How do LT's level up?

  • How do LT's level up?

    I should quickly explain, I know that you put them into the Right Hand seat and then you play. When you do jobs, and bosses, and battles, and even during the last arena event, they level up. But the analytical player needs to know more. HOW do they level up?

    It's probably that it's related to XP. But is it that simple? I guess that each level and each star that you get requires more XP than the previous level or star. But how much?

    Do they level at the same pace if you do a 20-spin or a 40-spin on a boss job?

    If you just leveled up, and you have, hypothetically, 1000 energy to work with, and you're anxious to level up an LT (let's not quibble or whether "a" or "an" is appropriate in that usage. Please, I'm begging you.), will they level up faster if you find a job with a high XP/energy, or not?

    If this is one of those mysteries that it's better not to know, in any real detail, fine. Could I just have some general guidelines that help me decide how best to level up my LT's?

    Thanks in advance for any insight you can share.

    (I play as Raynald and GrammarGuy, two of the squishiest pedantic little arithmetic-loving criminals you ever saw- 607578, 8E4618. "Really boss, please, I was just adding up the numbers on this money! You didn't think I was ...")
    Just a bit analytical.

    Its as simple as it is. No secrets besides putting Penelope on one of your seats to give u extra xp per job which also goes to ur lt on right hand seat.

        Lts level up like we do but do not aquite experience the same way...

        Everytime you use energy, or stamina the amount you used is the lts experience gain...

        Meaning if i do a job that costs 25ene 200 times then that lt will have gained 5000xp

          I have always wondered this. I'm not sure if the leveling is linear or exponential (like the leveling in game). Also wonder if common lts level faster than epics. I never really kept track of this. Also another thing with fusion, if you sacrifice a lt with levels you lose it. Would be nice if some if that effort would carry over to the lt you just starred up. ❓❓❓

            Yeah would be nice to know if it carries over..

            Common lts definitely level faster due to lower resource requirement than epics

            As far as I can tell straight levels is a linear growth. But when you star them it has sort of an exponential effect to it

              The higher the level, the more experience that is needed for the next level. Just as everything else in the game. The higher the level, the more experience and expensive the game gets.

                Death as vj said, it seems more linear. I agree that a 1star common takes very little effort compared to a 4star epic.

                  It is exponential as you star them. The more stars the LT has the longer the level up takes. My 6* Raven I maxed it took WAYYYYY more Stam/energy to level her up once then a 1* epic would. Id say at least 10x more. I can't say for sure mathematically because PA doesn't provide that for some reason. Everything is always a mystery.... Arena rank thresholds, boss thresholds, legendary drop rates, where war logs are, etc.

                    And yet the system feels like your typical RPG that isn't FF8, FF5 or FF13. Exponential in concept, linear (ultimately) in execution.

                    Then again, this was probably what PA were shooting for.

                      It's different from lt to lt also.. I've started mapping the resources needed to get a ball park idea of how much is needed.

                      No doubt it was harder archaic but the thing is... You can't really prove that as you would need to level a 1* raven from level 1 to level 35 and a 4* raven from level 1 to 35 to see if its purely exponential and in no way linear

                      What I meant is that it will increase exponentially for the next set of levels, meaning say from level 1 to level 2 takes 100 but level 2 to level 3 takes 105, then you need to star it to go to level 4-6. But then it requires 200, and 210, 220... So it had an exponential jump but still kept a linear feel... If this makes any sense

                        the 'a' or 'an' particle changes pertaining to the first phonetic of the subsequent word.

                        'a' for Consonant sounds.

                        'an' for any Vowel sounds.

                        The reason is it is confused with 'lt' when speaking with the UWE game as context, is because when saying the following in text there is no indication as to the posters format when composing the message/text

                        "LT" (spoken 'el-tee') you would use 'an'

                        "LT" (spoken as 'le-uu-ten-ant' you would use 'a'

                        Using either LT isn't understood so the reader may see what is typed as a mistake.

                          Re: How do LT's level up?

                          Mizzy, thanks. "A" and "an" are indefinite articles. Sounds like particle, for sure. And I like the rule you brought up - that it's the SOUND and not the SPELLING that determines appropriate usage.

                          VJ and others, I'm suspecting that it's linear, as Marco suggests, with a serious lengthening that feels exponential. I'm skeptical about the actual exponential possibility. Exponential increases are ... really big.

                          One thing that I'm still fuzzy on, fundamentally, is whether it's the resources that you spend, or the XP that you receive. I'm guessing that it works just like other leveling - that it's based on the XP you receive from activities, because that would be a simple calculation, without the clutter of converting whether you were using Stam or Energy or tokens or what.

                          This seems like a pretty complex bit of data to capture, and not as widely useful as something like epic thresholds on boss jobs. But maybe we could approximate the amount of XP required to level up CURE at 1 star, as a basic idea. I've seen some LT's - and I forget who - level up twice in a single pass through my 1000 energy. Like VJ said, I'll make an effort to estimate how much XP it takes for some of my level ups and try to connect the dots.

                          I like dot-connecting.
                          Just a bit analytical.
