Disco gaining question

    I have 120 music and was told to stone it off and buy/work music back up to 50 or so and lock it to get better disco gains. Can someone confirm/deny this for me? Right now I am at 71 disco and I fail a lot even on low barding critters with this setup. Should I let music raise a little move for my current level of disco?

    Ultimately I have jewlery that will take me from 95-120 dicso so I am just trying to get to 95 as easily as possible. Thanks in advance.

    I locked it at 99.9, think 100 works aswell. But you dont want to go much lower than that.

    100

    anything lower you run the risk of failing the first check which is the music check.
    if that check fails then youve wasted 11 seconds.
    if you run 50 your not even gonna make it to the disco or provo check 50% of the time, which, really kinda makes training counterproductive, no?

    120 is too high.
    cause you get a bonus for skill over 100.

    and you dont want a bonus, you just want to pass the music check.

    Ah excellent!

    Could the same tactic be used on taming?
    eg: best to train with 100 Animal lore?

    No. Lore doesn't give a taming success chance, just a control chance.
