EXP Boots and EXP Bros Gloves DX question

#1KoopalmierPosted 8/26/2013 2:02:10 PM
I have both equipped for Mario, but both himl and Luigi get the same amount of experience in battle, even if I attack an enemy or win using a Bros. Attack.
How does that work? By "touching an enemy", does the description actually mean "getting hit by one"?
I'm just stumped for the Bros. Attack thing though... Or maybe the effect applies to both brothers?

The EXP increases for both Bros equally.

More villains need to be protagonists. BIS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

The effect of the EXP boots will trigger as long as the attack in question is mentioned as using the equipped boots. Counterattacks don't cause it to trigger, though.

For reference, the maximum bonus you can get from them is 50%, which stacks multiplicatively with the EXP Bros. Gloves DX and the Miracle badge boost.

I see, thanks. So I can level up both brothers without having to switch their gear every few levels, that's great!
Thanks for answering.
