What is this increased effectiveness? If the benefits are doubled, this skill is a hot candidate for the Maximise Absorption page. If the duration is doubled, that's something different altogether. So what is effectively doubled, does anyone know?--Gorgolok 11:52, 17 Aug 2005 (Central Daylight Time)

  • I am reasonably certain that it is the benefits that are doubled. --Snickles 12:17, 17 Aug 2005 (Central Daylight Time)
  • I've updated Tao in all the relevent places. Gorgolok, good catch on the Maximise Absorption, thanks. Nice work in the Casino too! --Gymnosophist 13:18, 17 Aug 2005 (Central Daylight Time)
  • Does this skill also benefit the rollover effects of things like the time trappings outfit? That would make it a must have permanent if so.--Raxon 23:56, 24 July 2007 (CDT)
    • Of course not, it would be far unbalancing. It doubles the power, not the enchantment effects on items.--Worthstream 02:55, 25 July 2007 (CDT)


What's a Terrapin? And do they mean Tao as in "The Way"? --Raijinili 14:29, 19 April 2006 (CDT)

  • If only there were some sort of book that told the meanings of different words. That would be awesome. Too bad you aren't connected to some sort of planet-spanning information network. That would make something like that super easy to find.--RyokoYahagi 14:48, 19 April 2006 (CDT)
  • I'm bringing up questions that should be answered on the page. I don't have confidence in my writing ability. --Raijinili 14:56, 19 April 2006 (CDT)
  • Except these are IMO not questions that need to be answered on the Article page. Anyone who can play KOL, can access any of several online dictionaries. People not getting the "Hey, Wayne" reference from Louvre it or Leave it, I perfectly understand. But, not knowing what a Terrapin is? Context is the first big hint: it's a Turtle Tamer skill, so Terrapin probably has osmething to do with turtles ... wouldn't you think? --Bork 09:57, 26 September 2006 (CDT)

Torso Awaregness Question

Once you get Torso Awaregness, does the Tao double the power of shirts or not?

  • Since the skill doesn't mention shirts, nor helmets ... I would presume not. --Bork 09:58, 26 September 2006 (CDT)

?helmets? it says hats, so what are you talking about? --Vhalantru 21:14, 5 March 2007 (CST)

Enchantment bonus

If a hat has +200 DA as an enchantment, does Tao double that as well? Or just the base DA? --Starwed 03:23, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
