How about a super duper reward if you have 100% wins and no loss? :)
As an explorer, you have done enough to retire.

BTW - these quests are pretty good benchmark tests for internet connection (a.k.a trigger speed) lol (dunno what it have to do with socializing and stuff, but whatever)

There were numerous people who decided it would be great to have their triggers try to beat out everyone else for who gets to wrestle next, never giving other players a turn. This was made possible by the fact that the cooldown only impacted people who wanted to initiate a challenge, but not people who wanted to respond to a challenge.

I figured it would be nice if you had three people to let them rotate, constantly taking turns without having to wait for the cooldown. Of course, selfish players ruin everything, so instead I've just implemented the cooldown across the board now.

So, now you simply have to wait for the cooldown to elapse if you have just finished arm-wrestling, no matter what.

Another update:

Skoot will no longer accept things you try to <give> him. People were giving him coins and he was being the greedy dwarf he is.

Question: when is the rested exp feature going to be active (or is it already?). Also, do we get any notification when we're rested and how it decays?
You see a mousetrap. I see free cheese and a challenge.

Yes, according to Gorboth's statements on the discord channel (please correct me if I misunderstood how it works), the tavern will work similar to an Inn in WoW. You spend time there and you gain an x3 multiplier for a set amount of time. It decays over time so you'd have to either rest again or continue hunting without the multiplier.

How does it work compared to normal exp? Here's the math Gorboth provided:
Assumes same grind.

Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp.
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp.
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp.
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp
Casual grinds for 30 minutes - gets 500 xp

Total time: apx. 3h Total Exp: 5,000

Rester rests for 30 minutes - gets muliplier
Rester travels for 5 minutes - reaches grind zone
Rester grinds for 30 minutes - gets 1500 xp
Rester grinds for 25 minutes - gets 1250 xp
Rester travels for 5 minutes - reaches pub
Rester rests for 30 minutes - gets muliplier
Rester travels for 5 minutes - reaches grind zone
Rester grinds for 30 minutes - gets 1500 xp
Rester grinds for 30 minutes - gets 1250 xp
Rester travels for 5 minutes - reaches pub
Rester rests for 30 minutes - gets muliplier
Rester travels for 5 minutes - reaches grind zone
Rester grinds for 30 minutes - gets 1500 xp
Rester grinds for 30 minutes - gets 1250 xp

Total time: apx. 3h Total Exp: 8,250
= 165%

I think it is very unlikely that Gorboths example is what will end up being in the game.
If you see it as something which gives a bit more reward than idling in your guild halls you're less likely to be disappointed.

Much appreciated. That sure does look interesting! Not familiar with how it works in WoW but I get the idea. Thanks!
