    I just raised Cartography to ROT. I have been gaining making maps from blank scrolls. I just ate an Alacrity scroll, and can't get a gain at all now. I wasted so much time trying City and World Maps. Nothing. What do you do here to gain when you hit 70. I had read that making maps was good till 95. I'm totally screwed and don't want to waste this scroll...thx in advance

    Has RoT reset happened yet? Could that be an issue here?

    I haven't got any ROT gains today so I should be able to get my gains for today. I just hit 70. Is there something I'm missing here with ROT? Do you have to wait to start ROT till the next day when you hit it? Help Kelmo :) !

    I wish I had the answer! I am about to do an A scroll myself. It will be my first. *sweats* Maybe try after reset? See what happens? Maybe at 70 you need to do something else... That happened to me, gaining fine until a certain point then had to move to a different difficulty.

    The Cartograhy info on Stratics is old, but it says I should be able to gain with maps till 95. I just don't know if Seige is different. We need a Seige Professions Board--hehe

    I raised my cartography to 70 just yesterday and got my rot gains to 75.0 without any trouble drawing sea charts. As far as alacrities go, there are a few common mistakes that can be easy to overlook. One is do you have the room for the skills you are trying to gain? A lot of people will plan out which skills they plan to put on soulstones and then forget to do that, so that when they are thinking they should gain they are already at skill cap.

    Ok, this is so weird. I waited for ROT to reset and I just started gaining. I had No Rot gains from today as he is a finished character. Don't know why it wouldn't let me gain but I am now. Thank you both for your help.

    When does RoT reset? It has been so long since that has been an issue for me.

    7PM Central is correct, 8PM Eastern

    You should be able to make world maps up until about 99.5 or so. You'll need to decode actual maps to get the last few.

    Actually ROT time just changed. With Daylight savings time, the winter ROT is 7pm-est and 6pm-central. Summer ROT is 8pm-est & 7pm-cen.

    I was gaining fine, hit ROT, went and had dinner, came back and ate the scroll and nothing. I had already read that I could do what I was doing till 95. I had not gained any ROT gains that day so I should have had 5 gains possible. I waited till 7pm, tried again and gained. Makes no sense. I have used Alacrity scrolls before and never encountered this.
