I hope we get to keep the triple rested xp kill multiplier, which is currently operating over the christmas period. Normally we will kill a mob for 400xp and get an extra 400xp from the rested xp bonus pool, however during christmas we are getting 800xp from that very same pool. I don’t so much mind losing the accelerated rested xp we are also getting, though retaining both would be big bonus. But the 3 X multiplier is really handy, it just allows me to clear down that rested xp so much more efficiently. I know that I have read on at least one other blog, that it’s possibly a trial that may be rolled into the standard game play model. Of all the recent changes, this could well be one with the greatest feel good factor. The problem is, these kinds of changes are quickly absorbed and then forgotten.
Now this is a change of opinion on my part. Initially I thought it should stay as a christmas only bonus, but it has proven to be such a boon to my leveling. As I said, it’s a purely selfish point of view.
There has been an additional knock on effect. I’m currently making sure Skar is always resting in Sigmars Hammer in Altdorf. I have been told that the guild room, just above flight master in Sigmars Hammer gives triple the normal rested xp rate gain. I haven’t tested it, so don’t take my word for it.
