After applying oil I was gathering rock. The oil timer was not counting down by seconds. It was actually knocking off multiple seconds with every swing. After gathering for approximately 4 minutes I only had 30 seconds left on the buff. I tested this with weapons and multiple other gathering tools.
Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
1.Apply the efficiency oil to a gathering took, in my case a pick axe
2.Gather items, in my case rock
3.Watch the timer go down 5-10 seconds at a time and not count down in real time
4.Get upset because your oil falls off twice as fast as it should
So with a timer in second, it takes off additional seconds per swing? Can you help this make any sense at all? I really don’t understand this mechanic.
When I first used them this did not happen. I farmed the same rock pile and it had 4 minutes left on the timer. Right before posting, and after testing numerous times, I had less than a minute. So the first time was the bug, and the second time taking off twice as much time is normal?
OK. I figured out what is going on. I will find a way to post a link to the video when I can get it hosted.
I have 20+ Survival so I gather twice as fast. So when having that buff the oil is used twice as fast. In the video I start gathering stone at 8:14. I finish gathering stone and I had 5:03 left. I only used the pickaxe for 1:49 sec. So if you use the buff from survival with the oil it decreases twice as fast. If that is working as intended then time must run differently in Norway.
Wow so we’re penalized for investing in Survival then? That seems really unfair to have the oils decay twice as fast when one of the main purposes of that perk is to make tools last longer. I really hope that the devs reconsider this…
Correct me if Im wrong which most likely I am cause Im wrong most of the time but that’s ok right who cares. Isn’t the 2nd perk on survival meant to maximize durability on the tools?? As u dont actually get double the amount of resources but instead u simply save durability by hitting stuff less n what not. Instead of 5 or 6 hits to break a rock w/o the perk it takes 2 or 3 with the perk but the yield is overall the same so… why would this perk consume more durability of the oil when its purpose is the exact opposite? ? Im confused as of how things r supposed to work. They said it’s intended but no further details of how the mechanic works so… idk again I might be wrong n maybe there’s something quite obvious that I don’t see as I often miss alot n what not but I…I…Idk this oil is never touching my pick
