    Default Maximizing Ottos ?

    Hey Kobold Union, how are things in Waterworks these days? (that wasn't me)

    So... I got my 1st Heroic Otto's Box and I want to be sure I get the most from it:

    2,000,000 Base XP stone

    +50% from Sovereign II XP potion = + 1,000,000 xp
    +20% from Greater Tome Learning = + 400,000 xp
    +5% from Voice of the Master = + 100,000 xp
    = + 1,500,000 bonus xp

    total = 3.5 mil xp

    Does that all stack? Am I leaving anything out? My math checks out?

    I am VIP but I don't think that factors in. And I'm not planning on waiting for a XP bonus day unless it's coming up soon.

    Thanks
    Fen

    There's also XP boost from ship buffs.

    Someone else will have to say which/what stacks, but folks always mention ship buffs in these kinds of threads.

    Do tomes of learning work?
    10% VIP bonus applies.

    I am pretty sure tomes of learning does not apply. I remember taking a xp 50% pot, having 5% from guild and 5% from voice of the master augment thing and getting to something like level 18.

    This corresponds well to 1.6*2 mill = 3.2 mill = level 18 rank 1 on a third life char.

    Don't hang me up on this as we say in denmark

    Tome of Learning does not apply, because it's not quest XP. (Tome of Learning doesn't apply to Monster Manual XP or slayers, either, although it does work on challenges.) Only pot, guild ship, 5% item, and VIP apply. Global quest XP boosts from DDO bonus days don't work either.

    Basically if you have all the boosties active you will get 3.39M xp IIRC.

    Ship bonus XP works.
    Voice of the Master or the related augment +5% works.
    VIP bonus XP works.
    VIP bonus XP weekends stack as well.

    Other Bonus XP weekends don't work. Heroic/Epic/Reaper/whatever-non-VIP weekend bonus XP does not work with Otto's Box.
    Tome of Learning (lesser/greater/epic/whatever) don't add anything. Take that number out of the calculation.

    Some of that is right, some of it is wrong.

    Here's what actually works (stacks):

    2,000,000 Base XP stone

    +50% from Sovereign XP Potion = +1,000,000 xp
    +10% from VIP membership = +200,000 xp
    +5% from Voice of the Master (or similar item) = +100,000 xp
    +5% from Guild Ship's Experience Shrine = +100,000 xp
    +10% from VIP Weekend = +200,000 xp
    = +1,600,000 bonus xp

    Total = 3.6 Million XP


    If I'd ever use an Otto's stone of EXP (of ANY sort), I'd ALWAYS wait until the VIP Weekend.
