The experience rate on Phinigel is currently the slowest of all servers. It isn't however as slow as the experience rate in classic on the live servers when classic was current.
The experience rate will increase when Gates of Discord, Depths of Darkhollow and The Serpent's Spine expansions open on the server.
Ngreth on the forums: “the exp change points are: "Original Everquest","Gates of Discord","Depths of Darkhollow","The Serpent's Spine" Original is the start setting (it needs to be there to set the starting exp setting) And yes, this *is* at Phiny "bumped" level.”
At TSS, slow experience servers become "Normal" Server experience. I.E. the server-wide base multiplier is set to 1.
This is true for all progression servers at this time. (No telling for sure what we will do in the future! What crazy things players want or we decide to do)
Of course, plans can change. But the full "normal" experience is curently what is in the script.

Boxing is allowed, however you can only run 1 Everquest client per computer.
Marketplace items are generally illusions, mounts and certain potions to gain experience quicker, normally fluff items that will not give you an inordinate amount of player power.
Raids on Phinigel are both open world and have their own instances via a NPC named Agent of Change.
In these instances, the max raid size is 72 players per instance. 6 players minimum in order to request those instances. From Lost Dungeons of Norrath and into future expansions, the max number of players per non Agent of Change instances is 54.
Raid lockouts are 2.5 days for requesting a raid instance and each boss killed will give a 6.5 day lockout. For example, Plane of Sky will give a 6.5 day lockout for each island cleared so if you kill a NPC from another island accidentally.....6.5 days.
Those penalties were removed a while ago. However there are bonuses for the race Halflings and bonuses for the Rogue and Warrior class.
The January 2017 patch introduced a new change to how spell research is done on the progression servers.
- Many Spell Research recipes are now restricted to an expansion at least three expansions after the spell itself is available.
This seems to be for most spells. We'll need confirmation on what spells can combine in era and which spells can't.
