There is definitely still some sort of xp bonus/penalty still in-game. My guess is that it is based on class if race has indeed been removed. About a week ago, I level a wood-elf rogue and a dark elf mage up from level one (no evolving weapons/leadership xp on). The woodelf rogue did eclipse the mage in xp gains over time, and it was definitely noticeable. I think that by the time my rogue had dinged 35, my mage was still hanging around at 33. There were no deaths along the way, and both toons were newly created and leveled together via aoe hate/ds. While I have no log files to prove it, it is definitely in-game if anyone wants to verify.

No evolving weapons were being used by any of our toons.

Rogues and warriors still have class xp bonuses, they were not removed like the penalties were. Same with racial bonuses for halflings.

Right, it was the penalties that were removed, not the bonuses, So human, halfling, and barb? should be bringing in more?

Every time I check, my merc is only taking about half of a portion of xp - I get 3/4 xp of solo instead of 1/2. My understanding was that it was divided equally among player, biased by level.

Barbarians used to have a 5% xp penalty the only good race I can recall a penalty for. The Bonus races were Human,gnome, and halfling from what I recall. Bonus classes were rogue/warrior. Edit: The difference in XP gains while leveling come from the way the penalties were dealt with. From what I read would it would cause too many problems to rework the equation so class/races which used to have a penalty now get bonus to offset the penalty instead of having had the section of hte equation figuring hte penalty dropped. It's not exact tho so some class/race combos that used to have penalties now have a minor advantage over those without said penalties.
