    What do you mean they are no one's rightful claim? Richter did not kill them, they were part of the other party but more importantly they most likely have families. Seems pretty clear who has the stronger claim.

    The orcs owe Richter their lives, not someone elses property :)

    Looting the dead, that was not your kill, could be against their morals or code. The one who kills the being should only have the right to do with the body what they want. For the worms/wurms that killed the orcs, they can loot or eat the body. For the orcs that killed worms/wurms, they can loot those bodies or eat them. But one should not mess with a kill that was not your own, it's grave robbing.

    Edit. Though if there is family. I suppose the stuff could be returned, or the body as a whole.:D

    So what changes happens to Richtær's game play if we consider him a hunter? A ranged fighter with an animal companion for the Melee damage.

    I've been wondering what Skills Richter would need in order to gain/become a Blue Magic type User (as in be able to Learn, or Absorb or temporary Access (ect) Magical Abilities, Traits &\or Skills of Beasts. Assuming that it's not a Skill rather then a Profession/Specialization?
    The fact that Richter has now gained the Talent that allows him to gain aspects of creatures from their Soul Stones when Enchanting strongly suggests that a Blue/Animal type Magic Class/Skill should be possible.

    I'm also wonding if something like Naturally Occurring Soul Stones might exist, Soul Gems?

    We would probably see him use Magic and Ranged Weapons a lot more, possibly see him make some Traps if he had the needed materials for him, and so increase in Ranged Weapon and Magic Skills, also in Taming and related Animal/Pet Skills and Tracking and Hunting Skills.

    how many spells does he have?
    tame
    Blood harvest
    blood-puppet

    Also he can always snort 2x bloodcrystal.. tame a lvl 100 best.. like a beaten or stuck under a stone wind deamon
    And after get MindWiped by Alma.
    +20lvl's in blood magic.. this is broken.

    I put blood because of the known cheat for powerleveling, with one measure, maybe two now that hes tier 2, he could tame a truly powerful reptile and have it rampage either through the dungeon or his lands until it dies. Giving a massive skill boost.

    I didnt read theough all the posts so this may have been discussed, but he should be able to hit journeyman in light armor really quickly by cheating with his bloodline. He can have randy "train" him with the help of yoshi by hitting him with as much damage as his armor can handle until his blood line runs out. Do that every morning in the barracks and he will fly through the levels.

    And i know this was already mentioned but he could always pull a random journeyman level skill book from a high stratum of the soc

    He purchases a Journeyman Skill book from the Sea of Chaos guaranteed to be a random combat skill and it ends up being for Crossbows. He can't use it with either of his expertise, It takes a god aweful long time to reload, and it ends up not working with his Enhanced Imbued Arrow subskill. But at least he qualifies for a combat profession!

    Although...

    Now that I think about it...

    With his crafting skills and new Monocle, he could probably create a rapid reload forearm crossbow kinda like the one that bitch Sonirae had. Load it with a selection of dual enchanted bolts. He could probably devise a way to create a spacial-folding crossbow bolt magazine, that would allow him to mentally select the next bolt. Throw in a professional talent that allows for faster or even instant reload, and he would have a really sick auxiliary weapon.

    And now I really want this to happen.

    Edit: I just realized I've basically given Richter one of the slingers from MHW.

    Here is another question though. If Richter reaches journeyman level in a ranged skill like bows or crossbows, can he choose between professing as a warrior or ranger? Likewise, if he reaches journeyman in maces or small blades, could he profess as a ranger? We saw a number of bow wielding warrior bodaks in book 7, and d&d includes both ranged fighters and melee rangers.

    Maybe? I think it would be quite the lark when he goes for a combat proffession but since he's all combat types he has to profess as some proffession no one has heard of in forever, and so he doesn't know what to say he is

    Maybe if he does so after the librarian arrives to torture Roswan, Nexus will be in such a good mood that he might go easy on Richter.

    It was a travesty that Richtær didn't ask Nexus how one gets two professions in book 8.
