[Peacemaking] Holy bugger peacemaking

    There has to be a better way than this.

    I started at 0 Peace; bought my way up to 30.

    Been area peacing for about an hour and a half and am only at 32.6

    Musicianship is GM'd.

    Is there some silver bullet that I'm missing here?

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that I've already been browsing the forums looking for answers.

    no just make a macro that uses peace and targets self and run around while holding the key down talk with people do what ever just keep the key down if i am running places i wedge a penny in the key board
     
  3. I found faster skill gains by targeting individual creatures rather than area peace, walk through the oaks spawn and peace everything. I got to 115 peace in a couple days that way.

    Using the 2D client, it is something like:
    Target Next
    Use Skill Peacemaking
    Wait for Cursor
    Target Last

    Then just walk through a spawn and hold the macro key down. It will automatically target the next creature. Just keep walking around out of range of the first ones and they will un-peace, so you never run out of targets. This works for discord mid-level gains too, but not so well for provoke.

    Been area peacemaking for approx 2 hours.

    Went from 44 peacemaking to 57.5 peacemaking.

    Now the gains are really dropping off.

    I tried heading to the Forest Lord spawn and doing the next target peace method but I didn't get any gains doing it.

    Is there a better tool to use to determine what monster I should be using peace on (other than bard calculator, which has mixed reviews)?

    if you area peace stay moving the gains will be much better than if you just stand at the bank and spam peace it will take much longer! there are some who say it does not matter and I believe they are wrong I have done this many times and ALWAYS get better gains if I stay moving or in areas with multiple creatures I don't know if this is left over code from when you could 8x8 or what but it does work especially if you move across server boundaries

    lol yes sir I did :) that comes in very handy!
     
  9. Very nice... now if we can get a default search so people can put their current skill in and automatically generate a list like that within +/-10 skill points. That would be much easier to direct people!

    You can use whatever range you want: +-10, +-16, +-25. etc.

    "Secrets":
    Lock Music at GM.
    Use normal, not exceptional or slayer, instruments.
    Get yourself Discoed in the Twisted Wield and train there.

    Suggestion:
    Go out and hunt with the skill to avoid the mind-numbing boredom (and collect gp, hides, etc.).
