[ Return to Game Mechanics ]

Pool Skill is a mechanic that improves your ability to play pool (duh), either in The Haunted Billiards Room, in the Typical Tavern or in your clan's VIP lounge. It can be viewed (if non-zero) in the Other Accomplishments section of Your Quest Log, or through the Quest Tracker, but only after encountering Welcome To Our ool Table and before defeating the ghost in afore-mentioned adventure.

History

  • Shortly after the Spookyraven Manor revamp on 14th May 2014, the effect of your drunkenness on pool skill was shown in the Quest Tracker when trying to get the Spookyraven library key. This was then made hidden sometime the next day.
  • On May 30, 2014, Pool Skill was added to the Quest Log.
