    Hello,

    I'm wondering if there's a way to gain Taste ID past 75 naturally? I know there are SoTs and the Discord trick, those are my last resort :)

    Anyone have some insight?

    Thanks :D

    I think I had this GM'd at one time before soulstones but I don't have it anymore.
    A couple questions come to mind,
    Why would you want to? (hehe just have to ask)
    Have you tried poisoned food?
    What have you tried?
    Have you grabbed a crystal ball of knowledge and turned it on when you attempted to gain?

    Hiya,

    Well, I want the skill because of the title it gives! That and I want to finish every skill :D

    Well, I'm at 75 now. I worked regular food to 50, at which point it stopped giving me gains. I then worked it on around 80 poisoned fish steaks until 75 at which point it stopped gaining again.

    I've also tried kegs. I'll have to dig up a crystal ball of knowledge and see what it has to say, ty!

    I actually just started a char tonight, with 50 Taste Id ... so I will be right on your coattails with this training ;-) Let me know what works! heh


    edit: FAQ says poisoned fish steaks .. that's it ... though looks like it's from 2004 ... so not sure how accurate still ...

    Any luck with this?

    I started a new char with 50 Taste Id, and trained using one poisoned rib.

    50-60 went nice and quick

    60-70 slowed dramatically, but still chugged along gaining

    70-75 super slow gains, but gaining

    Sat at 75 for a few hours, no gains at all ... looks like I too have hit the wall ... maybe I burned my tongue, I don't know .. but the gains sure stopped at 75 you're right ...

    Been searching like mad trying to find an answer to this ....

    This is the best I've come up with heh ...

    A post on UOForums from December 15th 2006 :


    I hope this hasn't actually been ignored for rolling up on 4 years now ...


    The search continues ....


    edit : I posted the question to the 'Ask the Devs' forum .. it is in for approval now, so we will see if anything comes from that ...
