    (FWIW, "live shortly after release" applies to the new Consumable skills. Unless they decided to make the NPC who unlocks the skills a secret, because it isn't the Tactics or Focus trainers. Spent my whole lunch break trying to unlock them. #CatnipOwesMeLunch)

    Also, my two cents on "opposing" skills: Why not make them so that one debuffs the other, instead of one setting the other to untrain? If you wanted to stick with one, you'd get the full benefit; if you wanted both, you could have them, but they'd be a bit weaker. So instead of locking us into one or the other (and let's be real here, almost nobody is going to take the duration skill unless maybe it can make a ten minute potion last an hour or so, which is unlikely, as then you'd get 12 and 48 hour foods, and 6 week obisidian potions*) we'd be able to tailor the skills to our needs.

    * Presuming these skills apply to foods and obsidian potions, it's not entirely clear if they do. Food seems possible, obsidian potions probably not.

    Anyone knows when this will be fixed and the skills are available to learn (presumably from the Mastertrainers)?

    The Signpost Teleporters are a great addition, it's very helpful being able to rename them and dye them too. Provides easier access to events in player towns and gives the game a more personal feel by allowing you to customize things even more.
