    Okay...so here are the skills of the two characters that my questions are about:

    Arms Lore: 100.0
    Blacksmithy: 120.0
    Carpentry: 100.0
    Imbuing: 0.0
    Magery: 34.0
    Mining: 100.0
    Musicianship: 46.0
    Tailoring: 120.0
    Tinkering: 100.0

    Anatomy: 100.0
    Healing: 100.0
    Lumberjacking: 100.0
    Magery: 24.9
    Parrying: 100.0
    Resisting Spells: 70.1
    Swordsmanship: 100.0
    Tactics: 100.0

    This warrior was actually the first character I ever made. I remember GMing LJ in the pits during powerhour. After some time I ended up using other chars for PVPing and making money. I haven't actually purchased the SA expansion yet because I wanted to see if my characters had been deleted before spending another $30. I would like to add imbuing to my mule's skills but I don't really have space for it so I was thinking about turning my Warrior into an able bodied material gatherer. Soo....

    Armslore on my mule - from what I read...I should keep it on there...yeah?

    Item ID - Is this important now? Does it help to have it on the mule character?

    What is the max skill Caps allowed now a days? (Once upon a time it was 700)

    Does mining affect crafting skills at all?

    How the heck to I make a metal chest?! I can only find the wooden ones.

    Any suggestions on how I could tweak my LJ Warrior into an ideal gatherer? Add Magic, drop Parrying, add mining in place of....? Soulstone thingy come into play here? I'm gonna have to buy/find/trade get one of these.

    Would it be best to just leave the Mule's skills alone and just add imbuing to the Warrior?

    Can a human be turned into a gargoyle?

    If I buy the SA CD at a game store, will it come with a book that explains most of the new quests and stuff that I'm totally confused and lost on?
  2. I would just purchase a Soul Stone (SS) from the EA store (like $10) or buy 2 or 3 :p and use it to your advantage.

    SS LJ off your warrior and add bushido, or necro, or SS off LJ and Healing and work up Bushido and Necro to make a Sampire (see Sampire sticky in the warrior section) to be a top dog!

    If you have enough SS, you can just store skills like LJ, Mining, Carp, Tink, or whatever "not used that often" skill until you need them. I have one toon that only "stores" skills until I need them on my main crafter.

    For example... my main crafter is:

    120 BS
    120 Tailoring
    120 Imbuing
    100 Arms Lore
    100 Fletch
    100 Tinkering
    50 Chiv

    When I need LJ, mining, or one of my other "not used that often" skills, I swap over Fletch or Tinkering for the other one and use it. Great way to have multiple skills and move them around

    the skill cap is 720 (if you have a 48+ month old account), mine is only 28 months so I am at a max of 710 because it's +5 per year the account is old.

    Hope this helps! Remember... Soul Stones are the way to go even though it takes a little bit of money out of your pocket :/

    They aren't craftable. You can get them as loot when fishing up sos, sometimes as loot from fighting paragon monsters and from "feeding" either plague beasts or plague beast lords. I forgot which one.

    Yes from a race change token. You will probably need to buy one from another player.

    I don't think you can buy it at the store. I might be wrong but I believe you have to download it. You can get a lot of info from Stratics though. There is a forum called Players Corner that you can ask questions, as well as the Stygian Abyss forum. Also the main page of Stratics has links to a lot of info that can help. And you can also test out a lot of things on Test Center too.

    Thanks for the responses. I can't seem to find anywhere where I can actually purchase soulstones though. :/ Suggestions on the other questions are still more than welcome, btw. Thanks again! =)

    I bought one a couple months ago and have been super happy with it. The token can be redeemed for a green soulstone. Soulstone uses are UNLIMITED now, so you can swap any skills back and forth between any toon.

    Here's the direct link:
