  1. DenverRalphy added a post in a topic How many Shakatu Seals can you get?   

    To be fair, the "various events" doesn't mean that the monthly loyalty will always have them as well. I'd be willing to bet that they'll keep it pretty close to 10 seals per/mo. I'd bet dollars to donuts that weeks/months that see the seals awarded from other events also sees that month's loyalty event not having any. Especially given the items that they award. No way they want to hand them out willy-nilly.
    Shakatu Seals are probably more of a mechanic "to keep our players in game each day" than a "let's give em a kiss" mechanic.

    Yeah... getting a bit frustrated with the new forums that suddenly tanked on me.

  3. DenverRalphy added a post in a topic Does the riding attire bonus apply when you have a wagon?   

    More specifically, the bonus adds to the base value of XP the horses receive. When a horse is connected to a wagon, their base XP over distance and time decreases. You'll still get the 20% bonus from the riding attire, but that 20% is applied to to the modified base XP that decreases when a horse is connected to a wagon. So if your horse normally gets 600xp per tick riding solo it'd receive a bonus of 120, making it 720 per tick. But if it's connected to a wagon and the base is reduced to 400xp per tick, you'd receive a bonus of 80, making it 480 per tick. And from all tests I've done, experience for horses on a wagon doesn't depend on how many horses you have connected. Whether you have 1 horse or 4 horses connected, you still see a uniform reduction in base xp per tick (as well the time between ticks is extended).
    [caveat] I used arbitrary numbers to make the example easier to understand.

  4. DenverRalphy added a post in a topic Beta New Forum - the time has come!   

    No info will be lost. The old forums content will continue to be viewed. And there's now a lot more leeway in organization. For example, instead of one Horse Breeding Mega Thread, there's an entire subforum dedicated to it, and many horse breeders have already compiled and populated it with FAQ's, Guides, etc... and it wasn't difficult in the least (in fact it was more beneficial). Other subforums have already received the same treatment as well. 
    It's not like suddenly all previous data has been erased.

    Just a random fluke. Likely when you receive a level up, the horse wouldn't have learned a skill whether you leveled up or not. The fact that you leveled up and didn't see a new horse skill a few or more times in a row is just coincidence.

    There are 2 life-skills sections. They just forgot to remove the one under General Discussion. You want the Life Skills section under Gameplay & Mechanics.

    Unfortunately, I can't log in to the beta forums anymore since they updated it. It simply won't let me login. =/
    Anybody else who was using the FB login method now unable to login?

    Not necessarily a Horse Breeder question, but I know a lot of horse breeders in this thread have been using the  new beta forums... Suddenly I'm getting a "(You have insufficient privileges to reply here.)" error messages. Anybody else getting this?

    My method for judging a horse as being a potato is pretty simple Caveat: I only judge T5-T7 by this method because they have 15/16 total skills available to them, while T1-4 don't have as many learnable skills to choose from, and T8's have a larger pool of skills to choose from. As well, I've just never found it worth the time to judge a T1-T4 as they're usually fodder (might be different if I weren't a breeder).
    If the horse's total learned skills is 1/2 (one half) or greater than the horse's current level, it's a friggin genius. If it's total learned skills is less than 1/4th the horse's current level, it's on the stupid/potato side. If it's in between, it's average. So consider a T7 level 30 with 7 skills, that's just under the 1/4th threshold for being a spud. But the same horse with 15 or 16 skills is a freak of nature genius. While the same horse with 10 skills would be average.
    That being said. That's just how "I" judge my horses. Mileage may vary based on other's opinions.
    Some breeders feel there's a new hook in the system. Since the Courser system was introduced, now a lot of breeders consider any horse that doesn't have all the courser skills as being a potato. Which I don't think is a fair assessment. But again, that's just me.

  11. DenverRalphy added a post in a topic A simple way to make Rough stone, Weeds & Logs a little more plentiful   

    1) Yeah umm... what're you trying to say here? Have to have time? How long do you think it takes to gather weeds? They're in such large supply it's laughable. And what node empire are you speaking of? You get those in the wild.
    2) You're not making sense here. You gather weeds by not using ANY gathering tool. Want weeds? Gather bare handed and you get the benefit of not reducing a tool's durability. And you get gobs of them by the handful.

  12. DenverRalphy added a post in a topic Killing AFK trainers is impossible   

    Problem is though, that while 49 and below can't be attacked by other players, they can be halted/interrupted during an AFK auto-loop run, which can be worse than simply being killed by a player. If a player kills you, you don't lose xp and your horse doesn't suffer a Death Count. But if you're 49 and below, and you get unhorsed or interrupted by a douchebag player who has zero motivation other than being an ass, and thus halting the AFK loop, and it's done in an area where mobs/monsters are nearby, then the player as well as the horse both suffer for it because getting killed by mobs/monsters results in the horse receiving a death count and the player losing xp.

    Yup... classic example of all my lower tiers... going nowhere...
    Going through a bit of a struggle. Hope it turns around soon.

  14. DenverRalphy added a post in a topic The Single Chink in BDO   

    Seriously? You couldn't read or interpret the context, and only saw a pre-conceived notion? C'mon. The OP wasn't using Chink as a racial epithet, but as a widely accepted term that long predates the slang vernacular you're so offended by. In what way were you encouraged (beyond your own kneejerk paranoid reaction) to view it as a racial epithet?
    You might as well argue the term "A chink in the armor". Does that refer to an asian in armor? NO! It means a dent, or damage to, armor.
    This is a classic case of somebody seeing the devil where the devil doesn't actually exist.
