  1. I'm just curious whether coffee usage varies between casual and hardcore players, and whether coffee is reaching its intended target (casual players) or whether it's just hardcore players that have latched on to it. I am new at polls, but I hope I've provided a category for everyone.
  2. None of this was ever accurate or very helpful. See OR's thread:
  3. Ever been envious of those people that have insane HFC skills? Want to bump up your SD and ML from time to time without making a chore out of it? You contemplated about making pans and forges to grind HFC but you loathe the thought of having to make pans? Maybe you do not have enough room for a panfilling area? If you answered 'YES' to any of these questions then this auction is for you! On offer for today is the Speed Cook 9000! A forge integrated with the maximum number of pans possible (259), this baby can bump up that pesky HFC skill whenever you want! Also it is a great space saver as it is only one forge that you can hide (or put on display) almost anywhere: in the kitchen, in a barn or in a warehouse! (please make sure the rooms are well ventilated, you know - against fire and health hazards). Also with the easy naming schemes of the backpacks you can easily keep track of what you filled and what not. But there's more! All pans are improved to roughly 40 quality to insure that they will decay slower and you don't have to worry about decay much! Well if the quality suits you, you may even decide to use them for regular cooking! Here is a pic of what you will get Now here is a breakdown of the items that you are bidding for: 1x Forge (the Speed Cook 9000) 70Ql 259x Frying Pans ~40Ql 7x Backpacks ~28Ql This kit can be picked up from Q11 on Xanadu, more details will be provided to the winner Start bid: 7s Increments: 50c Reserve: NO Private bids: NO Sniper protection: 2 hours Buyout: make me an offer! Happy Bidding to all of you! Thor out
  4. Hello, I joined the game 6 days, 19 hours, and 12 minutes ago. I have only played 2 days, 6 hours and 36 minutes in that time. I have done some reading on the forums and have received information from some of the players that you are limited to how much experience you begin gaining around 70 fight skill. However I am at 55 currently and it has slowed down immensely. For example, at level 54 and below when I fought spiders it would give me about .25 experience per kill. Tougher creatures would give me about .30 - .40. However as soon as I hit 55, killing spiders alone dropped down to giving me .02 experience, tougher creatures would barely push .03-.04. I am brand new so I do not fully understand how the experience system works. I have heard some things about something called a curve however I do not understand that either. I know that epic gives you double experience as opposed to freedom, sleep bonus does not affect fighting skill, and that it is suppose to limit how much experience you get starting at level 70 fighting. Is there a reason my experience gain has dropped so low?
  5. Skill Tick Bug?

    Hey all, Something that I've noticed increasingly while grinding skills is that sometimes, I get no skill ticks whatsoever, often for 30+ minutes of grinding. I then suddenly seem to get all the skill at once. Most recent example: grinding normal fighting skill against horses. Didn't get a skill tick for well over half an hour, and then suddenly got hit by a load of skill: [23:57:08] Normal fighting increased by 0.792 to 45.793 FYI 0.792 is a massive tick, I'm normally getting 0.01s at 45 skill. It seems like either the client or the server is lagging in displaying skills. I seem to get it eventually, but it's weird and confusing when all of a sudden you stop gaining. Especially when you're in grind mode and are watching every tick like a hawk. Worst case scenario, the server isn't actually giving you any ticks at all, but then maybe catches up randomly at one point. I wonder what happens if you log off in the middle of one of these "update voids"... do you not get any skill at all or does it show up again properly when you log back in? I can recall seeing this problem for the last week or two, and have seen it on 2 different computers on differing accounts. I can definitely recall seeing the problem with normal fighting (as above,) large metal shield skill and channeling on my priest, there might be more. Anyone else noticed this? Thanks!
  6. There are a lot of conflicting beliefs and myth about skill grinding floating around So I tried to collect and verify what I could. When talking about skillgain you first have to be aware that there are two different values to consider: size and rate of skillgain size: this is the value that is displayed in the skill tab like " you gain 0,000526 mining skill" Some people also say they gain 526 mining experience, I'll use that terminology as well as it's convenient. rate: this is how often the skillgain appears in the window, not all mining actions give mining skill. To correctly judge this you have to make sure to set your skill log to the highest sensitivity. Then there are four factors that the player can influence: CoC - Enchant, WoA - Enchant, Tool - QL and Material - Q. All my tests have been done with mining, these are the results: Skills and Characteristics First, there seems to be no difference in the way skills and characteristics are handle, nor does there seem to be any relation between the two. When you have low skill, you gain a lot of skill, when you have high skill, you gain less. When you have low charactersitics, you gain a lot of characteristic, when you have high characteristic, you gain less. When you have 25 body strength and do mining at 5 skill you gain the same body strength as if doing mining at 70 skill. CoC - Enchant This one if obvious, it's a straight percentage increase to the size of skillgain. Does not seem to affect the rate of skillgain. Conclusion: always use the highest CoC you can affort on all of the tools you care for skillgain. WoA - Enchant This one decreaes the size of skillgain, but it also decreses the timer, both decreases are exactly equal in size. A 12s timer will give for example 512 xp and a 19s timer will give 811 xp, that's 42,7 cp/s for both. Does not seem to affect the rate of skillgain. So WoA has absolutely no affect on your skillgain, it will just change your material throughput. Conclusion: Use WoA when you want to get things done, don't use WoA when you want to preserve raw material such as high ql iron. Stamina Site note: Rolf himself once claimed that you get less skill when you have less stamina left after a longer action, but in the example above the 12s timer ended in 82% stam and the 19s ended in 74% stam, the gains were still equal. Tool - QL Two test values, mining rock with unenchanted pickaxes: 70ql pick: 12s, 582 xp, 82% stam, 48,5 xp/s 10ql pick: 19s, 921 xp, 74% stam, 48,5 xp/s The skillgain size is exactly equal! However when you mine for 100 actions it is quite clear that the rate of skillgain with the lower pick is much higher than the 60% increase in timers. You also get a lower average in rock quality though. Conclusion: Use a lower ql tool, when you want more skill. Use a higher ql tool, when you want to get things done or want higher ql mats. Material - QL Just did a quick test, when mining there is an obvious difference in base value between rock and different types of metal, but again using a 20 ql rock or a 60ql rock at 40 skill. has no effect on the size of skillgain. Rate hasn't been tested yet. Untested rumor: People claim that you get the best skillgain when your average result is half your skill. It's supposed to work with lower ql tools, it's more doubtfull if it works by using capped veins. Hope this helps some people. Does anyone have any complaints about the points I amde? And I mean foundated complains, not: "I read in the chat that ..."
