View Full Version : 110 tradeskill beta boost ?

10-20-2017, 01:20 PM
As the tradeskill questline is going to be delayed until after the new expac has launched, would it be possible to have a level 110 tradeskill beta boost so we test recipes ?

Given that the beta TS reward involves lvling up to 110, I'd guess 'no'. They want us to test the leveling up as well.<br />Especially since we already found a 'bug' with it...<br />For some reason they made the amount of TS xp required to get to lvl 101 over 17million... and the 'old' rush orders are giving only 15k xp.<br />Their solution, as shared in another post, is to make new writs that give 'more' xp. Until those are in we don't have a meter stick about how much grinding is expected., so the leveling process is certainly part of the testing.

Thats over 174 million... from 100-101 alone... and since you cannot use L101 writs (new content) until you get to 101... you would be looking at thousands of writs and 100s of thousands of mats (that the gnome will not give you, nor will the goblin). Yest it is a beta, but an oversight like that seems ludicrous.<br />P.s. You still need to harvest one of each rare in the overland, that takes several hours on its own.

As per the third post in <a href="https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq2/index.php?threads/rush-order-xp.581479/" class="internalLink">this thread</a>, please just wait on trying to level crafting until the NEW level 100 writ goes in with expansion-appropriate xp. You'll make yourself insane trying to level on old content. It is coming as soon as Caith can breathe enough to get it done.<br /> <br />Please, please, help spread the word. Caith's not had time to make a formal post about it, and it seems testers are only reading posts if there's a red name involved. :/

Also going to ask nicely here if we can please get a tradeskill buff to help test recipes. Right now, the weekly in Phantom Sea gives more experience than a level 100 tradeskill rush order. <br /> <br />I'm happy to try to test things out for you guys, but not at when it is going to take over 11 k rush order writs at the current exp level just to get to level 101......

So far, the /Beta copy has not let a single character through of mine that can do L100 writs, other than the carpenter... (yup the class with NO recipes in the books)
