View Full Version : Crossed Wires buff?

10-15-2008, 06:55 PM
I am finishing up the live events on an alt, and was running back from killing skels in Antonica when I happened to mouse over my XP bar.  It said "You are earning 10% bonus XP from spells and potions."  Now I knew I hadn't consumed any XP potions, so I looked at my spell effects and noticed one called "Crossed Wires" which gives 10% extra combat XP.  It had a timer on it and was counting down from around 4 minutes.  No idea where it came from; it doesn't seem to be in my log or chat window anywhere.  I use HOs but if it's from that that's a very new one.  Anyone ever see that or have a clue what caused it?  (Yeah my character is a barbarian and had drunk some of the summoned ale but the drunk effect had worn off....)

You get it from cleaning the sand diggers at the DIRTY event sites. Default time is 15 minutes, but you can stack it up to, I think, 90 minutes by repeating.

Ahhh, OK, he's the only character I did that on (totally by accident) and after I couldn't move him till he was done beating on the thing and it zapped him, I just thought "What was the purpose of that???".  Thanks for the clear up.

Ahah, thanks for the info.  I had that on my little Assassin and no one knew where it came from.  I noticed it when in the DIRTY camp.
