We read an SB but our skill is still level 2.
SBs can fail. They only have a 30-50% success chance. You can use "Tome" instead of SB, it gives a higher success chance. Also, you need more than 1 SB to reach the next skill level in Metin2, as shown below :
Level 1: 1 SB.
Level 2: 2 SBs.
Level 3: 3SBs.
Level 4: 4SBs.
Level 5: 5Sbs.
Level 6: 6SBs.
Level 7: 7SBs.
Level 8: 8SBs.
Level 9: 9Sbs.
Level 10 to G1: 10SBs.
NOTE: You need to wait 24 hours between a SB and another. You can use item(Metin2 yang) mall to read a SB before 24hours, and to get almost 100% succes rate [it may still fail, but MUCH less].
NOTE2: You can not make a skill G at level 7, even if the descriptions says it's possible.
Our skill is G. What do we do now ?
Now your skill is G [Grand Master], you need Soul Stones. Each sells for 80-100k+, and they may fail too. As SBs, you need more Soul Stones as your skill level up. Each Soul Stone takes some of your HKP [Hostile Killer Points] off. After G10, there's P [perfect] skills.
How do we obtain SBs ?
SBs drop from metins, mostly. They may also drop from the Demon King. [and other demons in DT, not sure which] The SB dropped is random, although the lower level you are, and the higher level the metin is, you may obtain more SBs. [3 SBs from 4 metins, instead of 1/4. Well, we sincerely hope this could be informative. If you have any question else, just post here. Do not forget to buy Metin2 gold for your characters. Just have a try.
