    I sent in a ticket If this really is the case I better get what I have used back since I think I have 47 scrolls left and I would agree they do not seem like they are working!

    Man after all the years of seeing you on these forums i wud have assumed you know by now how the xp works by now, guess i wud be wrong. The scrolls work just fine this debate is an exact repeat of the 1000% xp buff weekend one which is also where it was explained in detail how and why so i wont waste my time doing the whole explanations again, for anyone interested you can search for the original thread about 1000% xp not working.

    Anyhow to cut things short, scrolls work as they are expected to by anyone who actually understands how xp buffs in this game stack and work, gl and have fun grinding.

    They seem to be working for me, on combat dummies.

    At Level 60 with 67% XP and 18 skill points...

    I used a 180min one with a pair of 3 hour books; and when it was over, I was at 72% XP and 31 skill points..

    I then bought another pair of 3 hour skill books and went again without using any of the 530% buffs.

    When that one was over, I was at 73% XP, and 32 skill points.

    Went another 3 hours without any buff, and again when it was over, I was at 74% and 33 skill points.

    So it seems with the 530% over a 3 hour period on the combat dummies; I got 13 skill points and gained 5% XP.
    Without it, during a 3 hour period on the same dummy, I gained only 1 - 1.5% XP and 1 skill point.

    I've used +530+200+100+100+10+10+10 ... and you know, I didn't feel any big difference compearing to +200+100+10+10+10. Same 4% per hour of grind.

    exactly they are not working on mobs what so ever on a training dummy maybe but it specifically says the scrolls give 530% combat exp and skill points

    here we go again with this ....

    530% does not mean 5.3 times the exp you normally get

    200 daily , weekend, bell, book, food , villa, pet, bs energy, bla bla, add on top of that the scroll, in the end it wont even double your normal exp

    It should mean 5.3 times because that is what 530% literally means.

    They works and Jenses has right.

    Its 530% of points of XP what gives you a monster not a whole EXP what you get for example per hours. Its like for example:
    1 mob gives you 0,000000123 EXP so with 530% its 530*0,000000123 EXP per monster so its not a big different. But still it gives you nice bonus.

    For me it is on dummy 0,050% per 1/2 hour more than with 200% (i compare it just between these 2 buff, no others buff pop up just VP bonus).

    They work :)
    I get more EXP with 530% than with 200%, but its not x 2,65 EXP more (what you logically expect):

    - with normal 200% EXP buff: 1 hours at ronaros gives me around 0,800%
    - now with 530% I get 1,2-1,4% (not 0,800 x 2,65)
    - with 1000% I get around 1,8 - 2%

    as you can see Its different but not huge as you imagine.

    They work. Every exp buff applies to the BASE rate. The naked base rate is almost impossible to achieve because there is always some kind of buff, like titles, bells, food, costume, etc.
    If your base rate is 0.100% per mob and you add a 50% exp buff, you will get 0.100% + 0.050% = 0.150%.
    Add a 200% and you will get 0.100% + 0.050% + 0.200% = 0.350%
    Add a 500% and you will get 0.100% + 0.050% + 0.200% + 0.500% = 0.850%

    This means by stacking the 500% on top you will only get roughly 2.5 times more exp compared to scenario 2.

    It saws on the books when you pop it that it won't stack with scrolls

    I'll copy and paste my answer to a similar thread here:

    You have to apply the 530% boost to your base EXP gain. This base EXP gain is the EXP gained without any active boost, such as the 200% daily boost, Milk Tea, Book of Combat etc..

    To correctly apply the 530% EXP boost, you'll need to calculate your EXP gain without the boosts from other sources, such as those mentioned above, apply the 530% and then add this to the usual EXP gain with your other boosts activated.

    Example: (I apologize beforehand for mistakes I may have made in the calculations below)
    • I am doing 0.100% EXP per one mob. But this is with the 200% daily EXP boost, 20% from Magic Crystals and 50% from a Book of Combat, which is a bonus of 270% EXP in total.
    • Calculating (0.100% * 100 / 270%) would equal ~0.037%, which is then my base/raw EXP gain per mob.
    • Only now, I may apply the 530% boosts plus the boost from other sources. In my case, that'll be a total of (530% + 200% + 20% + 50% = 800%) bonus EXP, resulting in a total EXP gain of (0.037 * 800 / 100 = 0.296%).
    ==> That'll be a 0.296% EXP gain per mob with the 530% boost and all the other active boosts.

    by that great logic, the 50% scrolls mean, you get only 0.5 times the XP you get without them? hahaha.

    it means +530% added, that'll be 6.3 times of the base XP.

    but because nobody grinds with only base XP, but with several 100%s of increase you end up with e.g. 1000% vs 500%.

    The scrolls or any bonus XP, the higher level you are the less you will notice the difference. It's all about rounding the XP you get per mob.

    A player who is level 58 fighting red mobs is going to notice a bigger increase than a level 61 fighting grey/green mobs. It's all relative to the xp per mob total. It's all about the xp rounding up or down.

    I do not run many buffs when(rarely) I grind. If I have one I use it if not I do not as I will not buy scrolls or kama. By the way the 50% buff means base plus 50% which should equate to one point five times experience gain. 530% should mean base plus five hundred and thirty percent ie plus 6.3 times xp gain

    Also remember each xp bonus is calcualted on the base xp per mob, not totalled, So it is 200% x 0.00000175, then 533% x 0.00000175, then 50% x 0.00000175. Each of those calculations probably round down. So you are not getting 783% of your total xp gained.
