Is there something that has changed in giving skill experience in the most recent update?
I no longer gain heavy armor experience when I'm hit by a high level bear but I do from a 36 wolf (my heavy armor is 39)
It also seems that I get nothing on weapon skills if I hit them as well?
If I had to speculate it would appear that mobs have to be within a certain level range to give any benefits? This is terrible... what if your heavy armor is 40 and your weapon skill is 20 (much like me with fencing).
