Initial Collection gives Crafting XP

Post by Zimoon » Tue Jan 29, 2008 9:51 pm

I am leveling another crafting toon the slow way. Once I met Gendra I thought it was close to the starting point of the first collection so I went over and chatted the girl. She was willing to let me do the collection, "nice," I thought, "well, wonder if gives any of the posters?"

I can tell you, they did not, just the first badge, which possibly badge hunters like ;)

But, to my big surprise, I leveled one crafting level at the second part (the kill-3-kinds-of-Tuskens-for-some-data-device-parts). Third part I more carefully read the text and it reads Combat XP. Still, I both got saw the fly over XP along with the Hoo-ti-nii and I got even more XP when I chatted her the last time. I was so surprised I did not take notes on XP so I lack that piece but I will soonish make a crap trader just to check out the details.

While at this topic: It looks as if Gendra is more generous with XP than the quest journal reads. I will check that as well. Unless someone rushes away and do it before I do :P

Hmmm, wonder if its a bug, or they intended for traders to get XP from the collections? Be interesting to see if Entertainers get XP too?

Either way it was not that much, about 500 to 1000 XP I think. so in the end of the day ... I wouldn't bother telling the Devs ;)

I did some more testing and it's not just the initial that gives it. Any collection that says it gives "A small/medium/large amount of XP" grants that XP to you no matter what profession you are.

Before I posted the findings, I asked the devs if it was "working as intended" (and then said if it wasn't, please don't fix lol), and the reply was that it is indeed working as designed. :)

In fact, they said the amount of XP you get depends on your profession--which explains why it doesn't actually specify how much it grants. The amount a combat player receives is different from how much a crafter or an entertainer would receive.

I posted a note about it in the Gameplay Discussion on the official forums, I'll repost it here in this forum too :)

Great Onyx,

I must admit it isn't every day little Zimoon, and his in-game relatives, finds something undiscovered in this game :D
