Description: Scholars are the researchers, teachers, librarians, curators, students and other academians that protect the knowledge of advanced civilizations and pass down the wisdom from previous generations. They excel at educating, organizing, cataloging, and categorizing. Fighting? Not so much.

A Scholar earns no combat experience, but won't hinder their party's experience either. Scholars should focus on teaching others what they learn, writing about their adventures, seeking out libraries and bookstores, and using various lore and calligraphy abilities. Scholars may level slower than traditional adventurers, but they can also level without putting themselves at great risk.

How to Play

Scholars don't earn Experience from combat, unlike most classes. Instead, the earn XP through studious endeavors, such as writing, teaching other characters, using abilities from the Education Lore, Arcane Lore, Nature Lore, Combat Lore or Calligraphy domains and finding new bookstores and libraries.

Multi-Classing Options and Effectiveness


  • While scholars are trained in the ability to read many different languages and styles and copy text from any language, they do not possess magical training necessary to actually use magical scrolls.
  • Scholar's may earn up to 25% of the experience required to reach the next level per MUDDAY from writing. This can be from one large text, or many small texts.
