Ok.. So I only did a few rifts on pc and just decided to try one on my lowest lvl HC wizard a little bit ago. I had a friend hop into the game right before I went into the Rift who happened to be on a high lvl toon. I got 1 shoted on the first mob lol. I am guessing rifts are based on the highest character in game then? If so.. Do the mobs stay at their lvl after you've entered or can a troll hop in on you while your inside and make you get insta gibed as well? Friend wasn't trying to kill me, I just didn't realize what was about to happen after he hopped in.

In Ultimate Evil Edition the level of the monsters is tuned to the highest level character in the game. So, lets say a level 15 character starts a game, and then a level 30 character drops in. The monsters will change from being level 15, to level 30 while the higher level player is visiting. A few minutes later the level 30 character leaves the game, and the monsters drop back down to being level 15.

Monsters that already exist will not have their levels changed in this manner, but any monsters spawned after a higher level character enters (or leaves) a game will. What this means is a monster that you're already fighting won't have a sudden level change just because someone enters or leaves the game, but the next set of monsters you find should.

Does this apply to paragon levels as well, or does that level stay in the 1-70 range?


It sticks to the 1-70 range, and Paragon levels do not influence monster levels. Good question!
