Buff said 5%. Maybe its a tooltip error and it was really 20%.
Roll a new character and check.
I wonder if Cryptic forgot to lower the skill point rewards from tribble where they were increased to speed leveling for testing purposes.
It is 5%, that's both what the Veteran Rewards table shows and what is given in game.
I don't think they ever said that skill points were boosted for testing. Some players just assumed that. On the Tribble Q weekend they had right before launch I did decided to go for the rewards for both a Fed and KDF to max level. It was 8 hours for the KDF and 16 hours for the FED. However, in addition to the Q bonus, I also used 20% 8-Hour Skill Bonuses. There was no change since to skill points rewarded for missions.
