cb idea (in General)

Can I suggest adding to the training page(for training purposes) a 3/4 max option, or train by %?

I've been wanting something like this forever.

I think an overhaul of this makes sense, maybe add to the papercuts?

I like the dropdowns, but
a) the way it's set up is not intuitive (1/3 1/2 max = all 3 at 33%) and confuses every new player
b) the values are too limited

I'm not going to crank out a mockup right now now, but leaving the dropdowns there and also adding an input where you could put a percentage in I think would be awesome. (Maybe they are uneditable or hidden and there's a "custom percentage" dropdown value that enables the inputs for manual entry.) The percentages would be of the total exp, so 33/33/34 would be 3 stats (roughly) equal (rather than the equivalent of 33/50/100 right now).

Saving a training set would save these values of course, and then you could easily save your "30% HP, 25% MM, 15% GA and 30% DM" training set without having to train multiple times to get the numbers right.

I definitely like the idea of putting in a % option. And it should indeed be based off of a 100% total so in order to train all of your exp it should add up to 100%.

i too think that the most intuitive way would be to have an empty box that you can type a percent in and then a total box that adds up all of your percentages.

I suggested this the other month...

Everyone was in favour of it then, too.
