I'm training tactics and swords right now on a new character. I'm "new" to training "new characters", because I haven't really trained any in years because I have most characters built. Ok. So I bought tactics to like 25 or whatever and it never goes up. My crystal ball of knowledge says all the creatures I'm fighting are too difficult for tactics. So is it the case this skill will never raise unless I go fight like bears or something? Next swords is over 50 now after fighting earth eles, trolls, and ettins. So I go to the cyclopean warrior and my crystal ball of knowledge says they are too difficult and my skill never increases. I mean these guys are falling left and right, but no skill gain? So I go to the ettins again and massive skill gain being "optimal" according to the crystal ball of knowledge. I wish I could just ask this frikken ball if the devs have messed up skill gains to the point you won't gain unless you fight trash creatures. So crystal ball of knowledge...what's up? -Lorax p.s. These "developers" are getting on my nerve!!! p.p.s I'm going to submit it as a bug. This is ridiculous.
