    Angry Skill pill and hunting return

    My return from hunting has greatly decreased after I consumed Skill gain increase pill (100% for 10 hrs).

    I do understand that skill gain during any type of action is one form of profit.
    But I do not understand how consuming a pill (which is supposed to be an extra) makes my return decrease.

    I grind 200ped and get 100ped back... 50%? really?

    Not much testing but I have cycled about 5-600ped ammo and lost everything just in a day.

    I used a 100% 10h pill in August. 8000 ped in, 7900 out(tt). You were saying?

    Skills are a part of your return and have value.

    If you have more skill gains than normal, the returns otherwise will show lower than normal. Nothing is free or extra here.

    I will say though that once skilled to a point, its a nice way to pay yourself back to just chip out what you do get. So what is a PED drain coming up in skill levels, becomes skill excess later, which makes for nice PED on the side, to the tune of hundreds of PEDS a day if you cycle enough.

    I chip out something with every ESI I get, and still gain more skills much faster than I really need.

    Using skill pills has no negative correlation to loot returns.

    I have nothing to back that up, but I say it with confidence.
