    Has anything changed with gaining stats?
    If so please send me in the right direction to how i can successfully raise them.

    I soulstoned a few chars around mage -> tamer.
    Mage had 125 int, but with tamer skills, i want 125 str.

    I have see-sawed with spirit speak and arms lore. I have left the skills locked and tried every clickable skill. Ive even had a few chops at a tree with a hatchet.

    I made a tailor on another shard from scratch, on the first day the stats raised nicely, since then while still training tailoring, i havent gained another stat. Yet im still gaining skill. With MORE than enough room for the stats to go up

    You dont need to tell me about arrows etc. Ive checked and double checked.

    Please help! Any update or advice much appreciated! :sad4:
     
  2. Stats only increase while you are gaining in that particular skill. so if you want dex get a soul stone and a packy take the packy back to your house and keep taking your snooping up to 40 and then cleansing it with your soul stone. If you want strength you can do it with mining and intel do eval. rinse repeat until you get your desired results

    I have nearly same situation on my second crafter, i simply cannot gain strength, whatever I do. I have str 97 (+8 ring, up) dex 25 (locked) int (40, up), so I am not reached cap yet. I have not had problem to gain dex and int as i wanted (not much). Weird. I have not had much time for this character yet, so I have not tryed every skill yet.

  4. Are you playing on Siege? They just did a change in 55 if you are. Other than that there shouldn't be any changes to the other shards.

    Nope not Siege, but char im on now, working peacemaking:
    Str 83 Arrow up
    Dex 10 Locked
    Int 82 Locked

    Ive gained at least 0.3 peacemake in the last 2 hours! so i would have thought that would be at least 3 more str. But no. I havent gained stats on this char for maybe 4 or 5 days?

    Maybe it something to do with you cant force a certain stat up?

    Can anybody shed some light?

    In order to gain in the secondary stat, lock the primary and practice the skill all you want!




    On Skills that are capped make sure they turned up and are not locked.

    Nice table, etc. but nothing new for me. My character is lumberjack. I do not remember exactly when I stopped gaining strength, but it was before I started to get colored wood. Now I am at 85. That's more than 200 lumberjacking gains without single str gain.

    I've seen some odd behavior in stats recently. I was using the proper skills for gains(and set to go up), and went weeks without a change. Then out of nowhere a couple weeks ago, the gains came so fast, using the exact same skills in the exact same manner, that I overshot the point where I wanted to lock them, no I can't get the gains to the other way.

    @pavel.vesely:

    According to the note at the end of the list, Lumberjacking would be used to gain dex. Rumour has it that locking the primary stat associated with a given skill will cause the secondary stat to fly upwards, see.

    For example, if you set Meditation to rise and lock intellegence, you should get good strength gains.

    Anyway, after training too many pets to count, it seems to me that working a skill that's already maxed out might give good primary stat gains. Prior to hitting GM in at least one skill, pets gain stats very slowly indeed.

    I just realized, that my other character has strength set up and not gaining strength eighter. He is at stat cap and at skill cap and gained in meditation on daily basis last week. His inteligence is set down.

    I still do not see any pattern, so I am not sending bug report yet. Next week I will make a new character, and do some check on him.
