Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Only 1 course can be purchased per visit. Upon purchase, you gain the Academy Course effect connected to a queue for an event in which you gain the Learnable Feat corresponding to the bought course.
  • If you purchase the Haggle Expert course, you will gain also 1 Rupee in its course event.
  • Only 3 courses (or less if you have >12 of the feats) are available for purchase per visit; if you already have a Learnable Feat, it won't show up as a course option for you.
  • If you have Spell Deflecting due to an item's passive effect, it still won't show up as a course option.
  • If you subscribe to the Spell Deflecting course and then gain an item which passively grants Spell Deflecting before the course, you'll still learn it from the course; if you later lose said item, you retain the feat.
  • The available courses shown on one visit won't be carried over to future visits; you'll get a new random selection from the course pool.
  • This event is formatted somewhat like a shop but doesn't have course prices affected by the Haggle Expert feat and does not count as a shop for Hypnotic Influence. It does, however, have prices affected by Wild Mode: Silly Sales.
