XP Calculation

So yesterday I read a reddit post proclaiming XP bonuses were reduced in 2.2 and decided to test it out to see if the Rubies, Leorics, and Gem of Ease were actually worth using when I run T6 or speed GRs. I went on PTR tonight to test. This isn’t any new news or any recent changes, just wanted to test to see if Gem of Ease was worth using. Here are the results:

 

Greater Rifts:

  • XP % from items are summed up (Cains+Borns+Ruby+Leoric+Hellfire.), and then multiplied with GR XP modifier.
  • +Experience from secondaries & Gem of Ease are NOT multiplied by GR XP modifier.

T6 Rifts:

  • XP % from items are summed up (Cains+Borns+Ruby+Leoric+Hellfire.) ADDITIVELY with T6 XP% modifier.
  • +Experience from secondaries & Gem of Ease ARE multiplied, by T6 XP% modifier.

Example GR#1:

+91% XP (20% Born + 30% Leorics Ring + 41% Ruby) If you killed a zombie worth 1,000,000 XP, you would instead get 1,910,000 XP.

Example GR#2:

+2000 XP from Gem of Ease If you killed a zombie worth 1,000,000 XP, you would instead get 1,002,000 XP.

Example T6#1:

+91% XP (20% Born + 30% Leorics Ring + 41% Ruby) Since T6 base = 1600% +91% = 1691% = ~5.7% ,more XP If you killed a skeleton worth 100,000 XP, you would instead get 105,688 XP.

Example T6#2:

+2000 XP from Gem of Ease T6 Base of +1600% XP = +34000 XP = ~34% more XP If you killed a skeleton worth 100,000 XP, you would instead get 134,000 XP.

Conclusion:

1) STOP using Gem of Ease in GRs. Completely not worth it. It adds < 0.1% to your XP gain in GR35+. The extra XP you receive from Gem of Ease and XP per Kill is exactly the same from GR1 to GR100.

2) XP% gear in T6 really isn’t worth it either. +% XP is additive into the base T6 +1600% and results in ~5% more XP for a lot of damage sacrificed.

3) Gem of Ease IS actually somewhat decent in T6. ~18% more XP against standard mobs like zombies, ~3% on ‘large’ mobs.
