Summarize your bug Sometime around the point of leaving EOS for the first visit to Havarl, I stopped receiving experience from enemy encounters. This is more than just the wildlife. I'm currently around level 11. First noticed this fighting 3 observers. Also fought 4 observers,. 2 nullifiers, and several assemblers and received nothing. It was only the 2nd time even running into nullifiers.

@Dokukaeru Thanks for the post. I think the general wildlife doesn't tend to give XP in my experience. 

As for the remnant, can you check when you're finishing off the stragglers of a group? Generally the XP is assigned per group of enemy, and you'll get the XP when you kill the last of a group. So, say an encounter of 12 enemies may have 3 groups of 4, so you'd get XP thrice from such an encounter. Could this be a factor here, or are you getting no XP from extended fights? 

If I'm chasing the wrong thread here, can you change planet and check if you have the same issue? Sorry if I've misunderstood and you've tried this already. 


Thank you.

I am aware wildlife does not give exp.

I will confirm that group was finished off again when I get home.
But the particular example is the edge of a cave on Havarl near one of the ingredients you find for the bar on Nexus.

There were no remnant left around and my exp did not change at all.

Definitely cleared the area. Definitely not receiving any exp. For more clarification, this is the entire pack of remnants before the scientists in stasis on Havarl. I went ahead and finished this quest and received exp for it after speaking Kiiran Dals.

Thanks for the extra info/detail. It seems the XP on Havarl is a bit inconsistent when compared to some other areas.

Is it just Havarl that has encounter issues, or will it continue to other planets after Havarl?

Is it something that is being addressed?

That was a fairly difficult fight for me at my current level. It took 4 or 5 tries before succeeding. I would hate to continue on Havarl fighting these difficult battles to receive little or nothing...Especially if it's something that would be fixed next week and could have just played multiplayer until such time.

Betreff: No exp from enemy encounters

Got the same Problem here on PS4... Killed every Enemy on the Planet and what did I get? Nothing :D. Recieved some exp from Enemy from a Sidemission but not always. Getting exp from Enemys is very buggy in the Game. It is not only in Havarl. I think it is on all Planets. Sometimes I get Exp from a Group, sometimes from a single Enemy and sometimes I get nothing. It is very frustrating. Hope the next Patch will fix it...
