    The All-American Way. The way everything is done at Turbine.
    It's definitely an N-word.

    I think you are taught the toughness feat something like this:

    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

    It's similar to the way the Silver Flame extracts confessions from heretics, but with less nipple clamps and more hot sauce.

    Depends on the trainer. Fred, for example, I am pretty sure messes with my brain till I think I am tough.

    Default How a Trainer Trains "Toughness" Feat

    He throws you a leather jacket and says, "Here - put this on. You're tough, now."
    "...At least it tells us they understand our language; they're just not willing to speak to us in it. -Who knew they were French?"

    Trainer goes first, then lets you "win".

    It's a lot quicker than 500 street fights.

    Astreya the Unturning

    It's always a shame when the hammer of poor design choices smashes the fun of player tactical adaptation.

    You remember that vandamme movie Kickboxer? The one where he has to kick a tree and then have his legs pulled apart with ropes? It's sort of like that but worse.

    Well I don't know about other servers but on Khyber the trainer exposes your build to the entire community of "trolls" that will tell you everything that is wrong with it and how it can never survive in Epic Elite content and how un-optimal it is (most of these comments coming from people that follow builds on the forum and have never examined the whys and wherefores before)... If you can survive that without crying or raging you are then considered "Tough Skinned" and are auto-granted the toughness feat.

    Remember how the Kobolds always say they will always hate you? Well the trainer holds you still and makes them prove it

    By yanking out ALL of your nose-hairs in one go.

    If you can survive that, you can survive anything.

    The trainer simply places two hands on either side of your forehead and proceeds to suck out all the weakness.

    The only thing that remains is toughness.

    Trainer: So you want to toughen up, eh?
    Adventurer: Yeah, I want people to hit me and not feel it!
    Trainer:: You want people to hit you?
    Adventurer:: Nooo, stupid! I don't want them to hit me!
    Trainer:: You just want them to not feel it...
    Adventurer: No, I want me to not feel it!
    Trainer: You could try wearing better armor.
    Adventurer: I have good armor. I want to be tough!
    Trainer: Life is tough.
    Adventurer: @#!%!
    Trainer: Say that again and I'll hit you.

    They give you a huge textbook to read on the subject of Toughness. After you've read it, you are tougher. Just like using a constitution tome, and it makes the same amount of sense.
