When does the Surplus timer start?Follow

If this has been covered I apologize I haven't seen a post about it.

Given the new information about 8 hours 100%exp then a decline for another 7 hours reaching finally 0exp, what counts as that time?

Does it count as just being the job? so if I am in a field just sitting there is my time ticking away?

Does it count when in active mode? so if I am in active mode but not attacking a mob does my time ticks away?

Does it count the actual time it takes to fight a mob as your time? So only the time from first to last swing/action is counted?

I don't have access to beta forums so I am not sure if people have found out something there that hasn't spilled over to here yet.

I don't think it's been explained in that much detail yet so it's still fairly confusing and up for speculation. Until the developers expand on it further, we are left to our own interpretations. Sorry if this isn't very helpful but:

No one knows.

The most logical and simple way to program it would be to do it based on exp gained and not time. I would GUESS that they're talking about it in hours because that's a more abstract way to refer to it (how long it'd take you to earn enough exp to go all the way to full fatigue). I could be wrong about that, but I really hope not because if I am that means SE is even dumber than I give them credit for.

From what I've interpreted so far, it's one of the following:

1) It starts... NOW! GOGOGOGO
2) There is no timer. It's actually based on how much EXP you gain.
3) When you enter combat mode. Rapidly tap R after killing that sewer mole ASAP if you want to continue enjoying game.

I thought it was based on exp gain as well, the only problem is people are reporting getting it starting anywhere from levels 12-16. So it seems to have some kind of time component to it.

edit: I am talking about their job level, not physical level
