The first playthrough brings you from level 1 to 51. After you start NG+, the game starts over at level 51.
How far does this playthrough bring you? Will you get all the way to level 100 on the second playthrough, or does it stop somewhere and make way for a third playthrough with the same character with even more difficult foes?
How many repetitions of NG+ exist, and what are the appropriate level ranges for each?
- NG+1 starts at level 51.
- NG+2 starts at level 81.
- NG+3 starts at level 100.
- NG+4 starts at level 120.
- NG+5 starts at level 120 too.
So yeah, it appears there’s no end to how many times you can NG+ — but there’s also no point.
These numbers are fixed. If your character has a higher level than 51 at the start of NG+ (my Engineer was level 54 when he made the jump), the game will still start at level 51 and monsters will adjust in their allotted level brackets accordingly.
Before you start planning your wonderful adventure towards and beyond NG+∞, you want to keep in mind that your character can only play in multiplayer with other players in the same New Game Plus tier. That means you will need to start a new character at level 1 to play with friends who are still midway their first quest.
