    So, if you had a free mythic token laying around, and without regard for your current templates and stoned skills, which skills would you pick?

    #1 Animal Taming
    #2 Animal Lore
    #3 Imbuing
    #4 Provocation
    #5 Poisoning

    Those are what I consider the most annoying skills in the game to train.

    Animal Taming

    Poisoning or Inscription

    Then I am super lazy with bard skills. They train real easy with the bard masteries after you hit 90 so I pick Peace, Provo, Discord.

    I would sell it to a lazy player for lots of gold.

    Would you sell it to a super lazy player for very little gold?

    Animal Lore is as easy as having a horse next to you and holding down a Use Skill Animal Lore Target Last macro key for a few hours.

    Taming, Provoke, Discord and poisoning just sounds like a pain in the ass.

    I'd probably sell it, most skills can be 90 in a couple of days.

    I think Chivalry, Lockpicking, Inscription and even Imbuing are not that cumbersome, especially up to 90. As for Poisoning and Begging: I wouldn't use these skills even if I had them.

    Instead:
    1. Animal Taming
    2. Discordance
    3. Provocation
    4. Fishing
    5. Swimming (*)

    (*) This skill should have been introduced 15 years ago. Still waiting for this skill to be added to the game.

    Animal taming for sure. Maybe begging if it were made a "real skill". Their both a long haul. At my characters current level of development, with many skill already done, I'd probably pick fishing or imbuing. I'm working those (again) now on my new home shard.

    What happens if you fail a swimming skill check?

    I played some games back in like the late 90's where you just walked on the water like Jesus. It got to be a thing to name your guy Jesus and hang out on the water.

    Spellweaving? Really? I got 5-6 weavers with legendary - it´s so easy to train that... Imbuing is horrible and expensive - yes! And bard skills. Taming is worst of all...

    I have better than 12 spellweavers and just got tired of training from 0-90.

    I think over the years I've already trained the most annoying skills. Lockpocking, taming, lore, Provo, peace. Even weaving, imbuing, fishing.

    now I'm training diacord and it's only 53 now, and I'm considering buying a token, but I don't need 5 skills.

    I'm thinking the remaining 4 might be those I trained to Gm and dropped back to 0 before there were soulstones. Hiding and lumberjacking, for instance. Or Forensics, lol I'm stumped on the last 2, possibly something I have no use for, like stealing, stealth, begging, cooking.

    Ummm this thread is almost a year old @Dizzy... pretty sure the OP has already done something with that Mythic Token at this point. :postcount: to everyone that said to sell it, most skills can be trained to 90 within a few days at a reasonable cost... the problem is training from 90-120, depending on the skill it can be very costly and take an eternity to train. Thank god they invented SoA's [​IMG] and SoT's [​IMG] though :D

    I must have google "mythic tokens," ended up here, mistook it for a recent thread. Old age, I guess.

    There is this beautiful poem I know about aging gracefully and it goes like.... crap, I forgot.

    Imbuing is easy just boring. Hit gold elementals in blackthorns and collect about 10k ingots (faster than you think). Next start making anything from the ingots. Fill bag unravel. Repeat repeat repeat repeat.......
