I have to say I hate the skill system.. the game seemed much more "real" when you didnt wonder around and find long lines of small drying racks, baskets and wooden floors just by the dozens in random areas. the extra resource gathering to increase the skills is to monotonous.. now i love resource gathering but i like seeing the fruits of my efforts instead i'm still stuck just mindlessly lvling my carpentry skill so i can build a windmill. I honestly think this will turn me away from the game..
