Abilities and spells that boost Perception
- Clear Vision spell
- Eye of Kertigen enchante
- Revelation spell
- Khri Sight
- Barbarian Owl Form
- Glyph of Light
Perception skill is reduced at nighttime unless using a dark-vision ability, such as Khri Sight. This change occurred Summer of 2007.
Thanks to the foraging experience changes, foraging is currently faster than juggling in terms of training perception. Foraging vines, for instance, moves the perception skill by one mindstate every 7 forages without using careful or precise at 20 INT, 10 DIS, and 81 perception.
Juggling and weights
In general, you should juggle something that weighs 1/10 of your Perception ranks, rounded down to the nearest 5. For example, if you had 150 ranks in Perception, you would want to juggle something that weighed 15 stones. If you had 154 ranks in Perception, 15 stones would still be your ideal juggling weight.
Note that if you immediately drop the objects you're juggling, you will not gain any Perception experience. This means that you are trying to juggle something that is too heavy.
Per GM Ssra the juggling code is set up to only support teaching perception with jugglings weights of 70 stones or less.
