Have Low Melee/Casting Skills?Follow

A good friend of mine, Jaida Winterdaze, told me of a great way to increase melee/casting skills, (I haven't used this for casting, because there are, for the most part buffs you can just cast on yourself to raise your skill..), and that is, going to an Arena with your merc, then attacking your merc with whatever spells, weapons, or skills that you need to increase, and it will ACTUALLY go up!

As a paladin, I had trouble increasing my throwing skill, because there really aren't any weapons that I can use to increase it... that is, until after some research, I came across http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=4260 or Bracer of Hammerfal, a wrist that summons a stack of 100 hammers a pally can use.. Thanks to these, my skill is now maxed, along with my archery (unrelated to the bracer...lol)


Just thought I'd pass this on to you folks who kept looking at a melee/casting skill that just wanted to get it up without having to sit there and keep wasting your time beating on mobs and possibly dying...

This is a game for a mature player, you want easy, want to curse a lot, want to grief, cheat, pretty much ruin the game? Go play World of Warcraft, cause we don't want you.

Also, for anyone over lvl 75 the Katta group mission " The Great Invasion" has 4 perma rooted "Shissar Priests" that do not summon and can be used to raise throwing or archery skills.

Once you kill/clear all the other Shissars in the rooms you can sit back and throw to your hearts desire. They also regenerate if you drop aggro, ie FD classes, which is convenient for this purpose.

I always went fishing to raise casting spells. You can even fish in your guild zone at the manna pool.

Cast line, then cast several spells. It works. Not so well, if you're drinking too though. Smiley: grin

Yes, you cast the line, cast a spell or two, reel in your catch and begin again. I even have a hot key for this.
