Cicada's Training/Skillgain Guide
In general, you want to use the song or riddle that has the right difficulty for your skill level.
To find the recommended skill, multiply the "Tier" of difficulty by 10 (ex: Riddle of Indulgence is a Tier 1 Riddle, giving it a recommended skill of 10.0 to attempt).
You will normally be casting riddles or songs that are slightly beneath your current skill, as unlike with Manifestation and Evocation, a failed song or riddle will use mana. In general, Successful skill checks appear to yield more skillgain.
- To start, buy Entertainment to 30.0 from a Bard for 300 .
- For single-target riddles (Riddle of Indulgence, Riddle of Stupidity, Riddle of Virility), find non-hostile targets (Chickens, Horses, Hinds, Turkeys, Brown Bears, etc.) and use the riddle on them. Allow the riddle to play out — you will continue to get skill checks while the riddle is active on the target.
- At about 60.0 skill, you can begin spamming Riddle of Force for gains through 90.0 — Riddle of Force has a 1 second cooldown, allowing it to be spammed for more skill check(s).
- At about 80.0 skill, you can begin spamming Riddle of Docility for gains all the way through 100.0 (GM) — Riddle of Docility has a 1 second cooldown, allowing it to be spammed for more skill check(s).
- Switch between songs and riddles while grinding/adventuring for variety.
|Song/Riddle||Skill Gain Range|
|Riddle of Indulgence||0.0 - 40.0|
|Song of Thew||20.0 - 50.0|
|Riddle of Stupidity||30.0 - 60.0|
|Riddle of Virility||40.0 - 70.0|
|Song of Earth||50.0 - 80.0|
|Riddle of Force||60.0 - 90.0|
|Song of Water||70.0 - 100.0|
|Riddle of Havoc||70.0 - 100.0|
|Riddle of Docility||80.0 - 100.0|
- You can still attempt to cast higher-tier songs and riddles at any level, but it will not yield skill gains unless you are within range of successfully casting it.
- When you can play Song of Water reliably, use it to regenerate mana — Song of Water is just as good as the mage Meditation ability.
- For super fast regeneration, If you have Meditation, play Song of Water first, before meditating. Song of Water will temporarily stack with Meditation for insanely fast mana regeneration for a short while.
- At roughly 30.0 skill points above a given Song/Riddle's difficulty, you will have a 100% chance of success, and skillgains will stop, so switch it up often.
