Well, the double exp weekend has turned into a PR nightmare for EQ. Here it is approaching 10 hours past scheduled turn on time and still no DE, plus Bert server has been enduring a dozen crashes since yesterday. Seems like EQ didnt leave a note for the janitor on how to do things this weekend

On FV the double XP started about an hour early. I have heard about the bertox problems though and that really does suck during double XP. Hopefully they extend it for you guys.
time warp?

in responce to Rickymaru a message would be cool, or a buff icon in the song window (so you dont reach buff limits if you dont have the AAs for it) would be nice as well

Also, anyone know if it stacks with other experience boosters, such as lesson and potions?

LotD counts as a potion, so you couldn't add a potion on top of that.
Dont use Potion and LOTD they dont stack its just the highest % value used if both are active.


If you have a 50% potion, it would work like this:

Normal XP = 100%
Bonus XP = 100% (bonus from the XP weekend, assuming it's double)
Potion XP = 50%
=============
Total = 250% XP

If you have LotD:

Normal XP = 100%
Bonus XP = 100% (bonus from the XP weekend, assuming it's double)
LotD XP = 100%
============
Total = 300% XP

In other words, they do stack, but they are addative, not multiplicatve (it's not 100% XP plus 100% LotD = 200% then that number doubled.)

LotD counts as a potion, so you couldn't add a potion on top of that.

Are we going to have the usual bs in game about how the exp bonus isn't turned on when its suppose to be turned on? People asking every 10 mins in general chat. You would think they could put up a simple message the moment the bonus goes into play. You are now experiencing a server wide double exp bonus. Then when it ends. You are no longer experiencing a server wide double exp bonus. Could even add a timer to let people know how much time they have left before the bonus ends.

I could be mistaken as well but i thought originally the exp bonus was just about a 24 hour thing. The 1st minute of the last day of the year up until the last minute of the last day of the year. Oh well. More time is better.
