Ok, i've been around Daoc for about a month and still havent found out what the entire truth is behind auto-training a skill. For example, how do you actually auto-train? do you continuosly use the skill. . .or does it come automaticly when you gain a lvl? Can you auto train after you have already put points into that skill? and what skills can get auto-training? I would like to autotrain stealth if i can respec at lvl 20 and take all of my stealth out and start auto-training from there. One last question, what level do you start to gain in autotraining?
Sorry if this post goes in circles, i just want to know as much as i can about it thank you
Auto-Training, for assasins only, happens for Stealth only. It keeps your stealth at a minimum of 1/4 level (so at level 8 you can never have 1 stealth, you'll always have 2 -- level 32 you'll have 8, etc)
You can not 'cheat the respec system' and get more RPs. There is a long explaination, but i don't wanna get into it. Just know you cannnot cheat the respec and get free points. They designed it to prevent that eventuality.
If you have 2 points of stealth that you bought, but now want to start auto training you can, just stop training in stealth and you will get the next autotrain at level 12. You may continue to use the skill all you want, it is just going to be crappy.
Autotraining is a way to get more use out of our limited spec points.
Actually every class Autotrains I think but only Assassins can actually attempt to and function.
See, every class has a key defining skill. The Singer classes (BArd, Minstrel, and Skald) will auto train Songs to 1/4 level but are so gimped that low it's un-playable.
I THINK each warrior class has a primary weapon Autotrain but again they are gimped beyond playable if they use it.
As I recall Pallys autotrain Chants but also have no legs and one arm if you try to...
Archer Classes Auto Train Bow to 1/4 of level but die to grays if you try this path...
Only Assassins actually can do their AT. By not Training stealth you can survive as a Lightweight Melee with 1/ AT stealth up into the 20's. This is primarily due to a lotta +Stealth Items in the game even at lower levels. The best plan I've used since the advent of Battlegrounds is to AT to L24 (but save all your L23 Train points unused). When you get the free skill 6 pump all your L23 and L24 Trains into Stealth (it ends up about 16 or 18 at L24) and hit BG 1 as a well trained Melee with good-nuff stealth to be a big bad-arse in a small playground.
Now its 20 free training points.
PS in the old days before BG we auto trained to L32-L40 cause there was no use RvR-in' an assassin before that. BGs changed all that. This used to be 54 free train points. Jammer Mon

I have a question that I am posting here as well as making a new post in the main hall because nothing seems to get answered:
I am an Axe spec SB, but want to respec axe to go the way of sword.(I have alot of good sword weapons, and 2h swords always seem to be better than any 2h axe counterpart).
Say I respec axe at 40, will it only go down to 12 points in the spec because of autotrain like stealth? Or will it be reset to 1... this is the question that I CANT seem to get answered in game or out, or on the camelot herald and so forth.
Also, in case you didn't know, if you use the char builder at catacombs you can enter the number of saved points into the 'bonus points' field and look at different specs. (ie if you autotrain stealth to level 32, just enter 35 into the bonus points field and you can play around with possible specs). Hope that helps some.
Sorry, i realized I should have been a little more specific when I said "by not training a single point in it until a desired character level". I meant if you don't train any points in stealth from the start you will have the number of free points that I posted above. As Cougar Pak said, you can also start autotraining after putting a few points into stealth, but the free points you'd get would obviously be different(less) then what I show above.
I wonder if warriors can spec one weapon line and get some free points at 40 if they switch to another line, since you get autotrained in all of Axe/Sword/Hammer no matter what.. my Hammer warrior could switch to Axe and get some free points..

*6 autotrained stealth + 20 pts= 8 stealth with 5 points left over. Stop training all skills at 22nd level or so, so you have some points to put into stealth when you do train it at 24.
*Yes, you can train other skills while autotraining stealth.
You will not autotrain anything until level 8 when the autotrained skill will increase. However, there are clases that do not autotrain anyting, at least not in the same way. Casters for instance, do not increase in any skill without training. They will, however, recieve level associated spells of the various skill types. I also do not think that friars autotrain, but I'm not completely cirtain about that. Sarire Dreamsinger
