Rest XP?

Just a general question about Rest XP. When your sub ends, do all of your character's accumulated rest xp vanish, or just stays with the character until it is used up?

From experience I can tell it vanishes. My friend gave me his old account when he quit, went from Sub to Preferred and his characters lost their rested XP.

Yes but does it truly vanish? Or is it saved for you once you resubb?
i stopped playing for over a year, came back and resubbed then logged back on and all my chars had rested exp to full it seemed like. So did it save it for me because i could have played before that but of course i would be pref and not a sub

Sounds like it builds automatically whether you are subbed or not (it pre-dates F2P) and unlocks again when you reactivate your subscription.

I do know it maxes out at one full level though. So, lets say your level requires 500k to reach the next level, it stops at 500k rested xp. It doesn't matter whether you are 499K to go, or nearly there. But since only killing mobs reduces it (not quest turn ins, exploration or lore objects) that can easily stretch for several levels.

You accumulate rested XP until your subscription ends and it does not have an "expiration date." It remains until used or you resubscribe.
It's amazing how loud a dollar can be.

Been f2p and just subscribed this weekend. I can vouch that none of my characters had rested experience.

I do have a question on rested experience however. How long does it take to cap? A few days, week, longer?

Dont have any exact numbers but think its around 4-5 days from my experience (to go from 0 to capped rested xp)
