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?

The theorical max value is currently +1513%:

You can test here http://d3xp.weebly.com/home2.html. With the simulator you can select :

  • The Monster Power (1 -> 10)
  • The level of Nephalem Valor (1 -> 5)
  • 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)

Once its done you have the final value of your +x% XP. Note that both Nephalem Valor's bonus and Number of player's bonus are multiplicative. Note also that you can't have a follower in a multi-player game (Thanks Novarg for pointing that out)

Source : Diablo 3 1.0.7 changelog : Here you can find the new base value of +x% XP depending on the monter power level (MP 1 = +25%, MP10 = +510%)

Quick example on why Nephalem Valor bonus being multiplicative is important :

500% base (items + MP Level bonus + follower bonus) + 1 stack of neph (* 1.15) = new bonus exp of 575%
500% base (items + MP Level bonus + follower bonus) + 2 stack of neph (* 1.3) = new bonus exp of 650%
….
500% base (items + MP Level bonus + follower bonus) + 5 stack of neph (* 1.75) = new bonus exp of 875%

If it was additive you would have 500% base + 15% (level 1) = 515%, +30% (level 2) =530% etc. Which is really less.

When I play MP10 with 5 stack of Nephalem valor, I always reach ~+1050% XP bonus. This come from Nephalem Valor being multiplicative and not additive. You could even reach more with 4 players.

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.
