    Hello all. I have a question about using SOAs for combat skills when in ROT.

    I know that the 15 minute lifespan of an alacrity scroll relates to game time (not RL time) and I'm familiar with the 'power gaming' technique for using scrolls of alacrity for crafting skills during ROT, (i.e. login, get the gain, logout immediately).

    The thing is that when you train combat skills it always(?) involves a mob or player flagging on you. As I understand it, this will prevent being logged out immediately, even if inside a friendly house.

    So my question is, can you get a combat skill gain and still be able to logout immediately?

    Thanks in advance for any response, even if the answer is simply 'you can't'.

    Be in a house and have a friend attack you - autodefend to get your gain and log out (i think that works)

    Thanks very much. I'll give that a try.
    Do you know whether that would also work with a pet or golem? I'm thinking login, say "all kill", target self, say "all stop", then logout.

    What do you mean by auto defend? Just hit them cause they attacked you? I remember not being able to log cause a corpser flagged me and I swung at it..

    Cast an EV hit it then dispel, rinse and repeat. Boring but effective.

    It flags you, so you can't insta-log. You have to wait 2 mins :(

    Costs more SoAs that way as you can only get 7-8 gains per SoA.
