No RuneScaping please. Anything but this. Can't say the Wyrd system really appeals to me at all but I'd rather that than this.
Are you serious? You'd rather not go with the most logical and simple way to improve skills simply because it's similar to runescape?
The similarity to runescape isn't what's horrible. It's the horrible tedious modicum of development that arises as a result. Runescape is the example that is evidence of the absurdity of this suggestionj.
First off 'logical and simple' is just your really bad way of saying 'REALISM PL0X!'
Secondly, consider smithing. Hands off this subject unless you've mined and smithed 1000 bars worth of any metal. THen consider for a moment how you would need to do that 10x over before you can actually produce something worth making.
Lastly, if you're still stubbornly obsessed with the absurd notion of realism then consider why the fuck on earth making several thousand plates or swords would give you any skill whatsoever in crafting jewelry.

I've done this half a dozen times in other threads. I'm not concerned enough to make the half a dozen other valid mechanics arguments I"ve already laid down or repeat them here for your convenience.
