How Double XP Weekend Works In SWTOR

Lots of people want an explanation on how ‘Double XP Weekend’ works.  Today another explanation was given by the devs on the official SWTOR forums by Community Director Eric Muscoe.

My understanding of the system is that all of our boosts will multiply from the new base of 200%, so now is the perfect time to get those Legacy perks and XP boosts. I will show you why.

Let’s say you planned to level during the March to Makeb entirely through… Flashpoints.

200% base experience
+25% Flashpoint Boost
+30% Flashpoint Legacy perk

*THIS BONUS DOES NOT STACK WITH RESTED EXPERIENCE

Since both of the boosts are being applied to double base XP, they are also doubled. Do you know what that means?!

+310% bonus experience! That is over triple the experience.

Enjoying your leveling my friends!   TLDR, yes they stack and for the math nerds it is multiplicative on top of the new base of 200% (assuming I understood it all correctly)

So there you have it.  XP Boosts are especially worthwhile on double XP weekends.  If you’re really looking to break some speed barriers this upcoming double XP weekend, check out my powerleveling guide for SWTOR. Enjoy your weekend!
