How to make new players designate to have a certain skill
such as
Animal lore 100
Animal Taming 100

how to change CharacterCreation.cs
Try looking at around line 422 in charactercreation.cs... you see - new SkillNameValue(SkillName.Anatomy, 30), Thats where it's setting the skills for each profession. Add whatever you'd like just make sure there is NO comma after the last entry in each profession... Notice in case 1 (or the warrior profession), after this - SkillNameValue(SkillName.Tactics, 30) there is no comma after the last parenthesis the last entry in each profession has no comma.

hope this helps.
Most shards would just use a skill ball, its easier to add in and you can just add it in their bag as a starter item.
