    In my personal opinion, I think that new servers, at the least should have easier enchant challenges just for the fire aspect sword as one seems to be a fairly rare drop. Thus unless you donate you have to find someone willing to sell theirs for a fair price and that can be difficult to do in the beginning month of a new set of islands. Other than that I believe everything else is fairly well balanced for what you are able to do with it.

    Blacksmith - I never ever use /blacksmith since the rewards are quite bad. Maybe make the chance of extracting item XP higher, so that it can at least be profitable when I salvage my lvl 15 pick or something

    Sorcerer - Make the default return rate 60%, since 10% more xp is a huge difference

    I could easily do it myself, so others should be able to do it too. It's quite easy, really.

    I think the requirements for a soulstone should be decreased if you only keep it once after dying

    You should buff blacksmith and alchemy, because you don't really get great stuff from it, it should be much easier to get Arcane Shards.


    Thanks for reading. <3

    ALCHEMY-i think it should be bumped as it is very hard to acquire dust and they are most of the time not even worth the AH value
    ENCHANTING- it takes too much XP and some players do not have a proper grinder and will take them much more effort to do
    BLACKSMITH-the return of items are not worth it.their xp on the item sometimes only give 1/4
    SORCERER -instead of requiring dust to increase the amount of xp,it should require money as dust is already difficult enough to acquire in the game.

    Alchemy could do with a bit of a buff to the rates of shards other than this i believe all of alchemys balances and values are fine. It works as intended.

    I believe that the enchanting needs a buff as currently it is rather difficult to gain 120 levels, if there was some way to make this a tad easier would nice good. Other than getting the levels, the rates of success and costs are all totally fine.

    blacksmith could do with a buff as even when i blacksmith pieces of gear with 5 enchants I hardly ever get anything good for example if blacksmith a good sword, i will get a pathetic amount of exp and only a low level book (maybe sharpness 2) this is annoying and makes it not worth.

    I feel the sorcerer is fine as it is, it is expensive to use which it should be and means that there is a severe cost when using it, this is good and ensures that no one becomes too overpowered or gets to the point where it is impossible to get their gear due to the amount of soul stones on it.

    i think alchemizind should be buffed because its so hard to level up books to 4 and 5
    and enchanting should be buffed that u can get sharp 10 book with at least 10% chance

    I haven't checked Arcane Shards since the buff but other than that i think Alchemy and Enchanting are fine.
    I haven't used the blacksmith much so i don't know if that needs a buff or nerf.
    But the Sorcerer needs the price in stars and dust reducing significantly, because while i can afford to use him i just don't see it as worth while. (Especially since it is easy for me to grind 200+ xp levels killing blazes but this costs almost a million stars to store)

    Extra note: I think the price to unlock new challenge slots is way to high.

    I love all the people saying "ARCANE SHARD BUFF" Considering if they did that, we would all be DROWNING in dust. People. You get a stack or less of normal arcane dust EVERY arcane shard. Thats like 2,000 power.
    Now on to my choices.
    I believe disenchanting needs to be buffed for the higher enchantments (bloodsuck 10 backstab 10 etc) Considering I did 3 of them with 120 levels, and they all failed....
    I Agree with RetroMonk3y. With the new level 25 item, you should be able to get better item xp, and enchantments.

    P.S. Sometimes the sorceror gets glitched. I once had 21 levels, came to him, and he gave me a 33k Enchant xp bottle...

    I completely agree. 15 Million stars just for some new Campaign challenges is not anywhere near worth it, at least for me.

    Hello,
    I am busterboy225, a well known member on Monster, and a player that moved to TFI for some challange.
    Though I have only played on two servers, it is clear to me that Alchemy needs a little buff. This buff would be going torwards arcane shards. I would give it about a 10% chance to give you an ikit shard, but about a 1% chance to get the Arcane shard it self. This would balance out the idea of getting ikit shards, but still make sure it is challenging.

    Second idea is the
    Blacksmith which needs some serious editing. A good idea would be to be able to use dust, to get more enchants off the item, and more Item Exp. This idea just needs something to increase chance of getting books and item exp from the item. Small, but a needed change.

    The last reason will shock others, but I am voting to Nerf
    Sorcery because it is just way too overpowered to be able to take out all of the exp you have used, and more. I think Sorcery should reset its exp when you die.

    These are my ideas, hope everyone enjoys. Thank you

    I think the rates for immortal shard from arcane should stay the same. But maybe be able to get other rewards from arcane shards not just dust

    DO NOT. And I repeat. DO NOT. Buff arcane shards. All these people hoping for them to be buffed are probably the same ones who complain about the Unbalancing of the server. That would just make it worse.

    i think you should get more dust for arcane shards and have a higher chance when upgrading books by 1 or 2 more percent
