Thank you ZOS for the blanket exp bonus

I hate most holidays and i certainly don't like using those mementos and wont use some of them to get an exp bonus. So far this year i been busy doing other things (shards, public dungeons, shrines, and books) and cant be bothered with the event at all as i am trying to finish up the crafting skills on these two characters before my eso plus runs out and i lose access to the dlc areas that plus gave me access to. So yah, busy grinding. LOVE the fact that i got exp bonus just for showing up. Good call, the right call. Ofc i know it's about server performance but i still appreciate not missing out on exp buff for not celebrating these in game holidays. Wunderbar!

    This thread is for appreciating the change to blanket xp gain without having to participate in the event.

    I agree with OP and appreciate this change. It’s nice for pvpers to get the bonus full time without having to leave cyrodiil to use the mug over and over. No more going without bonus xp to avoid having to wait in the queue again.

    I can see how many players might appreciate not having to keep and eye on the XP buff and not having to keep in mind that it could not be refreshed in Cyro.

    Personally I preferred how it was before due to the fact that we could 'bank' the XP buff but hey, you win some, you lose some.

    They did this for a couple of reasons:
    - to reduce database space needed for less server load aka better performance
    - to prevent people from "saving" the bonus
    - to make it easier for everyone to use while still keeping the option to use the memento

    It's all coming together and for being such a small change it's making everything right (Yes, i'm against saving the bonus for "later".). Indeed very well done ZOS.

    When they invent fusion engines for cars that never run out of fuel, these are the people who will be demanding that we still stop at a gas station every few hours and mimic putting gas in the tank, because that added so much flavor to the driving experience. ;)

    Appreciate the passive bonus very much. Besides being much more convenient, I never liked the the animation of having to "drink" alcohol.

    Whether you're in favour of the change or not, there's no excuse for the XP bonus not being documented anywhere - including on your buffs status.

    Yeah huge improvement

    Although they should add a line to the character screen because in the beginning I wasn’t sure how it worked if I didn’t use the memento.

    Not everyone uses the dungeon finder so they don't see that, especially new lower level characters.

    I really appreciate the 2x XP event as well. I can still enjoy the drinking animation from the mug.

    On console I’ve been able to get 2 new toons to 50 so they can get the CP from my restored main.

    I bought an account on PC and I’ve been able to get one toon to 40 today, should be 50 soon. Should have enough time to get my other to 50 as well. This is a completely new account though, going to take time to get leveled like on console.

    I think the lack of indicator noting the XP boost might be ZOS trying this new feature, seeing how it works, before committing to adding an indicator. If it works well, performance wise, then they will probably make it a permanent feature for all events and add an indicator... if it doesn't add any performance improvements, then they will probably return to the previous method of XP boosts for events.
