Not currently implemented. We need to review this list of potions, as we are unfamiliar with them and notice they have a lot of weird ingredients that are map-specific.

Beer Brewing (Book Skill)

  • Beer brewing was never implemented on Grimmwold, but I'd love to see it eventually implemented. Here is the design document -- perhaps something similar is available on Serv UO.


Skills on Sanctuary use our Grimmwold methods for skill training, including passive gains, 2 min timer activation, no difficulty checks, more than 1300 skill points using a .spec setting, and so on. In addition, you can purchase limited training from NPCs as well as advanced " book skills" both of which are available on Master NPCs. Read More ..

  • Low skill levels can be trained by one of the Master NPCs.
  • The books for crafting book skills can be purchased at the Master NPCs.
