Game Progress Route for Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning covers information regarding a recommended progression path for the main campaign of the game. It aims to provide important points of the game to avoid any missing important aspects such as relevant Locations, NPCs, Items, as well as involved boss encounters. For a detailed guide, please visit our Walkthrough page.
Take note of each zone's level range (marked in brackets). With the release of Re-Reckoning comes an important change to zone and enemy levels. In the original game, zones employed a 'Level-locking' system where the enemy levels get locked to the level the player enters the zone, limited by the zone's minimum and maximum level range, and would stay that way for the rest of the game. For example, if a player entered Webwood, which has a level range of 2-12 while the player was level 5, enemies will be locked at level 5. If they entered at level 1, enemies will be locked at the minimum level 2. If they entered at level 12 or above, enemies will be locked to the maximum level 12.
With Re-Reckoning, the enemy levels are recalculated to scale with player level each time a zone is entered, limited only by the zone's level range. Scaling will also be affected by the current difficulty setting, being offset by +3 above your level on the Very Hard difficulty.
As an example, a zone with a level range of 10-25 on Very Hard will scale as follows:
- Entering at level 5 -> Enemies are level 10
- Entering at level 15 -> Enemies are level 18
- Entering at level 30 -> Enemies are level 25
Conversely, enemy levels will scale lower on easier difficulty levels but only within the zone's level range.
