The last line of the sniffer dog description reads “Life energy consumed upon Digging +62”. However, the buff you get, thorough search, reads “Increases acquisition chance of rare materials for 120s with Sniffer Dog’s help (25% chance extra from what I heard) Consumes 180 extra work Energy”.
When I tested it, it consumed 180 extra work energy. This is completely not worth it as two excavations is worth more than one with +25% rare material chance. Please change it to +62 energy which actually would be worth it. Having a lvl 30 buff be a bait is kinda ridiculous. Comparing it to something like green thumb (Foraging lvl 30) which only costs +30 life energy, +62 is worth it.
Also, @Roxx could we get some clarity on whether ‘Thorough Search’ works on the minigame? If not, it definitely should, that just makes sense towards incentivising players to use this skill.
