Aurora XP Structure & Reward Info

[ Edited ]
77 replies 2879 views Edited Sep 22, 2013

As many now know, there are now 120 XP levels in Aurora, and every time you go up five levels you will get a reward(s).

 

We are still waiting to hear back from Joey on the exact amount of XP needed to go up each level from 1 to 120, and when he posts this info I'll update this thread.

 

In the meantime, here are some of the numbers I have put together to help others calculate how long it might take them to reach a specific level:

 

1 - 020 = ~ __7,000 XP

1 - 040 = ~ _17,000 XP

1 - 060 = ~ _35,000 XP

1 - 080 = ~ 114,000 XP

1 - 100 = ~ 276,000 XP

1 - 120 = ~ 523,000 XP

1 - 130 = ~ 678,000 XP

 

001 - 020 = ~ __7,000 XP (4 rewards) 2k / reward

020 - 040 = ~ _11,000 XP (4 rewards) 3k / reward

040 - 060 = ~ _17,000 XP (4 rewards) 4k / reward

060 - 080 = ~ _79,000 XP (4 rewards) 20k / reward

080 - 100 = ~ 163,000 XP (8 rewards) 20k / reward

100 - 120 = ~ 247,000 XP (4 rewards) 60k / reward

120 - 130 = ~ 155,000 XP (2 rewards) 78k / reward

Without any boosters or using any consumables, you can expect to get on average the following XP once a day (if you go every single day - the average score will go down if you skip days):

 

~ _75 = *Daily Visit Bonus (day 1 = 0, day 2 = 50, day 3 = 100, day 4 = 200, then it resets)

~ 125 = **Trap-o-Matic

~ 200 = ***OrbRunner 

 

* Yes,, 87.5 is the exact average, which is why I used the ~ notation when I rounded it down to 75.  However I rounded up for the Trap-o-Matic average, so the total average is still a very good average score indicator.

 

** If it is empty (which is often the case) the average is just 50 XP, but when you get a reward you previously won, then the XP can range from 100 - 500 XP.  However most of the time it is only 100, 120, or 160 XP.  The average daily XP over a month is about 125 XP.

 

*** The average XP is a lot less if you are just starting out, but once you get to level 25 you will be given the Silver Goggles which will improve your score by quite a lot. Yes, you can get more than 200 every day, but in most cases you would likely have to keep replaying the game to get maybe 50 more XP at the most.  So for that small amount of XP may not be worth the time of replaying the game to get it.

 

 

So that's an average of about 400 XP a day, if you played every single day.  You can more than double that if you have friends with the Aurora Island personal space, and that they are available to invite you to play the Island Defense game every day.  If you can score 1,820+ points you will earn the max XP for that game (without boosters) which is 500 XP.  

 

Despite what some may claim, you will not get any additional XP if you score over 1,820 - as the game automatically gives you a 10% boost in points at the end of the game.  So unless you are playing for high score, once you reach that amount just let the ships destroy you and collect your max XP.

 

So the maximum average daily XP someone can get without ever purchasing any boosters or consumables is ~ 900 XP.

 

If you were to play OrbRunner and Island Defense every single day it would take over two years to get to level 120, over four years without playing the Island Defense game, and several years if you do not do these daily.  *ouch*

 

For those using boosters and now consumables, the average daily XP can vary dramatically based on which boosters and consumable you are using.

 

However, for those that purchased all the previous boosters (Hoodie and Contraption) as well as the Ultimate OrbRunner Bundle - and are past level 55.  You can expect to still only get about *2,000 XP a day, plus another 2,000 XP if you play the Island Defense game.

 

* It is possible to get around 2,750 XP (2,200 points), but this is rare and most of the time you would have to keep replaying the game to get a score that high.

 

 

Joey at nDreams posted the new mathematical max XP amounts - but be warned, so far most of the max XP amounts appear to be far out of reach:

 

  • The new maximum amount of XP earned from Orb Runner WITHOUT any permanent boosters (Aurora Hoody, Auroralite Contraption) is 1125xp.
  • Maximum amount of XP earned daily from Orb Runner with Auroralite Contraption owned only is 2812xp.
  • Maximum Amount of XP earned daily from Orb Runner with Aurora Hoody only (increases scores only for level 55+)is 2475xp.
  • Maximum amount of XP earned daily from Orb Runner with BOTH Aurora Hoody (increases scores only for level 55+) and Auroralite Contraption is 4500xp.

 

TO ACHIEVE MAXIMUM XP LEVELS DAILY YOU MUST SCORE 3600+ ON ORBRUNNER

XP Levels for the Aurora Defence Game have not changed.

 

 

 

 

Hope this helps those trying to figure out how long it might take them to reach certain levels.

No, you don't have to wear any boosters.  You only have to own them.

A couple years ago (I think in celebration of Aurora's anniversary?) nDreams rewarded anyone that visited during that week a one time 10,000 XP bonus - which would jump you from level 1 to around 25 I think - which was very helpful for those starting out as it instantly gave you the Silver Aurora Energy Goggles (also do not have to wear them), which makes a big difference in how much XP you can get without buying any boosters.  Unfortunately they have not done that since.

 

Also, last year if you got the Aurora Picture reward from the E3 2012 space, it would give you 1,000 XP:

You can also get 2,000 XP bonus by going to your Complex Hub personal space (rewarded to everyone that visits the hub right not or visits the Aurora space).

With the silver goggles, my best scores from Orb Runner are in the 800 point range.  This score nets me 400-500 XP because I own the hoodie for double XP.  If anyone thinks that they can score 3800 without any paid upgrades, they're nDreaming. Smiley Tongue

 

I may play Orb Runner for a while and the Defense game when I receive a kind invite to see what I can accomplish but I'll probably lack the ambition to reach level 120.

Your daily XP for Orb Runner is only based on your best score for the day.  It's not cumulative.

He is referring to how you could score higher in subsequent attempts by ending each game with a certain score.

 

For me, I never have the time or patience to do that, especially because before this update, you could not get any more XP once you scored over 1,600 points which was easy to do (with the extra boosters that is) without replaying the game several times.  

 

For those trying to get on the leaderboard or achieve personal high scores, this is apparently a popular method.
