Subject: Enhanced Nodes and Experience Absorption Changes

We are implementing some changes to experience and absorption, primarily to encourage more player interaction. These changes include the following:

Enhanced Experience Absorption In Major Gathering Places -- Major gathering locations in every major realm (see list to follow) will now enhance your rate of experience absorption, above and beyond what a normal node will provide! While most of these nodes are public, all CHEs will also receive this benefit in the Common Room (or equivalent) of their primary house (not annexes). MHOs may coordinate with their guru to purchase an enhanced node for a Common Room (or equivalent) in their building, provided the room is either open to the public or the MHO is sufficiently large and active to support a "members only" location.

Adventurers Guild Bounty Rewards -- The total amount of the experience rewards will remain the same; however, two thirds of the reward will be granted directly to your absorbed experience. The remaining one third of the reward will be granted as unabsorbed experience, as it is currently.

Logic Bonus Changes -- The benefit of Logic bonus on experience absorption has been changed from a multiplier of the base amount to an addition to the base amount. When on a node or in town, you will absorb an extra (Logic Bonus/5) experience every pulse. When in a hunting area, you will absorb an extra (Logic Bonus/7) per pulse. For most players this will result in a small improvement while on a node and no significant change when in a hunting area.

Subject: RE: Enhanced Nodes and Experience Absorption Changes

The following change has been rolled in:

The Adv. Guild Bounty experience rewards will now be fully applied to your "to be absorbed" experience up until you become moderately "saturated". Any reward in excess of that amount will have half applied to your "to be absorbed" experience and half will be absorbed instantly.

For people who turn in their bounties while at a "must rest" state, this will result in about half of the instant absorption they have been gaining over the past week. For those who turn in bounties at less than "must rest" state, this will result less instant absorption (potentially none), and more time spent saturated.

Subject: Super Nodes and One More Change


Special thanks to GM Warden who has fixed two things.

The first is the location of the supernodes. They are:

Gardenia Commons

Firefly Villa, Merchant Lounge

The second is the disturbingly rude fellow at the pawnshop has been given lessens in manners.
