WHAT!!! Are you realy serious? Where eles am I going to find a one stop location of all the spells I need to find. I know, even over time, that my brain can't handle the retention of spells in every single place there is, and who's got them, in the game.

Is there a reason Dakk was left off of this list?--Erom 19:10, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

He teaches all skills (Core + Prophecies), so his list would be very long and not very informative. - anja talk 20:31, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
I can see that. But perhaps, in lieu of a complete list, a mention that he exists? Seems strange to direct people all over the continent if they're at or near the end of the campaign and can get what they need at the "one stop shop". Thoughts? --Erom 20:49, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
Better? ;) poke | talk 20:56, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
Yup. Seems more... complete? this way.--Erom 21:43, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Hmm

"Firstwatch Sergio in Lion's ArchDroknar's Forge". New city? Earthquake smooshing the two places together? Obviously Firstwatch Sergio is in Lion's Arch, but I go to edit the page to correct it, and I think the error is in the included dpl file. Maybe. I have no idea how to access that file to correct it, though.

Also, a semi-related question (the reason I came to this page in the first place). Some of the trainers listed have Signets of Capture in their skills provided. Trainers that I know offer signets (Bartok in Droknar's Forge, for instance) does not. Sorim in Quarrel Falls has a signet listed for each profession -- which seems like an awkward arrangement to me. Wouldn't it be easier to just list the signet next to their name, rather than include it in every profession when it isn't really a profession-specific skill? I'm thinking of something like:

Sorim in Quarrel Falls (offers Signet of Capture Signet of Capture)

Or is this all pulled in from the individual trainer lists? Whatever it is, the wiki voodoo eludes me.

Yes, everything here is gained from the Skill trainer list template used on each NPC page. It is simply so that we don't have 200+ parameters in the template for each skill, so basically it is just copied.
I fixed Firstwatch Sergio by simply using the location parameter of the template, which exists exactly for that problem. The list tries to get the location from the locations given on the NPC page; when there is more than one location given that doesn't work and all locations are connected to one word, so you just enter the location in which the NPC acts as a skill trainer to the template and everything is fine.
I agree that the Signet of Capture looks a bit stupid in every cell, maybe it would be better to include a note, that the trainer does not offer Signets of Capture, instead. poke | talk 11:08, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the explanation on how the templates work. It almost makes sense now. I still think there's some inscrutable wiki voodoo going on, but that's probably just unfamiliarity with how this all ties together.
I was originally thinking that skill trainers offering a signet of capture should be listed, but now that I think about it a bit more, the number of skill trainers that don't offer a signet is going to be less than the number of those who do.
I also wonder whether Magi Malaquire should be listed as a skill trainer or not. He does offer a few skills, including the signet of capture (once the quest is complete) but that may just be too confusing. --Nkuvu User Nkuvu sig button.jpg 00:36, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Yakk's Bend

Captain Osric in Yak's Bend, does not have Mark of Rodgort** (Ele skill), I checked this list out, and was a lil excited to see that 'i could' pick it up in Yakk's bend, I cannot from this skill trainer :( Please update, and thanks for this list, its super helpful!--- Frat talk 01:48, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
Unfortunately, people don't realize that if they already have skills unlocked on their accounts, they can get them from trainers earlier than if they don't, so they are continuously changing the lists. --Wyn's Talk page Wyn 02:16, 23 May 2009 (UTC)
O well that's lame :P its all good, I was 1 port away from Ember Light camp so I just unlocked it there ^.^ --- Frat talk 10:08, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Alphabetical order vs. Sequence of reaching them?

I was wondering why they're listed in alphabetical order, when it would be much more helpful to have them listed in order of how you'd reach them if you were playing a Prophecies character through the story? Or, perhaps, I just don't know where to find a list of them in sequential order. Raethiusliore 08:15, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
