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

    I don't know whether they did change anything but it does seem worse for me last few weeks. Taking the xp gained visually brings out the conspiracy theory in my head that they did nerf xp change and the visual "improvement " just hides it better for them.
    You totally should have leveled. That is my point something fishy going on.

      Few things everyone should know about stamina.
      1) all classes give the same Xp return. No class is better than another for Xp.

      2) heavy classes have a visual glitch. No matter if you use a multi hit ability on a single target or multiple targets you will get same Xp as any other class. Check it when u get Xp in the Xp bar.

      3) stamina is always a gamble for Xp. You have an Xp range from 1-4 so one time u can get 160 Xp from a 40 Stam hit another time just 40 Xp. Only energy gives a constant return on Xp. (Mostly)

      4) pvp Stam use seems to give a better return on stamina Xp wise due to averages. Unlike in boss battles where u are using max Stam hits to take adv of crit bonus.

        It depends on the size of the hits you were doing. If you were using a Duke and doing 40 Stam hits or 120-160 in total, then you could have had some bad luck and gotten a couple of 1X Stam hits. In a case like this, play the averages and hit smaller hits for more chances at 3X and 4X hits. You are more likely to hit the average over that longer range of hits.

        I too have done the monster hits and gotten bit by the 1X bug when no question there was enough to level. Now I do smaller hits (4 20 40 w/Duke) unless I'm full then I have enough to hit the average.

          Also note that pvp attacks only give 1,2 or 3xp. In theory pvp should avg at 2xp and pve at 2.5xp

          Good job mist, thanks for clearing things up :-)
