    I've been working on a blacksmith character and things were going great - max'd str, had decent int for mana, minimal dex. Unfortunately I forgot to lock dex before I started doing a whole bunch of smithing to raise my blacksmith skill. So now my dex is way too high and my int has dropped to the point that I barely have enough mana to cast a single recall spell.

    Needless to say, I've locked str and pointed dex down to recover what I've lost mana-wise. However, I was wondering if there are some sure-fire ways to get int back up relatively quickly. I'm near the skill cap too, if that helps. Somewhere on Stratics I saw that herding can raise int - just being careful to lock the herding skill first. If that is a good solution, where can I get a shepherd's crook?

    Thanks for the help!

    locked skills can't give stat gains.

    Let me check on other skills you can work to gain INT

    Basara,

    I must have "misremembered" about the skill locking. I've also read about using the seesaw technique but haven't tried it yet.

    If you're below the skill cap, simply use seesaw. Works great!
