Illustration of someone writing.

The art of writing things. Handy for... writing things. It's also a valuable art for swordsmen and other warriors, who can infuse their art with potent additional effects.

Calligraphy is the skill of word craft. It is used by players to empower their Sword skill abilities and write stories that can be deposited into bookcases. One such bookcase can be found in the town of Serbule. Note that a few of these books contain spoilers that other ingenuous players decided to share.

To obtain calligraphy, complete the Kill Tigers quest from Joeh in Serbule.

Recipes

Using a recipe will overwrite any other active calligraphy effects, except Secret recipes. All recipes last for 1 hour, and can be boosted by first using Calligraphy Benches from Carpentry.
