The relationship between pupils and masters Edit
The problem with Pupils is one common misconception --- Becoming a pupil will give you the stats (skills, weapons, or pets) of the Master. This is not true in any way. Of course it makes sense that the master would "teach" the pupil some skills but you have to remember this is only a game!
Do not fall for those people saying "Pupil me and get a bear by level 3!" or "People who became my pupil to get the flail!". These are all just people who want to cheat you into their pupils and gain experiences from you.
You would better pupil people who really helped someone or provided tips for you.
Hope this article helps you all avoid training useless Brutes because someone told you to do so!
