Disco, how necessary?

Discussion in 'UO Bard' started by Anyer, Oct 20, 2009.

    I have a bard with 120, peace, provo and music and 90ish disco with a 120 cap. How critical is it that I actually get Disco to 120? What will that allow me to do that I can not do already? Thanks in advance.

    With 120 you can discord paragons and other monsters with 160 barding difficulty.

    Check the Barding Calculator to see the difference for yourself, between 90 and 120.

    Is there something preventing you from raising it to 120?

    Laziness mainly, and my desire to have as much meditation as possible. I need to fit LP, Carto and magery on her some how too but I can stone off carto to save some points.

    Once you get to 120 Discord, you will never look back. Another difference is how much the target's resists and skills drop when discorded. They drop by 20% at GM and 28% at 120 skill.

    Try 120 on Test. See for yourself.

    Personally, I find 120 Diso infinitely more useful than 120 Peace. I run a 6X120 bard/mage with disco, provo and music, and that template is the cat's ass for virtually any spawn you will encounter.
     
  8. Second Aibal's statement, have exact same template. Peace is pretty much useless in my opinion. Disco is critical against tougher beasts.
