A few additions to test center please!

    Okay I don't really play test center too much, but if I have something in my head that I want to test out I'll create a character and burn runic kits and whatever to get the items needed to make the character but there are a few things that could be added to make things a bit smoother in the item creation stage.
    A talisman or a set of talismans that give the crafting exceptional bonus's for all the crafting skills but have it give more than is normally possible... say like 50% exceptional/success chance for fletching/carpentry/tinkering/smith. Because I must say it's quite a pain in the ass to re-create or just plain create some of the nicer high end items there... I don't want to have to burn through thousands of ash boards to get a decent bow or burn up a TON of time trying to craft a decent ecru ring.
    Also players are given a decent amount of resources for smithing but for carpentry and other things... not so much. There needs to be more boards and magical ingredients also.
    And maybe... just maybe a runic tinkering kit so I can make a bad ass cleaver.

    i agree, 500 boards aren't nearly enough to test out stuff.. i used those up pretty quickly when i decided that i should just sell my runic kits and let someone else be disappointed in what they made...

    a talisman tho would be nice.. maybe 30/30 in each profession.
    or a master one, special to tc.. 30/30

    its almost impossible to craft some of the stuff to test it out without one.

    also i love the fact that you made the chars hold more weight, but the bank needs some tweaking. it sucks to move things around and have them fall to the ground, to disappear in 10 seconds.
     
  3. Ya... we requested an increase in the number of boards from 500 to say 5,000 boards (but why not max out at 65,000?) and never received a response. I can't imagine it to be much of a programming change that it would take much developer time to do this.

    Yea more boards would be nice. When your trying to make things you go through them so fast.

    Better yet, maybe have it were you create your own talisman and bonuses. Make it where all you have to say is "get talisman", then to set the skill say "set talisman skill fletching", and then to set the other two just need to say "set talisman bonus 30 18" to get a fletching talisman with exceptional 30 and 18. That way you could try it out with a talisman that you already have and then be able to see what happens if you were to find a better one.

    Greetings everyone,

    We have increased the special boards to 5000. I am not going to promise we can put in a "special TC talisman" but we are looking into it.

    You will not see the additional boards until we republish TC1. We will try to do that this week.

    Yeah, I´ve been missing one of these as well. A costumizable would be nice.

    Maybe double-click it and get a small "crafting-menu" window where you fill in the skill and the two bonuses. And maybe even a slayer option...


    And Mesanna, about the boards... :bowdown:
     
  11. YEA! *hugs Mesanna* Umm, sorry... got carried away.

    I have another request...

    How about upping the intensities for monster loot on Test? I'd like to be able to use something other than the artifact jewelry and it's hard enough to try and craft something even halfway decent with the great failure rate of only GM tinkering and no talisman. That way we don't have to farm for hours on Test... just to get a useable piece of jewelry.... if that's possible =)

    Seadog, as great as that sounds... it'd suck having everyone walk around with uber leet weapons. I still like that you have to craft to make what you want. It's better then going into the game and bein in insta god-mode.

    Talisman would be nice because making a good bow or harder smithing item is a pain in the arse.
