Leveling up skills?
« on: May 18, 2012, 11:02:41 PM »
I'm new to the game and I am not sure how how to level up; Trader, Stamina, or Energy Skill in the game. Also are there any bonuses to having these skills up?

You level trader skill by collecting from outposts, the higher your trader skill is the more outposts you can have. You can have up to 3x your trader level but get a penalty if you go over 1x, the penalty is usually worth it.

Energy and Stamina skills are raised by drinking energy drinks and using stamina pills. As you level these skills you will gain extra energy and stamina capacity. For each level of energy skill your max energy goes up by 10, for every 3 levels of stamina skill your max stamina goes up by 1.
Therefore, Lessifer's answer is right.

Also just a heads up when you get your trade skill up to where you want it take you skill lvl multiply it by 3 and then divide by 2 and you'll get the best possible return for having over your lvl in outposts. Let me give you an example

My trade lvl is 30 multiply by 3 give me 90 and divide by 2 give me 45

Now if all 45 of my outpost are the 48 hr 1200 outpost I'll get at least 1060 if I'm on time and close to them. Yes trade lvl progress is really slow with this but its the best return when you get to higher lvls and you need a lot of supplies to upgrade

Actually having 2.5x your trader level max's your income, and helps you level the skill somewhat faster.

1200 x .87(13%penalty at 1.5x) = 1044x45 = 46,980

1200 x ..62(38%penalty at 2.5x) = 744x75 = 55,800

Based on trader level 30 and 48hr outposts you get roughly 9,000 more every two days and an additional 30 trader xp from the extra outposts.
Therefore, Lessifer's answer is right.
