Obtaining tradeskills --------------------- To begin your journey as a craftsman, seek out Amarisse at the Delosian Crafters Union in Delos. Once there, ASK AMARISSE GAIN <trade skill>. Cooking, Furnishing, Jewellery, Artistry, Beverages, and Tailoring also each have a permit cost of two hundred credits, these will need to be purchased before the skills can be gained from Amarisse. Additional tradeskills ---------------------- To encourage a thriving economy and community, additional tradeskills carry an extra cost to learn. If you'd like to become more self-sufficient, you may purchase more tradeskill permits for fifty credits each, allowing you to learn an extra trade skill. Each of these skills also carries a compounding lesson cost to learn. So your third tradeskill (first additional skill) will cost fifty percent more lessons to reach transcendent. Your fourth (second additional) will cost fifty percent more again. This caps at 300% of the base cost (base cost + 200%). Use the TRADESKILLS command to see which tradeskills you have and which slot they are in. To purchase an additional tradeskill permit, simply visit Amarisse in Delos and BUY TRADESKILL PERMIT. There is no pressure to learn additional skills though, there will definitely be another adventurer around who will be able to assist you! Forgetting tradeskills ---------------------- Should you wish to change tradeskills in the future, you can FORGET <tradeskill> and you'll be refunded 50% of your invested lessons in that skill.
