The Auroralite Contraption

25 replies 170 views Edited Apr 4, 2012

The discription says it boosts the XP by 150% (which should be the same as 2-1/2 times), and I was wondering if anyone has tried it.

Sometimes these discriptions are tricky, and I want to make sure they don't mean it gives you 150% XP, which would be only half-again as much.

Even though I completed level 100 when 1.4 came into being, I'd still agree with you about their descriptions. If taken at face value, "boosts the XP by 150%" literally means an additional 150% of all XP earned, so I'd say that makes the maximum earned daily XP 1250. The REAL question is, can you COMBINE the contraption's boost with the boost from the hoodie? If so, that's a potential 2250 XP to be earned daily...

The discription says that if you have the hoodie, it triples your XP after level 55.

That would make leveling up to level 100 a lot less painful. I'm at level 73 myself.

Since all these effects stack, then, and a purchase of all the Aurora levelling upgrades costs $22.44 (this excludes Sky Fishing of course) -- with the the Auroralite Hoodie already at $2.99....  I really hope the XP Contraption is a more palatable 99¢, or no more than $1.49 at the most.  Pricey for a game that can never be played outside of Home.

I am at level 94. This level has been painfully achieved over a year of playing. I hope they extend the game beyond 100 levels. Otherwise this additional 'money making boost' just dilutes your achievement. WOW, I can  not believe I said that! At level 50 I would take any XP extra help I could get, LOL.I just got accustomed to making my daily Aurora pilgrimage.

Hi Kat.  I briefly popped into the store this morning before playing the monstrosity they have turned OrbRunner into, and I believe the price of this thing was $3.49.  You can't say nDreams is afraid to show how greedy they are.    DG

"Owning “Auroralite Contraption” will increase the amount of XP you earn when playing OrbRunner and Aurora Island Defense.


This will increase the XP earned by 120%.


When you also own “Auroralite Hoodie” and get to more than level 55, you will earn roughly 300% extra XP compared to not having either of the items.


(*You do not have to wear the items to get the XP benefits, you just have to own it.)"

I bought it and yes when playing the Island Defense it did boost my XP to 1250. I kind of wish it wasn't 3.49 but I won't lie and say the item isn't worth it(I actually found it a cute item to wear in home).
