goldsmithing guantlets will not work this weekend correct?

they will still work, they just won't receive the full benefit of the 2.7x multiplier

 

so gold gauntlets give a 2.5x bonus

so for the first hour you'll still receive 2.7x

but after that you'll only receive 2.5x, something like that

Wrong.

 

As confirmed in the QA about it they will not work.

 

As with all other xp boosters that do not work they IGNORE the boost and look instead to the bonus weekend xp.

 

So you'll start at 2.7x normal gold xp and go down to 1.1x normal gold xp regardless of gauntlets or not

Correct. We won't be seeing the use of Gauntlets, SC, BA Horn, or anything of the sort. Even the 1.1x overrides all items that give bonus xp. However, if you happen to use a SC tool, it won't degrade.

bummer ... what else would be a good thing for a lvl 60 to smtih that isn't too exspensive?

steel bars yield a small margin of profit even when superheated at the moment

aside from smelting/superheating, there aren't too many options.

I simply recommend you train something else for bonus week and save smithing for after the break.

The best training methods for bonus week are, typically, the more expensive ones afterall.

Won't you start at at 2.87x based on the formula?

 

((0-10)/7.5)2 + 1.1 = 2.87

According to the formula they posted, that is true. The reason we've been saying 2.7 is because they also said that "[w]hen you initially log in on the weekend, you will gain approx 2.7x XP for all 'normal training' activities."
