Default Arena Bonus Problem

Alright, so I recently asked in civil if resourcing was interrupted by arena. The answer was no.

Say you queue for arena, kill a boss in nlake, resource, get double the amount of resources, unqueue, then requeue and repeat. isnt this an exploit of the double arena bonus without actually doing arena?

Thoughts,Comments,Concerns?

There's currently no benefit to being in queue.

You are wrong and i assure you this could be considered as an exploit but i never reported it cause for me 3 clicks is a lot.

Just Q before killing a mob and you can get up to 100% extra xp depending on your group acumen lvl.

If you want you can UnQ right after killing it so you never get to do arena but you always get the "group acumen" bonus.

So i ask you again, is there really no benefit to being in queue?

San is correct. You get same exp. bonus from being in Q and being grouped at moment boss/mob is killed. Glitch designed it this way.

However, I think Glitch was referring in his reply that there is no bonus to being in Q at time that you resource. Cause that double chance is based upon your 'double chance rate' %. Which, as we all know, is raised by recent activity in actual Arena matches. Double chance will occur at each toon's personal 'double chance rate' whether they are Q'd or not.

It's a teeny tiny exploit that's barely worth fixing

But if you don't want to arena and you do want the exp... LFSG?

Here is why this isn't an exploit.

1) The arena bonus is based off of the amount of arena matches you have done recently, not on you actually being in queue

2) The Bonus exp you get is EXACTLY EQUAL to the amount you would get if you were in a solo group.

Basically, its exactly the same as joining a group, killing a mob, leaving group, resourcing, rejoin group and repeat.
