    I'm thinking about Primeing a week after the Dinobots come out.

    Why not Prime now and build up a few experience points? That way, when the Dinobot skins are released you'll have unlocked a few worthwhile weapons and abilities to use with them right away, rather than having to grind through 10+ bouts of Conquest.

    I don't plan to go Prime.... I did it in the first game, it was neat. I think this time around I'll just get my classes to 25 and leave them there. It's just a new head for Prime mode right? Like ti unlocks new heads? If it was an exclusive WEAPON or something, maybe. Or like, some kind of bonus. But I can live without that head.

    I went straight to prime mode. I don't care about the teletran-1 challenges and I already unlocked all my parts. I figure I should just start the grind to 25 now and get it over with.

    I still never primed in WFC (all classes are at 25 though) I originally thought I would just leave them there for a while because I wanted to enjoy the perks of being level 25 but I stopped playing for a while and never went prime.

    I haven't played but a few rounds of MP in FoC so my current levels are pretty low. Depending on how long it takes to get everyone to level 25 (from what I hear it's not that long....if HMS decide to do multiple XP weekends like with WFC it will take no time at all) I may just go prime and build them back up again but if it turns into a grind then I may just leave them at 25 for a while. Really all I get for going prime is some parts and an achievement (whoop-de-do!) Maybe if I get all the other achievements first and want to go 100% I'll do it. Not sure yet.

    I think HMS has not made it tempting enough to go prime. They should have given a chassis or a weapon IMO.

    I unlocked Prime Mode the other day, leveling up may be a bit of a chore now but at least it's something to do.

    It's quite easy once you prime as well, seeing how you get more challenges and leveling is a piece of cake. I did it on the 30th and had my levels back in nearly a day. I say go prime. But the choice is yours.

    I know I'm going to. ASAP. Okay, well, I'll play around with the upgrades first, but then I will!

    Already reached prime 100, WAY to easy. I like the crowns though.

    What's the point in not Priming? You're classes stay Lv 25 forever and at some point you'll accumulate enough points to have made that class Lv 25 again. At least when you Prime you get new parts and you won't be pointlessly gaining XP.

    Btw, if you haven't Primed in WfC you may as well now and get the achievement since the base XP is 5x the standard amount permanently.

    Btw, what is Prime 100? Do classes now go up to 100 after Priming? or do you need to get all classes up to max again?

    Do it.

    I look forward to leveling them all up again. It was a blast in WFC, replay value my friend.

    You ARE going to at least play around with the new upgrades first, right?

    It's 4 new heads actually. One of which is Trypticon's. There's two or three with crowns and I think the fourth is the Trypy head. The beast heads I think are for just leveling to 25.

    I plan to max Prime in order to unlock all the parts. And at least there actually is something for it in this one. WFC had nothing other than an icon next to your username. Big woop.

    I wanna hit Prime mode before the Dinobot DLC comes out, that way I can have a whole different experience (hopefully) when I'm leveling up afterwards.
