  • Reading skillbooks not registering skill points, only giving small qty of XP

    • Version: Alpha 21.2 (b16)






    Summary: reading skillbooks not working consistently

    So this whole new game, it occurs randomly that upon reading skillbooks, I wont get the skillpoints in that specialty, but intead just get XP.

    The current log and screenshot shows the moment after reading a skillbook from a mailbox, with no resulting skillpoints gained.

    This happens reading both from container, and from inventory, and with any skillbook. Last one read was brawler, and didnt provide points. The one before that was spears, and also didnt provide points.

    Are you trying to read a book or a magazine? Books come in volumes 1-7 and only gives bonus once, reading same volume again just gives you xp. Magazines on the other hand needs to be read multiple times to improve crafting skill. 

    When you said you read spears, is that "spear hunter" (the book) or "sharp sticks" (the magazine)? 

    There will also be an icon on the top right of the book/magazine. Open book icon means you've completed it already and will only get xp from reading it.
