Explanation of incident then screenshot.

We started fighting an Aldgoat Nanny. I was at 9555 Conjurer Rank XP (sorry, no screenshot). After fight, I gained a bunch of skill XP. After fight, it only adds a fraction of that skill to my XP bar. Now for the screenshot then more explanation.

See where we engaged the Aldgoat Nanny and then I got 8 skill ups? Those skill ups add up to be 313 total. After the fight, you'll see I get 275 Phys XP and then 40 and 41 Conjury skill. You'll note my XP bar is at 9636. 9636 - 9555 = 81. That means I only got the 40 and 41 skill (81 total...why is it shown as two separate anyways?), despite the fact that I got 313 during the entire battle.


My whole group was complaining about this the whole time. This didn't happen just once. Our marauder said she was about to level up and should have levled up 6 fights ago, but she kept receiving no XP. Sometimes I would get 500 XP off a crab enemy, and my group would hardly get any (maybe luck). I dunno, something's up. We definitely were not getting our full displayed XP.

Huh, I've never gotten all of the exp that it said during a fight between actions. It would be nice if I did but it has never happened to me.

I've hit Botanist rank two three or four times. At least three. But that might be due to Selbina, like two days ago when the server crashed and we lost 10-30 minutes of data.

with conj, 2 different skill xps at the end of a fight signifies source of xp gain. I was healmonkeying for a friend, but before throwing heals I'd whack at the nanny a bit, getting ~50 exp from that, then another 200 from heals, and they'd show up as seperate totals after the nanny died. Though sometimes i'd get the skill up messages during the fight then get nothing at the end. Quite annoying.

A few of my new ls mates were testing this as well last night and keeping logs of who got what xp etc and what showed up on their bar. Also yesterday there was a post here on zam about groups with duo's were fine but anything (trio and up) more than that someone got the short end of the stick. The only way the poster of that thread found a way around it, was he (as conj) would only heal. He thought beucase he was getting sp from his cures and not damage, opposed to his two dd's getting damage xp becuase this seemed to make it where everyone got all skillpoints added

I've heard of group mates complaining of this as well. Sounds like a bug alright.

The two different exp reports, one is for damage, one is for healing/buffs cast during combat. For some reason the report them separate.

Seems to only happen when grouped as well... or are people experiencing this alone (maybe so if someone had the problem with botanist).

Ongoing since earlier betas IIRC, no doubt reported thousands of times since retail release. Has nothing to do with conjurer and potential separate healing/damage SP pools. Affects every class. Clearly SE can't fix it as they've addressed far more minor issues in previous patches.

Started a thread a few days ago about this:

Its pretty ridiculous as it seems to happen quite a bit for me. I've been avoiding any DoW or DoM classes because of this. Hopefully they fix it, but sounds like they cant/wont.

Hopefully they fix it, but sounds like they cant/wont.

nor sure where that idea comes from. Why not? A flaw in expereince gain isn't something light and I doubt it will simply be ignored. I have noticed this inside parties mainly, I will get 500ish sp off a mob but at end of fight I get 0 -.-

the coding issue with it may be far more complex then we know, I seriously doubt they are just willfully ignoring it.
