Mill ranks increased

Postby AJEA » Fri Oct 13, 2017 12:11 pm

Did anyone else notice an increase in their mill ranks? My Happy Hatter, level three, increased from 300 to 900, the Brilliant Blossoms, level two, went from 330 to 540 and the Soup Pot, level 3, jumped from 792 to 2640. I’m puzzled why, especially with the Soup Pot needing 1848 more hours to rank up.

Yes because some of the Mills received new items to make from the latest Update that gave us 5 New Levels , Candy Crane Mill and new items so PB Increased the Time need to Rank up certain Mills if not Max Rank already .

Yea not quite fair considering many players had mill mastery for months as beta before it was fully released.
I also find flower mill as one of the hardest to upgrade. (All recipes require plants that take a long time to mature).

That flower mill is one if the most underutilized and underrequested producers we have , which is why it is usually the last to rank up. Anyone else wonder why they have the heavily used island outfitter making the flower lei instead of the florist?

Does anyone have the complete list of mills which are affected by the increase and the amounts before and after?
Thanks

You've probably already checked the wiki. It looks to me to match what my mills are currently asking for-don't know if anyone has the "before" list or not or which mill/s were specifically affected? I did not check all my mills just about 6 different ones.

http://paradise-bay.wikia.com/wiki/Mastery_Mode

update: I just checked my soup pot compared to wiki-wiki has the "before" list, the after is 2640 hrs to 3 star. I'm guessing, will let you know what I find, that the mills affected were the ones with the new products.
Dive shop doesn't appear to be different?
Brilliant Blossoms is affected-wiki has old new is 540 to 2 star.
Art supply doesn't appear to be different?
Spinning yard doesn't appear to be different?

I just realized that King actually took away my 2nd star of my flower shop with this change! I can clearly recall that the flower shop was already producing double products during TF, but now it is below the new threshold, so I must earn 2nd rank again. Totally unacceptable. :evil:
I wonder were this goes?! When they will downgrade our levels, just because they lift the XP threshold or take away pets in the same way.
They really try to push us away from this game. :cry:

OH!! that is not acceptable!! Send in a ticket for sure!! Let us know how you make out with it. I hadn't kept track of the ranks on any of my mills-maybe they took them away from everyone?

I am sure they did it with everyone. If you were above the old threshold, but below the new, you rank fall back from 1 to 0 or 2 to 1. (Only those who are on the max rank kept their rank, otherwise this topic would be way more noisy.)
I see no reason to contact support as this is not something they should fix it individually. And King takes the liberty to change bits and pieces all the time caring nothing about the effort players made. The storage adjustments is just another very good example to this. :(
