    Really? *** is wrong with the marketing team over there Cordovan? For years we've been telling you all to NOT do this kind of thing when you drop a new update over on lamma land. You want / need us to go over there and test things out, give you feedback, etc (basically do the QA's job since they obviously have some serious issues with competency) and yet you almost ALWAYS drop a bonus XP type event over on live at the exact same time.

    In case the staff have yet to talk to each other and make the connection, I'll put this in really easy to understand terms: this is COUNTER PRODUCTIVE.

    Is that bonus to all sources of heroic xp or just to the base of quest xp? The wording indicate the former but I assume the latter. Most noteably does it apply to saga and xp stone xp?

    Default IS it truly turned on?

    IS it truly turned on?

    I just used a 2 million xp stone from box. By everything I counted I should have gotten 3,900,000 xp but onyly got 3,400,000.

    Breakdown for me:

    2,000,000
    1,000,000 Soverign pot
    500,000 +25% weekend
    200,000 vip
    100,000 Master gift
    100,000 Ship 5% shrine

    I had all these active when i used and it seems the only thing I did not get was the +25% fir this weekend.

    Was trying to not run a bard life.

    For once I timed it just right. Unfortunately my timing was meant for Lammania as I just IR'd into a paladin last night.
    Gary Gygax quotes

    The essence of a role-playing game is that it is a group, cooperative experience.

    There is no winning or losing, but rather the value is in the experience of imagining yourself as a character in whatever genre you are involved in, whether its a fantasy game, the Wild West, secret agents or whatever else. You get to sort of vicariously experience those things.

    Role-playing isn't storytelling. If the dungeon master is directing it, its not a game.

    When AI approximates Machine Intelligence, than many online and computer run RPGs will move toward actual RPG activity. Nonetheless, that will not replace the experience of "being there" anymore than seeing a theatrical motion picture can replace the stage play.

    The secret we should never let the game masters know is that they don't need any rules.

    As I said last week, there will always be someone for whom any particular bonus week is a great inconvenience.

    Relax and wait for the next wave to roll in.

    If you can find the post I would aprreciate it. I know it did in the past and had I known it no longer did I would not have used it till I had 700-800k xp.

    Loosely translated means, "I don't know if that was supposed to work that way or not. I have filed it for someone else to look at."

    Weekend bonuses have never affected xp stones.

    I thought it had applied once before. I could be wrong. The information given when the box is released does say "The XP grant can be increased by using Experience Elixirs or acquiring other XP-boosting effects before using the stone." So it sounds like it should, but again I could be wrong.

    That information gathered at https://www.ddo.com/en/ottosbox

    I did a quick search and every post I could find since the boxes were introduced said weekend bonuses don't apply.

    Ok thank you. I think they need to add that to the description next time they go on sell. To me the XP weekend are an aquired limited time boost. I also did some checking but could not find any where a Dev confirmed nor denied it, though I do now believe it does not work and is intended that way. Oh well Bards are fun but the past life is not very useful which is why I just wanted to skip it and go to my Sorc life

    Thank You for the research you did as well.

    Just an update: It was confirmed to me in a private message with these exact words "Yes, XP weekends do not apply to Stones of Experience. "
