I was wearing an excavator cape to the silver ore to make health essences. I was going to reset there and mine for experience (I forgot I need nexuses <_< ). When I #reset, the cloak stopped mining two at a time. I thought at first that siver ore had been lightened, but Daxon was sure I was only mining one at a time. Sure enough, I was.
I think it happened because I reset, so the perk was erased and the client didn't "read" that I had a cloak because I reset my perks.
This was only trivial because I could have easily been wearing an MM cape to SKF or something and lost 15k worth of material.
Is this a bug, or is this supposed to happen?
