What Does GGS Really Mean?

    My char has 440 total skill points and 109.0 Peace (110.0 with jewels).
    My last 0.1 GGS was 7:45 last night (I am a compulsive record-keeper). It's now 9:05 pm, roughly 25.75 hours since last GGS.
    Stratic's GGS table indicates that at my Peace and total skill levels I should get a GGS gain every 20.7 hours (at 109.0 real skill and 500 total skill mark) or every 24 hours (110.0 actual skill and 500 total skill mark).
    I've just successfully Peaced 50 Cus and achieved 0.0 skill gain.

    Breaking news! As I am writing this, the 61st Peacing attempt (a failure) produce 0.1 Peace gain.
    So, for me, GGS means somewhere between 1 and 61 successes/failures you are GUARANTEED to gain 0.1 skill. It's good to know the system really works!

    In your case it seems to mean Gonna Gain Someday... [​IMG]

    Nah seriously, I´ve had that happen too sometimes. Nowadays I always use the GGS chart as guidelines rather than rules.

    Cu's with their buff up may be too high, I remember gaining real well & often on the Swoop & Changlings. A lot better then Cu's. (Look at Cu's barding, they took a wicked jump in their buff, were 105 + -. Now lol )

    Are you capped at 110 or higher? Jewely has either ... hidden your actual gain or caused you not to get it. Take the jewels off and try again. If I log my bard on for a ggs in discord, I generally have to take his discord bracelet off to just get the gain. Only time I can still get his ggs with the brace on is to discord something with 160 difficulty.

    in the box next to the text that says go (green text), enter GGS, then hit enter

    btw, the newplayer part of the link is just because that's the first link I hit from the herald to get the search box
