We didn’t recieve a Expertise bump even tho we farmed our 600GS items prior to the update.
I’ve explained it in forum post below and would like to recieve some feedback if this is intended design.
My company farmed a lot to get to that 600GS point and I’m sure there are others taht would like this to be answered.

OG Post: Where's our 600 Expertise?

Where do you hunt the alligators? I had that a few days ago that all alligators in Cutlass keys don’t count (redstriped ones I think) towards the TB quest.

  • What is your character name in New World: FrizB
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Pleroma
  • Describe the issues you are experiencing:
  1. Sorting on the Trading post has frozen my game to where I needed to ALT+F4 3 times within the first 10 minutes of being online.
  2. One of those times I had to close my game again because my character wouldn’t load on the character screen.
  3. You can’t start town board projects.
  4. You can’t withdraw money from the company treasury.
  5. Trying to make a purchase on the trading post froze my game to where I had to ALT+F4.
  6. Storage says it is full even if it isn’t.
  7. Increase the 500 item limit per storage by A LOT please. PLEASE. Why do we even try to get weight limits if they don’t matter? It felt better when I couldn’t see it. I hated you for putting an invisible limit on the storage, but now I hate it even more than I can see the limit and that I’m ALWAYS at it. I hate that I have to go through and mouseover each and every friggin craft mod and crafting material to ask myself if it is good enough to keep in my storage just because I constantly stay at the upper limit.
  8. Can’t talk in global even though I have over 1100 hours played.
  9. You can’t craft with items from storage.

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Mag Mell
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: Storage shows full, but obviously is not full (see pic)
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: misleading, but still works, I can move items in. The more problematic issue has been reported and that is you have to have all mats on you to craft as it no longer will use items from your storage. Definitely a step back.
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: not sure how to respond to this
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: open your storage shed

Don’t know if this was listed in the known issues thread (TL;DR) which is sad that the list was that long at the precise point you released the patch but that is a different tale. Here is a photo of orichalcum ore not stacking.
