I have started playing with a series of illiterate characters. I like the extra 5 points and I find reading to be boring. I also like the experience of figuring out ways to develop skills organically. Two questions:
Learning recipes by deconstructing items works, but is often pointless because you then already have the item. Are there other ways to learn recipes?
Are there any skills or recipes that will be impossible for an illiterate character to learn? I have focused on offensive builds but am branching into geekier builds for the challenge.
Any other experiences with illiterate builds welcome!
