Walkthrough

Before you begin

  • Before you start redistributing skills and/or attributes, be sure to purchase a few Herbs from your local archmage, you must have some to enter either of the two Temples.
    • Tip: Pick one type of herb and buy a few of them. Its best to buy a few, in case you accidentally hand the wrong component at the wrong time. You can keep clicking the Temple Guardian until it requests the herb that you picked.
Guardian of the Temple of Forgetfulness tells you, "Bring me the essence of Malar and I will let you pass."

  4. These gems work identically to the gems from the temples. (raising or lowering by 10)

Important Notes

Timers

  • Though the Token of Modification for untraining and redistributing attributes share the same name, they do not share timers. This means you can actually get 4 untraining gems, and still get the full 18 attribute gems if you have never done this before.
  • Timers listed above don't apply when using the reset options at Asheron's Castle.

Tinkering Skills

  • Tinkering skills can only specialized using Augmentation Gems and they cannot be unspecialized using Gems of Forgetfulness.

Fixed Skills and Attributes

  • Even though you cannot untrain fixed starter skills such as Arcane Lore, you can use the Gems of Forgetfulness to recover all experience that you have spent on them.
Although you cannot untrain your Arcane Lore skill, you have succeeded in recovering all the experience you had invested in it.
  • You can never raise an attribute above 100 innate, or lower it below 10 innate using the Gems of Alteration.
Your innate level of [Attribute] is already as low as it can be. You may not reduce it any further.

Mistakes

  • If you choose the wrong gem and want to get another instead, you can give the gem to either the Servant of Alteration or Servant of Forgetfulness to erase the mistake. This does not apply to Gems of Enlightenment (specializing) as there is no timer or limit to the gems.

Servant of Forgetfulness

Servant of Forgetfulness tells you, "I awaken. I exist to serve those who wish to ease their memories."

Servant of Forgetfulness tells you, "In order to ensure that the magics of this temple are not overused, the Wardens of Forgetfulness have awoken. They will determine if you are allowed access to their gems. Take this token and give it to the warden of your choice, who will then give you a gem if you meet their requirements."

Servant of Forgetfulness tells you, "You may receive with no delay up to four gems that allow one to forget a skill previously known. Receipt of your fifth through eighth gem will require a wait of a week per gem. Receipt of your ninth through sixteenth gem will require a wait of two weeks per gem. Finally, gems beyond your sixteenth will require a wait of three weeks per gem."

Servant of Alteration

Servant of Alteration tells you, "I...think this is working. If so, you should be able to hear my voice."

Servant of Alteration tells you, "The temples have been changing. The gems are no longer available to all, and statues - wardens - have appeared out of nowhere. However, it seems that the work I did previously allows me some level of control over them. It is quite facinating, in fact. If this works right, this statue will give you the same token as the other servants have begun to hand out. You'll need to give the token to the new wardens to receive their gem."

Servant of Alteration tells you, "The magic which allows Isparians to alter themselves seems stable, but there's some evidence of instability in repeated uses. Therefore, I'm implementing a limit. You can take the first nine red attribute gems and nine green attribute gems with no delay. You will need to wait a week per red gem neyond nine, and likewise you will need to wait a week per green gem beyond nine. You'll need to wait two weeks per red gem beyond eighteen, and two weeks per green gem beyond eighteen."

Servant of Alteration tells you, "If you make a mistake and get the wrong gem, you can give the gem to this servant and you will be able to pick up another, but be warned...once you have picked up a new gem, you must wait the full duration before picking up another. Also, if you have combined two gems, they can no longer be returned."

Returning Attribute Gems to the Servant of Alteration

You give Servant of Alteration Gem of Raising Strength.

Servant of Alteration tells you, "Your mistake has been erased and you are now free to get another gem. However, once you pick up a gem you will need to wait the full normal duration until you are permitted to get another."
