1.3 XP Boosts Not Working

Just bought the space, class mission and exploration xp boosts on an alt I'm leveling. 575k credits boom.

So, go into space missions and do the highest one I can for level and no extra XP on the kills, so I figure maybe you only get it on the mission. Then, no xtra XP on the mission. ***?!? So, I purposely do they easy first escort mission, you know, the one where you get a whopping 5 XP for completing. So I complete it, figure I should get either 6 or 7 XP (instead of 5), since I now have a 30% bonus and guess what, I get a whole 5 XP just like before.

Come on BW. There is so little in this content update and yet what is there doesn't even work. To say I am frustrated at this point with all the bugs in the game which keep getting introduced with each patch is an understatement.

Sub renewal is coming up shortly... I was going to resub but I am getting to the point where I'm not sure if I am going to. This is pathetic considering how small this update is.

The xp boosts do work, but the 5xp reward is a cap applied if you are too high a level, that cap comes after the xp boost so you only get 5xp still.

Do a mission at your level and you can see the now higher reward.

If you read where he said.....he did the highest one for his level. He then went and did the low level one. That is not the issue.

You are on the character you bought the perks on when testing this, aren't you?

After all, the perks are character based, not legacy based.

rofl. so you do a space mission that is 'the highest for your level' and at the the end you're given 5xp.

sounds like you did the lowest space mission, not the highest

I've found that there is really only a very very very very very small level range in which space missions give xp... pretty much the level they become available. Once you are 1 level higher than that level and the mission turns yellow from orange they only give 5xp for the bonus missions, and once you are 2-3 levels above the entire mission only gives 5xp.

Needless to say the 30% bonus really isn't worth it... though the real reason I didn't get it is because of what a slap in the face it is... Bioware nerfed space xp by 50% in 1.2 and now they try and sell us a 30% increase for absurd amounts of money. It's disgraceful to be honest.

Apparently reading comprehension is not a strong point for you. Here I copy n pasted what he wrote, you can try re-read it again. I will also even make it easier for you & anyone else who suffers from reading comprehension issues.

"So, go into space missions and do the highest one I can for level and no extra XP on the kills, so I figure maybe you only get it on the mission. Then, no xtra XP on the mission. ***?!?

I don't know what's the point of most of the charakter perks. XP boost for 50lvl? Like 20lvl legacy? You can't have toon on legacy 20lvl (example) and still get some additional benefits from it.

All the perks were purchased on the character doing the missions who is currently level 38. First, I did a level 40 mission with no bonuses, then did the first escort mission with no bonuses. Secondly, even if it is currently capped at 5 xp these legacy perks should still apply bonus to base. Otherwise they are a waste of credits.

It is beyond me how one of the small amount of things added to this patch doesn't even work on day one.

Yeah, all these seem pretty worthless. Plus if you're a true alt-holic, you play your alts when they have the xp meter filled with extra xp. Plus, just even doing FPs, Space, or PvP already helped tremendously. About the only thing I like is the shuttle to Black Hole, and LFG Tool(it has worked for me).
