Research City Artisan Exp. Broken?

I was under the impression that crafting in a research city gave +15 to the exp roll. I'm not noticing any difference at all in the skill modifier screen.

Is this accurate?

It has never been visible nowhere but it is there, I have heard/seen no reports saying otherwise.

Then in theory I should have 12 experimentation points, right?

Nope, the Research city spec just affects the probability roll while experimenting, giving you the more Great and Amazings :)

That ain't bad though, the more of them the better.

There are two kinds experimentation bonuses.
  • The first kind gives bonuses to both your experimentation roll and count for the purpuse of determining how many experimentation points you get. These are: Any racial bonuses, Base skill from leveling, Expertise and Clothing Attachments.
  • The second kind of experimentation bonus affects only the experimentation roll and does not count for gaining experiemntation points. These are: The city bonus and Bespin Port (Force sensitive crafting used to also be in this second category).

To my understanding the racial bonuses to crafters are still there, all others are done with. Humans have 10 extra Artisan Assembly/Experimentation, Sullustans have extra to some SW skills. Are there more? I might be wrong :oops:

Possibly I must update "the Guide" with this.

I was also under the impression that racial bonuses were gone, a long time ago. Can we confirm?

I just compared two of my toons whereof one is human, she would have had 110 Artisan Assembly/Experimentation with +10 racial bonuses. She has not. I have completely missed If/when the racial bonuses were taken away. Possibly with Chapter 5 or 6. I don't have much time to look up the publish notes, nor search the forums, unless I want to take off for London without luggage :P

There was some talk a while back of racial bonus's being reinstated, pretty sure it got shelved due to the outcry that followed.

When I wrote that line about racial bonuses to experimentation, I did stop and think, "Do humans still get the + to artisan experimentation or not?" I wasnt sure, but knew they used to. I was going to check it out, but like most things, I got on another subject and never got to it. :roll:
