Skill level dropping, no more?

patshirpatshir PortoviejoPosts: 114Member

Well, while in the game chat I asked how long a skill has to be unused to start going down and two people told me that the unused skill level going down is not part of the game anymore. How true are these statements?, I am new in the game (about 20 days) and I don't know if I miss this information. Nothing would make me more happy than this being true.

    It is 100% true. Small correction though, it was never added to DarkFall.



    Instead of skill detoriation, Aventurine took the path of Specialization.

    Specialization? Could you explain please?

     Skill deterioration was a bug that existed for some players that was fixed. If your skills were going down, I suggest you send in a support ticket. it was working for some players, but was not supposed to be integrated into the system yet.

    And yes, I believe it was ultimately canned in favor of specialization.

    It has never been this way. It was coded into the game but not turned. Something like this would be good to help create player builds instead of everyone does everything kind of play that exists right now.

    AV have stated they dont wanna cut any content from anyone, thats why everyone is free to try anything.

    But just because your character happens to own a bow, does not mean he/she is a archer. When you spot a real archer in DF, you know it. Same with melee and magic.

    We see that all the time, some player have build up skills and stats but no playerskill. Maybe found a bugged mob to train skills on, wich will do no help later.
