I often see in help chat things like "I've trained xyz but it doesn't seem to work" and have to reply along the lines of "aah... actually that isn't in game yet". It's a nightmare for new players (and not much better for vets sometimes!) My own knowledge of skills is far from complete, so I thought maybe people could list the skills that they know are not working as intended, or where there is no point training them above a certain level. The format could be:

SKILL NAME
Status = (not in game, not fully functional, bugged, no need to max, etc)
Description
xxxx

I'll start things off...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit 1: Spoilers
There may be skills in game that do actually work, but the way to make them work is not common knowledge. Rather than give away any arcane knowledge, feel free to put in the description section "Working - method is trade secret" or something.
Edit 2: Accuracy
It's impossible to test and check everything, so there may be info here that is inaccurate, incomplete, or has gone out of date. Feel free to ask questions or add comments, that way we can share our knowledge to make this as useful as possible.

Wait for a server reset and peoples management skill should be functioning. So people might not want to drop the skill if they still plan on having it.

We've had so many server restarts the past couple of weeks I assume that it should be working for everyone, but I'm still hearing from people having trouble with it. Hopefully someone will open a ticket that gets a definite answer. In the meantime, I have edited the skill warning to include your info so people can make a decision on it.

SKILL NAME = SWIFT RIDING
Status = bugged
Description
Skill description says "Higher skill slightly increases maximum riding speed and lowers the stamina drain of your mount."
In fact it makes no difference to max speed, even at LVL 100.
It is unclear whether it has any effect on stamina.

can confirm swift riding affects neither speed nor stamina, ive specifically tested it with people who have 0 swift riding, no difference.

SKILL NAME = BOILED LEATHER LORE
Status = not in game
Description
I can't find any evidence that this can be crafted, or even obtained as a drop any more. Prove me wrong and I'll update this :)
(Note: You can put leather and water in a pot and boil it with the cooking skill. You will get a type of boiled leather, but as a food - you can't craft with it. And it tastes disgusting).

SKILL NAME = SKIMMING
Status = probably not in game
Description
There is a rumour that the book can be found as a rare drop from a powerful enemy, but I think this is just an adventurer's tall story.

knockdown does work, it just doesn't work as intended and we are lacking the animation itself, hence it's not exactly worth investing in as the dismount itself is not as brutal as it meant to be, knockback also works but only with NPCs against player no p v p etc

SKILL NAME: Taste Identification
Status: Hidden skill, but one gets a "skill increased to x" message and Alchemy skill up when eating something (which skills Taste Identification)
Skill doesn't work. In MO1 a hight skill decreased the error bar of food and potion attributes. In current state everybody can see all attributes in perfect matter.
