SP - Sentinel glitch?Follow

I duo regularly with my BF - we've noticed a problem with sp distribution on levequests, we are hoping someone may be able to shed some light on this issue.

Our usual set up is PUG and CON, with my BF PUG always being the higher of the two - slowly I've closed the gap to one rank, equating to a 5 SP variation in our rewards, durring this time I've always taken the more SP.
Recently we have switched to 29 CON and 20 LNC, however I have still been taking the higher SP on CON.
Would this be down to my sentinel that is level 15?
Regardless of going THM 14 or CON 29 I take the most SP against his LNC 20, is my sentinel overriding my CON level?

This appears only to be happening under leve conditions, not with normal mobs

We have run the folling tests:
Under levequest conditions:
CON 150 sp
SEN 150 sp
LNC 100 sp

THM 200 sp
SEN 200 sp
LNC 100 sp

Out of levequest conditions:
CON 80 sp
SEN 80 sp
LNC 100 sp

THM 240 sp
SEN 240 sp
LNC 120 sp

Any help help or feed back welcome!

A few things to note. The 29 CON is getting bonus sp by having the LNC within the -10. LNC will get no bonus because the CON is outside the +5. Where these r30 leves? I've noticed significantly reduced sp when I'm helping friends duo r30 leves on my r20 THM.

Lastly, at r20 there is a threshold. The SP gain once you hit r20 hits a drops off significantly. I was in the middle of a leve last night when I hit r20 on my lancer. The subsequent mobs for the leve gave me about half sp.

It's possible that it's overriding it. I'm at a spot now where my primary class rank will never be higher than my sentinel rank (unless I opted to run around without a shield on GLA, CON, or THM, but...why?). But I did notice that when my Sentinel rank hit 20 while my primary class was 19 or lower, I was getting the pre-20 SP value from kills on Sentinel. It may be that it bases the calculation on your lowest rank of the two. I'm just not able to confirm one way or the other.

Thanks, this has given us some more angles to look at,
we'll do some more testing on different levels, will post the results.
