    OK, so for skill training I get that you want to have the skill of what you are training on to be +/- 20ish skill compared to your character skill. The way I understand it, you do this in order to get around a 50% chance to hit based on skill vs skill.

    So, would adding in HCI on suit pieces alter this rate and thus alter your skill gains chances? Or is the chance to gain solely a function of skill compared to skill and adding HCI would only help your skill gain by adding additional successful blows?

    Part of the reason I ask is the inherent 5% HCI that the gargoyle race gets, so I am wondering if I need to scale my monsters a little differently than I did my elf.

    Weapon skill check is the only thing that does count for training weapon skill. Hci or dci does not matter, just hit or get hit.Found it always faster with a good amount of hci.

    I always train with HCI. Usually because part of my healing regimen involves life leech... and thus I need to hit even while training.

    I always use max HCI and max HLD for faster gains.
