So, I tried all that and it didn't do the trick. I ended up just putting up a @readcache cron job every 30 minutes. All you who follow in my footsteps: skip the troubleshooting and just use the cron. @Sponge is wise.
In a few months SHH's power curve will resemble TR's.
A few months? I dunno, I started with Gnosis 1, so just getting to 5 is going to take a full year. Even somebody who started at 3 due to being a full mage transfer is looking at 6 months minimum, and that's just to get to 5.
'A few months' seems to be understating it pretty heavily. This isn't a complaint, mind. I'm not 100% on the current system, but I don't really feel like 6 to 12 months is too long a wait for Gnosis 5.
Yeah, you're right, I was thinking of transfers. For those going from 3 to 5 (which is a reasonable and often used 'max' cutoff point for Mages, it probably varies for other spheres whose numbers I haven't crunched) it takes about half a year. And I mean in MU*ing 6 months isn't that terribly long.
For someone just starting it'll take a while, barring outside catch-up mechanisms, to get to the same place. As noted elsewhere XP isn't the limiting factor on SHH, it's the delay timers. I've put in several spends and I've made about half of what I've spent back already.
