From the FAQ: <blockquote><hr> Discordance: This skill is used to weaken a creature. Like Provocation and Targeted Peacemaking Discordance is difficulty based. To get the correct skill necessary to successfully discord a target reduce its base difficulty by 20% (10 points). To use the skill - use skill discordance - target the creature If successful, your target will lose a percentage of its skills and stats. The percentage lost is dependant on the bard’s Discordance skill. For instance, at 50.0 skill, the target loses 10% from all stats and skills; and at 100.0 skill the target loses 20% from all stats and skills. Once the effect wears off, the target's skill and stats will return to normal. (Does not affect player characters.) [/ QUOTE ] This does not affect resists? I decided to convert my pvp mage into a pvm mage. Dropped wrestling and I'm looking at something like this: 120 Magery 120 Eval 120 Med 120 Resist 120 Music 120 Discord I always wanted a provoker, but the double targeting is a hassle (especially if you miss). Peace would be nice. But I've heard a lot of good things about Discord. Is it really that good? I would consider dropped resist for Provoke... but I can't stand getting poisoned all the time and getting paralyzed forever. Discord only?
