    Glad to see a new gold sink, it's much needed, even if it's just a replacement to the removal of macroing.

    nice patch, hopefully the essence screenshot is just an idea and not anything official as it doesnt really make sense. Hopefully rapid shot wont actually take "earth essences" and you just use the essences as they drop from scrolls now 1:1 and just reduce the frequency on a couple mobs here and there. If you keep the same drop rates and we need 5x the essences to craft a scroll then it wouldnt be too great.

    There is a disclaimer before the image :smiley:

    It would require "Fire Essences" not "Earth Essences". The recipe requirements themselves are subject to change, this was merely used as an example of how the system would work.

    Woow I'm super impressed with your attention to the community and the ability to quickly make changes. This is 10x better than the current scroll system and allows for much more diversity in acquiring and focusing on certain spells.

    Great job BPG!

    This looks like an awesome change! I like that the scrolls will require gold to craft and buff the alchemy crafting skill. My only concern is that some schools have only one or two spells raisable with scrolls, so likely everyone will have those spells maxed if there are no new spells added. Hopefully that can be taken into consideration. Again, great concept!

    Nice! Good course reverse because the scroll system implementation was pretty bad. It was like skinning/enchant mats but worse.

    How many points towards a spell will you get? The same as current?

    How many essences will drop off a mob? 1?

    This can be good or this can be a big grind. The first scroll system was easier than the second system and this system maybe harder than the first 2. Harder to skill up.

    If they just leave the ratio 1:1 its going to be the exact same difficulty if you were to level all the spells. If you were to focus on only certain spells then it would be better. If for some unknown reason they leave the drop rates the same and increase the essences by anymore than 1:1 then they are just increasing the length it takes by however many times(1 step forward, 2 steps back). But hopefully it will be 1:1 with the drop frequency staying the exact same(except for small changes on a couple mobs that have weird droprates)

    My only real concern is if some mobs drop essences like the current scroll drop rate than they really won't be worth farning. Some mobs you have to kill like 10 before you get a single scroll.

    If you have to kill 10 to get a single essence than x that by 5 to make a single scroll that gives the same xp amount as current scroll than that can be a big grind.

    I like this a lot. Reminds me of UO.

    Thanks!

    What was the ETA on this patch?
