    My skills appear stuck, though I havent been testing this super thoroughly/lengthy. I am trying to swap out healing, anatomy, and wrestling on my mage for musicianship, provocation, and peacemaking, and the other day made rapid skill gains starting this switch. Today, some of the new skills are still under 30%, but dont seem to be gaining any more. Musicianship is under 70%, but made no positive gains after about 2 hours of macroing (thats like over 1000 tries). My magery is over 90%, so I am not expecting a lot of skill increase in 2 hours with that one, but Id feel pretty crappy knowing Ive tried to rase magery for 10 hours and diddnt know my character was bugged somehow.

    Obviously I checked my skull up/down/locked situation, and that doesnt appear to be the problem. I have 100 in herding set to down train, and also like ~50 in several other skills set to downtrain (though I have used 700 points). I verified this both within the client and razor - there is plenty of pool of skillpoints to take from set to available.

    Am I just getting horrible luck, or is there any kind of known situation where you stop gaining skills? TIA, and sorry-in-advance if I am doing something crazy noob and nerfing myself.

    Same deal, I very occasionally seem to raise Musicianship, but Peace/Provo dont raise at all. I have over 100 available skillpoints to spend (have 100 herding set to downtrain, and close to another 100 points in 2-3 other skills set to downtrain).

    Magery is raising, albeit very slow, as with magic resist. And I did get 0.1 skill in Musicianship today. Not sure why I never raise Provo or Peace tho!

    Ok I figured this out, Provo works a bit differently on this server than whan I am used to on other servers. It both gains slower, and requires more significant challenge. The slow gain was tricking me into thinkiing it wasnt working with somewhat-difficult mobs, and the challenge-requirement was tricking me into thinking it wasnt working with lowbie mobs. Im used to being able to get to lvl ~70 around Britain lol.

    Still, seems super slow. Did it all night last night on a ratman and lizardman and only got 5 points. Guess I need to upgrade to trolls lol. Glad to know im not "bugged" lol.
