I got out Secudno, my Monk/Jeweler to run up some skills and jewelry for Blintz. I ran through Blintz’s level 30-39 skills and put them all in the shared bank slot, so he is set on that front for another 9 levels.
I did notice that at level 39 the skills I was making went from grey to green. I also took note of the fact that all of the items had been reset so I was getting a “first pristine” bonus for each green skill. That, along with the 20% bonus and a full load of trade skill vitality inspired me to do a little more trade skilling with Secundo.
I put together all of the raws he had for level 40-49 skills and jewelry and went to work.
In the end I ground out about 2.5 levels in less than 2 hours, which is a pretty decent rate of advancement. He hit 60% into level 53. Then I started running out of supplies and, more importantly, free time.
So if you are in the market for tier 5 rogue skills on the Crushbone server, I just put a whole bunch up for sale. (My character Vikund does all the selling though his house in Greystone Yard.)
