How to earn this Skillquest - (last updated and solved: November 2020)

The rubik's cube is a world drop item and is not 'bind on pick-up'. Solve it once, to earn the skillquest; solve it twice to earn 'Medal of Rubik's Mastery'. Pass it to a friend once you're done.

Rubik's Cube(tm)

This is none other than the Rubik's Cube(tm). It seems to work by turning the cube or its faces. The left, right, top, bottom, back and front faces all seem to be turnable. This game seems to begin when you scramble the cube. You can view the movements through the 'cubelist' command.
It looks light.

  Rubik's Cube(tm) Move List:

  turn cube <left|right|up|down>
  turn <left|right> <up|down>
  turn <top|bottom|front> <left|right>
  view cube <left|right|top|bottom|back|front>
  scramble cube (To start it.)
  check cube (Have you solved it?)

Here's a glimpse as to what it looks like when you're looking at a side:

4. Almoni Ploni

You must solve a puzzle deep in an ancient tomb.


How to earn this Skillquest - (last updated and solved: April 2021)

Step 1: From Fantasy, travel to Taslen - <portal, 15e, leave, 17e, 4n, 3e, board ship> (if the ship is not there, wait a moment for it to arrive and then <board ship>). . . wait for it to dock at Taslen <gangplank>

Step 2: Now that you've arrived at Taslen - <6e, 11n, 5e, 2n, search sand, lift slab, d>

Step 3: Locate the book of the dead - <2d, search slabs, get book>

Step 4: Translate the glyphs around this area now that you have the book so that you can understand the history of Almoni Ploni - <read book, read glyph>

Step 5: <u, read glyph, look at murals>

Step 6: <u, read glyph, look at murals>

Step 7: <2d, ne, search wall, read glyph, look at slot, look at murals>

Step 8: <se, read glyph, look at murals>

Step 9: <sw, read glyph, look at murals>

Step 10: Break the pots to get the coins - <nw, break pot 1, break pot 2, break pot 3>

Step 11: <ne, put coin on scale, pull lever>

You pull the lever to release the scales. The pan lifts from the pedestal on which it rests. The dial spins and begins to reciprocate, but eventually stops on 10.


Step 12: You'll notice that in step 11, the dial landed on 10. As per the glyphs, a legitimate coin weighs "10" pebbles. Therefore, you need to continue adding a coin until the number is not divisible by 10 (see example below). - <put coin on scale, push lever, pull lever>

You push the lever. The scales' pan lowers to the pedastal. The dial spins back to 0.
You pull the lever to release the scales. The pan lifts from the pedestal on which it rests. The dial spins and begins to reciprocate, but eventually stops on 881.


Step 13: Get the counterfeit coin - <get coin from scale, insert coin in slot>

You put the coin into the slot...
The silence is flushed with a loud voice: "Locrian has proven herself wise beyond her years."


DONE!

Daemon Graft

Daemon Graft is a power that a necromancer can give to another, but not themselves. In its original form it can only be used once per necro repower. In this state it is also much less effective. Once it has been trained to the max omega level (25) it becomes much more useful. At this point it no longer has a limit of use per reset. The duration is increased significantly, as well as the effects, which include both healing and shifting of alignment towards evil with each heal bestowed by the demon. (The player must accept the offer in order to receive it.)

14. Help Files

Read, carefully, the help files on skills.

How to earn this Skillquest - (last updated and solved: January 2021)



ANSWER: <tell cancer I understand skills, cancer>

How is it solved? Letters are underlined in the help files for skills and advance. Put all of the letters together and it spells "I understand skills, cancer"


:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Mudwide Skill System
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


Skills on 3Kingdoms add a unique dynamic to your character. Choosing to advance yourself in one or more skills will have a positively profound and somewhat permanent impact on your character. The different skills available for advancement provide you with a myriad of special abilities and tangible effects, the combination of which will be unique to your character.

To see the available skills use the 'skills' or 'mskills' commands.

You get one skill point every even level, and one skill point for every year you've been on 3K. You also get 1 skill point for the first quest you complete. There are also skill specific quests you can get points for.

To advance skills use the 'advance' or 'adv' commands.
It is recommended you read the help file on 'advance' as well.
example: advance health.regeneration
example: advance combat.armor.light.medium

You can see a brief description on most skills in one of two ways:
First, try 'help <skill name/skill pre-req>' such as:
- help weapons
- help armor
- help metabolism
- etc.
You can always get information by using the full skill path as well:
- help health.metabolism
- help combat.armor.light
- help combat.weapons.axe.two-handed.elemental
- etc.
There are many skill QUESTS throughout the mud that will grant you additional skill points to spend. These quests follow the same quest rules as normal quests (read 'help quests') and you will be severely punished for sharing qinfo about them.

However, unlike regular quests, the 'skillquests' list is not a complete list of all available skill quests. It is mostly complete, but there are several where even applying a name would give too much information. Some skillquests are merely rewards for paying attention or doing good deeds, so keep an eye out.

Again, in all cases, skill quests are qinfo and any discussion about them will result in punishments involving loss of skill points, loss of levels or stats, quest points, or any number of other severely painful actions.

On the other hand, Skill trainers are to be considered public knowledge. The locations and abilities of these trainers can be shared, however, you should consider your audience when discussing them as many people enjoy the seeking aspect of finding skill trainers. If you feel the need to share the locations then it's advised that you use tells.

You may reset all your spent skill points in order to reallocate them as you wish by issuing the command:

advance skill reset


The cost of performing such a reset begins at 1000 coins for the first time, and increases by orders of magnitude for every subsequent reset.

The following ansi variables apply to skills:
skill_dodge, skill_crit, shield_block, skill_freecast

See also: advance, armor, attack, dodge, metabolism, regeneration, weapons.
