What happens if you're a grand and you accept quests? I know your meter is frozen but is the game still keeping track? Is doing every quest just wasting quests you could be using to get to lvl 60 or will some people just jump to lvl 60? I want to know if it's a good idea for me to do every quest.
Yeah, I've never really worried about this, but it's true, the game is *not* still keeping track of the experience you earn past 50. When you hit the cap, you hit the cap. Some people stop doing quests entirely because of this, but Kingsisle released this note to explain some things about experiencing game content even though you're level 50. Of particular interest is the last paragraph:
If you’re close to or already at level 50, we invite you to explore Grizzleheim, the new crafting system, and the Bazaar and hope you are interested in seeing what new things we have in store for you soon.
Thank you for playing Wizard101!
People weren't wanting to play Grizzleheim because they were missing out on experience. That note seemed to be KI's way of saying fhuggedaboutit.
The only time I've seen them not allow you to get to maximum level through questing alone was way back in the beginning of the game when Mooshu was endgame. Thomas ended up stuck at level 45 until Dragonspyre was released. Sure, there were a few level 50's hanging around at that time, but that was because back in beta players could level up their characters by running instances over and over and over. This was changed so that you could only receive experience for running an instance twice. (it didn't really matter [outside of PVP] since at that time there weren't any level 48 spells)
I can't give you a solid for sure answer because, well, I don't work there. But, I'm going to give them a vote of confidence on this issue. I think we'll be able to get all the way to level 60 by the end of Celestia.
