When the expansion goes live, you will need to talk to a ascension master to receive a scroll. That scroll is almost an exact copy of the beta ascension buff (devs correct me if im wrong please), however you only get one scroll a day. Think about it this way-- you talk with the master to obtain the scroll, use/consume the scroll, kill lots of stuff for xp until the scroll limit is reached, then wait until the following day to obtain another scroll. you can collect scrolls and use them whenever but you wont be able to gain any xp until you use one and kill stuff.

lame having yet another buff I need to constantly maintain to level up....
i'd prefer it to be a straight gain like tithe. I see no reason why it has to be limited to whatever time period the scroll designates except to serve as a hold point. Considering there are four classes to level, and have to level them all to 10, with slowed exp each level, I see no reason to further hold back the exp.

but thank you for the input. I appreciate the answer.

Because if they didn't artificially gate it, people would grind heroics until their eyeballs bled and be L10 on the first day.

Apparently they don't want that.

I can see a few people in my raid force not even getting to level 2 unless raid mobs give a hell of a lot of XP since we have several people that ONLY do raid content..

So I have noticed that if I don't have the Beta: Guided Ascension buff running I do not gain any experience at all towards Ascending. How will this translate to live leveling? Will we need to quest for baubles to grant us the buff to gain experience? Or is it just something to speed up the process on Beta?

I've been killing overland mobs in the new areas since day one of the beta and I'm only 32% into going to level 1, I sure hope the new instances and raids give a lot more xp or this is going to be one heck of a grind.

Well, that's their choice. The devs have provided us a method to get fast xp by grinding heroics... if they don't care about ascension, they don't have to take advantage of it.

Really, you will only be able to get a million a day? So 3 days to get level 2 and then 8 days for level 3, etc, etc?

1 mil a day is a very low value. Most people I know will get that and then log off. That's not really a great way to maintain interest in "ascending".

That is what it's looking like at present this might change before release tho, imo it needs to. Maybe drop the scrolls solos/heroics and have a smaller player crafted version???

I assume the beta scrolls that are on nearly every quest reward are just for beta.

The only problem I see is that some of us, although we do all the questlines, are not able to survive heroics. It used to be that heroics helped you gear up, not that you had to already be geared before you can DO heroics =(.
