Knowing Thine Enemy

Knowing Thine Enemy is a new player quest found in New Haven and begins with Andreas Vesalius the Anatomy Instructor.


Increase Anatomy to 50


Head East out of town to Old Haven. Battle monsters there, or heal yourself and other players, until you have raised your Anatomy skill to 50


Hail and well met. You must be here to improve your knowledge of Anatomy. Well, you've come to the right place because I can teach you what you need to know. At least all you'll need to know for now. Haha!

Knowing about how living things work inside can be a very useful skill. Not only can you learn where to strike an opponent to hurt him the most, but you can use what you learn to heal wounds better as well. Just walking around town, you can even tell if someone is strong or weak or if they happen to be particularly dexterous or not.

If you're interested in learning more, I'd advise you to head out to Old Haven, just to the east, and jump into the fray. You'll learn best by engaging in combat while keeping you and your fellow adventurers healed, or you can even try sizing up your opponents.

While you're gone, I'll dig up something you may find useful.


By the Virtues, you've done it! Congratulations mate! You still have quite a ways to go if you want to perfect your knowledge of Anatomy, but I know you'll get there someday. Just keep at it.

In the meantime, here's a piece of armor that you might find useful. It's not fancy, but it'll serve you well if you choose to wear it.

Happy adventuring, and remember to keep your cranium separate from your clavicle!



Stay within Old Haven to take advantage of the accelerated skill gain buff which speeds up skill gain by about 0.2 - 0.5 per gain.
