    I don't get it. I'm deconstructing items but I don't see any xp gained from it.

    Maybe I'm missing something here.

    I really cannot get excited about this bonus. There is nothing in this game more boring than grinding down items. I would rather grind out another god awful barbarian life than spend a few hours grinding vendor trash. Why not double the drop rate of essences if you want to really promote crafting? I know when the system was being tweaked there were times that I got a ton of essences in just a few quests.

    For a second I got excited, but only on decon?

    So the maximum xp on decon is 5, so that becomes 17 bonus? Well, ok I guess, but even with 100 L5 decons (which of course would be quite a load of high end items) it still brings you up to the equivalent of ONE no bonus construction of something in the 50s or 60% range.

    10 seconds vs an 30-60 min of crunching, um, thanks but it doesn't make me excited.

    Now, give us 100% bonus on crafting AND decon and you will have some happy people.

    What are you deconning?

    Items should always give you 1-5 xp on decon.

    Crafted shards however given you no xp on decon (it used to, but they changed it due to a um...cheesy way to run up to L100 with almost no investment except implementing a bot...err...I mean repeatedly crafting by hand in a certain way)

    Default Bonus not correct

    Few tests and I'm only getting +100%; level 4's give 8xp and 5's give 10. Both the display text and xp added to crafting tab show this.

    Means we are only getting a 200% bonus.
    100% of crafting xp means 1.00. 4 * 1.00 = 4.

    Jerry's wording did not state "and additional" bonus. Which would have meant XP * (1.00 + x%)

    With 250% return we should be seeing...
    1 xp should = 2 xp
    2 xp should = 5 xp
    3 xp should = 7 xp
    4 xp should = 10 xp
    5 xp should = 12 xp.

    Remember, DnD base rules, you round down.

    Whenever Jerry posts a date, always give it an hour or two to settle and see if anything shifts or changes.

    Basic vendor trash, just can't see any feedback on getting XP. Anyways - sounds like a waste of time anyways.

    XP should show above your head. But it can be hard to see why all those huge windows opened.

    By the rules of grammar, he said it was a 250% BONUS. That means that it should be 350% of normal.

    If what he meant was 250% of normal XP, then he should have said that, or 150% bonus.

    Perhaps I need to make my point a little clearer, as we both agree level 4 should give 10xp. I'm getting 8xp for level 4 decon. +100%.

    Think about Turbine grammar, however. They have quite the history.

    Now if we really were supposed to be having 350% returns right now, they really have it fluffed up.
    As has been stated by others, we are only having a 200% return at the moment.
