Starting a thread to track on an issue I'm having with leveling a crafting skill. Looking for a sanity check here folks, please let me know what your experience has been.
I log in almost every day to do my daily crafting skills on my alts and have done so since StarFall Prophecy was released. I had several transcendent troves so I used them too (exp, token, skill sphere). On 4 characters all of their crafting skills were fairly quickly at the new maximum (525).
Then one day I happened to notice, as going through the daily routine to gather up craftsman tokens to get the new recipes, that one of my characters skills was not at 525. How odd I thought. Still some time on the skill sphere, nothing to fret about, it will tick up soon for certain. To be clear, I really have no idea how long it was stuck prior to this but I suspect a while as I've amassed many crafting recipes through this daily chore.
So in goes a ticket to support to which I get the following response:
Once you reach this high of a level, please be aware it can take weeks or months of crafting orange/yellow items to increase this skill, even when using items that provide bonuses.
To me, this doesn't ring true. Seems to me with the transcendent skill sphere a skill up per hard or even a double skill up was pretty common. Occasional skips sure, 2 tries for an uptick. but come on - weeks or months for a single point of movement? Hey, if I'm wrong please someone chime in and share.
So with the skill sphere still going I did a daily (orange) and crafted a few of the highest level (hard) items and still nothing.
Pinged support back on the open ticket hoping to get someone to check on this before my sphere runs out and got this followed by a note that support will no longer respond to my requests.
Senior GM Soulwalker ...as I said before, it is normal for it to take weeks, even months of consistently crafting orange/yellow items to increase a single point.
Please share your experiences with leveling up crafting. I know fishing is different
Not sure how it matters but its armorsmith that is stuck at 524.
