With the release of the remastered version of the Mass Effect trilogy, the Legendary Edition, it seems to have spiked a lot of confusion. Mainly, about what is the max level in Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and questions about the level scaling are common in the Mass Effect community. So, why so much confusion, are there changes to the level scaling, and what is the max level in Mass Effect Legendary Edition?
What Is The Max Level – Mass Effect Legendary Edition
Basically, all the confusion stemmed from the fact that instead of one level scaling option, there are now two: Legendary and Classic. Both have different level scaling and both have a different max level.
Legendary – Max Level
The max level in Mass Effect Legendary Edition, for the legendary scaling leveling system is level 30.
Classic – Max Level
The max level in Mass Effect Legendary Edition, for the classic scaling leveling system is level 60, like the max level in the predecessors, i.e. Mass Effect 1,2, and 3.
Are there any differences? No.
It takes the same amount of progress to reach level 30 on the Legendary setting, and the same goes for level 60 on Classic. The main reason as to why this was changed is because that BioWare, Mass Effect’s developers felt like the leveling up was too fast in previous installments of the game.
Which one should you choose? In all honesty, it doesn’t make any difference. While you level up slower on Legendary, you also get more talents when you level up. So, it really doesn’t make a difference, but rather, it comes down to personal preference.
