    Now that Provo utilizes the "animal/monster at proper skill level" for gaining, ( instead of the old need to use lots of different animals/monsters to gain) - ie. you can gain on the same 2 animals IF they're at your level - Does the same hold true for Disco? IE - do you still need lots of animals to gain Disco or can you gain the same with the same 2 animals now (assuming they're at your skill level)?

    :confused:

    for disco you only need 1 animal.

    so your answer is yes.


    BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    there is allways a but.....

    BUT, even though you only need one animal to train, with disco that will slow down your training. basically it makes you ineffective.
    its not 'powertraining'

    and here's why.
    if your training with one pet this is how it goes.

    disco animal
    invis for 11 seconds.

    rinse and repeat, yes?

    k, so for 1 disco attempt your looking like 12 seconds.
    for 10 disco attempts your looking (10x12seconds=) 120 seconds (2 minutes)

    now.... try this.

    get 10 animals.
    disco 1
    wait 5 seconds
    disco 2
    wait 5 seconds
    work your way down the line.....
    get all 6 discoed
    NOW you invis for 11 seconds.
    so now you have done 10 disco's and your invis to reset and your all in for (10 attemps x 5 seconds ((per attempt) + 11 seconds for the hide=) 61 seconds in total.

    so this is what you have.
    you have 1 pet and to do it 10 times takes you 2 minutes.
    you have 10 pets and to do them 10 times takes you 1 minute.

    see the difference?
    now if you wanna take this to the poo powergaming level go get 30 animals!!!!

    the more animals you have, the more attempts you get in before you invis to reset the disco on them.

    fun, eh?

    (the 5 seconds was a ruff guess, i think its actually like 6 seconds or 7, depending on your barding mastery)
