- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Stamina - 1x, 2x, 3x or 4x - What are the Odds?

    One would assume that the XP multiplier when attacking bosses would be 25% chance at any one. After 8 months of playing, I questioned this philosophy just based on experience.

    So I busted out a pen and paper and tracked the last 300x 40 stamina hits I consider this a small test and did this obly using 40stam hits without Duke.

    Here ya go judge for yourself:

    1x 136 (45%)
    2x 72 (24%)
    3x 60 (20%)
    4x 32 (10.5%)


    I now feel energy is a much better investment with the return of not only SP but LTs from energy quests. I urge others to do some tracking while power leveling and see if its close to mine. Post them here if you do.

      Troll much archaic you already knew this as a castle age player... Energy = savings account, stamina = stock market...

      Energy = little risk, little reward (guaranteed 1:1 ratio)
      Stamina = big risk, big reward...
      (1:0.5-1.:2 ratio)


      Please stop trying to incite drama.. If you got something that's legit and not an obvious troll by all means share otherwise give up..


      There's not set percent that you're going to get 2x exp... I went 100 hits straight getting max xp on bosses...

          You can time it, even if you want to deny it there's still patterns that you'll often come across. Also I don't think these statistics would be accurate until you used about 1,000 stam, that's when you'll start to see the proper statistics.

            The community is unaware of this. It is for them.

            Also stamina I always thought was just a 1 in 4 shot but now I think otherwise.

              I also did some personal tracking, and I've noticed a lot less 4xp/hit and a lot more 1xp/hit.
              About 2-3 months ago, the chance seemed more like 20%-20%-30%-30%, which gave me around 2.7xp/stam.
              But now I am also noticing a distribution close to 40%-30%-20%-10%, which is 2xp/stam.
              Maybe it's a coincidence, but I feel that perhaps the distribution shifts as you become higher in level?
              My leveling has been significantly slower last month or so because of this :X

                  For the record I've been using a pattern for about the past two months and it has been working pretty well. Not going to go into details about it though

                    I use the 1 and 5 Stam on bosses with Duke. It results in a 4-20 Stam hit. With my approximate 600 Stam, I can level up in about 2 1/2 refills counting the full recharge on leveling on a near 500 account. Energy is around 550 and I'm in HK right now. I find that the small hits on average work better for points long term. I did a couple of levels with big hits on a Speedkill and it took 4 refills to level.

                    I consider each refill to cost $1.25 on the $99.99 refill, so the savings does add up. I know that the 1 would result in the best value but the time is far too long.

                      More often than not, I got 3-4 XP per hit when I'm overflow on stam before level up. Similarly, mostly 1xp per hit when you really need that few extra (say near 100 xp) to level up and end up had to wait or sk someone to tap u.
                      May be it just me lol

                        Oh and mods should change the threat title it's misleading max stamina xp return is 2x...

                        Remember stamina costs 2 stat points.. So returns are actually

                        1:0.5
                        1:1
                        1:1.5
                        1:2

                        And archaic while the rest of the community may be unaware you're cause panic, hysteria, drama etc when this could very easily have been shared in such a way that does not cause that..

                        If you truly have turned over a new leaf and want to help the community then do so by changing how you word posts and reviewing them. (As much as I hate your guts and believe you will never stop trolling or cheating) I'm willing to look past that crap and give you a chance but posts like this are not doing "your cause" justice

                            I questioned the distribution months ago, but at that time somebody used "common sense" and dismissed me. TY Arch for doing the actual statistics! 👍

                              Apparently its like playing the slots. And these slots are tight as Hell! lol

                              They were decent slots to play cause I would always play 5 stam and I would get about 20 xp in return for maybe 4 times in a row after 5 hits and now I get 20 xp maybe once or twice every 10 to12 hits.

                              I was thinking thay might've been tighten up by the elimination of the glitches "cheat windows" they closed.

                              But what do I know, not much I tell ya! lmao
