    Greetings Avatars,

    In celebration of the successful launch of Episode 1 we are going to double the experience points everyone receives when completing a quest (Adventurer and/or Producer XP), and when defeating enemies (Adventurer XP), for the next 2 weeks. This event starts today, March 28, and ends on April 11. Enjoy!

    NOTE: The softcap on experience gain of 1 Million XP / hour is still in place, so higher end players in high XP earning environments will hit that softcap faster.

    For new players, register an account and get started today at: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?...oud_of_the_avatar:_forsaken_virtues__digital_

    You can also pick up the game on Steam at: http://store.steampowered.com/app/326160/Shroud_of_the_Avatar_Forsaken_Virtues/

    *Also see www.shroudoftheavatar.game and www.sota-game.com for other territories.

    Does this stack with the Obsidian Potion of Guidance? Increases skill learning speed for 7 New Brittanian months (7 Earth days)? @Berek , @DarkStarr

    Is this in effect at this moment, or after another patch?

    Nice idea, thanks for implementing it: ahem...Sorry to be THAT kind of player but, whenever you do these "2x XP promotions" would you consider the possibility of also implementing a toggle for those of us who want to level at a normal/vanilla pace (as a toggle, like in EQ2 where you can decide to turn off Combat XP and/or Quest XP, which in this case would be simply a "turn off XP special bonus" or something like that; or as a usable item like it happens in SWTOR). Thanks!

    Guidance potion applies experience out of your pool faster. This is a boost to how quickly you add experience to your pool.
