Hey oRO Team, I would like you guys to re-think the alchemist situation.
The past and present situation for alchemist is very bad, and the new rule, as good as u might think it is, is actualy very bad.
Right now every guild that does want to participate in woe is in need of having postions from an alchemist. Wich means people will brew all the time for woe. ( wich is by the way a massiv zeny sink for the server). Everyone is well aware that brewing is made by macro, you have to be real here, not a single person is willing or capable of brewing 10k slims, blues etc without macro at the current situation. And since the demand of postions from alchemist is that high, because there are no BG mats or Mastela NPC, people are not going to stop brewing neither will they stop using macros, because its unhealthy and not sustainable potting that amount of pots the normal way.
The solution you brought shows that you are well aware of macro usage and that alchemist depend on that, since there is no Soulinker skill for brewers yet or simply any other way to brew potions without hurting your fingers/hand. So there is some sort of protection for people not getting banned just because they do a very hard job for whole guilds and actually , even if they use macro, do a lot for the server and the community by providing mats, buying materials and give pvm players the possibilty to sell their herbs and wss. But the solution u brought up is bad, its demotivating, its annoying for every guild who depends on a potter and is very unlikely to be healthy at all for the server. Because people still spend time infront of the pc, brewing, restocking and "oh shit" using and setting up the macro. And since now, if they get "cought" wich isnt even a real because everyone already knows whats up, they also lose their points and can get guilds in real trouble because they might drop out of topten if this happens more often.
You seem to forget that the macro is used to avoid the pain of brewing XXXXX materials by hand, nobody realy cares about the time saved if u put the macro on 0.33 (wich no body does anyway) all macros are mostly run by the speed / efficency you can achiev with your fingers.
Your setup now is fishy and needs to be redone. Here are some examples :
Add a NPC wich give SL to the alchemist so he can brew more then one potion per 3 clicks. Add the skill overall to the alchemist as platinum skill Add a build in macro to the client, wich is a little slower then potting with the usage of your fingers. Allow macro usage , with a speed limit for alchemists only.
or add a rental item npc that sells a had for zeny. In gaiaro there was a rental hat for 1m that gives you twilight potion (link) for 2 hours, because Ahk (not mouse) was block there by gepard
We all know already that some things are handeld differently here on this server, we all obyed. But we are also your community, and you guys should please, be aware that we also want to have fun playing your server and dont want to risk our health conditions by injuring some of our nerves at our hands.
