Problem with old bard masteries book?

    Hello,

    I'm having trouble with my masteries book.

    I'm a bard tamer with 120 real skill across the board. I had the old bard masteries book. I got the new taming masteries quest from Hawkwind and defeated the assigned boss. The new taming primer appeared in my backpack. My old bard masteries book was renamed "Book of Masteries," and in it, I can see all of the 45 masteries - but its label still shows 6 spells, not 45. I did not receive a new book of masteries.

    I ate the taming primer and got the proper success message. Hawkwind says my taming quest is completed. However, on my book of masteries, I cannot bring up the context menu to switch masteries.

    This is in EC with the default UI.

    Is there an alternate way to get that context menu up? Am I missing something? Or is my book bugged? I have shift-click enabled for my context menus, and that does not work, nor does single clicking the book.

    I logged out/in and restarted the client, in case that would help. It did not.

    Thanks in advance!

    Kitiara

    The book should have been converted when you first logged in, but it doesn't seem to be the case.
    I would redo the peace mastery quest to get a brand new, non bugged book.

    I am also in the EC and default UI, with shift-click for context menus.

    Ended up just right clicking on my book (not shift click, just right click) and it opened a new option to "Switch Mastery".

    I chose that and a new menu opened with a list of all the masteries available to that character.

    Didn't notice if my book showed 6 spells or 45 spells before I switched masteries though.

    Thanks, everybody! I wasn't able to access the "switch masteries" option by any means of clicking, so I took the bugged book out of my pack and went and re-did the bard quest (I did discordance, discording goats). I got a new book and it properly showed 45 spells, and my bard and taming masteries all showed up with the context menu properly working. I guess the old book was bugged and did not convert properly.

    Thanks again! The new book is working. :)

    i never found a fix just had to do the peacemaking quest to get full ones... the quest is easy and repeatable to get as many books as you need.

    Drop the book to the ground and pick it back up.

    I still have 3 books that the context menu says 6 spells. I read this post and went to try it, dropping all 3 books on the ground outside my house. I can open the book and scroll down, it shows all 45 spells. If I switch to magery mastery the spells appear on the right and I can pull them off to a hot bar.
    However the context menu on the book still says 6 spells and if I try to actually cast the spell from that icon I get the message that I don't have that spell

    I dropped the book on the ground outside of house, no luck. Tried to drop inside a house no luck. The book still displays 6 Spells and does not have a menu when I right click.

    Guess it is time to start working on music and Peace again. Or just go and do a spawn.

    I had a few before. I kept them in my pack through a maintenance cycle and they converted and were useable.
