Get +25% Epic XP now through November 25th!
Why does it seem that there is usually some sort of "bonus" while there is an event going on? In this case, during the 2nd run of Mabar, which, considering the issues with the first run, there may be many people grinding out motes to finish items?
It makes no sense.

You have people complaining when a bonus is not narrow enough (it is given when another event is happening) and another person complaining the bonus is too narrow (there needs to be more than one happening at the same time).
Each of these bonuses dilutes my player pool since I don't like Mabar nor doing Epic XP, but even I recognize that it is just a bonus that may not apply to my play style.
... you just can't have nice things.
Heroic people that like Mabar: play Mabar.
Heroic people that hate Mabar: play as usual, sorry no bonus for you right now.
Epic people that like Mabar: play Mabar.
Epic people that hate Mabar: get XP.
Epic people that like Mabar and want XP: Sorry, pick one, or split your time. However, I'd say clearly it is in your best interest to take advantage of the seasonal event while it's here (if you need stuff from it).
Or people could just accept that it is a bonus and deal with it...
Hilarious Princess....Sorry your life is so medicore after all this time..Lol, you are scared of a farmer? with a tractor....?
While I appreciate the bonus days, is there any reason why you guys keep splitting the epic and heroic xp bonuses, so we can only get one or the other? Personally, this particular bonus at this particular time is more disheartening than anything because the character I have that could actually make use of it TR'ed a few days ago and won't be in epic range again for a few weeks at least. It would be like splitting the challenge ingredient bonuses so that one time you get bonuses on cannith challenges, and the next you gain bonuses on eveningstar. I mean, if there is an actual reason for this somewhere, like coding limitations of something, that is one thing, but as far as I can tell, the heroic/epic xp split seems purely arbitrary and is quite frustrating.
I love xp bonus, but I echo the voice of a few others, any possibly in heroic + epic xp?
Thanks for the bonus!
I don't think anyone has an issue with the *free stuff*, it's just an issue with it's timing. You essentially have two seperate specifically unlinked timed "events" in play simultaneously.
1. Mabar [which should only be once a year]
2. +25% Epic XP [not as often as we'd like and it seems not as often as Heroic XP since they've been seperate]
For most of us it is a choice. If you're dead set on your Mabar Gear you'll have a chance to complete it now. If you don't care for Mabar and prefer to grind out another Epic Destiny then this bonus is for you.
Thank you Turbine for giving something for everyone*.

You guys are missing the point of these bonuses.
TR-junkies are always TR'ing, regardless of bonus or no-bonus. They hide in lowbie land forever. There's no reason for Turbine to give these people a bonus because they're rescuing Arlos regardless.
End game grinders are after the shiniest shinies. They don't need an epic XP bonus to chase the carrot because the carrot is always the central goal. TR'ing is just painful detour (at best) and every second away from running high level content is torture.
You give bonuses of one type to get people playing more of the content they tend to avoid unless given a good reason...encourage them to get out of their comfort zones (read:traps). Sure, it probably doesn't work for everyone but if you get 10% to swap to the other side for a while, that's 10% of your player base that is going to delay exhausting their fun here for another week.

I think many will tremendously like both things going on at the same time. If you don't like Mabar (or anther event) and you're not a friend of doing all solo playing, you're in a bad spot. Give a bonus to split up the playerbase more and you have a smaller bored group. Don't complain about having to choose between two good things. If you want Mabar stuff, play it. XP bonus just shortens the time but doesn't give you anything you can't get at other times.
BTW having it epic only with all its downsides has a huge benefit: players with mainly lvl 20+ character have less fun in Mabar then those with lower level characters. Server issues aside, many clients and humans will crumble to the onslaught of shiny spells and special moves. Something like graphical overload does exist.
