Mine was so long ago that I can't remember for sure. I think it was Production Mastery but it might've been Critical Hit.

How 'bout y'all? Oh, and did it happen organically or did you specifically train it? In my case they were organic.

    Mine was definitely Windmill :D I specifically trained Windmill because at the time (2008/2009) it was the most useful skill for a warrior type like me. It used to drain your health each time you used it, so I normally cleared dungeons and content while naked haha :D It's also the first skill I got to Dan 3. When I returned to the game last year, the first thing I noticed was that Windmill never depletes your health anymore, and it was something that made me happy! Too bad I don't have pictures of when I first got Windmill master with a pile of dead zombies, but here's a random picture during one of the Dan tests :)

    Here's an album of pictures from 2009 and 2020. Too bad imgur messed up the upload so they're not in chronological order anymore.

    Lightningbolt. Everything was capped at 6, and I was a thunder mage. After update that uncapped everything, I trained lightningbolt on bears to rank 1 that evening, then worked on thunder afterward.

    I'm really curious how you manage to r1 Windmill first without getting r1 Combat Mastery one. Literally by doing any combat i get r1 on this lmao.

    I feel like it was Icebolt. That was definitely the first combat-related skill I got to r1.
    That was also my first Dan 3 skill (and only dan skill period until many many years later when the dan test revamp came about).

    I remember back then, Windmill and refine were definitely pushed as the "get these ranked up asap" skills, but I know I didn't get Windmill to r1 until at least Shadow Missions were released, since I remember finishing that up in Their Method.

    Definitely icebolt, because it was so useful for breathing room back in yon olden days. No clue whatsoever as to what my second r1 was, but I had a really odd setup designed to make hitting Windmill r1 as easily as possible.

    Windmill because I was told over and over to get that done first because back then the training reqs were way harder and grindy. We didn't have training potions or talent bonuses, and -cp equipment was difficult to obtain. It took me 3 months in the Tir Na Nog graveyard (with a life) to get it to rank 1.

    Y'all have it EASY. Understand and respect that. lol.

    During that time, I actually avoided ranking up anything else. I did Rank F to Rank 5 in Ciar and Rabbie Basic, then 5 to 1 at Tir Na Nog zombie graveyard :)

    Icebolt was what I used in order to stop enemies on their tracks while I tried to reposition. Rank F was enough for that.

    I avoided Advance dungeons because of the multi-aggro lol! I primarily stuck with Basic and Intermediate versions :)

    It took a very long time, probably a year. I made a Windmiller's guide back then and apparently, I made it back in July 2009 lol! So that meant from sometime in 2008, it took me all that period to 2009 to master it :D Unfortunately at that time, youtube used close captions for notes so I used that. They took that away some time ago so there are many spots in the video without text (except the ones I hardcoded). For the sake of nostalgia about what the game used to look like, here it is. The summary of the guide can be found on 9:27 :)

    Somehow (like you), my first rank 1 was critical hit. It's probably because I didn't focus on training any specific skills, and critical hit sounded cool in my head back then. I kinda played mabi more for the social aspects back then tho.

    Ranged. Which was a massive mistake.
