Item:Tome of Skill
Introduced in Update 18 a Tome of Skill also known as a Skill Tome is a rare and powerful book that permanently grants an inherent bonus to one skill.
Skill tomes come in the range of +1 to +5.
Skill tomes can be universal (e.g. those included with Shadowfell Conspiracy purchase) - you can select which skill to improve while reading the tome (except UMD). Another variety is skill specific tome, e.g. Tome of Skill (Perform +1).
Upgrade Tomes of Skill were introduced in Update 18.2.
Unwanted tomes can be traded in for Purified Eberron Dragonshard Fragments, a rare item which is highly prized for advanced Cannith Crafting recipes, and so can be sold for a considerable amount on the Auction House and/or Shard Exchange.
