  1. WurmNode

    Thanks for running Wurmnode, it's great to have it as a resource. I don't know if this is in the que for being addressed but some of the skills don't have progress graphs for example coalmaking, metallurgy and the body subskills. I'm very grateful wurmnode exists but it would be awesome to see those graphs as well. Also, I love that you can Zoom in etc on the skill graph but exactly how the zoom in function works isn't clear and its too easy to zoom in to a part of the graph that has no data points etc. I love that you can see the highest value people have for each skill, really nice feature.
  2. Can you COD to Dirk: -1x low QL kindling with 95+ CoC - 2x gold lump with 95+ CoC
  3. Holy cow Smilingcat, that's an insane cast power! I didn't know it went that high. You're a hero, thank you [10:32:33] Scrap wood, mostly useful for feeding fires with. It is made from oakenwood. [10:32:33] Circle of Cunning has been cast on it, so it will increase skill gained with it when used. [107]
  4. Someone should make a calculator of this if it isn't already a thing. It seems really complicated...
  5. J-Smith: imping gold statuettes gives you pretty good fodder for deed bonus.
  6. Wow thanks Chakron for running Niarja for so long, I had no idea it was one person behind it all, amazing. The skill tracker/compare have been one of the main reasons I keep playing wurm. Really nice to see your rank for each skill and the graph to see how fast you've been training etc. I'm grateful to have had this tool over the years but It will be missed greatly. The Wurm Team or someone else needs to get on this
  7. Hi Smilingcat, can you do a 1ql pickaxe with 90s COC? Let me know if 1 ql is not available. COD to Dirk.
  8. Is the Bakeoff past tense or present tense?
  9. With all the priest changes recently does anyone have ideas on what will be the best channeling grind strategy going forward? Chopped veg and Dirt still seems to be viable but I'd like to get peoples opinions. The thought of going back making rope or locks with RNG makes me want to cry. Dirk
  10. Just some thoughts and observations: Wurm cuts a deal with steam, steam requires or strongly suggests certain things/changes. Wurm sells out their loyal players for the possibility of a new player infusion via steam aka dollar signs. Looses loyal players for maybe some new ones on steam and possibly whatever Steam may be paying them. To see such a great game that I've been loyal to for many years go down the tubes over the past few years has been really difficult to watch. Unfortunate decision after unfortunate decision resulting in Wurm bleeding loyal hardcore players for years. It's like your favorite movie (thinking of the three original star wars) that they make a sequel to and then they ruin it by trying to appease the masses by adding a cheesy love plot or some "cute" idiot character that everyone hates (jar jar). Wurm has fallen into the same trap. If you're going roll something back maybe it should be the skill oils that make you able to get 100ql ore with 78 mining skill, or make it so that people from chaos can't come and screw up your server. Roll back all of the beautiful wood textures that so many people loved instead of the current ones that all look like the same bla with slightly different shades. Or maybe roll back the nerfed hell horse hitching feature. No amount of rewards or giving out of tomes for finishing quests will fix the fundamental damages that have taken place over the past few years. And while I'm on my soap box, I want to lament the publishing of WU, it fragmented the Wurm community which has never recovered. In the end I appreciate that Wurm is a business and that there are many competing voices advocating for what Wurm should be in the future. It just make me sad that a game with such potential should turn out the way it has, not unlike many a great movie. Rest in peace Wurm, follow in the footsteps of other once great games like Ultima Online. PS. And if you're thinking "well if they were loyal they wouldn't have left" I'm sure a lot of the people who have left felt betrayed that the Wurm they loved is no longer.
  11. Thank you Samool, that seems to have worked. Though I have to say that this seems to be an issue with Wurm not my OS. As mentioned above, recently I was able to open multiple Wurm clients. This issue started when I had to download a new version of Wurm Online a few months ago and is correlated with a Wurm update not an OS update it which makes it likely that the issue is related to Wurm not my system.
  12. In the very very beginning in 2013 I started off in Deliverance, SE corner near a friends deed. The hardest part was trying to balance staying a live long enough to build shelter and find food with decent nutrition. I didn't know how to farm, so no cotton, except from what I could forage/botanize which was really tough and slow going. I spent hours botanizing for healing cover bits and learned to have a million healing covers on hand at all times. Once I learned how to call the guards which was after quite a while, I was able to travel and mostly take care of myself. From there it was pretty much down hill. I eventually settled on Release with a new character and started a homestead in the middle of no where, which later became my deed. Those were the good ole days. I spent hours reading wurmpedia and trying to find public iron mines. I had to walk 45 mins to the one mine I knew on winding disjointed paths through dense forest. It was an exciting and amazing adventure every time I would log on. I miss being a noob. I called the route to my nearest clay deposit troll alley and spent hours clearing the route just to get there, good times.
