Experience penalties

Rating: +0

Positive Negative

At one time, there were experienced bonuses and penalties for every class/race, or so it seemed. Most of the penalties have been removed, but the bonuses remain.

Bonuses: halflings get a bonus of around 5%; legend has it that this bonus was supposed to have been given to humans, but was given to halflings by mistake. Rogues and warriors get a bonus, which might be around 10%.

Bonuses (and penalties) only apply to level experience from mob kills, not to AA experience.

The old racial penalties still apply to quest experience. This will affect iksars, trolls, ogres and barbarians. Most of the time this won't matter, but may be a factor for those doing the daily quests from SoF (Fenden Helter in Dragonscale Hills), or doing quests in SoD.
