Obtaining trade skills
Additional trade skills
To encourage a thriving economy and community, additional trade skills carry an extra cost to learn. If you'd like to become more self-sufficient, you may purchase more trade skill permits for fifty credits each, allowing you to learn an extra trade skill. Each of these skills also carries a compounding lesson cost to learn. So your third trade skill (first additional skill) will cost fifty percent more lessons to reach transcendent. Your fourth (second additional) will cost fifty percent more again.
To purchase an additional trade skill permit, simply visit Amarisse in Delos and BUY TRADESKILL PERMIT.
There is no pressure to learn additional skills though, there will definitely be another adventurer around who will be able to assist you!
Forgetting trade skills
Should you wish to change trade skills in the future, you can FORGET <trade skill> and you'll be refunded 50% of your invested lessons in that skill.
