My archer/bowyer has 100 bowcraft and 96.1 arms lore. He just got that last 0.1 after approximately 150 attempts, using the Arms Lore skill directly. I don't know if it would go any faster if I was making bows and hoping for indirect skill gains. They seemed really slow that way also. The other day I tried to get the Satyr trick to work, but he kept provoking foes on me, and never seemed to discord me. I couldn't shake the aggro, either. If I left the zone and waited a while, then came back, the provoked foes were right back on me. So right now I've got a macro set up in the enhanced client that will execute Arms Lore 30 times in about 60 seconds. I'm typing this msg, watching the game screen for when I need to restart the macro. Hmm, there may be hope yet -- 3 ticks since I started typing. I'm up to 96.5 now.
