Double XP not working for everyone?

A way to test would be to find a mission, check it out on torhead, for example http://www.torhead.com/mission/fpC3OCb/the-dread-guard and see how much XP it gives. Then see how much you get for completing it.

yes. and you probably are.

unlike missions where you would notice a big difference, such as the daily missions that usually give 8-17k and you would now get 16-34k xp, you probably are getting double xp from the kills.

unlike some games it doesnt show the base xp plus the additional bonus xp you earned.

so instead of seeing:
"You have earned 100 xp for killing enemy Bob Kenobi.
You have earned 100 bonus xp for killing enemy Bob Kenobi (double xp weekend).
You have earned 25 xp for killing enemy Bob Kenobi (Xp boost item)."

in swtor you would only see "You have earned 225 xp for killing enemy Bob Kenobi."
Hope that helps explain a bit more, iirc lotro had it where it would show your base xp and then the bonus xp (from rested xp)

But you might not notice a differentce there because thats what rested xp does normally... so normally you would most likely get the same amount of xp as you do now for killing enemies.

Easy way to see if you are getting double xp, check the listed xp reward in your mission log for a quest, then turn it in. check to see how much xp was really rewarded, it should be double.

Actually, i read somewhere that the listed xp reward takes into accoun the double xp.

It doesn't. Take for example if a pvp daily listed 13,000 exp. That number would still be listed as 13k, but you will receive 26k exp

Well in that case i was only getting the listed last time i played.
I'll test it this weekend, but i'll be playing on a different character so it might work this time.
(since BW messed up Aric i wont be playing my trooper until that is fixed)

no, now when double xp is on the quest log will show the amount rewarded with double xp already taken into account, so the quest log will show 26k, not 13
