    Bug Name:
    Gamebreaking Season Life Skill Ranking bug with Fughars Timepiece
    Bug Description:
    If you transfer your high non-season life skills on a level 1-25 non-season character and then use "Fughar's Timepiece" to change your current season character with that level 10 non-season character, you will carry all the high life skill ranks from non-season to season mode.
    This is devastating to the joy of a new season kills all the fun of starting a new season and chasing life skill ranks etc.

    A friend of mine also tried this method with a non seasonal character who was artisan 4 gathering and he confirmed the method.

    Screenshot 1: sailing (for reference, Im master 9 sailing and did the sailing quests almost every day since start of the season. Guru 11 would take many months to get)

    I would be super happy if this would be prevented. This has no good benefits and only devestates players joy as those high ranks are impossible to reach in a season.
    How to reproduce/proof:
    Steps ..
    1. get high life skill ranks on your new non-season character.
    2. use Fughar's Timepiece and switch your current season character with this non-season character.
    3. your new seasonal character still has all high end life skill ranks and is forever rank 1 on season.

    So a Very Important Reason that this ISN'T a bug;
    This is Not something that happens automatically, this is something that the player has to do actively, in order for it to happen.

    So, not really a bug, and shouldn't be posted in the Bug section. You could add it to Suggestions, or Discussion.

    True, this does not happen automatically. Players have to know about this and follow these steps in order to exploit this bug (or exlpoit or whatever you want to call it^^).
    When someone uses the non-season life skills, it just kills all the fun of the new seasonal ranking and most of it's season.

    I'd like to poke you, @Kolka so this gets to your attention as well :)

    Not quite sure it's an exploit as such, since the mechanisms in place allow players to do this, only if they choose to do so.

    I mean it is up to someone, whether they want to take out some of the fun from the game or not. It isn't actually exploitable, because one of your characters has to do the life-skill leveling anyway, so whether you choose to transfer it to another character ot not, that is still up to the player, right?
