    What time does Double XP start? Looking forward to some Christmas grinding...also how about an EQ stimulus payment of 1 krono for all players? :p

    How come the Xmas/holiday bonus hasn't been applied yet?

    Because of the Mandela Effect.

    There has been no anoucement that there is going to be bonus xp. Maybe they are not doing it this year.

    Was there a xmas xp bonus last year? Not finding it in announcements forum.

    Use EQ Resource events and look at their calendar from past years to determine the most likely time and what bonuses will be happening:

    We pretty much always get an after Xmas to New Years bonus week-ish. Usually bonus xp with a marketplace sale of some type (although last year, we got bonus rares instead).

    And it's never double xp ... the only double xp is Labor Day. Everything else is 50% (except July 4th which is usually 76%).

    There was no Xmas XP bonus in 2019 as far as I can find in th 2019 announcements. I am expecting a discount in the DB store, and a +50 rares bonus sometime in the next week.

    Sadly, it's stilled tied up in committee. But don't worry, the bribery committee is busily working on highly remunerative, err lucrative, darn...what's that word? Oh, persuasive arguments to get the bonuses flowing. It will be soon with those least in need getting them first.

    We dwarves would like to thank all of you for being patient while we hoard our wealth.

    Has Jenn Chan decided to suck the life out of the holidays now as well? No bonus of any kind? According to several web-sites ESO has a bonus, WoW has one, BDO has, and FF14 has one. EQ not so much yet. Maybe she has another 18 hour launch planned for us or an 8 hour emergency maintenance! She's been very generous with those kind of events. Well . . . Happy Flipping Holidays!

    If there’s a holiday XP bonus, it’s usually at New Years. Christmas is still close to the expansion launch, and the XP bonus in the run up to the expansion.

    What is "Xmas?"

    Instead of bonus XP, they decreased the number of new AA to even it out.
