How to level up on skills
- The tool for that trade (you can see my sieve above) but you can only use a tool up to 15 points higher than your actual skill. (actual being the number 7 on my screen shot)
- Jewelry – different jewelry offers different skill bonuses. I’m wearing a deep stone bracelet which is giving me an extra 4.3 skill to my prospection in the picture above.
- Camp – that means a location bonus. So if I was in my home and I had mine set up, it would offer me a bonus. Some NPC places have bonuses too, so make sure to check that when you are looking to level.
- Companions. Different companion have different skill sets, for example I should have a labourer with me here to up my prospection skill. The labourer would level up with me as I worked and add to my effective skill.
