Agreed. It's a bit silly that we use our porter charges when we have an empty ore box sitting in our inventory. I very much like the idea of toggling the porter effect on and off, as there are many situations in which I would like to have it, but not use it's charges (farming, hunter, and now mining).
Wonderersaid: porters and gote? I feel like if we have an ore box it should take the ores first rather than the gote/porter.
Those are automatic though, the box you have to click.
Say I have an inventory full of porters with 1 inventory space. If the ore box was prioritized with current functionality, the porter would do nothing until i manually filled my ore box 120 times with 1 ore.
I too have been use to using porters to transport ore to the bank. Now with the ore box, filling one's inventory with porters is wasted space needed for ore to put into the ore box. I agree with others in that we need the option of what to use when.
I am what I am! Acknowledging this is the beginning; and my growth is yet to end!
