Re: New sidekick skills

Any chance on a hint yet, or is it still the dreaded "too soon". Actually, one got figured out already and it's the hint for the other. And that one is a hint to something else. It's basically hints all the way down :) If you want a hint for the first one, it's that your understudy is learning new ...

However, I do not like the way image-light combat looks.
Would it be possible to separate that into two different options?
Split those up.

"Normal expectations" is "use an item" or "visit firebird college", so that could mean anything.

It's something that's outside normal expectations for how your understudy learns things. So it might take a while to figure out.

That said, someone already found one. So it's apparently not too bad :mrgreen:

I log onto that site, vote, then use the site to log onto TH. Only takes a few seconds longer than logging directly onto TH. The site resets every week, so with some votes, some publicity.

I've still been thinking about this. As we approach having enough data to make things meaningful, how would "average price sold" and "average minimum price not met" data do for you?
