I came back to freelancer after a 4 month hiatus and decided to try the new prestige system to shorten the grind to mastery 100. However, I’m not noticing any change on the xp earned, in fact, leveling up feels even slower from before prestige.
Am I miss remembering or something? Because I’m pretty sure they mentioned that there will be extra xp for every prestige level, but I dont see any difference. Or is it that the extra xp is so marginal that is only noticeable after many prestige levels?
I don’t have the exact numbers for each prestige rank but IIRC prestige 5 gives an extra 2000 XP per mission, so yeah it’s noticeable. Although the XP costs to level mastery start getting really high when you get to the 90s compared to the earlier levels, so maybe that’s why you feel it’s slower?
Yes, I’m on level 90. Is it worth to get prestige at that level though? I feel that by the time I get to prestige 5 I’m gonna be already on level 100. Are there more benefits besides xp?
Prestige objectives also give more merces as you level prestige (once again I can’t really tell how many since I forgot the base payouts for them ages ago), which… is useful to activate prestige again but faster lol (might also be helpful for HC mode if you’re into that). Aside from that there’s not much point to it besides reaching prestige 10 for the corresponding challenge.
Well, that’s disappointing. I guess I’ll leave it alone for now then, having to get all weapons again for so little payoff is kind of annoying. Maybe in the future I’ll do it just to complete the challenges.
