuits, as I stopped playing defiance for a few weeks. Damn it. :(

Im seeing more of the fact that a person who is at 5806 can only sell guns to people who are at the level...while MANY are never going to get there and are unable to be purchasers of those weapons. Its punishing the people who did everything.

How does that surprise you? Us old guard are supposed to be gone by now, or by f2p launch at the latest since we have most if not all of what we want from their bit store so we no longer support them, with our money much if at all. That said I do not plan on going anywhere, provided I manage to find a way to afford to renew my Gold pass when it expires in August.

I believe they will as the 5806 is definitely not an final destination is just the top which can be reached at this moment by those who got all the goals completed.

Exactly all episodic/crossover adds new pursuits, so we are looking at what, late May?
