    I'm not quite sure what that 6X exactly means, but this is how it's currently working (build 1168):

    (live) Take Oracle Test 10,000 (QA) 15,000
    (live) Turn in Dead Body to Davropos 12800 (QA) 24000

    That's what 6X is.

    Hm. I suppose it's 6x the original rate? We're currently under "double" xp that started with the pandemic. But that was after the original rate got doubled permanently. So the Oracle's base xp would currently be 2500. And six times that is 15,000.

    That doesn't follow with Davropos, though. But I vaguely recall that the xp given for dailies is some how calculated based on other factors, rather than just a set amount? I may well be wrong about that, though. But it makes some sense; since I often get weird amounts for turn ins, like 61,951 or some other odd number that it would be weird for a dev to have just decided on.

    I got 1.5x recent rate for the following items on QA:
    oracle - 15K (10K on live)
    elysium silver node - 7500 (5K on live)
    pie dough - 150 (100 on live)
    cooking oil - 150 (100 on live)

    We'll just have to see what we get on live but if he really is basing things on original rate and not when 2x became standard then we got 2x rate again then his 3x will be less than the xp we are currently getting on live and people won't be happy. He did say 1.5 current rate though so maybe he just didn't set QA to what he told us he was setting it to.

    Just nudged Chris on Twitter, he said once he verified it was working at 6x, he had turned it down to 1.5x.

    Thank you Cora. I really hate that we aren't given the proper information to test things for them.

    He's also apparently going to permanently turn up QA xp to 10x.

    I think that's a great move.
