    Many really good changes! Can't wait to test it

    but..
    - - no xp tent boost??
    -- no information about changes in exploration maps?? Still pathetic rewards?

    The biggest isue balance still lie in exploration maps.....

    No farming of any kind. It wasn't an efficient way to gain experience if you didn't do it for 12 hours a day

    I'm just wondering...25% scrap will work with our current stock???

    I wonder what's going to happen if we get a x3 Scrap XP event? :)
  • SlickRickSlickRick Posts: 2,731
    @Amiga

    I would think most likely yes...it would be hard to code to separate between new and old stuff

    Answer is simple - no more such an event
  • General_PainGeneral_Pain Content Creator Posts: 2,457
    @Amiga I had the same thought as well
  • DaleDale Member Posts: 1,122
    ah. I should learn to read the announcements before I ask questions.
  • DoTakDoTak Member Posts: 1,964

    So no more farming, right? You only get xp for the first 75?

    :) I think I've only done 7.4 nm maybe 4 times ever and I've about had enough. At this point, I'll take the 30 gold for completing the episode over the mindless XP opportunity

    Call me clueless (it wouldn't be the first time) but what does "Protection limit has been removed" mean? Protection of what?
