In short you get bonus xp when all the following conditions are met:
-it's your first time doing the quest
-you do quest on hard or elite
-everyone in the group is at or lower than base quest level+2

What this means is that if you put a LFM for an harbor quest on elite (generally L2 quest) having a single L5 in the party can mean losing up to 70% xp bonus...

What Barhai is referring to is the loss of the bravery bonus xp. If the quest on elite is level 5 and a level 5 and lower group enters, you gain a bravery streak for completing it at and below level. As soon as a level 6 steps in, even for just a second; you lose that bonus, but no other xp penalties.

Although you do indeed lose an additional 10% xp if someone is 2 levels above the elite level.
