If I (level 40 commando) join a lower level character (level 17 assassin), obviously I'm a bit overpowered for the areas he's questing through.
Other than perhaps not enjoying the full range of boss fight difficulties, will there be a downside for the lower level character?
- Game scales up difficulty more towards my level, meaning that while I might still have an easy time with things, he will have a lot more difficult time than if a same-level character joined him?
- Will he get less XP?
- Will some loot be at my level, effectively locking him out?
From the playtime we had today, all items that dropped was at his level so I guess the last question there doesn't seem to apply.
