Could we get a sticky or update the faq to list what skills that count towards and the amount of skill points that is needed to get the lower mana requirements on specials. I know I've read it somewhere at one point in time, but I've noticed that it has been brought up quite a bit in some of the recent posts but the problem is that normally all that is said that due to humans JOAT they reach the number easier and here is some of the skills that count. Found this in the Stratics Weapons page. The Mana Cost of each special move can be reduced if the warrior's skills are high enough. Add up the skill points for Swords, Mace Fighting, Fencing, Archery, Parrying, Lumberjacking, Stealth, Poisoning, Bushido and Ninjitsu. If the total lies between 200 and 299, subtract 5 from the Mana Cost. If the total is 300 or more, subtract 10 from the Mana Cost.
