watch skill
« on: May 25, 2018, 12:36:24 PM »
is it possible to get this skill beyond novice?  Been playing for a few years, use it regularly on most of my PCs, but have never seen it bump.

Yup, and it's pretty awesome at higher levels. You start to pick up on a lot of things that aren't obvious. I don't know if it caps at novice for some classes or characters, though.

Here's a tip for all you Bynners...

WATCH the person you're sparring. Always. You can't codedly watch anyone else, anyways, and you may as well catch if they're starting to falter or if there is an opening you wouldn't catch otherwise.

It's one of the better ways to skill it up. I always figure you're new to the sparring scene if you aren't using it.

another thing to note about watch, its stated in the helpfile but not often reconinzed.

Watch, with high skill in it, and high skill in things that are sneaky, makes it even easier to detect said things - such as theft.

It skills up pretty quickly if you watch NPCs or critters that hide.
