Skill Requirement for T-Hunting
So, I have read the latest publish as of June 12, 2019 and I am still confused. You say in the Publish that LP and DH are no longer pre-reqs for the RT Skill. I had also read in another article that those two skills (LP & DH) were going to be incorporated into the Cartography skill, therefore not needing Mining to find the chest. Now, it seems, that this is not true, that I will still have to have LP to open chests, just like before (GM I assume for the higher level chests) PLUS I will still have to have Mining if I don't want to search tile by tile for the chest??? Plus I have to have RT AND know how to do puzzles??? PLEASE CLARIFY!!!!
My template did not allow for me to have both LP & Mining on at the same time and I was having a hard enough time switching between LP & Mining, but at least I could put on Mining, go find the chest during the day, remove Mining and put on LP and be ready for guild hunting that night. And I would periodically forget to swap the skills and get to a chest and have to waste time going home to swap. But that was on me for wanting the template I have and not wanting to take forever to find a chest.
So now, you are FORCING me to ADD a skill I have no room for on my template ... people are NOT going to want to wait while I go home and switch RT for LP to open the chest, so I will have to 'carry' both of those skills on my template at all times or carry my soulstones into battle. And what if I am not good at puzzles???? Some people are, and some people aren't!!! Didn't know I had to be a genius to play this game!!! You should take into account that some of us are rather old and not as sharp as we used to be!!
You know, that was the ONE activity I REALLY enjoyed doing by myself and now you've ruined it! I have been a T-Hunter for half of my UO career and will probably retire. You were asked to revamp LOOT not the whole Skill-set.
So, while you may have done this thinking it would make Cartography and T-Hunting more appealing, it doesn't. And making it harder or impossible is just plain discouraging and mean. I know that I will probably be retiring my T-Hunter. LOTS of other ways to get scrolls and such.
