Is there a limit for the bonus experience % that you can get?

Say you equip

  • Cain's Laurel, socketed with a Star ruby +25%
  • 2 other Cain's set items +30%
  • hellfire ring +35%

This will give you 90% bonus experience, is there a limit?

you can get more then 90% bonus xp from a high level ruby alone, not including the "double gem stat" for leorics crown – Timelord64 Jun 27 '15 at 15:53

The theorical max value is currently (as of patch 2.0.1) +4682%:

You can test it here. With the simulator you can select :

  • The Torment level (1 -> 6)
  • The gear that brings +x% XP bonus (and the value of this bonus)
  • The gear that brings +x% XP bonus on follower (as the follower share 20% with you)
  • The number of player (1 -> 4)
  • If you have a pool of reflection, a shrine or an event buff active.

Note that some of those bonus are multiplicatives and other additives which is why your total +XP% can show different value for 2 differents 50% bonus XP.

Actually the cap is 1513%. It's impossible to have a follower in a 4 player game. – Novarg Aug 28 '13 at 9:45
  • Cains Set : 30%
  • Marquis Ruby : 33%
  • Leorics Ring : 30%
  • Hellfire : 35%
  • MP10 : 200%
  • HF on follower : 9% XP
  • 5 stacks of NV : (5 * 15) = 75 % (Thanks, Wiz)
  • Also get the 45% bonus if you group with 3 other people. Dont forget that this bonus is multiplicative.

So about 457% bonus to XP. When the expansion hits, there maybe will be better items with more MF, who knows.

Dont forget Nepahlem stack, I overpass +900% xp with 5 stack NV – WizLiz Aug 28 '13 at 7:20
