I have not played many co-op games in Diablo III aside from ones with Friends, but was wondering if Power Leveling was possible in this game.
I know that the game compensates according to how many players join a multi-player game:
While enemies grow in power with each additional member that joins the party, the rewards heroes receive from working together to defeat these foes also increases. In addition to bonus chance to find magical items and bonus gold received, you also receive
bonus experience. This experience bonus is multiplicative with Monster Power bonuses, so playing multiplayer at higher Monster Power values yields even greater rewards.
- 2-player game: 10% Bonus to Gold Find, Magic Find, and Monster Power Experience
- 3-player game: 20% Bonus to Gold Find, Magic Find, and Monster Power Experience
- 4-player game: 30% Bonus to Gold Find, Magic Find, and Monster Power Experience
But, how does the game distribute the Experience?
If a lower level player joins a party in Inferno, would they be able gain levels at an accelerated rate (aka Power Leveling) or is the amount of experience distributed evenly among the part?
I've looked around Blizzard's forums, but there is no clear cut answer - just people asking for help in Power Leveling.
