Jaerin, One thing I noticed is that you use the rollsetup alias script to make the trigger every time you use rollsetup. The problem I had was that I'd moved all of the roller stuff into it's own class folder and so every time I ran rollsetup (sometimes in the middle of rolling) it would make a dupl...

It makes more sense that a class mob is more exp because it is harder to kill. For example, if you walk up to Joe Blo on the street and want to kill him, all you probably have to do is stick the knife in that poor suckers back.
