    Ondal's Staff - A fact or a rumor?

    I've used the search function, and I didn't find my answer.

    Anyways, I've heard that the 5% EXP gained on the Ondals only works if you kill. Is this true, or is this made up to discourage leechers?


    IMO, I think this is false since no one complains about Anni :)

    The +5% experience from Ondals "works" whether you're actually killing or just leeching.

    Finding an experience shrine is much more useful, though, with 50% more exp, compared with Anni's 5-10% or Ondal's 5%. Just avoid curses. And dying.

    Teleporting around the open areas of act 1 is the best. In fact, it's better to spend more time finding an exp shrine and miss the first few waves of minions because the last waves give much, much more experience. According to a few tests I did, the experience from each wave (rounded to 5%) is:
    1st: 10%
    2nd: 5%
    3rd: 25%
    4th: 35%
    5th: 25%
    Baal: 5% (each of the waves drops 1% when Baal is included in the run)

    Oh, and a fair number of classes will do just fine killing minions with Ondal's; it's not like you need absolute top-end gear for that part of a game. WW barbs might not be the best, but any character that uses spells won't be affected by downgrading to Ondal's much at all.
