Fatigue Reset?Follow

Soo.. I dunno bout you guys, but I haven't quite seen the exp bonus system reset yet. For the first week, I had leveled Gladiator up to 17, then started getting bonus exp, with my exp bar being yellow. I'm assuming this means I've hit the "8 hour" threshold, and my exp rate will start to decline from this point.

Well, to test out the fatigue reset, I stayed logged in with my Gladiator overnight on 9/28 to see if it was actually going to hard reset the fatigue in 1 week. My exp bar was still yellow come Wednesday morning, but after killing a couple monsters, I noticed the exp bar turned to white and I was no longer receiving the exp bonus points. Sounds good, except by the time I hit level 19, my exp bar is yellow again, and I'm once again receiving exp bonus.

I'm assuming there had to be some sort of refresh, because I never logged out or changed classes with my Gladiator while I was waiting for the 1 week refresh, and it did return to normal exp for a few hours before hitting yellow again.

Now it doesn't seem like that big of an issue just yet, because I am still gaining exp even while the exp bar is yellow.. but it just doesn't seem like it was a complete reset as I had assumed it would be. Doesn't make sense how I could go from 1-17 before hitting bonus exp, and then hit it again from 17-19.

Anyone care to comment on their experience with this system yet?

Surplus degens on its own over time, that would explain why it went white again for a while before starting again. you're full reset should be exactly 7 days after you started leveling gladiator. Maybe maintenance time caused a problem?

Need to differentiate between xp and weapon skill, for starters. You're talking about your Gladiator's level (rank?) but you're talking about xp. XP is your physical level. Weapon skill points are your class rank.

I hit bonus xp a few days ago from crafting like a madman. I was about level 22 when my current xp went yellow and I still finished out the week at level 25. Yesterday I logged in and it was still yellow until I killed something and it went white. I've since added on about 200k more xp and it's still white. I haven't focused on any one class to have hit bonus skill towards their ranks yet.

I noticed my Phys level 24 was yellow and after every fight or synth it says Im getting bonus exp, I thought I was supposed to get less exp, not bonus.

It's worded poorly. You are getting less, but I think what they're trying to say is that you've reached the "8 hour" cap and you should really be getting nothing but you're still getting something as a bonus. Or something. Rest assured, however, that you are getting less regardless of what it says.

I hit bonus physical experience earlier in the week sometime during level23, like a lot of people. It stayed for some time and I hit 25 with it, but tuesday night it reset for me and went back white. Hasn't come back since. Currently 27, half way to 28. To me, it seemed like mine reset sooner than a full week since I didn't start playing until early wednesday morning after a midnight release. Not sure why it happened sooner, but I'll take it...maybe some downtime from all the recent maintenance helped? -shrugs-

Worded poorly, possibly. But I never made any mention of referring to my Physical level. I made multiple references to my Gladiator, and only my Gladiator's experience level.. Differentiating between my Physical and Skill exp every time I mentioned bonus exp would have been overly redundant, when it's fairly clear I was referring to my Gladiator's experience.. Honestly though.. Physical experience fatigue at 17?

Anywho, thanks for the input guys. I had simply assumed it was going to be a hard reset similar to how leves have a 36 hour cooldown, as opposed to when you initially started to level up a partical class.

The nature of the wording is due to this:

The "bonus" experience you're earning is counted towards which tier of surplus you're on.

So for example, on my conjurer, I'm level 19. I finish a fight, am granted xxx class xp and my conjury skill bonus increases. What that's doing is accruing the amount of surplus xp you earned. When you reach a certain (invisible) threshold, your surplus will "rank up" and penalize you harder. I ranked up my "bonus" surplus xp to 3 now, so I get significantly less XP than before I was into surplus.

Replace "bonus" with "surplus" and it'll help understand, and understand that when your "bonus rank" or "surplus rank" goes up, it means you've hit the next tier of the penalty.
