I am undecided with respect to Daggertooth. On the one hand, it could easily be brilliant forum shtick. On the other hand, he is so consistent in his viewpoints, it's hard to believe he doesn't actually hold his professed opinions.
So clever troll or bitter anti-social wierdo...dunno yet. Either way, he's entertaining. So kudos.
As an expert on dying and, yes, I can probably die much sooner than most of the people posting in this thread, someone dying should be assumed. That way if nobody dies then you get a bonus instead of a penalty.
This stopic is not longer relevant. PUGs stopped dying in groups ages ago...

Holy necro batman.
There's one person on the first page alone advocating this don't die policy that has personally died in groups with me. While their tone would make you think that they quickly DCd and commenced whipping themselves for their grievous sin, the truth is, they just laughed it off and continued on. This is why the don't die people can't be taken seriously. It's the end of the world until they, themselves die, then it's all fun and games.
If the base experience is 1000... and you get 10% for persistent bonus and 10% for no deaths... do you think you get 1200 exp? Well you don't.
You get 1000 x 1.1 x 1.1 = 1210.
I could go into more detail... but if you have half a brain you can see you are wrong.
So no its not way off.
if a quest base xp is 10000 xp you lose 1,000 (that a 10% bonus) plus any multipliers on that 1,000
It doesn't take a genious to see the effects of losing a multiplier in a series of multipliers
it has compounding effects.

kobold's new ringleader is 1452 base xp on elite
so, if it worked the way you thought it did, the max exp would be
1452*1.8(first elite)*1.2(bravery elite)*1.5(max bravery bonus)*1.5(greater tome)*1.25(conquest)*1.15(ransack)*1.1(flawless victory)*1.1(persistence)= `12274xp.
Now, i've run that quest with all those bonuses plenty of times and never once have i seen that much exp. I can usually get 8-9k with a pot though.
some of the bonuses are additive and some are multiplicative, but they are not all multiplicative.
