Leeches do have quality, and it can change. When you have a leech equipped it will drain your blood 3 times before bloating, each time it drains your blood it's quality will change one point towards what ever your constitution score is.
As leeches increase in quality they do more SHP damage and heal more HHP, good leeches can be used in conjunction with the Theft skill to replace your knocked out enemies with leeches that will do (in my case) 20 damage each time they drain blood (say you put 4 of these leeches on them, this will do 4x20x3 or 240 damage), which can quickly dispatch your foe while leaving less severe criminal scents about.

This is particularly useful when farming. Begin by loading the barter stand with an ALT (not your main farmer, I prefer cooking alt, since I don't have to steal the ingredients out later). In the stock slot, insert random shit (like stones) and then select your desired purchase item as the crop you plan on harvesting (i.e. onion), set the quality to 1 and the number to whatever you want (I usually have 30, since I farm with an empty boosted inventory). With each full inventory, purchase the shit on your farmer, and then the 30 crop units will be stored in the stand. You can store an upwards of 8000 items in one HQ stand. (if you set the buying to 56 units and harvest with traveller's sacks).
The only downside to this is: You have to steal the crops out later when you want to cook with them. (oh and beets and pumpkins get annoying).

KeyKeep wrote:For bear hunting.
You need large shallow water (a lake is perfect).
Make a trap without totally closing it. Pull the bear (use punch on it from far to engage fight) in the trap.
When it's in, go into the water, wait for the bear to twitch, and close the trap quick.
Gather 26 IP (leadership skill "call down the thunder" is great but you can also use dash after every twitch).
Then after every twitch break the bear armor (lazy to find the move name but it looks like a door when you do it). Do this 4 times.
Then at the 5th twitch, knock its teeth out.
Bear should be fleeing now (look at top right circle, if it's green, it flees) if not, just repeat from gathering 26IP.
If your trap is ok, the bear won't be able to flee actually, so it'll just not move (neither attack).
You can go to melee without worrying.
Now, charge 16IP, use flex to max your attack, 2 times the door move, and knock teeth.
Repeat. Repeat, yell at the bitch stealing your boat, continue with the bear, it's dead, lift it fast because the same bitch who stolen your boat is just waiting for you to kill it to ninja it.

You can either try to gather 26 IP then use opportunity knocks 4 times and knock teeth out.
Or go for full advantage...
But there is faster to do.
Go hunt with a friend (even if he has no combat skill - I usually go hunt with my cook. And we bring the meat grinder). First, spar, use fan the flames or lot of moves to raise intensity to 10.
Get back to your boat (not leaving the spar mode), and go find an animal.
When you do, engage the animal, and ask your friend to use moves on you (a fast one like flex or jump is cool).
Each time he does a move, your maneuver is activated.
Here is how to kill a bear from shallow water (assuming it's trapped).
Wait for twitch, punch the bear, go back to water, raise your attack bar using flex on your friend and him moving on you with you on bloodlust maneuver, punch the bear, ...
Or in a fair fight with any creature, your friend keep using some move on you and you use it at your advantage. If the creature has no attack, go bloodlust, your attack meter will fill very fast.
If the creature is nearly full attack, go oakstance and you'll be given def very fast...

MagicManICT wrote:ArvinJA wrote:There are numerous subtle ways to fuck up in this game. If you manage to get your key alt killed within your palisade, and he stands close enough to your palisade, and you let him turn into a skeleton, his inventory and equipment will be dropped. There is a chance that the key will drop on a palisade tile making it impossible to pick up, which means you'd have to ram your gate as your key will no longer exist (it will despawn before your ram has dried). So the pro-tip here is: if you're keeping your key alt logged in, either armor him up so random noob griefers with slings can't kill him, or keep him some tiles away from your palisade, so that if he dies, the key will be safe for you to pick up. Also, remember, there's an inherent risk involved in keeping key alts, and using your gates, be aware of that.
Better solution: keep a second key alt around. Just like a computer back up, you keep copies stored in multiple locations just in case the shit really does hit the fan. Remember, kids, why make one when you can make two for twice the cost? (Sorry, bad rip-off from a movie... points to whoever can name the movie!--would give you something in game, but... not in-game right now.)
Another solution: No matter who you are, get a village totem up. It's not hard to do. Build a set of crossroads so that you never need to use your keys again.

Drinking wine gives a temporary +10 INT.
It's very useful to boost your attention by 10 points to study more curios.
Also, a wine glass contains 0.2l of wine. Though 0.1l is enough to activate the buff.
When you drink wine, one hourglass means you drank 0.1l.
So if you don't have much wine, a good tip consists in drinking only one hourglass (not the two - you can move quickly after drinking to stop before the second one is done). This way you'll use half the wine you would have used without knowing this tip.
Though if you drink half the wine, the buff will stay half the time (but it's enough time to put some curios on).
Alcohol also raises psy a bit. So drink some wine before crafting bear cape, or jewelry...
Here is a wiki quote :
If you drink Wine or Weißbier you will get the status effect "A Glass with a Friend" which increases Psyche by 5 and later after drinking more alcohol "A Glass to Keep the Cold Out" which increases it by 7. Smoking Tobacco also gives a temporary Psyche buff which is why it is recommended that you drink alchohol and smoke tobacco before you craft products that depend on Psyche.

When sorting pumpkins, slice the pumpkins, then scroll the seeds into a seed bag before putting the seed bag into one small container and the flesh in a bigger storage such as a large chest. Doing this allows you to sort pumpkins by seed bags. This can also be done with poppies and tea leaves but more for filtering the seeds in the bag and putting the byproduct in another container rather than sorting by seedbags.

jordancoles wrote:Basically, shield stance is a way for you to transfer your MC's offensive power into a form of defense. It effectively turns your melee skill into a UA defense by multiplying your MC by 1.25.
If you have 100 mc and are in shield stance it's the same as if you're being hit with 125 ua.
Another reason why MC is used is because of the offensive weights of the moves. Punch is .75 weight, sting is 1.00, and val strike is 1.75 iirc. This means that MC moves will lower your opponents defense bar better than a punch which is the preferred attack for UA users. The up side to MC fighters is that it is much quicker to become competitive in pvp because of how much rings and armor help to increase the stat. On top of this your skill is multiplied by 1.25. The downside to being an MC character is that people who are full UA (the majority of players) will have the advantage of being able to use maneuvers against you, and they will most likely be able to get full benefit from those maneuvers. Since most MC users have low UA and high MC, it means that someone with 2-3 times more UA them are able to get the most out of their maneuvers when using them against the MC character. An example being that Death Or Glory will give them more IP every time you use a move on them and etc. It's not exactly straight fact but maneuver delta depends on your UA vs the opponent's UA. I would say that in order to get full delta on someone you'd need to be about 3x's their UA. As a general rule for an MC character you'll want to have at least 300 UA because otherwise everyone will be able to rape you with their maneuvers, DoG, Bloodlust, Oak stance, all giving full potential to your opponent while you're stuck in shield stance. The reason why I say 300 ua is because 3x's that is 900 which isn't common unless they're in a larger faction. Another reason why it's good to have some UA is that if you're hit outside of shield stance, you'll be hit based on how much UA you have an not based on how much MC defense you have.
Lastly, you will need high strength, a high quality sword, and you will need to be full martial in order to do anything as an MC character. Typical armor class these days is around 1400-1600 so you will need to be able to sting for higher than that in order to do damage to your opponent. Without being full martial you can almost forget about it.
Now go forth onto the hearthlands with this new knowledge!
