    Hmm the uoguide says soulstones are used to transfer skills from one character to another, but can the character who stored the skill in the first place reclaim it later? Sorry for being such a noob lol, i'm just thinking of buying a legacy token or two but i'm not even sure the stones will be of any use on siege perilous since only one character is allowed there.

    ANY char on the same account can claim the skills stored on them.

    Yeah. You can save skills to them and move them around on your char as and when needed.

    When they first came out you could only use the stone once per day. That made moving a whole set of skills from one player to another very time consuming. And a bit of a puzzle if you were trying to move multiple skills between 2-3 characters and only had 2 stones.

    Now any character on that account can claim the skill, even the one who placed the skill in the stone in the first place.

    The only restrictions are:
    If you recently exited combat. You have to wait the same time it takes when logging out.
    Have a character engaged in a New Player quest from New Haven.

    It is a great way to build 1 skill and share it between 2 characters. Like if you have a mage tamer and an archer tamer, but don't want to raise taming up twice. Switching out the taming skill is quick.

    I actually run a Sampire Archer who has also raised swordsmanship. I stone off Swords and parry for Archery and Healing, depending on what I am fighting.
