XP parameter[edit source]

Does it make sense to have the XP parameter on excavation spots? The XP seems to dependant on the item that you get, and not the spot directly. Thingummywut (talk) 01:22, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

This is the xp you get when you don't receive an item I believe. I think the xp received when you get an artefact/material/soil is also the same regardless of what you receive but not 100% sure on that? Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 10:19, 3 April 2020 (UTC)
It's unclear at the moment what value should be listed. I'm fairly certain I got different amount of XP when excavating the fort debris (which might or might not technically be a hotspot). Will check later for more traditional hotspots. Thingummywut (talk) 00:26, 4 April 2020 (UTC)
Update: Parameter has been changed so that it's listing success XP now. I postulate that fail XP is success XP divided by 9. Thingummywut (talk) 01:20, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
That seems plausible. Can you say anything about the xp for getting an artefact? ʞooɔ 01:31, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, managed to dodge the question for a while. I think there is one base XP value for artefact XP, and everything else is calculated from it: Uncovering XP is 0.5*artefact, success is 0.09*artefact, and failure is 0.01*artefact, all rounded down to 0.1 XP as usual.

Have you been able to verify this at all Thingummywut? Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 20:16, 17 December 2021 (UTC)
