There should be a massive skill overhaul, alot of wasted database space on useless skills. Make em useful. For example,

Forensics - +1 or 2 % per 10 skill points to harvested resources from monsters (this includes scales!). Stackable with human gatherer trait

Taste ID - +2% (ish) to enhance potions per 10 skill points. This sorta goes in line with other threads. make em use skill slots to get enhancement to potion str. OR +2% per 10 skill points for success chance and exceptional chance in alchemy and cooking.

Begging- This one brought up an interesting thought. How about a bonus of some kind for having a full set of complementary skills? Begging, stealing, hiding, stealth are all thief sets.

    "Can Set Custom Title"

An interesting idea I once heard in regards to begging was:

3 options on attempted begging:

1. NPC says nothing..skill too low
2. NPC gives you something whether it be food or gold whatever..success!
3. NPC says go away....green light to steal from them without getting whacked when unsuccessful.

This of course goes hand and hand with stealing of which you would have to have required lvl of stealing to be successful!



    How do you tell when you run out of invisible ink?

i thinkthe option of all the skills weather good nor bad is what makes uo . if only 10 peole use taste id and begging it was worth it not everything should be combat based but reaqlity based

If we try to look at all the "useless" skills in one thread we would find that confusing. Instead lets have a thread for each one you want to discuss. Want to ask the first post of each thread to contain the skill they want to discuss, why they think it needs fixing and what the OP would do to fix it.

Want to thank each of you for your ideas and input!!

Going to lock this thread so that we can concentrate on the single defunct skill threads :) .
