What is the Difference Between Legendary Mode And Classic Mode In Mass Effect Legendary Edition

Mass Effect Legendary Edition: Legendary Mode Vs Classic Mode
The two modes are distinguished by their level scaling method.

The main difference between the two modes is that of Level Scaling. In the original Mass Effect games, you would need two runs through a campaign to level up your character completely. However, with the new Legendary mode players are able to do so in just one run of the character. This might be partly down to the fact that the Legendary Mode has only 30 levels as opposed to the Classic Mode’s 60. So, due to this players are able to farm XP faster and level up quicker. While it doesn’t really change much of the game, you might get confused with the new levels, especially coming over from the older titles. Players are also reporting that in Classic Mode they are able to get through the levels faster than the original titles. Some are even saying that Legendary Mode allows you to get XP faster. Make of that what you will.
