experience table

Does anyone know of an experience table showing how much experience is necessary to level at each level?

I'm a numbers guy. I just sorta wanna plot the curve and stuff.

The closest thing they've got currently is the yellow bar at the base of your screen. From what I found during the Beta, it's similar to WoW in that there are obvious sections in the bar which make it easier to calculate your distance from leveling up. Also, as in any MMO, the higher level you attain, the more difficult it becomes to level up again. However, I am unsure whether the points go up exponentially or if it is a repeat of the same number. However, it felt pretty well balanced and the key would be to pick up as many side quests as possible. There are class quests which are a great source of XP, but you'll need to complete the side quests as well, or pary up to complete many of them.

Side note/after thought: It might also tell you your current XP and how much you'll need to level up on your character sheet.

The closest thing so far is the bar at the bottom of the screen when you're playing. The bar tells you how many experience points you currantly have and how many you need to advance. The total number of points needed should remain constant between classes.

I don't think anyone has undertaken this endeavor yet--it has not been datamined from the game like most of the items in the databases, and there are very few 50's running around. Odds are none of them have taken the time to record the exp requirements for every level.

I would expect something like this a few weeks or months post-launch.

You can expect to USUALLY be a certain level by the time you leave each planet. I wouldn't harbor to worry about this at all though. In my experience, with questing and flashpoints, you'll level very quickly, often to level 15 in one single sitting if you choose to play for a number of hours straight.

The big concern regarding experience might take more of concern from people if perhaps you leveled solely by the experience you recieved from enemies, but as you do not, the number of points necessary shouldn't be a concern. Eventually, there will be someone dedicated enough to post it on a Wiki or forum, the number of experience necessary for each level, though you shouldn't notice and probably won't care.

Experience is simply a bench mark of what you're at as far as levels go. Yes it will dictate what skills, abilities, and places you can go at any time, but it won't limit you as to what you can do. And in the end, when you reach the max level, it will really have not mattered in the long run what the number was that you had to reach. If you're goal is to level solely by killing enemies through the game, you'll find yourself not getting very far, as the questing will dictate where to go next, what to do next, and how much further you can go. Certain areas are off limits to players unless they're on the appropriate quests, particularly in the first few levels. Jedi for example do NOT get their own light saber until practically the end of the first major planet, and in most cases, don't get a companion until you've completed a certain number of quests for your class as well. After that, you don't get your own ship until a certain point either, usually level 16+.

Trying to level with out the quests will be a nightmare and take an exceedingly long amount of time. It will be very impressive, but highly difficult. But a even broader point, we don't know what the experience needed per level are. It might change a great deal over the next few days or weeks prior to launch, and there is no way to tell what they will be until they come out.

In short, don't worry about it.

Guys, he is asking if anyone has created a table yet.

He isn't asking how to keep track of his experience. He isn't asking how long it will take him to level in game. He just wants a table.

As he said, "he's a numbers guy".
