"...it'd be nice to be leveling an alt and not have the rest bar go from blue to purple and slow down the process."The logical failure here isn't that the bar is slowing down - the bar was sped up and is now returning to "normal".FOR THE LOVE OF GOD I HOPE THEY NEVER GET RID OF RESTED XP! Why would you complain about faster leveling? It's so awesome to log back into an alt and have that little boost. Or, to rotate playing alts so they get their max 7 days rest.

good lord, i wasn't complaining about the 200% boost in the rest bar. i was asking why don't they KEEP it at that all the time instead of having it drop to 100% after a time.read the entire question where i mentioned how bliz has done plenty to speed up leveling. considering they implemented so many ways of increasing the leveling experience, it seems logical to merely keep the bar at the 200% level instead of dropping it to 100%.i've always understood the logic behind having the rest bar boost as a reward for "resting", but if bliz is so eager to enable players to level their characters faster, they might as well keep the exp gains at the high level all-time.

I think what Sean was implying is that they should get rid of rested XP and make normal XP give the same gains that rested did.

Its actually a max of ten days worth of rest while in an inn.http://www.wowwiki.com/RestSee 3rd PP.

@listromIf they got rid of rested XP and just made the normal XP at 200% gains, wouldn't that make 200% the new 100%? It'd be faster, sure, but you'd still have a depressingly purple XP bar.

thank you lazymangaka. people are given a reward and then when that reward isn't there they feel punished. hullo? it was a reward, meaning above and beyond the normal. that doesn't make normal punishment. i think lidstrom still does not realize this. and @lidstrom, how would you implement the 200% compared to 100%? if everyone got 200% all the time, it wouldn't be 200% would it?

Also, the rested bar can encourage players to stop playing for a while to build up the rested experience. Stop playing and you know....go outside.

What is this ... "Outside" that you speak of? Is it near Outlands? How do I go to there?

its the side of outland... just go to the edge of any of the zones and jump off, you'll get there eventually

A little correction, the rested experiance is at 150%, not 200%.1038+519 ≠ 200% of 1038The tooltip lies!
