But if they buff it so that it basically is same as gathering, no one will ever need to gather again since you can both skill/stats AND gather all mats while pveing.
"Our title system is an expansion of the titles in the same spirit than the destroyer title. These will NOT be classes and will be completely optional."
The current rates seem okay to me nothing special, but a nice little boost to resources as you farm to cover some of gear usage.
I dueled him once and was in control first half of the fight and then food buff wore out and not noticing lost, so he did win but hes by no means any better a player than I.
I disagree with increasing drop rates of wood, iron ingots and other crafting ingredients that would normally need to be processed by a player from raw resources. It's a hit on the players who have titled into labourer and are trying to market the goods. It's more hurt on what should be an important element of the player-driven economy.
If you want quick progression, join a guild or put up the gold.
Nobody said anything about "quick progression."
I said that compared to semi-AFK mining, actively playing the game yields an underwhelming reward. I can get between 1.000 and 1.500 Iron Ore from 1 hour of semi-AFK mining nodes with a single char. Compared to the 100 Iron Ingots I got from 1 hour actively farming mobs with the highest yield. This is extremely unsatisfying and as said before, simply wrong.
Actively playing the game should reward you most. Not standing around and literally doing nothing.
You may not have said the words, but certainly the whole point of your suggestion is to make it quicker/easier/cheaper for you to get the mats you need to progress your crafting skills, which obviously quickens progression.
Is your next request to eliminate time in crafting because it forces you to go afk and is thus unsatisfying to you?
It gives them a rewarding way to interact with the game when [...]
So be active, hunt mobs, earn gold, and just buy the materials you need.
But you certainly can't and shouldn't expect to be self reliant, and that's what your request would be moving the game towards.
