Special Uses

For additional information, see Skills 3.0

There are several special uses of the EXPERIENCE command for managing skill conversions and experience transfers that result from game system changes. These uses are usually short-term or are only available to a given character until the impacted ranks or bits are completely transferred or consumed.


EXP BONUS

This command is used to manage the skillset bonus experience pools which were created due to the changes in skills with the release of DR 3.0 in January 2013. Many skills were combined or eliminated, and any experience a character had earned in the old skills which was not transferred into a new skill was placed into bonus pools. There is a bonus pool for each of the five skillsets. Whenever you absorb field experience in a skill, you will also absorb an equal number of bits from the bonus pool for that skillset, until that pool is empty. Effectively, the bonus pools mean you are absorbing twice the experience for each pulse for as long as the pools remain. In this way you are essentially being paid back the experience you lost when the eliminated skills were removed.

The pools can selectively be toggled on or off to control when you drain experience from each. There is no time limit on using experience from the bonus pools.

Usage and Syntax

  • EXP BONUS: tells you the status of these skillsets, ie. how much experience remains in each.
Your Armor pool could fill one empty skill to 10 ranks.
Your Weapon pool could fill one empty skill to 24 ranks.
Your Magic pool could fill 7 empty skills to 200 ranks and one empty skill to 69 ranks.
Your Survival pool could fill one empty skill to 145 ranks.  This pool is currently turned off.
Your Lore pool could fill 10 empty skills to 200 ranks and one empty skill to 188 ranks.
  • EXP BONUS TOGGLE <skillset>: is used to turn each skillset pool on or off as you desire. When toggled off, no experience will be drained from that pool. This allows you to target which skills you want the bonus experience to end up in.
>exp bonus toggle magic
You will no longer drain additional experience from your Magic bonus pool.

>exp bonus toggle magic
You will now drain additional experience from your Magic bonus pool.


EXP SWITCH

For additional information, please see Magic 3.0

EXP SWITCH is a temporary command which is used to manage the grandfathered levels of the four new Magic skills which were introduced with DR 3.0, Utility skill, Warding skill, Augmentation skill, and Debilitation skill. This allows a player to choose for him- or herself the relative level of expertise in each of these new skills, by swapping the experience between them.

Emblem-important.png
The EXP SWITCH command will only be available for the first 24 in-game hours after a character first logs in after the switch to DR3. It was available globally for the first calendar week after release on January 19, 2013.

Usage and Syntax

  • EXP SWITCH <skill1> <skill2>: This will swap the experience between the two selected magic skills. Skill1 and Skill2 must be chosen from Warding, Debilitation, Augmentation, and Utility. The command will not function if there is field experience in either of the two skills being switched. You can use this command only for the first 24 in-game hours after you first log a character in after DR3's release.
>exp switch
To switch two skills, you must specify the two skills to switch using the syntax EXP SWITCH {SKILL1} {SKILL2}.  You can currently switch Augmentation, Debilitation, Utility, and Warding.

> exp switch Utility Augmentation
Your Utility and Augmentation skills are now switched.  You will lose your ability to switch skills about half a day from now.


The initial Magic 3.0 conversion looked like this:

Skill Percentage of Primary Magic Ranks
Augmentation skill 90%
Debilitation skill 80%
Utility skill 75%
Warding skill 70%

EXPERIENCE FIXWALL

This command was introduced under a previous iteration of the DR game engine, when experience still worked with wall ranks. Originally, the wall rank cycle for a character started with the first rank gained after the new ranks that are granted upon joining a guild. This meant that the absolute numeric rank at which wall cycles fell among skills within the same skillset were not synchronized. That made it hard to track when any given skill would hit the wall rank, and this made managing the optimal training of your skills difficult.

For simplicity, a change was made in the experience system to synchronize all skills so their wall cycles started at rank zero. This command was used to help manage that transition.

Emblem-important.png
Since EXPERIENCE FIXWALL represents an obsolete fix to an obsolete system, Do not use this command. It most likely will have no effect, but it was once believed to potentially cause issues with experience absorption.

Notes

  • A GameMaster once commented that given how frequently it is used, this command is extremely resource intensive, taking up an average of 12% of the system resources.[Citation needed]
