First go to "Knowledge Base" and read up Tutorials 1.1x Item Mechanics and then all mentioned Files Guides 1.1x. Then you download the following tools: AFJ Sheet, QTblEditor and WinMPQ.
Once you went through everything and still have questions come back here.

Cheers

Token is largely hardcoded, though you can get the result you want using a totally new item. There are some tutorials in the knowledge base that explain how to do it.

If you want the result without learning the details of how to create the mod, I suggest you post in job requests forum.

If you really do want to learn the techniques of modding, you'll be spending a good amount of time reading in the knowledge base.

Without the understanding of how to do the modification, even a step by step instruction on your goal would be mostly useless to you. I would give the instructions here but I'm at work, sorry.

The gist of your skill token will be to create a consumable item that functions like a potion, but increases your skillpoints. You can make it usable by a character only a certain number of times if you like.

The drop rates are primarily dictated by itemratio.txt, look at the fileguide in the knowledge base, it will explain how to use the columns on that file for the result you want.

Here is a copy of mine, which can only be used once

Code: Select all

Book of Learning	Book of Learning		1	100	0	0	0	0	0	1	0			1bl	1bl	1bl	16	1	2	0	0	0	flpbbk	invbbk			0	xxx			1	0	elix		item_book	12	item_book	0	0	5	0	0	0	0	0	0	0			0	-1	4					newskills	(stat(183.base)<1) ? 2 : 0	book_of_learning	(stat(183.base)<1) ? 1 : 0			1	1blDesc		0	0	0	non	0					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255					255			0	0	0	xxx	xxx						0
