I don't have anything maxed yet, but say I'm running CNJ and MRD at the same time, and hit 50 on my CNJ first and log out for a week. Does the rested bonus still build up and it's just not visible? If I log in as my CNJ and run a couple of instances, does the rested bonus go down?

I'm interested to know about this as well. I had a ton of rested XP after reaching 50 as a BLM. Then I got ARC to 30. Still had rested xp. Then I started PGL last night to work towards Bard. When I started doing PGL it seemed the rested xp was gone? Didn't matter a whole bunch, cause I only need to get to 15. But I'm certainly curious all the same.

you only get rested XP in some places.

basically check your XP bar and if there is a crescent moon your getting rested XP.

you wont get rested xp afk in town, need to go to the inn for example.

Think the rested xp is percentage based, meaning that the lower the level the faster you'll deplete the rested xp. As for the original question I'm definitely curious as well.

Rested XP builds as a percentage of a level. When you change classes, it's still the same percentage of a level, but it's now that class' level instead.

So for instance:

I build enough rested XP as a 47 MNK to have 50% of my level covered as rested (about 225,000 xp).
I switch to 1 GLD.
50% of my GLD's level is now rested XP (about 250 xp).

What I'd like to see is for them to change this so that rested XP stays associated with the class it was built on. But until something like that happens, you're always better off burning rested XP on the highest-level class you're working on first, and then going and doing whatever you want on other classes.

That is a very very good suggestion. I was wondering why I was only getting a little rested exp when I logged out on lower classes.

Rested EXP does accumulate on a level 50 job. Hit 50 last night, had rested exp this morning.

You can use the rested EXP on any job. I think that was part of your question that was not directly answered. Its you, the character that's rested, not your job.

50% of my GLD's level is now rested XP (about 250 xp).


Can you break this down for me? I don't get it. I thought the rested exp is always "+ x%" for a length of time dependent on how long you were in the area. What exactly does resting on a level 50 do for a level 1 when you switch?

Rested XP accumulates as x% of a level.

Your rested XP value is tied to your character data and not your class data. This means that you have only one rested value for all classes, and all classes will accumulate or diminish that rested value.

So if I spend enough time resting (moon icon under xp bar) to accumulate 50% of a level, then my rested value is 50%. It doesn't matter what class I did that on, and they all accumulate at the same speed (because it's not a fixed amount of xp, it's a percentage).

What I cannot yet confirm (others may) is whether rested xp accumulates if you're resting on a level 50 class.

Detailed breakdown of the process:

Let's use a level 40 PGL and a level 1 MRD, both on the same character.

PGL40 rests for 50% of his level. His rested bar now extends past his gained xp for 50% of the value of that level.
So let's say he needs 200,000 xp to level and has 12,000 of it right now. His rested value (50% of his level currently) extends for the next 100,000 xp on PGL. Rested xp is consumed when crafting, gathering, or killing monsters. It is not consumed by turning in quests, completing hunting logs, uncovering map areas, or any other source of bonus xp (like finishing a dungeon with someone new).

So we have our guy here with his 100,000 potential rested xp. He's sitting pretty, but he's also a little bored of PGL at the moment. He wants to start MRD. So he puts on his axe, and bam he's a MRD.

His MRD now has 50% of its level as rested xp.
So let's say MRD at level 1 needs 500 xp to level. 250 xp is now rested and will be consumed by the things I mentioned above.

He burns that in 16 minutes, because level 1.. and switches back to PGL. His PGL now has 0% rested xp.

Wow nice. With an example like that it really shows how beneficial it is to use your rested EXP on higher level classes.

I just started changing to a higher level class before running across unexplored zonelines for the same reason. Exploration bonus for 23 LNC was about 440 EXP (4400 for mapping a complete area) and was about 1300 EXP (13,000 for complete area) on a lvl 38 class.

I leveled from 38 to 39 just by running around all the zones I had not explored, which was a great time and a welcome relief from FATE grinding. Since it is percentage based, I could have done the same thing and gained 23 to 24 on Lancer. Since 23-24 comes easy, that would have been a net loss.

Summary, save your rested EXP and your Exploration bonus EXP for the highest level class you have available.
