Some of the problems with recruitment into the In Game Companies and Settlements is there is very little in game benefit right now.

What we need is more mechanical benefits, companies are barely implemented to the point I wouldn't even call them at a Minimum Viable Product level yet.

We NEED Company Chat, preferably both online and offline messaging systems in the game. Settlement chat would also be very desirable. I can wait on Auction House improvements if it gets us these new chat channels, and this is coming from a Harvester and Crafter. We can't even tell who in our company is Online unless we use 3rd party tools (external chat programs) or happen to bump into them in the game.

Company Vaults IMO should be near the top of the priority list as well, or at least some method that allows us to transfer items between characters that aren't both online at the same time. Perhaps In Settlement Mail. (Like the mail systems in other MMOs but can only be received in the settlement it was sent from.)

Personally, I'm not a fan of the WoT for two reasons. One, trying to defend more then a couple towers starts requiring excessively high numbers of people, who will mostly be standing around doing nothing if it turns out nobody is going to attack the tower they are defending. Second, the PvP Windows are being used by some groups not for WoT purposes, but to give them an area for no rep loss PvP, with no intent of taking the tower. They go out looking for harvesters, or people on their own and just gank them. With how long it takes to harvest any reasonable amount of resource, sending defenders out with the harvesters will just make for VERY board defenders unless there IS an attack.

*sigh* I was really hoping it was a bug. Now to find some +3 Hide Sheets, my Armorsmith already used the ones I had. Perhaps I'll do a dagger instead.

edit: Or not, not a free recipe, hide sheets it is… well I do have 10 days before I need the achievements.

I don't know if this is a bug, or there just aren't any achievements for +4 crafting but I crafted several Steel Wire +4 (my last batch made 4 of them even) using the Steel Wire +3 Recipe and did not receive the Tier 1 Uncommon +4 Achevement.

If there aren't supposed to be +4 and +5 achievements that will make it impossible for anyone to advance beyond 7 without taking a second craft because the most you can get for achievement points is 22 and you need 25 for 8.

I posted this bug through the In Game bug reporting tool a week or so ago and it was suggested by someone to post it here as well.

I am using +2 Yew and Iron Splint on a Female Elf model.

My Hair is on my Right Foot, a Pant Leg is sticking out of my abdomen, a shoulder pieces is on my Right Hand. Most of the rest of my body/armor is also distorted/misplaced.

To be clear, this is not just me seeing it, EVERYONE who has seen me sees it so it isn't just my client acting up. (Ask anyone who has seen my character "Kattara" in game at Keepers, there are plenty.)

No, I submitted it via the in game bug reporting. Didn't think about submitting it in the forums as well, probably should have, I'll go do that now.

Any word on getting my armor fixed (I reported it a week or so ago.)

The update notes said that Blue Stock was being added, but I haven't seen it anywhere yet. I've harvested a lot of nodes and will continue harvesting nodes in different hexes but for now, I haven't found any and nobody has been able to tell me where to find it. Some have found a Salvage replacement on goblins, but nothing from harvesting nodes.

This, combined with apparently only one Tier 1 Common Apothecary recipe means advancing to level 3 Apothecary is near impossible. At least it wasn't too hard to get the Adventure achievements that Apothecary takes instead of the normal Crafting achievements.

This is the primary Bottleneck I have to making bows because I NEED to be able to make Weak Varnish. Heck, I even already have +2 Hemp Twine… actually I could have a +3 or +4, I haven't looked at it since it should have finished while I slept. At this rate I'll be making a +2 or better bow as soon as I can get the skill to make the Varnish.
On a side note, Hemp is dropping, but I am only seeing it in Trash nodes, not Plant nodes.

If my math is right, the level 7 crafting stat boost should be 0.208 and the gathering one should be .152 (+/- .002)

It seems to have been taken down. It was there earlier.

GATHERING!
@ Level 15, Experience is listed at 1,862 - No where NEAR what it is supposed to be. I am assuming 50949 for now.

I did the calculations, figuring out their formula for the xp curve (Unfortunately a crude method and not an actual formula I can post, sorry.) and the xp for level 15 should be 50,278

I'll see if I can calculate the correct ability bump for level 7

Oddly, I am logged in and can see it, did I somehow get added to the list? (Not that I'm complaining.)

Nice to see some of these changes, will do some recalculating on what I'm spending xp on to start as I won't need as much "extra" skills to boost stats.
