Have been trying to pin down why my game play experience on PS4 has felt broke as Hell. I couldn’t figure out how the game designer expected me to get very far, to the point of gathering iron, with such brutally small supplies of iron in relation to also hides to leather to be better geared and defended.
Well, looks like a stepping stone for this progression was removed. Stone Tools, to Apprentice Butcher, to Stone Skinning Dagger no longer exist. The Stone Skinning Dagger item still exist, but ability to get the skill and recipe to craft one is gone. This creates a huge brick wall for progressing. With no decent way to turn hide to leather, to armor, the gathering of iron to hop to making an iron skinning dagger is painful and frustratingly difficult.
Please, put this skill, and recipe, back in the knowledge progression path.
