    Not really sure what else to say about this one, but posting on forums for those that don't read discord.

    XP pots are literally doing nothing, two people in group, on potted, on not, same xp rewards.

    And as predicted doubling the horrible xp 25-65, is still really bad xp.

    No surprise there, DBG is just as bad at getting things right as Sony ever was.

    XP potions are working the same as they have worked for the past 10 years, it just isn't a significant amount compared to the current content bonus in Kunark zones on TLE. Additive XP bonuses do not multiply the end result of the previous amount, they multiple the base, so if you are getting 30 xp from a kill on the base, an experience potion grants you 30 more xp. If you are also getting 30 xp from a server bonus, 60 from vitality and 120 from the current content bonus, that extra 30 isn't a noticeable amount.

    We're taking a look at whether or not we want to change how they work, but they are not currently bugged in any way.

    They aren't bugged, you just have a bit of an issue selling a 100% increase item in your cash shop that increases 14% though.

    I mean its been obvious the maths on XP bonuses have always been hard to decrypt, but how that math is working isn't terribly truthful in advertising.

    It's true that the extremely low base amount on this TLE server is what really illustrated how off the math was. Probably wouldn't have been noticed on any other server.

    I don't think you have a single player not complaining about your current system in older zones xp rates, is there any chance we can get that looked at, why is it faster to level 70-80 than it is 50-60, or 60-70. Shouldn't it be easier to level at lower levels?

    Are we going to be double screwed once TSO comes out and all we have is moors? That eliminates any xp bonuses from level 1-50 completely.

    You receive 100% increase of the base experience. That is how additive math works.
