This coming weekend, from 12:01 AM PDT on Friday, December 30th and ending at 11:59 PM PST on Tuesday, January 3rd, EverQuest II will be running a Double XP promotion (+100% XP). Take advantage of these five days and watch those XP bars fill up!

The bonus applies to AA, tradeskill, and adventure experience gained this weekend. Our French, German, Japanese and Test servers will also be enjoying the increase in XP gain.

Happy New Year and happy adventuring!

I would love to see this answered:

Will double XP apply to BL Warders?

My guess is no, which is unfortunate.

Thank you!! *grind grind grind*  Anyway will the XP bonus potions I have stack with that? (ie; double xp [+100%exp] + potion [+100% xp] = 300% total xp?)

Yes potions should stack with other bonuses - always have in the past anyway.

Hmm. Seems to be 5, but SOE seems confused as well.

It's been extended so the updated version (this one) is correct. We're sorry for the confusion.

SJ thread or this thread is a lie. It is Jan 3rd right now PST just after midnight and the server bonus is gone. According to this post, we should still have unti 11:59 PM TONIGHT, PST.

I wonder if there were other people, like me, who made plans based on the posted information that we'd have double-XP until the end of today (1/3/12), and are very unhappy to find their schedule choices backfired.  Outages and crap like that, we have to live with, but what's the excuse for this?

I can't believe this... because of the original post, I planned all the holiday stuff for 30-2, save the grind for the 3rd, since I am not working... this just sucks.

Very sad face incoming....

Wouldn't be the first time SOE doesn't hold up to their word.

While this is ridiculous why it's off right now, I can't say that I'm suprised... I bought a few Vitality pots from the marketplace just for tomarrow. Now they're basically a waste...
