View Full Version : XP bar stopped going up

06-26-2013, 06:12 AM
Hi guys, I'm currently ego 4617, done 93/104 season 1 pursuits, 5/5 episode pursuits.

MY yellow xp bar at the bottom EGO'd up last night, then I logged off for the night, I've come back on today and the yellow bar isn't going up at all.

I did hear that you have to complete a certain amount of pursuits to get to 5000 EGO, is that true?

I'm 383 EGO away from 5000, that would mean I would need to level up pretty much all guns and do all pursuits if that's the case :(

Any help is appreciated :)

When you fill all your EGO Powers and Perks, you stop to get exp any more.
So, in order to increase your EGO Rating, you must level up your weapon passives or complete pursuits.

oh man, I filled the last perk last night :( If I had have left that unfilled, would I have carried on getting XP?

I did not test it, but may be it will work.
You can respec and leave 1 ego point unspent to see if it works.

Thought I was so close too to 5000, even if I finish levelling up weapons that's another 256 EGO points which still leaves me short and won't happen any time soon which means I have to do some of the pursuits some find hard like having 15 friends online simultaneously, do I just add random people as friends lol?

Every passive point you increase give you like 4 ego points.
So, do your math.
And yes, welcome to the grind fest.
Find active clan and you can complete much easy your pursuits.

Weapon/vehicle skill ups and any pursuits is the only way you're gonna get there. I'm working on weapons now for the last 200 or so EGO. I'm not pushing it though. New episode content brings at least 5 and the DLC, whenever it drops, is bringing new pursuits without raising the 5k cap.

5k Ego here.
You need at least 95+ pursuits (in case you got extra EGO from episodes; else you need more).
Aditionally you need nearly all vehicles / weapons at 20 (got to 5k with everything on 20 but my Cerberus since it bugged and got stuck on 13).

Have fun grinding BMGs and Rocket Launchers :p
Took me 16 James Bond movies running in the background to max those.

looks like a grindfest then, cheers for your feedback guys

How long for rocket launchers??? I got 15 levels in like 4 hours when i was grinding mine. FRC Rocket Pods > skitterlings.

I'm sure that's not how it was intended.

06-26-2013, 07:39 AM
Actually I think it is.
It motivates people to try other weapons and forces you to do the pursuits / explore the world instead of just grinding exp at the same spot over and over again.

Just don't think they looked that hard at the later lvls.
Imagine it was overlooked.

Grinding boring (People didn't level them because they don't like them) or pointless guns (Low Powered) to get max lvl ... I see it changed.
Everyone will just go San Quen Hulker
Or get bored as they get no lvl xp involving themselves with other people at Ark Falls.

Arkfalls ... games main selling point
