Does experience from an experia plants count towards EXP bonus?

what ? this is so vague, how does this works ?

only mobs ?
quests ?
experia ?
purses and gathering, also does it stack with pots ?? do we get the extra exp directly or via mail like other rewards ?

Hi,

Could we get, let's say, at least 3 days before, a warning for those events ?

I would have planned my week-end a bit differently if I had the info...

Opening Purses is not gathering neither crafting...
You want to get extra exp via mail? Ya made me laugh soooo loud :)
Common sense mate...

Are you re(t)arded? Do you see word quest in event description?

Killing monster so exp just for killing boss not double exp for the quest to kill it...

This is an event I can definitely get behind. Thank you for hosting it (finally :)).

Feedback about creating another alt account for tax relief.

1.) I shouldn't have to have an alternate acct to obtain tax relief, let me pay for some type of service or package on my main that lets me keep all of my property together but receive a bonus as if I had two accts. Like seriously even a double sub on the same acct is something I would do to avoid having to log in and out and that ridiculously long start up process in between. PLEASE CONSIDER CONSOLIDATION OPTIONS. I don't like having two, three, four accts.

2.) Creating a new character (or 2 in my case) is incredibly annoying (if you already have one). The new player tutorial ran each time (3) I created a new character, not just the first as stated on the Tutorial. Dear gawd for the sake of everything holy - fix this pls. Its cool the first time, but every single time is just unforgivable.

Aside from it running when it wasn't supposed to, I do like the new tutorial and it gives an interesting overview of the game. I did find that some of the actions mentioned were different with in game defaults (like accepting quests - thats G not F by default, proceeding to the next set of dialog is F).

K - thats it for now. Thx again for the event.

TBH, I think this sucks. It takes forever to get from 50 to 55, so the one chance where you could at least get double xp for the Auroria dailies is denied. Whoopie, I get 4400 per kill in stead of 2200, how about 80000 for the quest in stead of 40000? I mean it not like you need 2 million xp per level or anything. Totally assed up, should have expected it, tbh.

OK, I can't strikethrough the text, but I withdraw this. See my new comment below

Holy ♥♥♥♥, are some of you guys serious? What is it with MMORPG gamers having the biggest, self-important, safety-mittens ego? It's a FREE EVENT.

Inb4 "just because it's free doesn't mean I can't complain!" I'm not saying anybody doesn't have a right to complain. I'm just saying you look like a ♥♥♥♥♥y, whiny child when doing it.

Thanks for the event Trion, my little brother whose busy grinding appreciates it and passes his thanks to you all for this one =)

I'm sure if I was grinding a new toon this would be the shiznit, but for someone trying to top off a 50+, which is takes longer than getting to 50 by a long shot already, this event is pointless altogether. I ran up a blighter from 1-50 in less than a week, I've been grinding my infiltrator from 50 for three weeks and have managed to get all the way up to 52 1/2...

and god forbid you get killed and lose literally a day's worth of grinding after you visit Nui and get your partial lost xp back. High end game needs some tlc, period.

EDIT: After doing the Sungold dailies I see that they actually are giving double xp for the quest as well. So, sorry about the rant, but it would have been nice if this were made more clear in the announcement.

On the other hand... I stand by my proclamation that grinding after 50 sucks ♥♥♥ and really needs to be adjusted.

We all know why the Double XP is going on, its a way for Celestrata the new CM to get leveled up on different servers. :)

During events like this, can there be some kind of benefit to those of us who've been professionals and leveled all our classes to 55 already? Maybe 2x proficiency progression or passive higher loot drop %-- not sure what would be appropriate exactly.

That being said, none of that would have actually helped this weekend with Aranzeb being down. :/

That's because celestrata is still learning her job.
