I just noticed that my experience (ex: Marauder 11,023 / 18,000 with a progress bar underneath it) has the first number 11,023 in yellow and the 18,000 is normal white. I also noticed that during the leve I was doing after I beat mobs it would say "You've earned 123 experience" AND "Your axe skill bonus increases." It said this after multiple mobs each time.
Any idea what this means? When I change to another job it turns white and I've seen my fisrt expereince number be green before. I'm not getting a surplus message (bonus wouldn't be surplus would it?).
