So what is a Mythic Level?
Mythic is an easier way of saying "content above level 40". So Mythic Levels are the addition of levelling from level 40 to 50.
Will it be like normal Epic levels?
In some ways Yes, in others No. The stat progression is as close to Epic level progression as possible, but there are some limitations. The engine doesn't allow players to be over level 40, but your character file will be changed to include all the stats that you would have. Various scripts have also been changed to think you are over level 40. So your character sheet will still say you are level 40, but the game will behave very closely to you being high level.
So what does and doesn't work?
You will get more HP every level as per the rules. But since it can't be made to adjust your HP when you buff your Constitution, it will assume you are using +12 Constitution equipment and give you those extra HP anyway. You will likely need them. You get more skill points every level as per your class choice and Intelligence. The normal skill caps and cross class rules apply though. NB: Any unspent skillpoints at level 40 will be lost. However, you can save skillpoints in Mythic levels, they just don't carry from level 40 to 41. You continue to get an extra stat point every 4 levels, so at 44 and 48. You still get a general feat every 3 levels. So you get then at level 42, 45 and 48. All classes continue their Epic bonus feat progression as well. In addition to the Epic bonus feat pool, all the Great Stat feats are added to the options, as well as some Mythic Level class feats. Any automatically gained feats will also be granted. Your saves still increase at +1 per 2 levels. Caster level will continue to increase as it should. Most spells that increased in damage up to level 40 will continue to improve up to level 50. Spell Penetration increases with caster level like normal. Unfortunatly this progression doesn't cover Assassin or Blackguard spells. (See class details for specifics about which abilities are recieving progression.) The astute among you might have noticed I haven't mentioned BAB yet. Unfortunatly, I can't get this to increase. Your BAB will not change after level 40. Devestating Critical DC is also hardcoded, so more levels won't increase the DC of this ability. But more Strength will.
So how do I level above 40?
The level up interface you have become familiar with is not accessible, so it will be done via a conversation instead. The conversation will follow the same order as the normal level up interface, will give you a summary of what you have chosen at the end and can be exitted at any time with no problems. Once you confirm your selection it is done. As per the request for quests to be included, you will need to find a certain NPC to initiate the level up conversation.
So what are the requirements?
Both XP and quest completion is required for gaining Mythic levels. To reach level 50 you will need 5 million XP, but don't worry if that seems out of reach. The first few levels have been designed to be in reach of everyone.
How do I know what levels I have?
All stats will show on the character, except the actual class levels. For that a new option on your Emote Wand has been added, under Info. It will tell you your current level breakdown and also tell you what you need to achieve the next level. Your Mythic level will also appear next to your race at the top of the character sheet.
Why does it keep booting me?
To increase all relavent stats we need to modify your character file directly. The program can't change your character file if you are still using it.
Do I need to have everything unequipped to level up?
Sadly, yes. The reasons are long and silly, just understand that bad things will happen if your character is modified while wearing something.
Can I delevel?
Yes. But all Mythic Levels and bonusses will be removed at the same time. This also has to be done before you can delevel in the normal method.
Will I be able to equip items with an IRL above 40?
No, the game will still think you are level 40 in that regard. But things have been changed so that it is very unlikely any item will have an IRL above 40.
