    I copied this form UOHall and thought I'd throw it here:

    "
    "

    I've wondered if it really works like this. My 120 tailor has cap room to gain and does in magic resist which is about 86 or so. Fencing and tactics skills are both >100 with needed scrolls eaten and both under the skill caps.

    Does the fact that I'm trying to kill water els or sea serps on this char impact these gains in fencing and tactics? I gains resist from the above monsters and also I think from mundane stuff like wraiths and specters in the gy's.

    Thanks for any input.

    You will get a gain in the skill providing the task you are attempting is difficult enough, which usually means less than a 100% success chance. For weapon skills, you will need to fight something tougher to get gains at that level.

    Thanks -you've jogged my memory. A few months ago I quit harvesting spined from alligators and giant serps because I had a lot it and don't fight the dark wisps anymore. I'll gear up and go at it again since my spined bod collection has grown a bunch.

    Dark wisps are evil and I hate them just a bit less than the efreets. Thanks again.
