This isn't clear to me from the article - is XP deducted from Patrol before or after the multiplier? If I earn 100XP and have patrol XP available, I should earn 150XP. Which number is removed from my available Patrol XP? 100, or 150? Distantantennas 18:03, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Updated...does that make it clearer? -- Aggelakis 19:27, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
I hadn't yet looked at the exact numbers of patrol XP remaining vs. XP earned to see exactly what the relationship was there. I do know if you have exactly one bar of patrol XP, it expires when you've earned exactly one bar of XP. Graphically, the earned XP replaces the patrol XP one for one.
Other things I'm wondering about but haven't had a chance to check:
  • Is patrol XP only accumulated in areas where no other day job can be earned? My scrapper standing in the arena lobby seems to be accumulating credit toward both Patroller and Duelist.
  • If you have debt when you log out in an "on patrol" location, do you work debt off with the patrol XP you accumulate?

  • The second was addressed in the original announcement. You get PXP, which is immediately used to pay off your debt. - Baalus Seth 21:42, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Ah yes. It's been so long since I read that announcement that I had forgotten it was already covered. --Eabrace 22:04, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
For the first question, there is no such thing as an "on patrol" location - this is why I removed that part from the article. If you are logged off, you are "on patrol" - in any location. -- Aggelakis 22:26, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
So it would appear. --Eabrace 23:42, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm unclear as to whether or not debt removed by elimination of PXP does or doesn't count towards the debt badges. If indeed, it does count towards the badges, instead of saying: "Debt removed this way counts as removed normally for the purpose of debt badges." could it be rephrased to: "Debt removed this way does count towards the completion of debt badges."?

Yes, debt removed by PXP does count toward completion of debt badges. --Eabrace 15:07, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Please clarify

  • Rate of PXP gain
  • PXP vs Influence/Infamy
  • Maximum PXP

Patrol XP and AE missions

I recently that one of my characters both started and ended an Architect mission with 21415 patrol XP. This would seem to indicate that XP earned in AE content is unaffected by patrol XP. Has anyone else noticed this? --Eabrace 11:05, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Correct. It does consume patrol XP instead of giving debt if you die, as normal. -- Agge (talk) 16:14, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Right. That I've also noticed.  :) --Eabrace 16:28, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
I was wondering about this. I was doing some leveling in the AE last night and got over a level without using up any Patrol XP (except when i died). This actually resulted in me hitting 50 with 270K Patrol XP left (which I hen converted to debt badge credit). CmdrAdeon 16:48, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
