I am impressed that it sounds like maxing a study area will take quite some time. The caveat would be that spending months to complete a study area should have at least some noticable effect - if it's only a 1% more bonus to a skill for the last tier that takes weeks to finish, then people might only study the "easy" tiers, taking less overall time and thus completing all or most areas of study to a mid level. The last tier of a study tree will hopefully unlock another area, or a usable skill, etc, so are seen as a worthwhile goal.

The first 5 paragraphs on page 3 nailed it. I'm really looking forward to spending a lot of my spare time in Alganon -- maybe only an hour a day, maybe two, or maybe 4-5 hours on Saturday. Whatever the time, it is nice to know the Studies system is available for growth during non-game time.

It's fantastic to see the game getting more and more coverage on all this sites. I am really looking forward to see the study system in action after reading all the details about it. Sounds like a great system to me... Should be interesting to see how people will use it when they get their hands on it.

I do like the idea of being able to study those recipes that other players have an quicker means to obtain, so through persistance you can have those same rewards, as long as it doesn't take so long that the reward is no longer worth it by the time you get to the goal. I know going through EQ2 again from the beginning has just shown how worthless all those items I used to crave to obtain have become.
As pointed out above as you go up tiers as the timing gets longer I hope there is more reward than just another 1 point. I do hope for some prerequisites to some pretty exciting stuff would be the incentive to go that extra step further.
