    Default What's the point of Hard Mode encounters in Chronicles?

    As the title says. What is the point of hard mode encounters in chronicles? There doesn't seem to be any upgrade to loot or any type of reward whatsoever? Is it just to provide an extra challenge?

    I'm gonna assume you've never completed a hard-mode or you would've seen the chest that gives a 100 ESM + 100k Exp reward.

    They were Trion's answer to people asking for more challenging 1-2 player content.

    Works out decently well, all in all.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    Chronicles are balanced around this: normal mode is for 1 recent lvl 60 player while hard mode is for 2 recent lvl 60 players. It's not really true, but yeah, they are that easy.

    it's 50esm, extra PA exp and 100 notoriety of your choosing. If you can do them it's quite decent boost - i.e you end up with 300esm from aftermath chronicle.

    lol more or less I just do them for the achieves, after that mostly just skip HM since I'm usually just looking to grab the random chests quick.
