    I am experimenting with begging and decided to work it up from 23 which I got it trained from a gypsy. I got to 25 and am not stuck, I cannot get anymore gains. Skill arrow is up and it is a new character that has only 195.9 total skill points. I have tried logging out, going through a moongate, changing server lines and hitting different towns asking different npc's. After an hour I am still at 25. Is this a bug?

    Sounds like a bug. An hour is a long time to go without a gain at that level.

    I'd try a scroll of transcendence to bump it up a little, even 0.1. These scrolls are usually cheap if not bought in the lead-up to Halloween. Some people suggest dying along with the methods you mentioned.

    If nothing else works, and I only ever recommend this as an absolute last resort, page a GM.

    I ended up logging out for about 30 minutes and when I logged back in started begging again I got a gain on the 3rd try. It sure is a slow skill to work. After about 90 minutes I got up to 33.1 but gains really slowed down again so I stopped for the night.

    It was my impression that gains were faster in Heartwood than in Luna.

    Plus you have the tiny buzz of collecting rare beggables.

    I made a UO Assist macro for begging set it up in Luna in the Mage shop. There are 3 Mages and a couple of herbalist and alchemists in there. That's a nice number of NPC's that will stay in a tight area. I just set the macro up to hit each one and plugged in delays. No running around for me!
