    When I left the game 3 years ago, 8x8 no longer worked. I was just reading a guide in the spellcaster forums and it says that magery, necro, music, peace, spirit and a few others are movement based and recomends using a boat and sailing forward and work the desired skill. The guide was posted in August 2008. Does this mean movement based gains are back? Is it 8x8 or just movement based? Thanks!

    Well, I can tell you, based on my experience, and second hand information from a friend, 8X8 still works. It works for magery, and it works for mysticism, I don't know what else it works for. I don't know if it works exactly the same way it used to way back when. I don't think it does, but you will get more gains in magery and mysticism if you 8X8.

    8x8 might still work but there is no point in it after the anti-macro code was removed. So it's a waste of time you no longer need to move anymore.

    8x8 is no longer required for skill gain, as per the reason UOKaiser noted. You'll gain just as quickly standing still as you will moving. If it makes you feel better to move, have at it.

    When Age of shadows came out I went from 50 necro to 120 in under 3 hours.

    It was much faster then todays stand and cast, the older way allowed you to get a gain every 8th tile when done right.( on a boat just allowed you to do it in a strait line).

    Of all the ways to gain I liked power hour the most.

    Power hour was fun but RoT rules! No easier way to gain skills.
