Average experience from raids:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Attack - Attack button (1, 5 or 20)

Buffs - tactics applied

Min.E - minimum amount of exp if all tactics will trigger

Min.E - maximum amount of exp if all tactics will trigger

AV.E/hit - Average experience per hit

AV.E/SP - Average experience per skill point (1 stam = 2 SP, 1 Hon = 1 SP)

*In honor raids it doesn't matter which type of attack you're using (1, 5, 20), they yeld the same amount of AV.E. But in stamina raids the difference is clear - 20-stam attacks gives you the most exp.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Calculations:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the amount of experience you get from raids:

Currently we have three buffs (tactics) that could affect the amount of experience we receive:

Pursuit of Excellence (PoE) - doubles the amount of exp

Lightning Assault (LA) - gives a chance to trigger another attack without additional stamina cost.

Take a Chance (TaC) - doubles the amount of exp (or gives extra damage bonus, credits)

According to Rafael's tactics theorycraft, the proc rates (for exp only) of those tactics are:

I've calculated the average experience from raids by using the following formulas:

Exp without buffs:

Basic AV exp = (Max exp - Min exp)/2 + Min exp

Exp with PoE applied:

AV PoE exp = Basic AV exp * 0,965 + Basic AV exp * 0,035 * 2

Exp with LA applied:

AV LA exp = Basic AV exp + Basic AV exp * 0,042

Exp with TaC applied:

AV TaC exp = Basic AV exp * 0,981 + Basic AV exp * 0,019 * 2

Exp with PoE & LA applied:

AV PoE & LA exp = AV LA exp + AV PoE exp - Basic AV exp

Exp with LA & TaC applied:

AV LA & TaC exp = AV LA exp + AV TaC exp - Basic AV exp

Exp with PoE & TaC applied:

(This one's a little bit more complicated - there is less than 1% chance they'll trigger at once (exp x 3) and more than 99% chance for seperate effect)

AV PoE & TaC exp = (AV PoE exp + AV TaC exp - Basic AV exp) * 0,999335) + Basic AV exp * 0,000665 * 3

Exp with PoE, LA & TaC applied:

(I'm assuming there's 50% chance PoE & TaC will trigger at the same strike and 50% chance they'll trigger at different LA strikes)

AV PoE & LA & TaC exp = 0,5 * (AV LA exp + AV PoE & TaC - Basic AV exp) + 0,5 * (AV LA exp + AV PoE exp + AV TaC exp - 2 * Basic AV exp)

When we finally have AV exp for different tactics applied, we have to divide it by the number of skill points (SP) used in the attack.

1 stamina attack = 2 skill points

5 stamina attack = 20 skill points

20 stamina attack = 40 skill points

1 honor attack = 1 skill point

5 honor attack = 5 skill points

20 honor attack = 20 skill points

This way we getAV.E/SP- experience per skill points

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Conclusions:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Conclusion 1: The best tactic for experience is LA, PoE takes the second place and TaC is the third.

Conclusion 2: Stamina is best for experience, but only it you're using LA, PoE and Tac together. Otherwise energy is comperable.
