Daily XP Reward Caps

All Skill paths have a daily XP cap of 1000 XP points. This means that each day you can earn up to 1000 points in each skill path (calculated from midnight to midnight SWT).

All skill paths also have an overall cap, as follows:

  • Farming is capped at Level 300
  • Crafting is capped at Level 200
  • All other skill paths are capped at Level 499

These caps will be lifted in the future, when higher-level features and content have been added.

Widget XP Caps

To prevent exploits, all widgets are capped to limit the amount of XP you can earn during each 24 hour period. You will only earn XP for the first 4 hours of widget use in each XP path, which equates to around 380 XP for each XP path per day (Explorer, Social, Gamer, and Artist).
