I started a second character on my account to skill up as an alchemist. I started crafting different recipes, 2 times each, and at first I was getting the first-time and second-time XP bonuses. After a while I noticed that I was no longer getting those bonuses. I was now getting the bonuses for third-time and fourth-time crafts. I noticed this at some point after I had switched to my first character and back. My first character had already done all these recipes, exactly twice, some months back. So now it seems that the XP bonuses are account based. Is that intentional? I noticed that the recipe book is account based, so maybe the bonuses are also.
