    I have been stuck on 93.7 now for 7 hours of training and cant move. Any one have a clue how to get this skill moving again? I read that this skill should only take 5-10 hours to GM at this rate it will never GM.

    I am training at Jeholm pits with as many fighters as i can get 8+ female fighters. i have over 100 spair skill points so i know i got points to go up.

    Training with a sheld.

    Any help would be welcome
     
  2. Do you have Bushido or no? If no, then DO NOT equip a shield, and use a 2 handed wep that you have no skill in.

    Additionally, you'd probably be better off at one of the sheep farms. The pits seem to be working strangely lately.

    Actually even if you DON'T have bushido, use 2 handed wep (Wep that uses fighting skill which you DON'T have)

    So if ur char has 0 mace fighting (or human 20) use for example quarter staff. Gains lot better then with a shield.

    Also if ur blue, go to tram Jhelom, disarm like 15-20 or more female fighters and take them all. In tram they can stand on each other so you can have as many as you like attacking you at the same time.

    1) Use sheeps, or any mob with low damage. Aggro one, tap out, bring him to the center of the pen, then stand on top of it. Now aggro 8 more
    2) Equip a maxed out physical resist suit (best if it has self repair, like the virtue set)
    3) have HP regen equipment, eg totem of void, crimmy, a couple jewel arties gives HPR etc. Vamp form also give HPR (and horrific beast for as well I think)
    4) Equip a weapon you have 0 skill in, you want the sheeps to hit you as much as possible, fast weapons help. One with self repair as the durability goes down as well even when you tap out. Do not use wrestling.
    5) If you have bushido, use a shield coz it reduces your parry chance. Otherwise, don't use a shield.

    I agree with some but here is how i do it.

    1. Use sheep.
    2. Go naked
    3. Stone Bushido
    4. Have healing and anat, use aids (run out of reach to heal if needed)
    5. hold spellbook
    6. use cheesy shields like buckler you buy from NPC, and have a lot in your pack.
    7. When buckler breaks grab another.

    I guess you could wear the darkwood armor if you are an elf, it has HR and is Self Repair. Just PoF it to be sure. But if I am not mistaken it has some Reflect or DCI, not sure it that would be good.

    If you have bushido, use confidence to heal - it worked wonders for me (I think it double checks parrying or something like that).

    Me I use soulstones for this but, I use an elf and make bloodwood armor a few sets and then do the sheep thing. It gives you 12 hp regen and is fairly easy to make. If one piece breaks then you carry 2 more full sets, that usually does it.

    i got to 120 fast as hell. just put a weapon in hand oposite to your weapon skill sword use fenc wep and so on dont matter if u have bush or not but use shield best one is buckler since you have slightly more chance of parry "i think". disarm the fighters to lower the damage taken and just watch it fly up.

    if you are using a shield with high anatomy you won't gain which i have noticed drop anatomy or use a dif method
     
  14. Female warriors with no weapons are the way to go. I spent a few hours there and got to 120. That was after I hit 120 Bushido, and had GM Anatomy. I just put a buckler in hand, and had 16 of them fighting me. Keep killing the males, disarming the females. No need for any armor. I think it was 3 hours to 120 from 100. I cant remember off hand, The info is saved somewhere on my other comp.

    If bushido is used shouldn't you be able to gain it this way, instead of having to do that spell over and over. Ah well to bad.
