    I don't like the change to the Artisan's Prize, though. Having it start off at 75% of max was a boon to doing it. Now............. eh.........

    yes but they increased its power so even at 40% you should see an increase in stats to what you had before.

    Yep, William is right. With the current changes if all skills are 300, you will have the same power you had before. Now instead of capping at 100 ac it caps at 300, 3000 hp and 150 to all heroics.....aka it will be relevant for most of the rest of the life of EQ

    Still not worth the time investment for me. Not spending a whole month (probably longer if you actually farm the stuff) for just 1 toon when most of us play 4-6, and the power increase to your character is like 0.0001% from doing it.

    Who actually farms all the stuff? Just buy the seals and all the stuff for the earring of solstice in the bazaar. You still do need to do the tradeskills (up to at least 250-271, according to one person on the forums), but that's easy nowadays. The most time consuming part is doing the aid grimel and SoF TS series for those items (if you haven't done it before).

    You can farm all the mats fairly quickly on days you dont wanna play your box crew, just preplan where to run chars and set them up as bots looting all the tradeskill items you need. Then regroup when you wanna play!

    Don't you still have to do all the planar progression for some parts of the quest too?

    Re: Test Update 07/11/17 - Patch Notes and Discussion

    Yes, Aid Grimell quest arc requires most of the PoP progression as well as TS's at a certain level to talk to you at the different steps.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Stacking 1000 of many TS items now will make for some interesting sport doing my usual run of some 2000 x Pure Energiean power sources. Was always tough doing those runs in such large quantity. Used to do only 1000 at a time but with housing and parcels (being used & abused) and 40-slot bags, I was able to step up to 1500 then 2000 in one run. Yea, not for the faint of heart...

    Lol. I'll put it this way, I was working on 301+ skillups today and I seriously considered writing something, then I realized that I would literally have to hard code it for all 2000+ recipes per skill......and i went back to doing it by hand
