“Does this Fish Steak taste bad to you?”
There are few more perilous jobs in the world than that of “official taster.” But in Britannia, with a bit of skill in Taste ID, you can both protect yourself from “accidental” poisoning and keep track of your potions and potion kegs.
Taste Identification allows players to detect the contents of an unknown potion keg or if food has had poison applied to it. It is considered a Useless Skill and the few players that undertake it do so for mainly roleplaying reasons.
- 0 - 30: Can be trained at NPC Alchemist, Baker, Butcher, Farmer, Hair Stylist, or a Herbalist.
- 0 - 75: Taste ID a piece of food (most commonly fishsteaks) that has been poisoned. One piece should get you to 75 though it slows significantly at 60 skill. Scrolls of Alacrity can make this much easier.
- 75 - 100: Currently there seems no way to gain above 75 through normal methods. Every item you taste starting at 75 will be too easy to get a gain from even a GGS. To get around this many use the satyr trick and SoTs.
