Alacrity help

    I ate an alacrity yesterday.. and gained 15 times before it crapped out. I still had time left on the scroll, and logged out until the next day's RoT. I then never gained a thing after 3 times of trying, logging out for 15 mins, and trying again. I am wondering if there is a better science to this scroll than just trying and logging out. It seems to me that there is a cap, even if I only gained 15 times and only 4.7 in skill with time left on the scroll.

    Even during RoT I have never before tried to gain over and over, and never get .1 in skill. Please help a semi-newbie out.

    It was magery, about 95.7ish.. too late now to do anything about it. But It's annoying how I forced myself to not play, only to not gain at all, even during RoT. I was casting gate and EV (Even tried casting spells with a -27 mage weapon, no luck).

    On a side note even after setting Eval to gain, I haven't gained at all tonight. I feel gipped.

    erm, you do have points free I assume?

    You wouldn't be the first, nor I suspect the last, to curse and fume over no gains and then blushingly realise you've hit skill cap.

    Been there - and anyone who claims he hasn't is quite possibly lying :D

    Did you do it at your house and log out immeadiatly after you got a gain?

    Did you gain any other skills that same day?

    You should have got alot more than 15 individual gains, I think.

    Did you have the skill room to gain as Petra- suggested?

    I don't want you to pay me back, it's just i wanted you to get the full use out of that scroll.

    Red, I think the 'no comment' is the equivelant of 'taking the 5th', unspoken admission of guilt, especially with the addition of the :dunce: smiley :D

    :lol: we've *all* been there I think.
