Greetings,

in the last few weeks I have noticed that a small triangular index mark has appeared on my progress bars, combat and tradeskill, sometimes on the top scale and sometimes on the bottom one. I thought to begin with they were to indicate my 'experience debt' after I had been killed. But this appears to be not the case. They seem to appear and vanish randomly.

I think it started at about the time of the mid May update.

Can anyone explain please?

That's your vitality mark.

As your character "rests" (don't do anything to earn xp, logged out, etc) you earn vitality - which is basically bonus xp.

The index mark that you're seeing is when your vitality will run out.  Example, you're at 60% and the mark is somewhere around 90%.. you'll earn double xp until you get to that mark.

The mark switches to the bottom of the bar if your remaining vitality is only a couple % ahead of where you are.  In the former example of 60%, if your vitality ran out at 63% you would see the mark on the bottom.

HTH.

Yeah your vitality refills when that character is logged out. Wait a week and you'll be back to 100%.
