A couple of quick questions.

    I just have a couple of questions.

    1. Do most of you use the sacrifice virtue. I mean get to Lord and then sacrifice so you can get the resurrection reward? I heard that the amount of sacrifice decays pretty fast so if you aren't getting Lord often it's not really worth it.

    2. I have 94 blacksmithy, was thinking of using a + 30 or +60 ancient hammer so I can start burning some runic hammers. Will that be okay?

    3. Resisting spells -- I have about 100 or so resisting spells. So it gave me 40 in all of the damage type resist. I thought it stacked with my armor resists, but apparently it did not. So does that mean that even if I have 40 in all resists naked from resisting spells skill, I still have to find equipment to from 0-70 for the damage type resists? I bought the wrong equipment thinking i didn't need that much resist :(

    4. Do any of you know the location of the safe house in New Haven where you can use the spellbinders to take up resist. I was thinking its one of the farm houses there but I'm not sure.

    1. The main thing is getting it up to knight of sacrifice. Once you get it up to knight, it only takes sacrificing one of the lower levels of fame once or twice in the week, to keep it at Knight.

    2. It should be, but personally I'd take it higher and use the +30. It takes 120 skill plus the +30 hammer, or your current skill and a +60, to be 100% exceptional on all items - and the +60 is much harder to get.

    3. Yes, you bought the wrong equipment. The resists have never stacked. Trust me, suits would be REALLY sick if they did.

    4. Doesn't matter which one it is - you can get banned using it to train, even if attended, if a GM spots you, or someone reports you. The Terms of Service and the clarifications Devs have stated indicate you can't use terrain, etc. intentionally to prevent creatures from reaching you in a manner to where you have no risk of death, for training or any other purposes. This goes back to the old exploit where one could get guards hung up on terrain and use them to train archery or spells, long before AoS, but it applies to any non-PC, be it spellbinders in Old Haven, or illegally designed houses with penned released animals.
