Wait i dont understand... How is getting more a bad thing?
no, they just called it bonus so people woulden't complain LOL. I think the bonus is like a % of the main, you don't actually get it. Maybe it will be worth something in the future. But theres no way to check how much you have. Its basically a surplus exp. But they rank it now i guess, like at rank 1 you only get a bit of surplus exp, at rank 2 you get more, etc. So im guessing if you werent under the bonus system that 10 or 20 bonus would go to your class level.
Maybe I'm missing something, but after reading this 4 times I still don't understand WTF he's saying. Edited, Sep 8th 2010 11:10am by RattyBatty
Me either :/
The kids, they listen to the rap music, and it gives them the brain damage.
This is why using proper grammar and spelling and generally not sounding like an 11 year old special ed. student goes a long way on a forum.
it was like 4am and i haven't slept in days. And it makes sense..... if you read it carefully and know what surplus exp is. But here is a translation of my horrible morning grammar (btw i'm 22 and a university grad, not a kid)
It seems that:
1. they changed the name of surplus skill to "bonus skill"
2. bonus skill comes in "ranks". So you start at rank 1, eventually get to rank 2, than rank 3, etc.
3. At rank one, a percentage of your normal axe skill gets converted to bonus skill and you lose it. For example if you normally get 100axe skill you might get 90 axe skill and 10 bonus. However, I believe that if it says you got 30 axe skill 3 times, it will show you as getting 90 axe skill and 10 bonus (meaning that those 10 bonus were lost when each axe skill was displayed. ex. you should have got 33ish axe skill each time instead of 30. Or meaning that you are actually getting a bonus.)
I Might be wrong about that and it might just take 10 axe skill off the 100 (ex. you got 30, 30, and 40 axe skills during the fight and at the end it shows 90 + 10 bonus instead of 100)
4. As your bonus rank increases (ex. marauder bonus skill rank 2), you get more bonus skill points each kill relative to the amount of normal skill points you got.
This is what it seems like at least.
edit for the guy who quoted little parts:
The bonus is a % of the normal skill your supposed to get. So if your supposed to get 100 skill the bonus would take off 10% from it and you would only get 90 skill.
The bonus does -not- go to your actual skill. It is stored, but you can't view the bonus skill you have accumulated anywhere.
You are not gaining more skill points, you are gaining less. Edited, Sep 8th 2010 12:12pm by Azurymber
