Once again, players of the RPG game are puzzled by a Diablo Immortal glitch. This time, the issue is randomly reduced EXP values obtained from enemies while farming. Some free-to-play games most dedicated grinding enthusiasts have been attempting to discover what is causing the issue, which is making farming less efficient due to random inconsistencies in earned experience values.
staplepies, a Reddit user who claims to be one of the games' top farming experts on the American servers and were among the first players to achieve level 150, wrote a review on the mysterious experience bug.
The examples given here are for the Shassar Oasis zone, but Staplepies believes that the issue has been tested everywhere, to some degree. Due to their high paragon level, their earned experience is already reduced from the baseline amount, and this is Diablo Immortals way of keeping a servers population leveling at roughly the same pace.
Despite this, Staplepies began to notice anomalies in the experience values that were popping up in their log. Dust Imps (54 XP), Drubs (48 XP), and Sand Golems (129 XP) are three distinct enemies that should be the only ones that pop up in the location when fighting non-elite mobs (Staplepies notes that the bug also affects elite mobs, but they have ignored them in their examples).
When things go really bad, you can see a series of increasingly bizarre numbers pop up, some marginally lower, such as a Dust Imp awarding 42 experience instead of the expected 54, but others dropping as low as just one or two experience for a mob. The bug can also affect the experience globes that drop randomly, and these don't necessarily match up to bugged kill experience values.
Staplepies also did a party test, claiming that the problem affects all players in their group but not at the same time or with the same values as each other. It is unlikely that the issue would be affected by party size or proximity, nor that the problem would be related to individuals at multiple levels (meaning that the higher the level, the greater the experience penalty).
Staplepies claims to have noticed a greater percentage of bugged experience values in some areas, and that the percentage of bugged experience values has varied at certain times of day. Therefore, theyre considering whether player activity in a given zone or server might be causing the issue, for example.
Whatever the cause, players who are passionate about farming are finding it difficult. This is one of the best ways for players to compete without spending as much money. Staplepies describes themselves as a low-budget player, but claims they can be among the first to a new paragon level for several days by being among the first to discover the cause.
