Thread: Talk to the Team: Biped Construction Schools

    Not sure where all the hate is coming from. Schools level faster when changed to primary skill. Miner/Gatherer level rate is unaffected.

    Not sure what made you think this was a dragon vs biped thing. It's not.

Then there are times I don't (like when building for coin) and wish to have all the exp applied to the construction school. Please don't limit my choices in this regard.
    Your construction schools would level faster if they changed it.

    The only thing that brough up the exp equalizations was comparisons of one biped structure vs another biped structure. There are some wildly varying exp amounts given depending on the structure.

    Again, not what this is or ever was about.

    The very first school given the Primal skill treatment was a biped school, Confectioner. Then Lairshaper, Scholar (pretty sure during the revamp), and finally Crystalshaper.

    You get about triple or quad the exp to apply items with this method, it more than makes up for the missing exp from the smelting, stoneworking, etc. I know I went from 85 to 100 DLSH just finishing a T5 Hall. 1 Building. At least I was actually building something.


    All that said, The existing layout has been in place for 12 years. Don't see why the biped schools need to be made easier at this point. Just fix the Human Clock Towers' crazy exp (probably needs lowered by 75% to make it match the rest of the structures) and be done with it. Dev time would likely be better spent on new quests/lore/epic spells, etc.

    I agree with above post that Dev time could be used other ways. I love the biped crafting. It's not broken. There could be more uses for the cloth tapestries and bolts, perhaps, but that's all I can see that's wrong. So, how about, after ALL this Time, some Tier 6 techniques? That might make crafters happy.

    I agree there should be Tier 6 Techniques. Improvements and changes can be used in other places than here.

    I have never been particularly fond with changing the construction schools for the most part they work just fine (although making the structures worth the same amount I think is a step in the right direction). However my biggest concern atm is there sheer number of bugs that have crept in over the last 6 months. And (this might be presumptious) but I think I speak for the community at large when I request that time be focused in ironing out those before changing existing (none broken) content.
