FYI from the Camelot Herald grab bag...

"Q. I was in Camelot crafting with someone new to game and he had been working on Alchemy. He commented he was gaining in basic crafting and he could not go much further - so I directed him to speak to the Alchemist master to be accepted to the trade and that his skill points should transfer and menu open up.

He was then confused, as it did not transfer his skill, it instead showed 1 in alchemy, 189 in basic crafting, and 564 in herbcraft. So I searched the Herald and found patch notes for 1.76 stating that the trades should in fact transfer - except Alchemy & Spellcrafting as they were not part of basic crafting. I then found other notes from when Alchemy and Spellcrafting were added to basic crafting. Should these skills transfer?

A. Basic crafting will skill up along with secondary skills. If a player joins an advanced skill, the secondary skills remain the same (don't reset) and are used by the advanced classes as well. There is no transfer of skill points from, say, basic crafting to weaponcrafting (advanced craft). Nowhere in the patch notes referenced does it say it transfers to the advanced craft.

From 1.76:

- Players may choose another crafting order to have the Basic Crafting order replaced. When doing so, any skills shared between Basic Crafting and the new order will be transferred. Since Spellcrafting and Alchemy do not share any skills with Basic Crafting, in cases where the player chooses Spellcrafting or Alchemy as an advanced craft order, all of the Basic Crafting skills and sub-skills will be removed.

The shared skills referenced would be secondary skills which basically stay the same.

Q. I have been trying to farm lich teeth at the calleach guards in Lyonesse. I have killed close to 100 of them and gotten no drops of teeth. Did they discontinue this drop from the guards? They were never a frequent drop, but I don't remember them being this rare.

A. No, the drops weren?t discontinued. They still have a chance to drop the 'ancient lich tooth'."
