MY guess is around 2-5% at most (lvl 99/100)

5% Action Point Gain at level 99-100.

I equipped the artifact and it gives the 400 ap bonus stat, and his tooltip says 5% ap gain. But the ap stat doesnt increase. Maybe a bug or a tooltip bug like vorpal

I equipped the artifact and it gives the control bonus stat, and his tooltip says 5% ap gain. But the ap stat doesnt increase. Maybe a bug or a tooltip bug like vorpal

Sorry I wrote control bonus instead action point gain. Still it is not added to the ap %

AP gain stat from the book is not additive to your character's AP gain stat. I think right now what adds with AP gain% on character sheet (base, not including bonus) and what doesn't is inconsistent and possibly misleading. From parsing with ACT the Thayan book confers a multiplicative bonus, and I can definitely confirm the AP gain works.

For example, at 3% AP gain:

AP gain total = base skill AP * (1+char sheet AP gain%)*1.03

Icy Rays base AP of about 8 AP per cast. Character tested had 7.7% AP gain on character sheet

Base AP gain is 8*(1+0.077) =8.62 AP per cast
With book of the dead 8*(1+0.077)*1.03 =8.87 AP per cast which concurs with parses.
If it was an additive bonus it would have been 8*(1+0.077+0.03) = 9.54 AP per cast.

This is consistent with how the Sprite's and Sharandar boon #3's AP gain bonus works. All bonuses seems to be multiplicative with one another, so formula is probably something like
Base skill AP * (1+ char sheet AP gain) *bonus 1 * bonus 2... etc

It is there, but not too much.

I don't know about the AP gain and all that. I only have to say that those undead dudes are wickedly awesome! I wish they wouldn't disappear so quickly because it's a fun show.

The effect is really lackluster,

That said the stats are great and the AP gain is great. I could drop crit, arp, and recovery from my gear and I got more HP, Def, Dfl, LS, and getting tankier every day :D

I can give an accurate description when I get home, but I got the book last night. GS 13984. Equipped book GS 14462 (Pretty sure that was it, might have been 14426).

When I get home I will give the actual stat numbers it changes for me.
Not too sure what 166 Action Point gain means since I have only seen Action point gain represented in % .
