Skills are learned from teachers scattered throughout the realms. As you gain levels, you will receive skill points which are used to increase your rank in the skills of your choice. Each training session costs 1 skill point, in addition to a payment of gold which increases as your skill rank does. As you increase your rank in a skill, you are granted abilities and/or spells exclusive to that skill.
You are also able to teach other players in skills you have trained, up to half of your rank in that skill. If you have rank 20 in a skill, the highest you can teach another player is to rank 10. Use TEACH <Skill> to begin teaching and STUDY <Player> <Skill> to learn from another player.
