Profession XP Boost Shouldn't add 30% to Negative XP

Post by 1 Cor 134 » Thu Oct 27, 2016 8:09 pm

In surveying at least, I noticed that when I use a booster, it not only increases the +XP I get by 30% but also the negative events by 30%. I would suggest that it only increases +xP by 30%!

Can't have the good without the bad, besides you're upgraded so events are positive most of the time.

OK, actually my math sucks. I thought about it more and multiplying both positive and negatives does result in 30% more XP...sorry

Actually, when your surveying expanse with a 30% boost active, it does increase the negative xp surveys by 30%

Yeah, it does, at first I was saying it shouldn't, but then I thought about it more and the math works out. If you want the total net XP to be 30% more, you have to multiply both the positive and negative XP you get...

I just didn't think out the math and my math is a bit weak.
