Does anyone know at what points the stones can explode? I've had one explode on me at the "convince it has x stages" point, but beyond that I've got nothing. --Ilde 21:50, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

I think exploding is when you critically fail a convince skillcheck. As the only skillcheck of significance is the number of stages one, that's probably the only one where you're going to see explosions - the other convincing skillchecks for filling out the details of the stages are pretty puny, so unlikely to have a critical fail. Aside from exploding, crumbling is a far more prevalent issue; that only happens at the educe stage. --Chat 22:25, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
I've had them explode while convincing them to forget, now, too. :( Not really ideal for idling purposes (I got it up to 100 levels, too, just so it wouldn't happen again! And then it still did! Bah). I'll add a little note, then. ETA: Oh, I see, so it's convoking, not talisman that it uses... wish I'd checked first. --Ilde 08:24, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't think you need two witches to educe a trick for it to be sold by Hilta, just doing it a lot so it appears in Goodie Whemper's Definitive List of Well Known Tricks is probably enough. --Frazyl 22:08, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Length of each stage

(Witches) Hannazus wisps: For those wishing to be in the know, apparently each stage can be 250 characters long.

Perhaps we can add this info somewhere in the wiki?

Bonuses required for more stages

Janeka wisped: convoking 211/259 talisman 212/260 isn't enough for 4 stages in a
    trick, but convoking 211/259 talisman 251/280 seems to be enough
Janeka wisped: either that or I fluked. is convincing flukable?
Quotid wisped that she cheers
Sorae wisped: I had to put XP into convoking but I did it at convoking 70/223,
    talisman 300/346
Janeka wisped: maybe it's the convoking and talisman bonuses added together
Sorae wisped: Yeah. Or maybe there's a bare minimum of each and then the rest needs
    to be added together?
Janeka wisped: both my bonuses and the bonuses you said are around 530-560 added
    together
Sorae wisped that she nodnods
Janeka wisped: I'll put this on the research page on the wiki
Sorae wisped: Those bonuses are statted by the way. And I convinced in a circle.
Sorae wisped that she wore a bronze helm for the duration
