    Ok so I just used the scroll of Valiant Commendation to give my stats a +5. Stoned off one of my skills and im training snooping to raise dex. Ive trained snooping from 0-60 without one dex gain. What am I doing wrong?

    If you are fully capped in skill and need to raise a particular one you don't have to stone anything off to gain... If you want to gain dex and your cap is 120.0 Swords and you have actually 120.0 skill just go into the menu and set Swords to raise. While you aren't really raising swords anytime you would "gain" in a skill it will count that to your "check" for raising and raise the stat you want raised.

    FYI. You can do this with any stat you need to raise just set one or two skills that are at the cap to raise... even though you aren't actually raising any skill it does the "check" and raises your stat. That is as long as you are using the skill you have set to raise.

    I even seem to get stat gains faster with capped skills.

    You are gaining snoop so good there and this may sound stupid but did you point Dex up so it would raise.

    Yep. Resisting Spells skill works great for that. Have your Resist skill capped, and let Spectral Spellbinders spam spells on you, and you'll rapidly gain STR and DEX. I do that to quickly raise the STR and DEX on new chars, it even works on pets.

    Gaining just about any skill will raise stats.
    I always use the seasaw method with a fighting skill.

    at skill caps ( 720) here is a fast easy way. Turn music, presently at 0, up. set a macro to play a flute. Stand anywhere and hit the macro every 5-6 seconds...in 4-5 mins you will go up 5 pts in dex.

    For str set LJ up and stand next to a tree and hack away...if you are an elf you wont even get a log in your pack and I average about 2 gains per min.

    I repeat this works great at skill cap....no stoning off a skill required. Dont set any skill down...leave all your primary skills locked. just set music up for dex or LJ up for str.

    Another vote for Music for Dex
    Arms Lore for STR.

    Wrestling/Macing a Training Dummy also works for STR. Fencing one works for DEX.

    I do this all of the time and this is how to raise your Stats: Make sure you have a stat going down if they are maxed.
    Make sure the skill your working is set to raise, regardless if it can go up or not. If it is locked or pointing down, you will not get a gain in stats.

    Dex:
    Get a musical instrument, set a function key to Last Object, double click the instrument to play it once, then hold down the function key and let the music play. If you are at max total skill points, great. Set Music to raise, it won't, but that makes no difference. If you are not at max skill points, then let Music raise to 20, stone off and repeat. Above 20 points, your wasting your time if it is raising.

    Strength:
    Get an ax or shovel, set a function key to Last Object, double click the ax or shovel once, then hold down the function key and chop wood or mine. If you are at max total skill points, great. Set Lumberjack or Mining to raise, it won't, but that makes no difference. If you are not at max skill points, then let Lumberjack or Mining raise to 20, stone off and repeat. Above 20 points, your wasting your time if it is raising. I find that alternating between chopping and mining works better that just one of the skills.

    Int:
    Set a function key to Last Skill, get a weapon, and go to Luna Bank. Use Armslore once on your weapon then hold down the function key until you get to 20 points if your not at max. If at max, then just set Armslore to raise. Use the same setup for Anatomy on another player, NPC won't work, or use Spirit Speak. Again, If you are at max total skill points, great. Set the appropriate skill to raise, it won't, but that makes no difference. If you are not at max skill points, then set the skill to raise and use the same logic for max skill points or letting the skill raise to 20, stone off and repeat. I use all three skills at Luna bank for best results.

    Combine these two for DEX. 100 Focus still set to up will raise Dex very fast. Meditation will raise Strength. I know it doesn't make sense, but it does work... and both these skills are extremely easy to GM.

    Get a soulstone. Flush your snooping when it hits 25. Rinse repeat as often as necessary. Soulstone charge will not be used.
