    This will be a bit of an unusual bug report.

    Back when @Chris implementing a tiered system for decay, he said:

    At some point later, I am almost certain he mentioned that there was a bug in the implementation of this whereby the full rate was accidentally set to kick in at level 80, and not 81.

    This is quite significant, since the player acquires the 5th glyph at level 80, but the extra decay is not applied until level 81.

    Currently, Jaan has been reaching level 80 on a bunch of skills, and it seems that her decay rate is jumping up considerably. Unfortunately, it is difficult for me to determine what the decay "should" be since there are so many moving parts.

    Since I never heard anything about this bug being fixed, I thought it might be a good idea to report it. I'm hoping it is much easier for somebody to go and check the actual equations then it would be for me to conduct experiments and present data for this one. ;)

    Was this one ever resolved as of R51? Myself and a few others were wondering. Thank you.
