SPEC HELP!!

I just received my monthly challenge at level 70 and at this point was like “whatever, it’s been too long waiting so I don’t care.”

But then I just realized that after seeing the experience still add to my account, I was receiving it even though I could not use it.

Does this mean that if I get my specialization code today, that I will not be able to rank up as much because of all the xp I am earning now (even though it doesn’t count towards my level)?

Basically, my question is, is this amount of xp I earn going to effect the experience cap limit I have for today? If so, then this game is garbage.
