What needs work: Missing information of fate locked challenges. Difficulties unknown, and several options unknown.


Provide Master-Classes in Etiquette is a carousel in Mahogany Hall in which you take on either a Devil, Clayman, Rubberyman or Elegant lady as a pupile, for a payout in Nevercold Brass Sliver, Shards of Glim, Nodule of Deep Amber or many different things respectively. You need to raise their Pygmalion and then eventually graduate them.

The Basics[edit]

Picking your Pupil[edit]

Initially you will have to pick one of 4 options, though 2 are fate locked.

Pupil Average Payout Average Actions to Complete Average EpA
Take on a Louche Devil 4780 x  Nevercold Brass Sliver 37.4 1.28
Take on a Clay Pupil 3982 x  Shards of Glim 31.7 1.261
Take on a Rubbery Pupil FATE

  • 1 x Nodule of Trembling Amber
  • 1 x  Favours: Rubbery Men
  • E 65.23[1]

Take on an Elegant Lady FATE 44 1.39
  1. 1.0 1.1 Rubbery Favour Valued at E 4.2
  2. 2.0 2.1 Includes 1 Action to cash in Rubbery Favour

Starting Your Training[edit]

Initially you will have 6 options, of which the first three will raise Pygmalion by +2 CP while the last 3 will raise it by +3 CP. These will all be Persuasive 97-111 challenges. Unless you can 100% one higher than it, the 4th option will be your best choice. This does not hold true on the fate options, for which all 6 options only provide +2 anyways. Additio0nally the fate choices require some Pygmalion in order to unlock all of the basic choices.

Pygmalion Options[edit]

As you progress, you will unlock various options that allow you to take Pygmalion challenges. Unless you can 100% it, these challenges are a bad bet, because failing them will reduce your Pymalion level, and take you longer to reach the final payout.

Payout[edit]

At Pygmalion 12, you will unlock the payout option. Take it immidiately. You may have to attempt several times after building up Pygmalion once again.

Conclusion[edit]

This is not a particularly profitable grind.
