    Not a confusing title at all...

    Currently if Anne goes to an NPC and buys a Teachable recipe she can learn it from that scroll, then teach it to Bob, Carrol, Damian, all her assorted alphabetical buddies. But because these people haven't learned it from a scroll, and it is only Teachable, not Re-Teachable, they cannot pass it on. It gets forever locked into a Not-Teachable state for them

    It's a really cool system, but it would also be nice if there was a way to re-learn a recipe taught to you by another, to convert it to a Teachable form. So if Anne teaches Bob he can use the recipe all he'd like, but if he wants to teach someone else he's able to go re-learn it from the NPC scroll and then teach others.

    Greetings Coswald_Dirthmire
    Since you do not get EXP for learning a recipe only for crafting the item I do not see any reason why it could not be upgraded for the price of the Scroll. Great Idea.

    Perhaps this could be tied to use of the recipe. Make 100 of something and the recipe auto-upgrades.

    If you did something like that for the current drop only recipes, you'd have to make 200 of something to fully unlock it. 100 for teachable and another 100 for re-teachable.

    this might be difficult tech-wise depending on how it's currently set up, but IF it's hard to convert the state, an unlearn option would serve the same purpose.

    Ah, that would be two birds with one stone really, since I've heard people request that feature as well. Honestly I wouldn't mind it myself, with the number of times I've absentmindedly wasted high grade timbers on making boards...
