    Default Arena Challenge XP Repeat Penalty

    Do they challenges have a repeat penalty for XP?

    While running them, after a couple runs I no longer received the 1 Star XP. So if I had a 2 star run I only received tue 6k XP for the 2nd atar, but not the 5k for the first star.

    Is this how the challenges work?

    I'm not quite sure if I understand...each time you attain a star level for the first time, there is an inherent 'first time' bonus included in the xp reward, like for any quest. So if you consistently 3-star something, the first time you will get a 'first time' boost to each star of xp...but then after that the xp for the quest (1-star) and the 2 and 3 stars goes back to 'normal'. If at some point you were to go and hit 4 stars, and then 5 stars, the 4-star and 5-star xp would have a 'first time' bonus included in them, while the 1-3 star xp will still be 'normal'.

    Other than only getting 'first time' bonuses once for each star level, there is otherwise no xp repeat penalty in challenges.

    This has nothing to do with first time bonus.

    The 1st star you earn is supposed to be worth about 5k.
    The 2nd Star is an additional 6k.

    So, if you 2 Star the challenge you should get about 11k per run.

    Correct?

    And continuously getting 2 Stars should always reward the same 11k?

    After several runs, I received 6k for a 2 Star run. IE, I didn't get the XP for the 1st star.

    Correct?
    Which challenge are you running? I don't know of any that give anywhere near that much XP anymore.
