What makes me gain experience when I kill a mob? Sometimes I try to help other players and when I kill a mob and I gain nothing. Why? Should I engage the fight? Is there a minimum damage? What is the rule?

I found my answer here

"Furthermore, unlike even games with mob tagging and forced grouping, both players will receive loot from the mob all based on a separate loot table as well.

There is no mob stealing, there is no loot stealing, both players receive a reward, both players receive experience, and both get credit towards quest fulfillment.

It should be noted of course that this mechanic will have a limit in place. This limit will be that if a mob is below a certain threshold of health and near death, than the player that helps will not be rewarded."

It would be nice knowing what that "certain threshold" is exactly – stoldark Aug 31 '12 at 15:17
From my experience, it seems to be fairly tolerant -- as long as I hit the mob at least once I seem to get XP when the monster dies, as well as a chance for loot. – Chris Phillips Aug 31 '12 at 22:21
