    So, the publish notes for pub 73 say:

    Alchemy/Enhancement Potions

    The above indicates, you could run GM alchemy, plus 75% ep and cap at 105%.

    I just tested it on Origin and the cap is still (30 + 50). I assume the +75 was a typo (it would be great if it was not).

    I think Alchemy would be a lot more useful if it was not a typo, and the system was just not updated correctly.

    Also tested it on TC and written it into the forums, 75 EP is not working.

    My question on that myself is, why after all these years does 100 points in alchemy still matter less for potions than the bonus you can get on a single, cheaply obtainable ring. It should be the othe way around....100 alch should give you 75% EP and the ring just a bonus on top of that.

    I agree with you Raptor.

    I gm'ed alchemy maybe 6 or 7 years ago, and have made potions in the past for personal use/experimentation maybe that first couple months after having gm'ed it. I don't want to come off on the extreme side of negativity here, I do want to say at least I'm glad they are doing SOMETHING with it.

    Anyhow, I feel crafting in general is going to need some overhauling more so than it has been needing with the upcoming publish, but we can keep our fingers crossed and see.

    Its probably a typo... EP (from items) has been capped at 50 for quite some time now.

    The new addition is that 100 Alchemy will always give you 50 EP which increases the skill a little bit. Not considerably cause those few who use GM Alchemy most certainly all ready use the EP (from items).

    The combined effect of Alchemy and EP is most certainly the same as before:
    30 (from skill) + 50 (from items) = 80

    I agree with you too Raptor.
    I never understood why it was backwards.
