The satyr trick still works, shouldn't take you even an hour to finish. Or, you can live off .1 gains per day or two (depending on your total skill level) from the GGS system. Personally, I used the GGS since I had everything stoned off and it took about two days. For lockpicking, I used the satyrs and it took about 3 hours to finish, which was pretty sweet. Your choice I guess.

5 days, work it with your guaranteed gain (ggs). Here's what I did.

Buy/collect about 10 Cleverly maps. Make sure the cleverly map is marked 'Tattered' if it is NOT 'Tattered' it is already decoded and you can't gain from it.

Lock all of the skills and set only Cartography to raise. Log the character off for 24 hours.

Login at a certain time ... say noon. Decode maps until you get your GGS. Log out do something else.

Login again a little after noon the next day, decode maps until you get your GGS. Log out do something else.

Repeat that until you are GM.

Unless you have 100s - 1000s of Cleverly maps the rate at which you get gains at 99.5 is so low I couldn't detect it.

Its important to have all your other skills locked so you don't gain in something by accident. And its also important to make sure you wait a FULL 24 hours so notate the time you get your first .1, and try to time that when you know you can be at the keyboard at roughly the same time every day.

I thought you could do it by making world maps out of blank scrolls. Also, for ggs you need to make an attempt every day but ggs guarantees you a gain only if you don't get one by doing a lot of maps. I would make a few world maps each day, at 99.5 you might not get the .1 gain every day but you will at least every other day.

Once you reach 99.5 it is IMPOSSIBLE to gain from making world maps unless you use some sort of trick to lower your cart (satyr/guildmember discord).

I sure as heck won't flame you or blame you. I did it when you get also make a lot of money in the process by selling your world maps back to the npc for a nice profit.
