Bao Dur is my skill master. When I attempt to create items with him, the check is made against his skill points. Yet, when I attempt to break down items, the check is made against my character's Repair skill, who gets 1 skill point per level, which I've been dumping into Awareness. So my char has 0 Repair skill. All breakdowns will result in 1 component. So basically if I wanted to break down my entire inventory at the workbench, I'd be getting like 65 components, using Bao Dur, T3, my char or anyone.
I know the lab station seems to work as intended. If I use various characters, the check is made against them individually, not against my char solely for breaking down items.
I'm wondering if this problem is affecting everyone, and does anyone know a solution, if it is indeed a bug? I'm honestly about to reroll a new char just to take the points in Repair because in this run-through the workbench is of little use to me.
