    Default DDO Bonus Days - The Shadowfell Conspiracy Approaches!

    DDO Bonus Days brings you +30% Heroic and Epic XP, now through August 18th!


    P.S. - This stacks with all XP potions and other sources of XP bonus.

    P.S.S. - Wayfinder continues to have +10% Heroic and Epic XP in addition to the +30% bonus, which means Wayfinder has +40% through the 18th!
    Have fun, and don't forget to gather for buffs!

    This isn't a reasonable bonus. To make it fair it must be at least a 5000% XP bonus! Please fix your promotion immediately!







    Oh, and thanks for the 30%, I think I may log in this week because of it lol

    Wow, thank you.

    People have been telling me it would be a 30% bonus weekend since Tuesday and I would love to know how they get the early info.

    Thanks much!

    The community update video via youtube and posted to Facebook and other social media. Cordovan mentioned that it was coming in that video.

    Actually the way it seems to work is that each source of additional XP is done by a separate multiplication, instead of adding them all up and then multiplying. So 1.1 * 1.3 = 1.43, for a 43% bonus on Wayfinder through the 18th.

    Depends on how it is set up on Wayfinder. I suspect they just have a global xp boost variable that is set to 10% on Wayfinder and left that way while it is normally set to 0% on the other servers, if they have temporarily changed that to 40% on Wayfinder and 30% on the other servers then Cordovan is correct.

    I stand corrected. I didn't consider they might use the same mechanic for the Wayfinder server boost. Well at least my pots, guild airship shrine and Voice/Mantel will still work in this fashion. I'll try to remember to pop over to an alt on Wayfinder and test how it does work. If I do, I'll post it here.

    ...and so it came to pass that he who could pull the dwarf from the stone would become the ruler of all the Storm Horns...

    To this day, people still come and try, but always they leave disappointed.

    I was thinking, "Dragnar the Dwarf earns his extra +30% the easy way...."

    Aw, I would <3 to join in the fun, but Boolean Logic, Search Algorithms, and Sort Algorithms are epic mini-bosses that I must first vanquish. *sigh*

    Happy for everyone else, though.
