  1. I understand this may be a known issue and being worked on but I don't see it posted anywhere. Just made my Christmas tree today, Jan 1, and got my stocking. Placed it on the wall no problem, but there is nothing inside. My understanding is that we had until the 9th to collect the presents inside the stockings.
  2. I did it!

    A wonderful achievement, congratulations!
  3. 2007 for me with a few breaks, some longer than others. What everyone before me has said I totally agree with. Probably the one most treasured thing that hasn't been mentioned is that even today, with our improved tools and a lot of experience, I can still get so totally lost I haven't a clue where I actually am. As annoying as it can be, this is a gift beyond measure since I actually have to think and pay attention.
  4. Will be missed. Rest in peace.
  5. No, you can't make 100ql coal from piles. 90ql coal is doable but hard and you need ultra high skill, the best ql mats plus some luck. Not really possible in bulk. 85ql is about the highest in bulk that is reasonable in my view. 75ql is quite reasonable to make since can use oak piles and get that ql without too much trouble if the mats are decent ql.
  6. So sorry this happened. A terrible terrible time. My prayers and thoughts are with you.
  7. The thing about mining and digging is that skill = what slope you can work on. Hence after 13 years of playing my mining is still stuck at about 80 but my digging is well over 99 since I wanted to work 300 slopes. Is kind of the way I play, just play and get whatever skill comes unless need to hit a certain skill level for some reason, then got to sort it out. Explains why my blacksmithing is also only 80 but my fine carpentry is well over 99. I needed the one, didn't need the other. So, to answer OP question, just playing the game probably not going to get super high skills unless your "game" is just doing one particular thing a lot. However, you can get along just fine and once you are at the stage you really want to skill something, shouldn't be a real issue figuring out how to do so. Bottom line, don't see a problem myself.
  8. I just dump them all in the bsb for this test. Could certainly raise the numbers a bit if sorted.
  9. Updated results for 97 and 96 ql. Wemp used: 2500 @ 100 ql Ropetool: Supreme oak 97 ql, 100 imbue repaired and reimped frequently Average ql: 78.08 Favor produced: 30,465 or 12,186 per 1000 wemp Comments: Imping was very reasonable Wemp used: 2500 @ 100 ql Ropetool: Supreme oak 96 ql, 100 imbue repaired and reimped frequently Average ql: 78.06 Favor produced: 30,450 or 12,180 per 1000 wemp Comments: Imping was easy. Surprisingly close to the 97ql test. Note that my skill has increased from about 96.14 to 96.25 over the course of doing these tests. One more test to do at 95ql.
  10. Got what I need for now, thanks.
  11. Played a lot over the years. I like depth but I must say, I still haven't found the time to go fishing since the change and it used to be something I did regularly--now nothing. Cooking is a bit different, since the new depth didn't stop the old methods from working. I still cook pretty much as I always did but if I need something special, I order delivery. Doesn't mean I'm opposed to depth in any way, just that for myself, there seems to be so many other things I always want to do that now I never fish at all... One day I'm sure I'll find the time to explore the new systems, someday. In that sense I think the cooking model is better than the fishing model. I still cook. I do not fish.
  12. still looking for wemp. 100ql is great but 90+ ql works as well.
  13. I run with 3 toons, main, Mag and Vyn and consider them a team and have all three premium at all times. I was somewhat unusual though in that I invested a ton of skilling into my priests before I priested up. This makes them very useful for many things. Indeed, it is actually quite rare for them to be working as priests. For example, this morning I was out picking cherries. My Vyn drove the wagon and tried to do the fighting to clear the endless trolls and crocs. Could have picked the cherries as well if I had wanted, but used my main for that. Yesterday, it was making kindling. Other days it is bricks or mortar. No end of basic tasks that can be done just fine. Can't recall the last time did a coc or woa cast to tell the truth-even though have benediction and 93 channeling. My Mag is often out making deliveries or helping out with various mines that need fixing up. Failing that, there is always mining to be done. There is so much that they can do to support almost everything that I feel that I could easily run either of them as a main as part of a village and I may even do that someday for something different.
