I'm playing Nightmare mode right now and I had gotten a 45 massacre kill, one of the bigger ones I have gotten, especially on Nightmare. Only problem was that I only got +40 bonus experience.

Why in the world would I get so little experience for so many kills?

You only get experience from the bonus for enemies that give experience as normal kills. Summoned, resurrected, or low level enemies do not give experience, and therefore would count towards a massacre bonus, but would not contribute to the experience bonus.

Guess that makes sense then, I was trying to kill a bunch of those yellow robed guys, and they had one of those yellow glowing monsters in a shield that kept summoning those weird crawling monsters. – C-dizzle Jun 25 '12 at 13:33
