So I have been playing hard on this server since launch on Friday, and I have yet to find a single iron deposit/node. Just curious if the discovery formula has changed or if due to high traffic at launch I have just been very unlucky finding some? In the previous servers I was finding and working with iron, and I am able to craft with it at a decent percentage. My stats are: Intelligence-5, Perception-8, Mining-30, Blacksmithing-31.
Next question, it appears that experience for skills has been locked or capped. Through my daily grind, I have noticed that the numbers do not change and no progress is made towards the next skill level when completing tasks. For example, my stats page says the following:
Total Stats: 32
When I perform tasks that award experience such as high-level cookery, etc., these never change. That said, is this an issue, or has experience been frozen for testing or something?
Been a great time so far, keep up the good work!
