    why do you do things like this during events....

    It splits players away from the event to do levelling XP instead of encouraging them to come together for the event..

    yeah yeah someone will say you get first time bonus xp in each quest of the event.. but still...

    an ingredient bonus drop would be more event friendly..

    You're operating under the mistaken assumption that they apply a level of logic and reasoning to their bonus day bonuses beyond the equivalent of throwing a dart at a board or a spin-the-wheel.

    If you have doubts about that, just consider all the cosmetic sales they did while the in-game store browser and cosmetic preview functionality was disabled/broken.

    Just adjust your expectations and you will no longer be upset.

    Seeing as we are both argo players, we don't have night revels atm. so this is a nice weekend bonus!

    Does this apply to Raid groups as well? So +110% xp for 11 other people in the group? I somehow think it caps at +50% but figured I'd ask for science.

    Sorry, this particular weekend's bonus applies to parties, not raid groups.

    Maybe it applies to the Night Revels challenges, too?

    What I still want to know is, if you run a raid as a party (6 or fewer people, and not converted to a raid group), do you get the bonus? Or does "raid dungeon" override "non-raid group"?

    I agree. I am intentionally holding my main characters at the best level to run Night Revels and this bonus actually causes problems right now. I can only bank so much experience. Now I am losing experience two different ways. Just ugg.

    Edit: I do not wish to sound unkind. In my opinion, the last few months featured a really excellent selection of Weekend Bonus Perks and Events. This one Weekend Bonus Perk just came at an unfortunate time.

    Why do you care so much about daily dice XP?
    It's an extra couple of hundred XP, far less than running a quest or even finding an explorer location.
