Cannot get Experience Points Megathread.

If you experience issues with a lack of lore events, and, thus, experience points, consider the following...

  • Keep playing, and try new things. A varied set of activities could be a missing ingredient in your cake.
  • Try actively for some of the easier experiences. Lift something, craft something, enter a cave, drink water, sit down, &c.
  • The system can be a cruel mistress at present, but we are working to expand and streamline it.
  • The system is intentionally obscure, and is therefore hard to debug.
  • Magic has been inserted which should prevent characters from permanently locking themselves out of experiences. If you are in a rut it should be temporary.

If all else fails, make a post here and tell us of your woes. Be aware, however, that there most likely won't be much we can do to help you, except keep developing.

Apologies if the game is giving you a hard time.

im in a rut... I am going to try a few things tommorow.. I tried to get rarer ones like smelter, tanning rubs, dawn on the mountain... but im not sure if I triggered it properly... do I just have to go in and out of a cave and I should get it?

i am going to go line per line over my lore and see what I can find.

I was in a rut for a couple days then shit starting hitting like a waterfall. Now it doesn't seem like I can do "anything" without hitting an Experience and I'm closing on 10k Exp.... (And I only play all of an hour or two a day......) So in short? DON'T PANIC!!!

For the first week or 2 after the server started I seemed to get experiences in bundles. For example I log in, play for an hour or 2 without any exprerience, and then, within a couple minutes I get 3 or 4. Then nothing till the next day.

Currently I seem to get no experiences for a couple of days, then get a 2-3 during one day and then nothing again. I'm not worried that much about it, as I still have 4k exp saved.

Everyday I craft, fight, lift, enter water, caves, light fire etc. - all those common activities

I cannot seem to acquire experience since my character died and I made a new one. I got a few experience events right after character creation and since then nothing.

This is a pic of my current ones


I have tried sitting in a chair, picking up and placing a table, picking up and placing a regular item, walking in shallow water, digging dirt, releasing a dream, jumping up and climbing down cliffs, walking by animals, walking in a cave, walking on a mountain at night going into day, plowing, farming, crafting an item, standing under a willow and right clicking it, drinking, and walking over many many types of terrain, I seem to get no events no matter what I do. I'm closing in on no experience now, and not for lack of trying a diverse amount of things. This is annoying.
