Thread: Easier Foraging Bounties

  1. #1

    Default Easier Foraging Bounties

    Does more Survival skill always make more easily completed Foraging bounties?

    Is it actually possible to do them quickly at the level cap with just 1x Perception?

    with 1x perception and ~20ish survival as a monk (so an "ok" class bonus) i basically still needed an open roll, or close to it (like roll 85+), most of the time. I could do them, but it would take a bit and could be annoying in swarming areas.

    with 1x survival and 1x perception i need to roll more like, 50 or less for most things. I think once you get to 100 and max your core stuff picking up 1x of survival, perception (if not already), FA, trading to some degree (i did 40 ranks), and climb swim to 75+ just makes a lot of little things way, way less annoying and I recommend it.

    When I was 1x survival/perception I had no issues with foraging bounties as a wizard. I've picked up another 101 perception since then but I don't really notice a big difference vs. 1x survival/1x perception.

    I am 1x perception, I'm considering 1x survival so I can do alchemy easier (script will auto-forage) but it's so damn expensive in TPs as a wizard. You're super-post-cap though so whatever, but is 1x survival even remotely feasible for non or only slightly capped pures?

    I have no idea to be honest. Survival didn’t exist when I was still leveling up.

    The good news is haste + air lore + no survival is probably still doable, you’ll just need higher rolls. It’s still annoying af without air lore though since Haste got that gigantic nerf a few years ago.

    I don't remember having problems completing alchemy with 1x perception, ~30 ranks survival, and 603 scrolls/items (which gets you the equivalent of 45 survival ranks for foraging purposes at cap).

    My capped wizard has 101 perception ranks and 25 survival ranks. I never pass up on foraging bounties, even the Rift cursed herbs. Celerity(506) is your friend. While on the other hand my mid level sorcerer, 1x perception and 1x survival, is horrid at foraging bounties.

    i don't know when it happens but it's like, one of those things where it makes no fucking difference how many ranks you have because you aren't getting passed the standard difficulty of the herbs, so you need to open roll anyway, then you get over the hump and the ranks actually start lowering the the roll required and it's like ohhhhhhh, neat. Wizards and sorcs (especially since no haste) obviously get shafted on this with the 0 profession mod.

    It's also such a pile of shit doing low level bounties you're like 2x survival, 2x perception...and still need to roll like a 93 for the god damn bounty herb like wtf.
