Direct vs. indirect labour issues. Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

So I distill quite a bit. I'm Legendary at it, which I'm pretty happy about.

However, when directly distilling (i.e. playing the actual puzzle), I have never provided Expert labour. I don't just mean that it's said that I did expert and then downgraded it because no expert was needed; I mean it's *NEVER* said "Expert" when I was actually playing the puzzle, only Skilled (which sometimes gets downgraded) or Basic. IIRC, I've never gotten an Incredible! rating at the puzzle itself, either, only a lot of Excellents.

Since I'm Legendary, my skills tab says that I'm providing Expert labour; this presumably means that when I'm not puzzling (or just when I'm offline?) I'm accumulating Expert hours at the distillery.

Seems to me, then, that by actually playing the puzzle itself, I'm *losing* money.

Is this correct, or am I missing something?
