Advy training and equipment
« Topic Start: April 26, 2018, 10:20:57 PM »
Okay, so I haven't found the answer to this question. I just wondered, does having a low level equipment act as a limit on skill using or skill training?


Advy has 5% swordfighting equipment and starts out with 5% swordfighting fame. He fights and fights and gets "you increased you swordfighting" message like 10 times, so by easy count he should have at least 15% sf fame but he still has 5%, so he upgrades his equipment from 5% to 15%... but the fame stays the same.

Does it mean that you can't train your skills above the limit your equipment imposes on you?

If so that would be sort of silly. It would make much more sense if it just lowered the level of skills you can use not the level of skills you can train.

Pretty sure it's just a limit on what you can use, not what you can get.

Certainly, if it tells you you gained some skill, you gained some skill. It won't lie to you because of your equipment.

You can have a skill of 50% (or more) and 5% equipment.
You will only use 5% of your skill because it is limited by your equipment.
