Disco Gaining Log

    So after much debate I decided to add Disco to my Peace/Tamer.

    I stoned my Gm Magery, and began working on Disco last work. I started with buring my Advanced Char Token I got from 8th Anniv., stoned Disco, and began at 70. From 70 to 90 I just kept killing Rune Beattles. This took about 5 days, maybe 15-20 hours worth of Beattle killing. I banked (minus a few death and insurance pays), 1.6 mil. At 90 gains seemed very slow, so I jeweled up to 115 and went after Swoops for a solid 3 days, maybe 15 hours worth of Swoop killing and I got up to 94.8 real.

    So finally today I had an entire day to kill and nothing to do, so I decided to try Poo's method of Disco gain. I went out and tamed 10 Hirus. This caused me to die 4 times since I had stoned my 120 Music, and then had to rework it back to 100. ( I started by taking the 85 from my Adv Char Template that I took the Disco from). I did gain 0.1 in Disco from taming the Hirus.

    So, starting at 94.9 @ 12:11 pm, here is a log of every gain for the day:

    So in about 9 hours I gained 5.1 points. I used a 12 second delay instead of 10 seconds just to accomodate for any lag, and I used one big macro in UOA to Disco down the line of 10. Gains were really steady until I hit 99.0. At any rate, this does to show this method does work, requires a bit of patients though.

    Good luck to all.

    You can't Its illegal to macro unattened, You have to hit that uoa start Button every time

    Or assign it a key but leaving that depress only interupps the macro.

    Better off going down your line 3/4 times make a really long macro.

    so, here i am.
    i am working on my last bard.

    (yaaa Europa)
    so thought id swing in and post my gains since there is a gain log post here.

    started at 33.3 from NPC.
    went and tamed 30 polar bears.
    discoed polar bears to 65.0 - took 6 hours.
    killled off polar bears.
    got Petra to make me a ring and watch with +10 disco on each with imbuing.
    replaced with 25 cu sidhe's
    plugged in the rest of the day workingon cu's - aprox 18 hours.
    102.1

    so for the rash of posts saying that disco is slow to train and its impossible to gain fast..... well one day from 0 to 102, i think that is totally acceptable.
    i could (if i wasnt so OCD) siimply stop now and imbue a ring or watch with +15 skill and i could call this skill done.

    this is my pure bard im working.
    i finished off my disco tamer the day before but didnt keep track of the time.
    but i was 0 to 120 in under 4 days.

    i think where the problem is is that some people go and clock in 2 hours and that for them is 'a day'
    where to me a day is 23 hours - as long as the servers are up.

    so when i say i can 120 in 3 days.
    thats 72 hours.
    not 6 hours.

    hope this helps cut down on some of the confussion.
