there should soon be two more opportunities to obtain free 100% mastery books (apparently from justice updates), meaning that my mercedes main would have 3 skills maxed without me paying any money to anyone
is this goal of self-sufficiency possible? or will maple capitalism prevail? --- XxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxXxX Hi

So you're going to go out and hunt mystery mastery books until you get the ones you need?

The odds of getting a single mystery mastery book are already fairly low, to the point where it might take thousands of kills just to get one.
The odds of getting any particular skill are... 1/221 if my research is right. Might be off, not sure. Guaranteed chance of lower than 1/200.
And then you have to factor in the chance of failing the book.
tl;dr: the odds are so incredibly against you that I'm going to flat-out say you wont succeed in maxing every good skill. --- http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc157/peekatchu/Other/phainopepla.jpg

I'd bet that you could level from 1-200, opening every mystery mastery book you find on the way, and not only probably not get the ones you need, but probably not even get a single one for your class. --- Is it elitist to crave efficiency?

Only pirates and thieves will be getting the free 100% mastery books from justice. --- Thank you BasedGod!

Why wasn't this book system abolished in v0.56? It's terrible. --- How to post while still counting as lurking (and thus not posting): All you have to do is be me.

Good idea but anything worth training on does not drop Skill books.
