Feedback Thoughts on beginning tradeskill progression

is this feedback?

I have no leveled two characters to 7 with different tradeskills. prospector/weaponsmith and hunter/forester. All three of the gathering skills required that I hang back in the starter zone specifically to level them up before heading into the 2nd zone.

This was especially noticeable on the hunter/forester which I leveled my main combat skill almost exclusively on blue and white mobs that could be skinned, in an area that had a ton of plants/wood to be gathered. Ideally I would want to head into the 2nd zone around lvl 6 however I had to spend several hours catching up on these two skills in a zone with almost exclusively green mobs. For example, I am now lvl 7 support off of entirely green mobs and I still do not have hunter/forester to lvl10 to be able to harvest the new materials in the 2nd zone.
**EDIT** I should add that I am one of those OCD people that literally skins/picks everything they see. I can't walk past something that I can harvest and not pick it up.

This may be by design and if so, carry on but it does make for a tedious, unfulfilling experience full of 'busy work' in order to not miss out on the new resources available in the 2nd zone.

There are still tier1 harvesting nodes in NNH though too. I feel like quite a bit until you get a little deeper before even seeing the lvl 10 nodes?

Both Meadowlands and North Newhaven contain low level resource for harvest, the resources are not specific to a single zone.

Progress definitely seems smoother than it was in the previous test session. Now we just need more recipes :)


Ya, this is a game you get to know. Once ya get to know it, things become easier. It's also alot easier with a group. Enjoy the mystery!
