Lets talk about the research trees and if or when the damaged abilities will work again. It feels like the pink elephant in the room that no one talks about or seems to care. I asked IC to various people and nobody knows.
I will admit I have selfish reasons for asking and they pertain to bashing. The anatomy lost means 5% crit rate gone, the manipulation and transmutation of wisdom is 30% XP lost. Having the venantium-chased gauntlet makes it even more annoying since we could get a free manipulation every 6 hours. I remember @Mjoll
saying in the forums here how she spend a lot of gold transmuting wisdom, that is no longer possible. It may not be much but at higher levels every little bit helps.
Now with all that said and to be fair the weekly bonuses for September and October certainly made up for the research loses. Thank you @Ictinus
and the team for that, it was appreciated.
