Holy s*** I remember this thread. Haven't actually played through ME1 since I don't think. Weird to see a thread I posted in 5 years ago in my active messages.

Typically when I use this glitch on a fresh playthrough, I do as little as possible going through the Citadel and go straight to Therum. I do everything I can to get as much experience as I can while I'm there (kill enemies outside the Mako).

I then use the glitch to get to level 56. After that there is more than enough experience to get me to level 60, especially if I continue to try and milk everything.

I stumbled across this today. I was already level 59 and almost at level 60 but thought I would try this just to see if it works. Did it 3 times and I was at 60. May 2016 and it worked for me. I don't think I would have used it for a regular level up though. It's more fun to play the games through. I think I'm on my 16th run through the ME series, including all the DLC. :)

so i did everything on eden prime and everythinf i could on the citadel. Liara is my first planet and i already did some glitching. what lvl should i glitch to, to be able to reach lvl 60 in one playthrough? i plan on doing all sidequests and explorations. i probably wont use the extra enemy glitches or getting out of the vehicle thing. i have already unlocked lvl 60 with a another character...

When I did this glitch back in 2015, I got to about 56 and was able to hit 60 before Virmire I am not 100% sure though. I also have both DLC's which contributed a little, I however did not do everything in that play-through. So doing all the side-quest like you posted, should get you there fater then me. Kind of funny, because I did this glitch so I would not have to do everything none series related. Also note that I had the 20% exp boost from the Completionist(5%), Power Gamer(10%), and Extreme Power Gamer(5%) achievements. It is not much, but every little bit helps. Also I think it took me about 4 or 5 hours give or take to reach 56 from like 12(?), plus I do believe I fell asleep doing this glitch. :P
Also, difficulty does not matter. I think that misconception comes from players that beat the game and immediately went into Hardcore, not knowing that getting the Completionist and Power Gamer Achievements give Sheperd a 15% exp bonus(5% from Completionist and 10% from Power Gamer).
