Has anyone else heard about these?

There's rumours that if you cleanse a shrine, you can possibly get a skill gain scroll which increases the chance you get to gain a skill point for a set amount of time

How do you cleanse a shrine?


I prefer Clorox myself. Nice and clean without that pine smell...

When the pub goes live 3 shrines will become "infected" and have a bunch of red mobs infesting them.

From what I hear, youve got to kill all the red mobs in the area to cleanse the shrine. They dont respawn as you go but they can wander a good ways away from the shrine.

It seems taht the monsters are the ones taht spawn in the dungeon that opposes the shrine infected.

I think thats about it...

I call dibs on the fishing scrolls!

I'm glad they're adding stuff to make skill gaining a bit faster even if it's just temporary.

I think it was in TC, I don't think I've heard of anyone getting them in Origin or Pacific where the event is now active.

On test shard, I was able to get a carto scroll off a red hued acid el, and a stealing scroll from a red titan. They drop into your backpack and are a light bright purplish tinted scroll.

I'm hoping you'd still be able to gain it back. But that's still 3 days. And it's the highest stat right? Dex is always my highest.

Yeah, makes me wonder how much of a bump to skill gain you get with the scrolls. It'd better be worth it 'cause 3 days worth of gaining back those 10 stat points a day = 2.5 hours minimum.

A lot of skill points can be gained in that time without help.

Just looked around stratics. The scrolls are for 15 minutes only?

There better be a significantly better chance to get a gain in skill on every successful use. Like 50/50.

Ok, maybe not 50/50, but if it's not noticeable, it's not worth it.

*slaps self*

It's something new, and interesting. I guess the interest in it is good enough. It will help the hunter/merchants out there that just get stuff to sell 'cause it'd be worth buying, but not acquiring. Unless you got 30+ scrolls in skill you need to gain in.

If it's fast skill gain like the blackrock event, that's still a lot of skill points in 15 minutes.

Hehe if it can help me finish my fisher faster, it's great :)

Good point Ally. I guess I wouldn't mind the loss of the stat point so much if I was guaranteed good gains. The trick I guess would be knowing exactly what you must do so you don't waste any of those 15 minutes (like making plate gloves instead of circlets!)

Well we do have a lot of knowledgeable people here in regards to skill gaining. I'll make sure to check the skill gain tricks before I start using those scrolls.

Good points.

Then maybe it wouldn't take 30 scrolls to make up for the time to regain stats.

Thought about it more, and it'd be a better use to use an already maxxed out character skill wise to get the scrolls for others because some skill would suffer from stat loss (any melee, healing, etc.).

Crafters would be ok though :)

The stat loss sacrifice isn't until the end of the quest though, right? So we can collect the scrolls, if we get any. And then finish the quest when we're ready before it's over.

I need to read the spoilers... or maybe I shouldn't and just wait til the event goes live.
