If you always wished you could get a Skill Tutor Statuette but had no more new characters to make and/or don't enjoy using the Enhanced client and doing the new character starter experience, you will be very pleased to know that a comparable item is now available by doing a quest in the Royal City. You get the quest from Ortlem, a mystic NPC in the Royal City south of the "farmer's market" area. He asks for 100 dragon's blood and 100 daemon bone and even gives suggestions on what to kill to get them. The reward for the quest is a blessed Crystal Ball of Knowledge. Turn it on and use a skill (e.g., cast a magery spell) and the crystal ball will tell you whether or not you are training at the optimal level or doing something that is too hard or too easy. Thank you, UO team. This is a wonderful gift!
