    Hello All,

    Is the skill gain slow still or is it faster then the original version? Please advise.

    Thanks!

    Than vanilla DFO? Uncomparably faster. On top of that, no bloods walls, no afk macoring, etc. is needed or possible.

    Gains are higher in general since DFO launch, spells and stats are all front loaded, spells no longer level up on other players, and buffs/heals/etc. level up through the scribing system, could be missing some other changes as well.

    and a whole lot sooner for a "viable" character " due to speeds and front loading.

    Spell scrolls are craftable, for spell gains.

    You no longer gain spell skillups and weapon skillups by hitting players.

    And the majority of the damage you will gain from a spell caps out in the 60's, over that is for gravy.

    what is that scribing system? and since the gain is quick, is there a diminishing return for people with no life? ( A.K.A Smooth )

    In most cases up to 75 will be 95% of what you'd need in a spell/skill with the exception of crafting. (Literally in scaling of effectiveness.) Naturally masterys would need to be unlocked and leveled as they previously were to the same point.

    This only really applies to the weapon and spell skills and spells though. Crafting is in it's own criteria.

    Scribing is the new "Leveling" crafting for magic spells. You acquire papyrus via papyrus plants that spawn throughout the world (Naturally can trade with other players for it as well) to create blank scrolls. Then you use essences which can be farmed from various creatures throughout agon. Combining the essences with blank scrolls through the scribing interface allows you to choose which spell you want to make a scroll for which will increase your level in that spell and school. Each scroll and spell scroll you make also requires a small fee of gold to complete.

    Each scroll will give you approximately 2 points at level 1 of a spell, then scales down as your spell level increases eventually becoming less than 1 above spell level 60. (Hopefully I worded that in a way that makes sense.)

    Scribing as far as I remember is bought at the arcanist and the quill is bought at the merchant which is required to scribe as well.

    Thanks a lot. So basicly using spells in the world while farming doesnt level them up.

    Actually, If I recall, lesser magic slowly does level through use and any damage spells still level through use. However utility spells or spells with no enemy target will not level from their casts. (Can't remember if debuffs level with use or not still) however in comparison to using scrolls it will feel extremely lethargic so I wouldn't recommend dedicating time to spamming a spell purely for leveling it.

    Just think about early EU skillgain how tedious it was. Omega Exile had a crazy character early on with that difficult skillgain... Wonder if he'll make an appearance (Ninja Zed)

    Hi VileBot!

    Offensive spells still level up on use on monsters! Only spells like debuffs that were AFK macroed in the past and some others cannot level up on monsters anymore.

    Check out this post for a full list of what ONLY skills up through us of scrolls.
