Questions about Linkshells and AlchemyFollow

(Please excuse me if this is posted somewhere, and I just missed it.)

How can you tell the name of someone's link? I think I went through just about every command in the menu, and I couldn't find it. Is it just not listed, or am I that blind... (by the way, targeting a player and using check didn't help)

Also, I made a new character and started with Alchemy. ...um, there are no specific leves for Alchemy in the taverns (at least, I didn't see one), so any advice on where to start/what to do?

In regards to the leves, did you try both NPCs behind the counter?

I did. I don't remember seeing any rank 1 leves for Alchemy though.

Sometimes crafts don't have any rank 1 leves available at the time (only rank 5). From my experience, all you can do is accept those leves, wait for the timer to refresh, and hope that some rank 1 leves come up next time. You can also try to do some rank 5 leves (I was able to complete one as a rank 1 armorer back in CB), though they may be more difficult to finish.

The same thing happened to me 2 or 3 times as well, but I don't remember if it was Alchemy or not...I believe since the leves are chosen at random (probably within a certain rank range,) there may be times when it just so happens there are no level 1 leves available. In that case, about the only thing you can do is either level up on your own, or wait for the leves to reset. Personally I don't understand why they can't list the local leves by ranks like regional leves do...

As for checking another player's linkshell name, I don't think you can at this point. Donno if it's intentional on SE's part or not...Maybe they deemed it unnecessary?
