Well, Just back from a long break. Logged into my characters to see where they all were and to see about placing a house when I noticed that 4 of my soulstones were missing! 2 hours later, searching backpacks and bank boxes, still no joy. An hour later, after listing all my char skills, it seems that my 120 provoke, 120 mace and fencing skills were gone! I think that the fourth stone must have been empty. I must admit that the initial excitement of logging back on was tempered by the thought of retraining provoke from scratch. (at least is wasnt cart or lockpicking). I have read the faq's and posts and have a fair idea of where to go but the thought fills me with dread. Has to be done though as I am a Bard at heart. Any tips appreciated.
