Specialized skills not working
« on: April 19, 2018, 11:52:50 pm »
Specialized skills don't provide double experience as advertised.
As much as I hope that would be a simple bug fix, would it be possible to have the skill points refunded?
This is on Dredge.
Please Mickey, I just want to be addicted again.
Also, my younger brother is going to quit if he has to reroll his character to get those skill points back.

Please don't tear my family apart.

Created a toon without spec, hit some stuff, recorded damage and recorded xp.
Created a toon with spec, hit same stuff, recorded same stuff.
The numbers matched.
Also, There are some things which give me an odd number of xp, which would be very difficult for something that is 2x to end up.

I just tested again: confirmed not working for Red Magic.
Me and my brother are getting the same for Run and Swim, which he has specialized and I don't.
I believe we used Throwing to test it the first time, so now we are 0/4 on having an xp difference.

I know its been awhile but let me just jump in here. Specing a skill dosent increase the exp gained, rather lowest the cost of TNL threw out the levels. For example and these are completely made up numbers.
AXE skill of 100 might take 1000 exp to get to 101 non spec
AXE skill of 100  spec would only take 500. Something along those lines.   
So in short, some one with a spec skill will get to 200 red magic faster then some one with no spec. Also on that note exp on casting self spells is a set rate i think.

I thought of that, but as far as I can tell the exp to next level is not affected either.
I tested with an 'other' spell, they were the same.

I decided to test this(not sure why) and mining skill levels faster when specced than when it isn't.  same amount of xp for same ore/fail spot, but lower amount of xp needed to level.  1 weird thing I did find though:

you get actual xp from failing to mine...bug right?

side point: I only tested mining because it was pretty easy to test...although if you think this wasn't enough testing I'd be willing to test farming also.

K its working.
It does indeed take 1/2 the xp to level up a specialized skill.
But it still takes 100 (not 50) xp for the first level.
I assumed it would be 50, and when it wasn't I threw the whole hypothesis out.

The world is whole once again!

Yup... Basically skills cost half TNL exp which basically doubles the exp earned.
