Default Bring back quest XP for those of us playing at a normal pace.

I'm not a super hardcore player like everyone else, but I've played on p99 off and on for 10 years. I started an Iksar necro after taking a break for 8 months. I don't have an alt that I handed off cash or items to myself, I'm playing as a legit noob would.

Last night I saw an Iksar necro hit level 50. Congrats to them, less than a week for a race with an XP penalty and no quest XP is very impressive.

That being said can quest XP come back so that those of us that play more casually can not feel held back? I understand removing it was to prevent people from rushing their Iksar alts, but it feels like it really didn't do what was expected. Maybe I'll just come back in a month or something idk.

I think our situations and perspectives on the matter are slightly different, even if we are both in agreement about certain aspects of this.

I thought I was gonna be a clever boy leveling in qeynos area once I hit 8.. and I just hit 8 today ;D but they removed gnoll fang XP, and some guy hits 50 in 4 days.

They tried to stop the players from doing what they do, and they still did what they do even harder.

I assume Overhand stood by as a bard AOE'd stuff since he was in Dreadlands.

You can thank people like Castle above for ruining quest exp for everyone else for a month.

Ya know; I started an iksar shammy this morning. After completing the curscale armor quest three times it dawned on me that doing quests even without the xp reward is pretty cool. Being a level 3 completely untwinked shammy is pretty fun.

Like most people I'm in Field of Bone. I'll stay here a few more levels then venture out and discover what I've missed. Simply surfing the wiki or just regular wandering zones (or places in zones) that I've never been is a viable alternative to turning in stacks upon stacks of bone chips or lightstones. Give it a try!
