Student

This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

Fortress Mode[edit]

Military dwarves watching demonstrations will gain Student experience in addition to gaining experience in combat skills. Presumably, dwarves that are good students learn faster from these demonstrations. Scholars may also become students of other scholars in a master/apprentice relationship, see scholar for details.

The dwarf leading the demonstration gains teacher experience, which also probably affects learning rate.

Guildhall demonstrations similarly train Student skills slowly. Engineer Guildhall can also hold Studying Demonstrations, allowing a Proficient Teacher/Student to train unskilled dwarves to Proficient Student in six weeks.

Adventure Mode[edit]

The student skill can be raised slowly by reading certain books throughout the world. It seems books written by scholars (as opposed to necromancers) are the only ones that increase the student skill. It's currently unknown what effect (if any) a higher student skill has on gameplay in adventure mode.
