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?

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

okay whatever have fun

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.

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.
