 > My Spriggan Stalker had trouble training her spellcasting skills - the first two spells consume corpses/potions, and a level 3 spell requires quite a bit of training to cast, and a lot more before spell hunger is under control. (This is also a problem for Transmuters, but at least you can spam Sticks to Snakes.) --- //[[user:JoachimSchipper]] 2011-01-22 21:40// > My Spriggan Stalker had trouble training her spellcasting skills - the first two spells consume corpses/potions, and a level 3 spell requires quite a bit of training to cast, and a lot more before spell hunger is under control.

 >>> Even so, the point remains that it's really hard to get your magical skills up as a Stalker.  Fulsome Distillation and Evaporate are both spells that are used relatively infrequently, so you need to victory dance like crazy if you want your Transmutation or Spellcasting skills to go anywhere, and Earth can't be trained at all except by victory dancing Passwall (which is naturally used even //less// frequently).  Getting Earth high enough to make Passwall's range useful and getting any skill high enough to get Petrify castable at all is fairly difficult, and with neither Earth or Transmutations being high on the list of broadly-useful long-term schools it's dubious whether it's even worth the effort.  Especially since positive aptitudes in Earth Magic are rare and never accompany positive aptitudes in both Transmutations and Stabbing.  In fact, the best Transmuter/Stabber races are Merfolk, Spriggans, and Vampires, all three of whom have negative Earth aptitudes (and Sludge Elves are positive in Transmutation/Earth but negative in Short Blades/Stabbing). --- //[[user:Sjohara]] 2011-01-22 22:45// >>> Even so, the point remains that it's really hard to get your magical skills up as a Stalker.  Fulsome Distillation and Evaporate are both spells that are used relatively infrequently, so you need to victory dance like crazy if you want your Transmutation or Spellcasting skills to go anywhere, and Earth can't be trained at all except by victory dancing Passwall (which is naturally used even //less// frequently).  Getting Earth high enough to make Passwall's range useful and getting any skill high enough to get Petrify castable at all is fairly difficult, and with neither Earth or Transmutations being high on the list of broadly-useful long-term schools it's dubious whether it's even worth the effort.  Especially since positive aptitudes in Earth Magic are rare and never accompany positive aptitudes in both Transmutations and Stabbing.  In fact, the best Transmuter/Stabber races are Merfolk, Spriggans, and Vampires, all three of whom have negative Earth aptitudes (and Sludge Elves are positive in Transmutation/Earth but negative in Short Blades/Stabbing). --- //[[user:Sjohara]] 2011-01-22 22:45//
