    There seems to be little rhyme or reason to when you get the daily XP boost, other than possibly, your first login after 24 hours from the previous time you received the XP boost. I.e., I got no boost on Sunday, but I got one this morning (Monday) when I logged in. My prior boost had been Saturday evening. Even though I played until around 10 PM Sunday evening, no boost was received until my Monday morning login. I've noticed this pattern across three accounts.

    This follows a rather similar pattern to the problem that initially existed with the Oracle and its daily bonuses from going to confessional. It would be better/more consistent to simply have a single reset point daily, as is done with the Oracle, so one can reliably get the daily xp reward.

    Alternatively, it could be changed to a dynamic bonus that's capped at either end, slowly ticking upwards from 1 to 10,000 and then stopping there at the end of the 24 hour mark.

    Whenever you visit, you get the "pool" of XP waiting for you.

    Why would it need to be so complicated?

    Yes it would be nice to not have to log in 1 minute later each day to keep getting boosts - Would be nice to see my time every day at 6PM Est. but any time would be nicer than 24 timer from last log in.

    Incremental sorry bad idea.

    I am in favor of this, but I wouldn't say it "needs to". I mean - they don't need to give a daily xp fix at all.

    Mmm... The way they've made this sound is that they *intend* for people to be able to get 10k exp for logging in every day. If this is what they've *intended* then the implementation *needs* to be modified because as it stands if you don't log in/aren't currently playing exactly 24.01 hours later, you will not receive experience for that day. Semantics I realize, but the current implementation *needs* to be improved to function according to what they've said they *intend*.

    I am finding that it is 9 or more minutes. Using chat log to check. This effectively makes it so that I will guarantee to have to miss a day even though I played because the timer is going to go beyond my playtime quickly. Last night was one of those days. 11:05pm is my new time, but I am not going to stay up that late each night with an ever increasing 10 minutes added.

    Just use the Oracle timer midnight reset, please.

    The message in chat doesn't show up right away but the XP does.

    Here's why the current way it is implemented is problematic. If it's supposed to reward people who play consistently, it's failing at that task.

    Friday: Get done with work, have dinner, etc. Log in at 7 PM (next login reward for Saturday is now 7PM)
    Saturday: The weekend. Yay! Log in at 5 PM (before renewal). Play until 11 PM and game crashes. Log back in. Get XP reward. (next login reward for Sunday is now 11 pM)
    Sunday: Log in at 5 PM. Work early tomorrow, log off @ 10 PM. NO XP Reward
    Monday: Log in at 7 PM. Get Monday's reward. etc.

    I.e., you easily can get penalized depending on your schedule, even though you are playing every day.

    @DarkStarr - I think this needs review.

    I'm not complaining. This game is in beta, and they are adding features and soliciting feedback. My point is, as this feature is currently designed, I don't think it's working as they intend. That is the entire point of the feedback and bug report forums. To point out potential issues.
