Addressing the no XP Glitch

We would like to let everyone know that we are aware of the XP glitch players are reporting and we are working to have it fixed as soon as possible across all platforms (Monday for PC & patch 1.04 on consoles in the following days).

At the same time we want to shed some light on the issue. First of all, it doesn't impact the game balance in any significant way. Also, you will be able to finish the game with your character achieving a level within the threshold we had in mind when we designed the game.

We hope this clears things up a bit. Again, rest assured, we won’t stop working on improving the game and there are more patches coming in the near future.

Apparently it's random and cannot be pinned down to any quest/contract type

UPDATE #1 FROM DEVELOPMENT

'No. The XP won't be added back for the finished quests. Sorry about this.'

UPDATE #2 FROM DEVELOPMENT

It will be fixed however. We are also looking into the possibility of gaining the missing XP retro-actively by the players. Can't promise anything here though.

UPDATE #4 FROM DEVELOPMENT
CD PROJEKT RED

Marcin Momot

1.05 is coming after the weekend. This patch will address majority of bugged quests.

UPDATE #5 FROM DEVELOPMENT

It may now be delayed until next week




UPDATE #6 FROM DEVELOPMENT

http://forums.cdprojektred.com/threa...=1#post1744055

We continue working on the patch. Can't give you the exact time it will release - sorry about that. Once I can share that info with you, I will.

Working on it as hard as we can. That's all I can say for now. Sorry.

What, does this apply for everyone with the 1.04 patch ? Haven't noticed that.

So this no XP thing applies to consoles too after the latest patch?

God damn, guess it's time shelve it until it's fixed.

I noticed this on PC, but I thought it was a certain quest that just didn't give xp. Looks like I'll just wait to play some more until the patch.

So we should not download and install 1.04 until the XP glitch is resolved? I don't believe I've run into that glitch yet. I hope I never do.

This really seems like an ideal game to wait for GoTY editions. Might hold off now until it's complete and cheap.

Does that mean I can keep playing the game and pay no mind to this issue?

The game throws such much exp in contracts and side stuff it really does not matter that main quests are not doing it. This will only affect people who are just rushing main quests and ignoring all the side stuff

Well, that means I'll play Bloodborne again.

Edit: Just the main quest ? Is that true, if so, I won't bother and play the weekend. I am level 20 and the recommended level for the main quest is 13.

Edit2: Is this a problem only on PC or consoles too ? I only have Patch 1.03 on my PS4.

So does this only apply to mainline quests and not contracts / secondary?

Pretty sure I've received XP for new quests. Done quite a few contracts and board quests since 1.04, and I've not noticed anything strange.

It doesn't seem to be every quest. Some freshly obtained Witcher contracts still gave me XP as well as most side quests, but a few story line missions would give me XP and a few others wouldn't give me a drop.

This wouldn't normally be a huge problem except monsters and human kills give like 3-5 XP so quests are your main source of experience.

Without being able to get XP from quests that effectively halts your character progress.

It's kind of annoying.

I'm level 8 finishing missions in Velen and about to go to Novigrad.
I don't think I've experienced any issue so far.
The game seems a bit easy though, I mean you're either overpowered if you're within the suggested levels or you just don't stand a chance.

The amount of XP you get in Acts 2 and 3 is nuts. I started out Act 2 at level 23 and by the time I finished it in a few hours, I gained 5 levels.

Yep pretty much. I've been doing so much side content I didn't even realize main quests were bugged. I'm still leveling like crazy and am above the recommended level for my main quests

well, what happens when you plow through a bunch of content with no exp and aren't leveling up enough to do the next set of quest that are aimed at higher levels?

Another reason to stay on 1.03. Seems like I really dodged a bullet by sharing the purchase with my dad and let him have the GOG Galaxy code. Manual updates ftw

That has already been refuted by others. There are some who are not patched that far and are still having the bug.

Wait how does this work, it's a glitch that happens on all the people who got 1.03 on PC or happens under certain conditions? I think I'm doing most quests that I picked some days ago, do I didn't really noticed anything.

Hopefully I get hit with the bug once or twice this weekend before they fix it.

What is the source for this? I saw that it won't fix quests that you finished but I can't find the mention of quests being picked up pre/post patch.

Agreed. I'd say they need to roll back the last patch but apparently they also can't patch the game in a way that doesn't break saves if you roll back.

Blame Sony and MS, not CDPR. This issue just popped up and every patch that goes to the PS4 and Xbone has to go through the verification process which takes a week.

Even though I notice the occasional main mission not giving me xp, Get Junior being the most obvious because I was expecting to level off that one, I'm still at a higher level than where I'm at in the story so it's not affecting me at all.

It makes perfect sense on consoles. It's not up to CD Projekt Red when it releases. All patches have to go through certification by the platform holder. PC patch is only 3 days from now

XP bug is happening across all 3 platforms at the moment (PS4,PC and Bone).
