Can someone please explain the rest/exp correlation?

#1alangstPosted 5/4/2012 3:17:03 PM
I've been searching, but can't find a good answer. What exactly is rest for? How is the % calculated? How does this effect the xp you receive?

Is this why the xp bar at the bottom of the screen is sometimes blue and sometimes orange?

thanks for any help.

Yes Blue is rested, and I think it doubles EXP for a set amount based on how long you were gone.

If you're in an area where you can get rested XP, there will be a little buff icon near your map iirc. If you mouse over it it says something about rested I'm almost positive. It's mostly towns/quest hub areas.

Edit: It's called a "Rest Area".
