I will wait for the mathier people to sort out the numbers, and will settle for just being excited. XD Maybe I'll get my 36 Juggernaut to 50 before the expansion after all!

lol I'm already at legacy level 50 but this will make finishing my vanguard and juggernaught alts a HELL of a lot faster, might get started on a commando alt while I'm at it too!

Nice to see this, time to break my altitis itch again!

I actually really like this idea!

"EARN DOUBLE XP AND UNIQUE REWARDS!"

Can you shed any insight on this?

Ah, I wasn't aware that the rested bonus only applied to killing mobs. Thanks for the clarification.

So essentially, these Double EXP Weekends spread the effects of Rested EXP to all activities instead of just killing mobs, but you will not run out of Rested EXP. Did I understand this correctly?

What if I don't want to level quickly? Will there be a way to opt out of this?

Most of the time I get to play is on the weekends. I don't want to level too rapidly because it means I'll earn fewer warzone comms prior to 40 (and thus fewer WZ medpacks and adrenals) and potentially could prevent me from maxing out my ranked comms prior to 50.

Not only that, I'm already legacy 50. There's no reason to for me to want extra XP. The legacy levels past about 20 are pointless anyway.

Perfect. I can finally plow through a few characters that have been pending as I tire of the planet arcs. The class stories remain the top feature of SW:TOR - thank you for allowing me to experience them a little more painlessly over the coming weekends.

But if you have rest xp built up, which takes over when killing mobs? Do we use up the rest xp then it goes to event xp, or does the rest xp stay "banked"?
