    Probably silly, but a question about Empress band and BST.

    Occasionally I use Familiar on something tough or higher and plow through the EP's in the zone, usually when I'm about done solo'ing for the day or whatever. Now I don't normally waste my Empress on this, hence the topic, but I was wondering if the band also absorbs some of the penalty (meaning less bonus, less duration) and "dries up" quicker if I do this with it active?

    The band gives you a static amount of exp or lasts for a static amount of time. So whichever happens first is when the bonus ends.

    No matter what you do, your band is used up after 3000 xp.

    What he means is, is the -30% penalty from having a pet applied to the EXP gained from the ring, making it give 70% of the +3000 EXP => +2100 EXP instead, while the ring still shorts out after that 70% of 3k.

    But the penalty is applied before any bonusses (chain, ring, COR roll), so no.
