Dont forget the 15% exp food that you get from finishing the bone chip orb (Seeress) quests.

The largest amount before that, I believe, was the two weekends prior to the launch of RoK, where they were giving 50% bonuses.

I know for a fact that the server bonus, vitality, and potions stack.  If you have the default UI for the xp bar, you can hover over it now and it will show you all bonuses.  In the last bonus weekend, it showed the server bonus and potion bonus in addition to the vitality.  Wait for the weekend and try it out for yourself.

There are two different potion types (different names), and you can have one of each up, and you get two identical icons. The problem is they also have different durations. But you can get about another 85% of experience bonus with the veteran potions.Unless this is a bug, and they fix it before the weekend <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

you know....with that many bonus's... Grinding may be pretty viable...unless it affects quest XP...even if it does, it may be more efficient.

Meaning that you will have a larger portion of your xp gains via killing stuff then via quests at lower levels once you start hitting the 60's the amount of xp you get per kill is dwarfed by the amount of xp you get per quest.</p><p>Also one subtle note, I would strongly not recomend anyone to "grind" out levels, it is much better to do quests since you will get AP XP doing quests and grinding mobs you don't get diddly for AP xp.</p>

Keep in mind that all this "wonderful" stacked bonus experience will eat your vitality away that much faster, so have a party!

Thats actually kinda good...I'm in Japan so I'm a day in the future, so when I'm back at work on Monday, the bonus weekend will only be half over.
