    This is interesting. There were dispelling casters in the quests I ran before my xp buff was gone. So this is very possible.

    EDIT: Just did the same test. Yes, xp bufft gets removed by at least beholder dispel beam.

    It's definitely an N-word.

    Yep, this was doing this for me as well (though only 1:20, guess you've got a better guild than me lol) Suspect something similar going on.

    I've had trouble personally reproducing this. The buff I'm seeing on my live character is lasting much longer than 90 minutes (depends on your guild level) and pausing in public spaces.

    Perhaps you are actually getting the older XP buff? Note that if you take both the old 5% XP buff and have a new XP buff that's lower than 5%, the new one will be suppressed while the old one lasts, since the new one is a lower number with the same bonus type (like any other buff).
    The exp buff I am getting is from a staterooms combo buffs. The collegium of the twelve does a 5% boost. Is this one limited in duration?

    Default XP Buff is a standalone

    That cannot be true. There is no stateroom that gives XP buff in a combo. The Collegium of the Twelve gives things like 5% fort bypass (maybe that is what you mistakenly saw) and bonuses to saves vs. enchantment, spell pen, SP, spellpower. The XP buff is a seperate, upgradeable smaller amenitie

    this could be a good thing devs find the code that is linking some old buffs to bar, and put it in all old buffs and it wiil be profitable long term possibly, especially with lower lvl guilds who can get twice as many old buffs than they can new buffs, i had noticed this on lama land and was unsure if it was wai or not cuz the hype was no more rental contracts and a one button buff, it was never really strait up said till much later that the old buffs were not on buff button and might even go away, and my lama land ship had the new xp shrine at that point so i had forgotten all about it till i seen this post, and any way why get rid of them instead of incorparetw them new buffs are basically old guild augs any way! and we can still get guild augs that dont stack with new buffs but do with many old buffs pre u22, or even pre u17 when guild slot items stopped dropping and every one had those items ( those items where my original reason for joining a guild, so i could use the cool stuffs i found) i mean i have seen it asked but what do you intend to do with cargo hold once you stop selling old rental buffs any way?

    When U22 first dropped, on our ship (BEFORE we had ANY buffs populated and BEFORE the legacy buffs had come back), we'd get a Training Dummy and a 5% xp shrine buff that would last for 1:30 by clicking the amenity bar. As far as I know this still happens--I haven't looked super closely. But I can confirm that there is some screwiness going on here if I could get buffs from a ship that HAD NO BUFFS ON IT.

    I have the old five percent and a new 3 percent. Clicking the buff bar gives me the five percent for 1"30. When it goes away, it's replaced with the normal 3 percent that is on the same timer and acts like the other buffs.

    Personally, I like this bug.

    More evidence along these lines. In VoN3 my ship XP buff was dispelled at the end, either by the last beholder or the marut's dispel attack. I believe it was actually the marut that did it (used PLIS for the beholder) but looking back I can't say I was 100% certain I checked the XP buff after killing the beholder.

    Confirmed. A bit of testing with dispel magic scrolls also indicates that it is considered approximately a caster level 10 effect (20 fails, 23 succeeds). So it gets dispelled quite easily by even low level caster mobs.
