So does wear work like, For example. If i tuck 1 stalagoom in my study that has 0/10 wear. It will study it 10 times? That would be really cool.

That is precisely what it means, but each successive studying of it gives less LP.

Autostudy nerf'd.

Have you done the quests yet? Maybe they give stones :P Dunno myself, but I hope so
Anyway, I am very, very curious how this curiosity system is going to work out. Great update, much praise

I do have a bit of a plan to remedy this, but it requires a bit of infrastructure that I need to create. Hopefully it will bear fruit tomorrow or during the weekend.

Does the free time thing apply to all accounts or just ones with a subscription? As in , will people's free 7 hours tick down? :) Would be nice if not.

As for the curios.. I can't quite agree with the system. It seems to make a whole lot of purity nodes useless, with now only essence mattering at all. Int is easy to get more of in a community or after a bit of work, so attention reduction is only good for newbies that refuse to get int (which they shouldn't do if the quest system instructs them properly). As it was, the amount of curios you needed wasn't too annoying, it provided foraging incentive to be honest. The way you made it now might still encourage people to seek a full wear set of curios, but they'll more than likely need to sacrifice either vit or sub nodes for essence nodes (where possible) and more or less screwing over anyone without such nodes. With the limited number of curio slots, LP gain is the only thing that can really maximize gained LP so for anyone wanting to be efficient he Essence train is now boarding, choo choo. Please reconsider the system to be less symbel like, will post later with a more thought out suggestion if you're up to redoing it (because IMO aside from some tweaking it really needs redoing)

I say it needs redoing because if you've not scaled base LP values, then you've not really buffed anything, and in fact have nerfed all low Essence curios. I'd suggest picking a range of wear points the average of which would yield base LP. Say, the first quarter of the wear points added together would add 4x CurrentBaseLP. To do this the first tick or two would need to be scaled to yield accordingly.

Everything is nice.

Play time does not tick either, indeed. It's open season.
