    This would be nice, crafting has been stagnant for over a year.

    Give us a reason to want crafting XP bonus...

    Default my patience has paid off

    I cannot remember the last time there was a crafting bonus weekend. 2012 maybe?

    I have been hoarding essences and I am finally going to be paid off. I had almost succumbed to the thought that there would never be another crafting bonus weekend, but I am going to be paid off for waiting.

    Looks like my weekend is going to involve crafting out the wazoo on all eight servers.

    I realize I am probably one of the twenty people that are excited about this.

    I give in, use my saved points to buy shards and push my current tr further in levels since at level groups are dead at my time... 2 days later, double exp from rolls. Really?! This happened last time too. -.-

    Could you start publishing your planned activities so I can then plan for the next upcoming sale/bonus? Thanks in advance.

    nice thought
    Someone got it wrong. Everyone expected the Spanish Inquisition because they were required to give 30 days notice, by law.
    I can be found on Orien. My more active toons are Cilon, Solstone in Your Pack, and sometimes Acroyer.

    Unless the bonus is being figured onto the displayed XP amount for shard crafting (like the Daily Dice interface does), the crafting XP bonus is not applying.

    Yep I noticed this too=( Haven't logged on in months, but this crafting bonus brought me back, unfortunately, it is not actually being applied, unless it is on the displayed XP -- which I find unlikely but would love to know for sure.
    Yes, I really did like the old red tent. And its music.

    I was looking a back and realized that in the past the bonus was to deconstruction xp because there was some issue with having it apply to shard creation xp. Maybe they thought they had finally solved that issue but actually....

    I hope the rumors you all are saying that the 30% is not being applied is false. I was wondering and I guess I will verify on Monday.

    So far, I have gotten three characters from level 30, level 39, and level 39 to level 98. One character on Wayfinder to level 28, I don't play very much on Wayfinder so I ran out of essences. I didn't even have any favor on my crafter so I could purchase Free Agent stuff.

    The grind is not as bad as I remember, but it is still a grind.

    Some time ago, they did make crafting easier, IIRC they lowered the amount of essences needed in recipes so this could be what you are experiencing.

    Default Crafting XP Elixirs do nothing during this bonus days

    On Argonesson, I drank a Minor Crafting XP Elixir that lasts 30 minutes and is supposed to add 10% to the crafting XP.

    It is a lie.

    No XP added on bound crafting or on unbound crcafting device.

    Since I am not deconstructing anything other than shards, I do not know if it works on an item that gives me 1 XP when I deconstruct a level I item, because that would be just 1.1 XP and we all know that Turbine rounds down.

    I noticed this too, greater crafting exp. potion did not stack or XP bonus did not work because I leveled just as much levels/life as usual (6-7).
    With stacking XP (105%) I could level my character in 100+ but sitting on 85.

    Sorry Smithy-Alliance, my Wayfinder character left on lvl 67


    ps.: I checked, deconstructing items did not give extra XP.

    Default I think the 30% was being applied

    Crafting bonus just went down or off at 10:11 AM EST it seems.

    My XP bonus was 780 and then was at 585. But, that could have been because I was leveling up in the school. I thought I was smart by having a percentage that I could not achieve on the screen but I forgot I was leveling in that crafting school.

    Words of advice, never open your green bag during a purchase of crude vials. It loads at 25 each and then redraws the bag each time. If you are buying 2500 crude vials, that is 100 redraws.

    Other words of advice, you can buy crude vials in stacks of 2500, but they still show up as two stacks of 1000 and one stack of 500 in your inventory, but at least purchasing them is faster.

    Since drinking potions was not functioning/stacking during the event I will drink crafting XP potions tomorrow and see if it works.

    Default A compliment to the developer

    Whoever improved the speed of the deconstruction and crafting, thank you.

    I remember it taking basically 30 seconds per item, which was fine if you were doing one item.

    Thank you for improving that aspect of Cannith Crafting.
