Two things: (1) That was 26 orange XP drinks, not 26 red XP drinks. (2) My comment was listing the amount of XP drinks I got from 1.6k stamina. That’s 1600 stamina, or less than 27 Stamina Consumables, or about 42% of the stamina I get from the three free daily Stamina Boosts on server 2.
I’ll agree that we need too much stamina to level up heroes and (especially) enhance Battle Badges, but I’m specifically looking for evidence to support the accusation that PerBlue has lowered the drop rates of XP from campaign raiding. So far all I’ve seen are misleading screenshots used to back up a story so preposterous that, frankly, no one should have believed it, and statements without evidence about players believing they used to get more stamina from campaign raids. Memory is imperfect; subconscious biases will affect the recollections of even the most observant, conscientious witness. What little evidence I’ve seen so far supports Polaris’s statement that the drop rates haven’t changed; by all means, if you can find screenshots or (better yet) videos showing higher XP drop rates in the past, please share them with the forum.
