    Those calculations are unbuffed and recipes are not noted at all which should be since they are part of the complete picture regardless of the level limit when it comes to the game design. Bookbinder and rarity max buffed for one day is around 15 manuscripts which for example means all 46 generals would have a maxed jog in about 10 days. There are plenty of ways to get bookbinder and provision house buffs.

    Remember that their (BB) business is to also sell some gems which some people use to buy glue or quick complete books.

    Anyways the chart example is also a bit unrealistic since there is no need to max skill that many and especially in a such linear way so lets halve the amount and time to, say 4 years. Then include the recipes which unbuffed roughly halve the time again to 2 years. Finally count some buffs, glue for 2x and rarity up to 4x division with barazeks. That gets us roughly to 1 year or less if we assume we buff "often". On top of that include all the event calendar books and other possible random sources. It does not take that long after all when BB does the math based on dedicated players (such as the player with 46 gens).

    Actually it is that hard, BB have said that the reason why we got recipes for the RPH was because of the problems with adding a queue to Bookbinder.

    I guess it depends who is answering and where. I've seen different replies with various reasons but they all had the same end "message" that there will be no queue. Here is one old message from Germany by BB_Pandur which says roughly translated:

    "A construction queue for the bookbinder is not planned and was canceled from the outset. The feature of the bookbinder is designed on purpose that no queue exists. The reasoning then and now: the production of books to represent something "special", daily picking up the book included. "

    Why would it be any different to having a queue in any other building? If they can't add a queue give us another building that can have a queue, just make a prov house just for books

    Thanks for the suggestion. For the immediate future, we like the idea of skills being a long-term goal. However, as time progresses, it's expected that features such as this will be looked at from time to time and adjustments made.

    I'm not asking to make it faster, just add a queue, what's the point in using the glue buff that lasts 24 hours when a manuscript only take about 4 hours? Are we meant to get up in the night to put another book on?

    <s>
    if u really like this game you will get up just for the book in the book binder and get back to bed
    maybe u should also send a geo for a granite search while getting up for the book binder )))
