So for example if I leave my whole personal story till level 80, will I be getting level 80 gear from the rewards I get whenever I finish a bit in my personal story?

I can't remember if the rewards scale or not. It's just that many, many people say that there going to leave the personal story until level 80, but if gear doesn't scale then you'll be missed out on a heck load of (good) gear.

Umm no. Because you would be scaled down anyway in the questing zones. :/

I specifically remember story quest rewards being the same level at which you can first do them.  If a story quest has a minimum level of 10, the gear reward is in that level range.

Actually, you tend to get rewards for your actual level when you are scaled down in other parts of the game.

However, the personal story rewards do not scale.  This is one of the reasons people recommend not saving your personal story for later.  (Plus, if you do it early, you can grow into your equipment, which is what I try to always do.)

Ok thanks guys.
So I assume to people that are saving it to the end greatly value the lore of GW2? Or are big roleplaying fans?

When you're level 80 and you are in the lower questing zone, the loot drop is for your level, not efficient level. That's why you should help lower levels whenever you see group of people doing group de.
But personal story is kind of like tutorial for me, and it's giving reward for level you would be, doing those quests on required level. It's just my opinion and I'm not sure. Actually I hope I'm wrong because I want to leave personal story for later like you.

Well doing Personal Story on "asked" level has it`s advantages, one of them rather nice XP reward and armor/weapons that are pretty good for that level.Sure you can skip it to lvl 80 but wouldn`t that break immersion to the game since Personal Story gives us a lot of info about world itself and what`s going on there ?

Well I prefer do this in one go, without breaks for leveling to get to the next part of the story. The story then is more immersing IMO.

Next to each Personal story quest you have the level recommendation, for example (19) so when you complete it you will get rewards for lvl 19. I know this for a fact cuz when I completed the demo personal stories up to (20) I had lvl 19 thing that I couldn't wear cuz I was 16.

Also the personal story is a huge amount of easy and cool xp compared to other xp gains (especially on lower levels).

Rewards are always the same level of the personal story level. I also got the same rewards to choose from everytime. I only did the Human storyline. I did it 4 times on 4 different classes all the way to lvl 20. I also chose different paths/choices when i made my characters.

Big enough differences to keep it interesting?

In some ways yes and some ways no.  There were some that were close together in the direction they went and in others that went in a different direction.  By this I mean, if you choose that you never found your sister that seemed to choose the storyline.  Being poor, middle, or noble didn't make that much of a difference to the storyline just a slight flavor to it but not major changes.  I think it's the main choice of the three regrets that drive the early part of the story and the choice of poor, middle, or noble that simply makes a slight tweak to the flavor if you get my drift.

The different paths were really different. Looking for the sister or joining the circuise and the other one all had really differents stories to the level 20 boss fight. Also different bosses to fight.
If your level 20 doing the lvl 15 Storyline you get lvl 15 gear/weapons.
