Bolster your characters and advance to Level 50 quicker with first ever Double XP weekends as you prepare to continue your adventure in the first Digital Expansion: Rise of the Hutt Cartel, coming this Spring with 5 new levels and a brand new planet, Makeb! Starting Friday March 15th, all players will be able to log in to The Old Republic™ and receive twice the amount of XP every weekend until April 8, 2013. Don’t worry if you’ve already hit Level 50. Your Legacy XP will double too!

Good event, I for one hate grinding multiple lvl 50s and this should really speed up the process.

Does this affect all activities? PvP as well as PvE and will it stack with the legacy boosts as well?

Ah, but... but..! I'm busy until the end of March! I don't have time to level alts! Dammit.

Well, looks like I just might get my Agent to Level 50 and get that Tionese gear before it gets vanquished afterall.

So, hang on a second:

Base EXP times 2 (Rested EXP) times 2 (Double EXP Event) + 20% (EXP Boost Stim) + 5% (Subscriber Bonus) = 425 % EXP, or is my math that off?
- = = The Atrias Legacy = = -
Aryne, Jedi Sentinel | Cayra, Jedi Sage | Kherra, Scoundrel | Khenna, Vanguard
Vertos, Sith Juggernaut | Zedas, Sith Sorcerer | Ysari, Sniper | Neith, Powertech

Thanks for the segue! Let me blow your minds

My understanding of the system is that all of our boosts will multiply from the new base of 200%, so now is the perfect time to get those Legacy perks and XP boosts. I will show you why.

Let's say you planned to level during the March to Makeb entirely through... Flashpoints.

200% base experience
+25% Flashpoint Boost
+30% Flashpoint Legacy perk

*THIS BONUS DOES NOT STACK WITH RESTED EXPERIENCE

Since both of the boosts are being applied to double base XP, they are also doubled. Do you know what that means?!

+310% bonus experience! That is over triple the experience. Enjoying your leveling my friends!

TLDR, yes they stack and for the math nerds it is multiplicative on top of the new base of 200% (assuming I understood it all correctly)

Cool, I might finally be able to be bothered to get my poor 44 missing guardian up to 50!

Or most likely I'll just powerlevel through pvp with my 31 shadow heh. Still, fun, and good idea to help people up the tree before the expansion drops.

Oh and another thing, thanks for my Luxury Skiff. Best. Mount. Ever!
