I have to rant. I don't like ranting on forums but I feel this issue seriously needs to be addressed. I'm reposting what I posted from a topic in the Carpentry forum where the issue was brought to my attention:
Keep in mind... All crafts are labeled as 11 since Zam doesn't have any specific level information. All we know is that it's 11-20 from SE's site.
So for all we know, it could be level 20. Hopefully we find out soon.
Thank you so much for this info. Zam has now made me waste at least 40k trying to make stuff listed at rank 11. I was under the assumption that they knew somehow that it was indeed rank 11, not that they were merely listing it as the lowest possible assumption
. This is such falseness and I am frustrated.
If they aren't sure of a LARGE level range between 11-20 (that is a BIG gap!) then post it as either 11-20 or 20! Don't under guess it falsely implying to your reader base that it is 11 when you have no idea what it is between a large 9 level gap.
I would have never known this if I hadn't come to the forums and saw this post out of the blue. I was frustrated with two different rank 11 crafts and came here to see if anyone was having trouble with the same ones. I'm sure the thousands of people who use the database but not forums are wasting their time/rescources thinking they are high enough since one of the biggest sites are listing it as rank 11, when in fact Zam has no idea what level it actually is. ///endqoute///
Or even list it as - as an unknown rank. Stating something as 11 when you have no idea is just really, really bad imo. I'm annoyed I wasted so much time/rescources on something that I thought was 3 levels lower than my rank, when in fact it was probably 5+ levels higher.
Also, on a different note, how do we add the prices that vendors pay for an item? Just as a comment on the item's page? Or somewhere else that's specific for that?
And also, when I click an item on the recipe list, it takes me to a page listing the materials, then I have to click the completed item link on that page to see comments, what its an ingredient in, etc. That really seems like an unecessary extra click/load. Edited, Oct 9th 2010 1:52am by PinkMermaid
