Autodidacticism Mechanics

Obtaining and Reading Books

Reading a text book using the Autodidacticism skill requires a text book in the range of your skills level. For example, if a players Animal Handling is level 6, then the player must first obtain an Animal Handling Textbook (Levels 1-10). A players Autodidacticism skill must be at the same level or higher than the skill to be trained also. For example, if a player has level 30 Animal Handling, but only level 15 Autodidacticism, then the player would be unable to use the Animal Handling Textbook (Levels 21-30). However, the player would be able to use the Animal Handling Textbook (Levels 11-20).

Currently, the two main ways to obtain textbooks are by purchasing them from NPC's or crafting them.

Hirochi the Booklord sells a limited selection of low level Combat Skill textbooks that go up to level 30.

Wintria Irasce sells a limited selection of low level Trade Skills textbooks that go up to level 30.

Non-Fiction Writing is the second way to obtain textbooks. The textbooks can either be crafted or purchased from other players who crafted them.

Currently, the textbooks available appear limited to Combat Skills, Beast Skills, and some Trade Skills.

A Full List of skills for which textbooks are available can be found below. (List coming soon-ish)

Once the textbook has been chosen and obtained, the next step to using the Autodidacticism skill is to find the Autodidacticism Table in Rahu. The Autodidacticism Table can be found in the safe section of Rahu in the building where Hirochi the Booklord and Wintria Irasce reside.

To begin training with the textbook, a player must select the Autodidacticism Table and "gift" the book to the table. Training using Autodidacticism acts as a Hang Out and once the book has been given to the table, a warning will appear notifying the player that beginning training will cancel out other currently active Hang Outs. An option will appear to train for 1 day, 3 days, or 5 days. Selecting the 1 day Hang Out will use 5% durability on the textbook, 3 days will use X% durability, and 5 days will use 25% durability. The longer the training chosen, the more experience a player will receive upon completion of the Hang Out.

Once an Autodidacticism textbook Hang Out has been completed, the player will receive X experience in the combat skill and X experience in the Autodidacticism skill.
