AA XP Bonus Going Up In June

Instead of Auto granting like 2000 AA thread on EQPlayers Forum

Additionally, the initial bonus for the bottom end will be significantly increased. I haven't decided the actual bonus amount changes yet, but it will be larger than the current 500%.


Good news for those of you trying to catch up...and for my 50 alts.

Cite? Last I saw, it was at eight months after the release date, which doesn't put any changes until July.

I don't know about it being June, but Eldiroth said:

It's for AAs. That's all I can control personally. At the 8 month mark, you're going to receive the Alaran Language AAs that are the prerequisites for the other AA in the expansion.


The 8th month mark is 15 July, not 15 June. VoA was released November 15th. In the new patch notes on test there is no mention of it and I have not found anywhere where someone said it was coming to a close in June.

Development cycles are often dated for the month the development happened in, not their release internally.

Which causes great confusion at work when someone cites 'the April release', unless you know that they mean April 2011, and our IT department just sucks.
