When drinking a potion of education or reading a scroll of education, does the blessed/cursed/uncursed status make any difference? or would say an uncursed one do the exact same thing as a blessed one?

I think a blessed scroll of education has a higher chance to grant a *new* skill, maybe even guarantees it. I definitely experienced not getting a new skill after having read an uncursed one, instead receiving training in something as useless as Haggling. So I recommend blessing these in any case.

Blessing them certainly doesn't guarantee a new skill - I've gotten increases to poor skills from blessed scrolls before. I'm fairly sure you get a much better starting base and dice increase on skills from a blessed scrolls. I haven't tried using a cursed scroll - I'd be worried about it draining skill levels.

In my games, I decide to bless them or not,
depending on how much holy water I have. I
haven't noticed more luck with blessed
potions/scrolls when it comes to granting
new skills, but if possible, I bless them
anyway.

The best I have done with 'educations' lately,
is four in one game. I found two blessed and
two uncursed. The blessed ones yeilded a new
skill (metalurgy) and increased an existing
skill (dodge). The uncursed ones yeilded a
new skill (alertness) and increased (haggling).
The only good effect was Alertness, and I
got that one just before fighting the Archmage.


Put me in the 'fool filter', where I belong!
