Question #1: Auto-equipping / switching for Skinning

Postby Tuebit » Sun Feb 18, 2007 2:19 pm

Anyone got any suggestions on the best way to switch equipment when skinning in the field?

I seem to have to equip my skinning knife manually before I skin a critter. Worse still, if I want bonuses (not that I have any), I'd have to switch my character gear completely. Then switch back to adventuring gear for the next kill.

You can have a set of gear for each "domain" (e.g., adventuring, crafting, harvesting, diplomacy) equipped at the same time. The only time I need to switch gear is when I need to switch between different diplomacy pants or different harvesting tools.

Even then, you can have 2 different harvesting tools in your harvesting toolbelt (separate purchase) and the game will automatically equip the correct tool from your toolbelt.

I hope that makes sense and helps.

your gear should switch to your harvestig gear automatically when you harvest, also, back to adventuring when your done. Secondly, on your harvesting tab, you should have a belt, open that belt (8 slots i think) and drop all your tools in there. It will auto equip whatever tool you need for what you are harvesting.

Also, it is a good idea to buy (the free one) of every tool there is for harvesting. Group harvesting allows you to assist someone else in the group that is harvesting a node even if you cant.
It's not powerleveling...its leveling as fast as you can...with POWER!!
