    OMG! What an awesome little patch! I really love your initiative!


    • Magic School's now raise 30% faster from skill level 75-100 (this is awesome, it was way too tedious before)
    • Papyrus removed from farms and added to a few mobs (very fast change and a smart one)
    • Some new player tip fixes and additions (great foresight)
    • Removed the mechanic of linked spawns (this is a VERY important change, well done)
    • New Player Protection increased to 24 hours (definitely a good idea, give them a chance to get established)

    You keep speeding up all the skills, the main problem is getting the stats to 75. A mage can not even compete until they get 75 intel to get archmage and max stat. You need to speed up stats or people still wont play.

    We've sped up everything previously not just skills.

    The time it takes to get a stat to 75 is very long, weeks.... Meditation speed needs to be increased dramatically.

    I don't have a stance on this but I started 3 weeks late and I feel very behind on attributes.

    That is the main problem right now, if you dont stat day one, there is no wy to catch up on stats. Stats take waaaaay too long.

    WOooooooowow man it's seriously starting to click how awesome a change this unlinked spawn stuff is. Think about right when you start and there's 2 goblin spawns next to each other linked. Now you'll have double the goblins and half the downtime! That's huge, especially when it carries into higher-level monsters.

    Meditating online is faster than raising skills naturally. I went from 10 to 25 quickness at the start. I was using nothing, but archery. Yet, my quickness was already at 40 while my dex was at 25'ish.

    Naturally, it should be faster to raise anything and that includes downtime. Meditation has no downtime if you know how to make gold.

    75 int isn't that hard, people need to stop bitching that it takes a long time when they are only meditating and not actually casting.

    You made enough gold to meditate all week by only playing for 2-3 hours on Saturday and Sunday? You need to make a tutorial asap.
