    Cripes man.... lots of skills in 80`s on my garg thrower and still 61 str and 60 dex. WTF. I have used LJ`ing to raise Str to no avail....tried music to raise dex to no avail. They just slooooooooowly creep up there maybe gaining 1 or 2 points a day and nothing I do changes that. There has got to be a better way. Maybe by the time I`m 120 i`ll be 95 str woohoo! *crosses fingers*

    Anyone?

    I am not sure about the exact number, but i remember a cap of 5 combined stat points per day. Painful if you start a dexxer here and you need the dex for weapon and bandages. If i remember right, it took me around 4 weeks to put that damn boomerang away and be able to use a cyclone.
    Only thing you can do is to lock int and gain only str and dex, and try to train a lot of skills at once that raise one or the other.

    If you turn up musicianship and play an instrument, dex should shoot up very quickly. Raise music to 25-or-so, then turn it down, turn up arms lore, and use it on a weapon to 25-or-so. Seesaw between the two.

    I typically get my desired stats established before proceeding with skill training.

    Assuming it's still the same, stats are on RoT timers.

    Lock Int, pluck a harp, log out for 15 minutes, pluck another harp, repeat.

    I want to say cap of 11 per day? Could be wrong on that.

    Pub 55 notes say max 15 stat gains a day. It does not say how long between stat gains but my experience is about 15 min.

    *Shakes head in total disbelief*

    Put whatever stat you want arrow up, put whatever stat you want arrow down.

    Do absolutely nothing but watch the numbers and lock them at whatever suits your taste.

    Am I missing something here??? I do NOTHING different and get whatever number I want reguardless of whatever skills I use, unlocked or not. It takes like 10-15 mins per gain and I get about 10 a day as I remember.
     
  7. Ultimaholic, all you do is lock 2 stats and have the arrow set to 'up' on the one you want to raise, providing you're not maxed out on stats.

    If you're maxed on stats, just lower the stat you don't need as much and raise the one you want, while having one locked. Keep your eye on them so you don't go too low in the one set to lower.

    You'll gain 15 stats a day at 15 minute intervals.

    Ahhh 15 minute intervals.... No wonder I only get a few gains a day. Well good to know. And yes Guardian.... Thats what I`ve done obviously, but at a point where I should be able to do more than lizardmen/ogre`s I can not. Simply because I`m stuck with boomerang until dex is high enuf for Glaive or Cyclone to be an option.Pirty freekin slow at 60 something not to mention my crappy range....compared to skills which are 80+ on a few and hi 70`s on rest.

    Now that I know they are on 15 minutes cycles I`ll just plan accordingly.
