    Now that golems are out of the picture what's the alternative? I see people use clockwork scorpions from time to time. How high will those take me and how low do I need to be to get gains off them anyone know?

    Hey, use 100% poison weapons on wolf spiders, only problem is you need around 55 taming/lore or an alt char

    Golems arent out of the picture... they just need to be repaired by a tinker from time to time. I personally use ice ogre lords and a 100% poison weapon....but I have a Spellweaver tame them for me :) I dont think you need taming on the same account for the wolf spider....you just need a tamer to go get you one and then friend you to it...it will stick around for the day atleast.

    for ice ogre lords you need your skill around 80, 1 use jewels ( +15 weapon skill, +15 tactics, 15 hci max SSI)..remember UBW can work for you too :)
    I buy to 40, train on slimes in abyss to 50 ( usually takes about 5-10 mins) the go wack on an ice ogre...once gains slow and I hit about 100 I drop one piece of jewelry.

    Bah! Just tried both spider and ogre lord. I think zath was right, at 107 swords I might as well just camp blackthorn's. So if you see a wolf spider wandering around ice isle on Legends, tame away. He's earned a nap in a nice dark cave somewhere.

    Anywhere you can get some drops while training may as well. I got great gains working Neira spawn repeatedly. I'd also farm lucky coins in Underworld. Parox/Medusa are really easy fights too.

    started with 100 anatomy
    tactics are stuck at 25, started at 0
    fencing is stuck at 0, using the kryss with 35 fencing

    With most skills:

    -Eat the highest level power scroll you can as early as possible
    -Go to New Haven, buy the skill to 40 (400 gp)
    -Take the Instructor quest, this gives accelerated gains until 50, this must be done in Old Haven to the East
    -When you go over 50, resign/quit the quest, because if you complete it you can never do it again on that character, and one day you might want to
    -At that point you can either jewel up to 70+ and use whatever passes for a golem thee days to train all the way to cap
    -Or hit the forests, you'll gain off forest animals until 70-80, at which point you can gain off low level monsters (again, Champ Spawns are great for this reason as they have low, mid and semi-high level spawn and you get stuff while you're doing them)

    With skills like Anatomy you can also make a looping macro to spam while you're training, to either use the skill on the same target repeatedly, or to use the skill on multiple different targets within a set radius, to do this you need to use the macros for set update range (don't know if there is an E.C. equivalent of this), a good place to do this is obviously at a bank. If you do it while in Lich Form working Healing at the same time you can potentially have 2-3x the chance to gain.
