    Default XP rewards for patrons only?

    So, turned in a completed artifact this morning and saw this. Apparently we can only obtain XP if we're patron? Does anyone have any idea what the context behind this is?

    Undocumented ******baggery?
    Bugs?

    Could be either right now.
    Burst before or after Rift implosion, never both.

    That is a bug. It's supposed to be just a visual display of the bonuses that Patrons get (old feature just we didn't display it in the UI before).

    Here is a mockup of what it will eventually look like. The numbers are made up. Left side shows what every player gets and right side shows the bonuses that Patrons already get.

    The way it's laid out makes me think that "Patron Bonus" does not apply to the XP/gold but to the empty space below the words. It is laid out confusingly. I'd assume that turning it in as patron will in the future have an additional bonus, until further information becomes available. It could simply be making the flat +40% more visible.


    PS who cropped your image?

    Edit: For the record, I didn't see Gingers' post before I posted, but still guessd right!

    Just logged into a character that can gain XP, we can still gain XP but it shows bonus XP from quests now if you're patron. I'm thinking that's the bonus XP we get with the patron bonus.

    I just added a screenshot to my original post to show you what it will eventually look like. I'm not sure why xp and coins aren't listed on your right "patron" side.

    Can I suggest adding "+" symbols to the Patron side? Took me a second to remember (label notwithsstanding) to read the Patron column as a bonus, not a total.

    Gonna have to agree on this one. The lack of the "+" is kinda misleading on a quick glance.

    Patrons also have a passive buff that grants a 40% increase to:

    Experience
    Favor
    Notoriety
    Prestige
    Tokens (other than Fragments of Darkness)

    As well as a bonus to ALL currency and Tokens by 15%

    Could it possibly list the bonus one will receive based on all boosts, not just patron? I know that might be complicated, but it would be nice to see what say, guild bonus + treasure map + patron + whatever else (that leveling cape that gives you xp boost, running vials, have a silver tier in group w/you, etc) will come out to be.

    We could but honestly that's too much information for such a small UI.

    Definitely a bug! These were just visual changes to inform you on some of what's been going on behind the scenes when turning in quests, the formula on the server remained unchanged. In the rare case there's no bonus for patrons, the right side shouldn't have even shown. I'll look into why you got an incorrect display while we add in the additional items from our mockup.
