Description

Description

This command allows you to teach a command or skill to another player. In the case of commands the person doing the teaching needs to be experienced enough in the skill to teach it, and the person being taught also needs to be experienced enough to learn the skill.

In the case of skills the person doing the teaching needs to have an effective teaching bonus that is higher than the skill bonus of the person being taught.

The effective teaching bonus is the average of the bonus in the skill being taught and the relevant teaching skill up to a maximum of twice the bonus in the taught skill.

The cost in experience to the student is based on the relative difference between the teacher's effective teaching bonus and the bonus of the person being taught.

Once it has been determined that the teacher has sufficient teaching bonus to teach the student, the teacher's teaching skill, with a difficulty based on the student's bonus in the skill being taught, will be tested to see if the teacher should be rewarded or not.

If the person you are trying to learn from has 'auto teach' turned on then you can learn skills from them directly without them having to 'teach' you. Use the 'options' command to toggle 'auto teach' on and off.
