Adventure Mythic Bug?

Since I ascended my character, I placed an to my level 1 amulet. It says that

Picking up gold grants as much experience as it does gold

but when I pick around 3000 gold i just get around 90-150 xp , considering the Total Exp gain reduction from ascendance it is still too low, is that a bug or Im not just seeing something here

Please close, just learned that the cause is my hireling . Sorry for the trouble
