I wish the double exp event will be longer though. Just playing the event for few hours with my friends and I had gained like 100+ paragon level for my 1k character.

Double XP is now live in NA, but don't get too excited: It doesn't work in GR's, and doesn't buff closing a GR.

In other words, only monster kills outside of GR's got buffed.

Are you sure about that? I did some greater rifts over the weekend, and I'm absolutely sure I was getting significantly more XP than before. At my current paragon and GR levels, I was gaining about a level's worth of XP, whereas I was only getting half a level before.

I think he might have misunderstood. I'm pretty sure I was getting extra XP from killing monsters in GRs, but wasn't getting any extra XP as the reward for completing the GR. It seemed that way, anyhow. I could be wrong about it.
Do not, my friends, become addicted to smooth jams! They will take hold of you, and you will regret their absence!

It appears I was slightly mistaken:

the short answer is that you're getting double your normal exp from monster kills in GR's, but that that exp is being double from a small initial amount.

You should also be aware that the exp event is for monster kills only, turning the GR quest in to Orek does not grant double exp.


So, it works IN Gr's, but according to that post, and everything else I've read on the b.net forums, it does not work for CLOSING a Gr:

Now, maybe all those people are wrong, I don't know. I personally stayed away from GR's over this weekend due to all of those messages stating it wouldn't provide double benefit on close.

It looked like double xp for clearing normal rifts and bounties and what not. The one 4 player level 80 grift I did earned me 3 levels.
Take this! And that! And some of these! And one of those!

That sounds about right. I didn't notice the closing XP to be any different.
