Phrenology Overview

Phrenology lets you study the skulls of many different types of enemies. Skulls are broken up into 3 tiers (normal/impressive/astonishing), and as you level up in each subskill you can study better of skulls that type. Phrenology gives bonuses to Mentalism and Psychology, as well as Mentalism/Psychology critical hit chance for each type of mob.

You can study skulls from most humanoid creatures (animal skulls can be extracted, but there's currently no Phrenology subskill for them). Extraction requires some version of a Skull Extractor and success depends on your Butchering level.

In-Game Description

An understanding of how sentient creatures think and feel, based on careful study of the shape of their skulls. This base skill represents your overall Phrenological prowess. (Phrenology skills provide critical-hit chances to all Psychology and Mentalism attacks against the corresponding type of creature. Phrenology also has more esoteric uses.)

Training Phrenology

  • Glajur in Kur Tower will teach you Phrenology at Comfortable. He also sells some Phrenology recipes - anything he does not train has to be learned through scrolls.

Studying Skulls

The actual act of studying requires Craniometers, which can be bought from Glajur. They have a 1% chance of breaking with every skull studied. Higher tiers of skulls require better Craniometers.
