to accomplish that? I have changed some affixes to be 140-200 xp per kill, so that each of those changed pieces of gear now give 280-400 extra xp per kill, but is there a way to do this so it is always relevant?
After a few more paragon levels the extra 400 xp per kill is mostly useless and I have to change the items again and eventually have to use up another affix slot so that it helps go up levels faster. Soon all the affixes would be nothing but xp per kill.
Hope this makes sense.
Maybe I'm just missing something very easily adjustable. (PS3)
Thanks for any help.

on the infernal helm add 6 affixes of 140-200 add sockets to it and add 140-200 to rubies

so on the one helm you have
140-200
140-200
140-200
140-200
140-200
3 sockets
140-200
140-200
140-200
140-200
35%
41%
41%
41%

lets do some math using the lowest roll

100% * 1,260 xp per kill + monster XP * 1.58%

lets say monster XP is 1000

100% *( (1,260 + 1000) * 1.58)= 2840 xp for 1 kill using 1 item

Ok now lets see here you have 2 rings and an amulet

Hell Fire ring set up the same way that's another 35%
and 1,260 xp per kill

Leorics signet is another 35% and 1,260 xp per kill

and I'm sure you can figure out the rest 3-4 pieces of gear can net you quite a bit in the way of experience.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/artisan/blacksmith/recipe/cains-insight this grants 50% so change the helm and the math a bit but it makes it higher

Thanks very much for that...I hadn't thought of using Cain's set or my Hellfire ring.

I'm now using Cain's insight (+50% xp for set) with 3 sockets and a hellfire ring (+45%) with 3 sockets and everything is like you said with one exception...

the "add 140 to 200 to rubies".
When I change the "none" affix on the gems to "140 to 200 xp per kill" nothing changes.
I added that affix to all the slots on the gems that are inserted into the helm and ring, but I don't see any results.

Other than that issue this does help with XP quite a bit, thanks.

PS Can I add affixes to gems if I'm on PS3?

If you notice in the lines posted there is 7 affixes for the helm and 1 affix for each gem. So yes you can add one affix to the gem. If you do some reading you will find the answer to this question quite quickly. Or just play with the editor a bit and the answer will jump off the screen at you. Note it is not the 6 main affix's.

Ok,
I finally got it....thanks for all your help.
It took a few tries once I had the idea of where I was supposed to be making the changes to get it right, but everything's good now.
Thanks again!

Why are you trying to add xp in-game? You can change your level in the editor!
