Ok, I'm gonna get flamed unmercifully for this, but it won't be the first time. The old doublestandard of UOHall (well most message boards when you get down to it) is that when YOU are complaining about something, you are "voicing your opinion." When someone else voices an opinion you don't happen to like, it's "whining." It's all a matter of perspective, naturally. But I'm sorry, I have seem TONS of WHINING about Imbuing over the past week. Whining as in "oh its hard. Oh it's taking forever. Oh it's expensive." Here's a novel concept: perhaps you ***SHOULDN'T*** be able to master it within 48 hours. Because if you can, that means the skill is too easy. Back in the day it took weeks if not MONTHS to build to GM level in some skills. And you know what? GMing those skills actually MEANT something. You know why? Because everyone and their damn brother didn't have one. If this hot-new-fresh crafting skill can be mastered in a week, then it means nothing. It's not a journey at all, it's instant gratification, and it ultimately will be a hollow goal when everyone on the shard has a 120 Imbuer before even a month has elapsed. Please. Knock off the pancakes and moaning that you can't gain past 100, and its bankrupting you. Because I think it should have taken you a hell of a lot longer to even get to 100, not just a mere 10-14 days since the skill came off the conveyor belt. My opinion. Or whine, if you prefer.
