Default Dreams of +41

upload

But not yet.

134 skill points are needed for +40. Here is the breakdown:

Enchanting 100... +100
Naturalist 100..... +10
Rune Invention... +12
Shield VIII......... +12


137 skill points are needed for +41 stones.

Dragonsorrow VIII gives +12.

Dragonsorrow IX gives +13.

We can presume the Dragonsorrow X would give +14, which would put us at 136... just 1 skill point shy of 137.

Glitch could always raise cap on Enchanting/Naturalist.... Or introduce an LG skill to raise the stone cap.

@Brother, maybe glitch can buff the t10 to +15 skill points. Maybe he has already done so.

The current known skills are the following

Enchanting 100... +100
Naturalist 100..... +10
Rune Inv. Rank 6. +12
Craft Shield IX.... +13

That's a total of 135


If there were to be an update to further skills, then I imagine it would look like this:

Enchanting 100... +100 becomes Enchanting 140... +140
Naturalist 100..... +10 becomes Naturalist 140..... +14
Rune Inv. Rank 6. +12 becomes Rune Inv. Rank 7. +13
Craft Shield IX.... +13 becomes Craft Shield X..... +14

That would put it at 168 possible skill points.

And here is what that would unlock for enchanting stones:

137 for +41 stones
140 for +42
144 for +43
147 for +44
150 for +45
154 for +46
157 for +47
160 for +48
164 for +49
167 for +50

I think the two most likely update, if any, to be implemented are the Craft shield to X at +14 and then Naturalist 140 at +14.

We know that the }X{ gear pieces are coming. It's just a matter of time.

Naturalist would be a benefit for all crafting, so I think that would be favored over any update specific to a single crafting category like Enchanting skill.

So......

Enchanting 100... +100
Naturalist 100..... +10 becomes Naturalist 140..... +14
Rune Inv. Rank 6. +12
Craft Shield IX.... +13 becomes Craft Shield X..... +14

And that puts us at 140 possible skill points unlocking +42 stones.

Also, if anyone is wondering about the formula for crafting enchanting stones with regards to skill points: [Total Stats of Stone] x 3.33, and round it up to the next whole number.

Im not sure naturalist 140 is a good option in all honesty.
as it sits now
t1 shield +5
100 nat +10
r6 rune +12

you need a 93 in a craft skill to make LG's.
However if you increase the naturalist to 140 you wouldnt need to even finish a hell level at penalty to craft lgs, and if you are a capped 90 you can make lgs without even going into penalties at all.

The only skill that needs over 100 crafting is stones. I say a new skill specifically for that is more in line. no need to make crafting easier for everyone.

To avoid that hell level with penalties you would be going through up to 6 of them to get to 140 Nat though. It also takes twice the exp to level as any one of the crafting skills.

yes but naturalist xp is gained from just resourcing as opposed to having to craft something. it gets very expensive to craft weapons or armor at a level where you get decent xp. naturalist is free and just takes time and effort to raise, hence it being too easy/cheap. again just my opinion.

Quick adjustment, if I may. r7 invent would be +14, not +13, per current increase paradigm.
r5 is +10, r6 is +12.

Also, I could see an epic/lg skill to coincide with naturalist, but relative to crafting/artistry, as we currently have epic craft/art available now. It would give another way of making higher level stones and epic potions (already in most wanted list) possible.

If we consider that possibility with X shield, we land at 146, putting us functionally where we are now, lol, with 1 point shy of +44 stones. With r7 runes, though, we'd be able to be at 1 point over +44 stones and have to gripe about not being able to do +45 stones.
