What I cannot understand is why are the skills and trades in a cave where you run a gauntlet of creatures.
It does not follow the theme of the game to me.
so, what you're saying is if I need a skill ,i need to be shepherded each time i go.
if it's true, as a mage you have to thru a door. you need ingredients for it WHY?
What is the point of getting jelly and oxinite ,if you can not get thru.
