    Title: Daily XP Bonus not always awarded
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker?No
    Details:

    It has felt to me for awhile that the daily XP bonus doesn’t always occur. Recently I did some detailed tracking which seems to confirm there is a problem.

    A summary of the issue and detailed tracking are below.


    Summary:

    When I’m traveling (real world), I often login once per day just to get the daily XP bonus (i.e. I login and immediately login out). In these cases I see the the daily XP bonus message in the chat window and I see the XP bonus numerically reflected in my XP.

    When I’m playing regularly, usually 5-6 hours a day, I do not see the XP bonus message in the chat window and I do not see the XP bonus numerically reflected in my XP pool on the adventuring tab of the skills screen.

    I’ve been tracking my XP at the start and end of each day so I can tell if it’s changed due to the bonus after logging in.

    Also, I don’t know if the timing of the eligibility for the Oracle test is on the same clock as daily XP bonus, but I haven’t noticed an issue there. I didn’t track it as closely, but most days when I login I visit the oracle right away and am typically eligible for the test.


    Detailed Tracking:

    ———logins while traveling (real world), logged out right away——
    5/9/2018; logged in at 10:30am CDT. XP = 244,883. No message about daily XP award. Do see other system messages.

    5/10/2018: logged in at 8:45am CDT. XP = 254,883. DID see message about 10k double daily XP award.


    5/11/2018: logged in at 9:14am CDT. XP = 264,883. DID see message about 10k double daily XP award.

    5/12/2018: logged in at 11:47am CDT. XP = 274,883. DID see message about 10k double daily XP award.

    ———




    ————normal gameplay patter, 5-6 hours/day—————

    5/13/2018: logged in at 9:32am CDT. XP = 284,883. DID see message about 10k double daily XP award.

    Played from 7:30pm - 11:30pm CDT.

    XP at logout was 170,387



    5/14/2018: logged in at 7:06pm CDT. XP = 180,387. DID see message about 10k double daily XP award.

    Played from 7:06pm - 11:05pm CDT.

    XP at logout was 100,509




    5/15/2018: logged in at 5:41pm CDT. XP = 100,483. Did not see message daily XP award.

    Played from 5:41pm - 11:41pm CDT.

    XP at logout was 96,354






    5/16/2018: logged in at 4:06pm CDT. XP = 95,354 Did not see message daily XP award.

    Played from 4:06pm - 11:45pm CDT.

    XP at logout was 268,533





    5/17/2018: logged in at 5:00pm CDT. XP = 268,533. Did not see message daily XP award.

    Steps to Reproduce:

    Login in and out right away one per day around the same time. Observe that the XP bonus message in the chat window occurs and the XP bonus is numerically reflected in the XP pool.

    Then, play for 5-6 hours a day (less might work but I'm not sure) for a few days and observe that the XP bonus message no longer appears in the chat window and is no longer reflected in the XP pool (i.e XP pool at login is the say as it was at logout the day before)

    @Ffred please check your chatlog (daily textbased chatlog)
    for me it often happens that it is not shown ingame but in the chatlog it is posted...

    for win7 you find it under
    C:\Users\YOURUSER\AppData\Roaming\Portalarium\Shroud of the Avatar\ChatLogs

    there you should find one textfile for each day

    it it search for "10,000"
    and you will find something like this:

    [5/21/2018 2:36:14 PM] [2:36 PM] Reniar Woodpicker received 10,000 daily bonus experience points.

    Thanks for the tip. The chatlog is very helpful.

    I found this for 5/15/2018

    [5/15/2018 7:10:43 PM] Nox Ffred received 10,000 daily bonus experience point

    Since I logged in that day at 5:41pm, this explains why my XP had not changed since I logged out the day before.

    So, I think then the in-game bug is that the chat log doesn't always display the message. Certainly a minor bug in the grand scheme of things right now.


    Thanks!
