Different Classes getting different AA exp gain?

    Curious if anyone else has observed this:

    I am on FV and I have a group with a merc a SK and a Zerker.

    The SK and zerker are both 110 and the SK has more total AA assigned. The SK is getting more AA experience per kill (.35 of an AA vs .46 of an AA on a dark blue).

    I have relogged them both multiple times and have triple checked that they are both set to 100% AA

    Am i missing something?

    You are possibly killing in a zone that has EXP reduction applied, Pullers bypass this (as a Bug)

    Need to know what zone(s) and if one or the other is primary puller. Also should make sure neither has Fellowship xp sharing on.

    Best guess is you are in a zone that is lowering xp based upon your level ... and the SK is pulling primarily and therefore immune to the lowering.

    I am fighting in Frontier Mountains

    I also test another scenario by grouping with a mage and then having the mage kill while the SK and Zerker sit idle (the SK still got more AA exp)

    Is the mage pulling or the SK? Pullers get more exp for some reason.

    The mage was pulling... the SK and the Zerker just sat there.... and the SK still got 0.46 of an AA vs the 0.35 for the zerker

    Which class has the merc out? In the way you worded the first post your group is a merc, a sk and a zerker.

    The mage was part of the group the whole time I just didn't mention him in the first post because he is level 106 so it was not an apples to apples comparison like the SK and Zerker are.

    The Zerker has the merc (but I also unsummoned the merc and the test results were the same)

    To throw a wrench in the experiment....I had the Zerker solo kill a mob with no help from the mage or SK and in that case the Zerker got almost twice the AA of the SK.

    Do you assign roles to your characters to control mercs? There is usually a thread once a month about the exp disparity in FM and it seems to end in the person that pulls getting the most exp(attacks the mob first). Also idle characters have been known to receive less exp versus someone who attacks.

    I don't assign roles.

    Sounds like this is just a FM thing? Maybe I should test in another zone.

    Comes from eok zones. Just do in sw and you see same

    I am wondering if because the Zerker HAD the merc out, that it set an exp plan that stayed even after the Merc was suspended.
    Wonder if you zoned out and in, things would change % wise.
