Skill gain: Medium

Anatomy is a skill ranging from 0-100. It is tied closely in with Weapon Skill, and allows the player to estimate the Strength and Dexterity of the target. It is similar to the Evaluate Intelligence skill's effect on Magery.

The target may be any living creature. Dead and non-living material does not have an anatomy. The player will not receive a direct answer, such as "That has a strength of 100 and a dexterity of 54" but rather would see something like "That is superhumanly strong and somewhat agile". At high levels of anatomy (above 80 in skill) you will also receive the message "This is being at x percent endurance" - where x is the current stamina level (in a percentage) of the mobile targeted.

Both messages are only estimates until the skill is GMed, at which point you will receive the correct answer every time. For example, if you use anatomy and target a character with 75 str, 75 dex and 38 stamina (51% of total), you should expect to receive the message "He looks extraordinarily strong and extraordinarily agile. This is being at fify percent endurance". But below GM, your character can make mistakes, and you might receive the message "He looks somewhat strong and extremely agile. This is being at seventy percent endurance".

Macroing Anatomy Download and install Razor.

Record a macro that looks like the following:

Use Skill: Anatomy
Wait For Target
Last Target (an NPC)
Pause 6000
Say: Guards

Next ALT + Click on the NPC to Auto-follow them, or alternatively find a stationary NPC like Lord British. Lord British is an exceptionally good choice because he can't be killed or lured away while you're AFK. This will Grandmaster your skill. It will take roughly 24 hours of uninterrupted macroing to GM this skill.
