I havent played in about 5 years or so, so I had a few questions. Does 8x8 still work? What kind of skill gain system is there on normal shards? With regards to magic wands that have -magery skill on them. Do they still work with skill gains? For example, equipping the wand and casting a lower tier spell will net you better gain/mp cost. And help you hit GM quicker/easier. And finally, I heard you could level magery from swinging the -magery wands. I read a faq about leveling magery this way using a golem. Does this work? And what kind of weap would I need? Thanks in advance if you can explain any of this.
