Is healing (bandage) difficulty based?

    Does it make a difference in skill gain if the difficulty level to heal is very easy? If it does how would I make it more difficult? Wearing armor just decreases the amount of damage.

    After 60 Healing you'll want the target poisoned to get the best gains. Once you get to 90, training works best on a dead person.

    Yes it is difficulty based... Depending on how high or low your Healing is being poisoned often makes it more "difficult" to heal and gives better gains... But if you are under I think 60 or so you can't heal poison...

    There is a quest in Ter Mur that gets you a very handy item that pretty much tells you how easy or difficult the skill you are using is... giving you an idea of how "challenging" it is. This might be helpful http://www.uoguide.com/Crystal_ball_of_knowledge

    How badly damaged the target is also affects the difficulty of healing, and therefore the skill gain. To GM Healing on my chars with GM Chiv, i'd just cast Noble Sacrifice to reduce myself to 1 Health, then heal with bandies back up. Rinse and repeat.

    Just grab a load of bandies and a cloak of corruption. Make a macro to bandage self and wear the cloak. May not be the fastest method but you can leave it running all day.

    Well you still need to activate the macro regularly since looping is illegal isnt it??

    Also you lose a lot of fame this way....not so good if you are training a paladin

    My guy is a Pally and has 87 healing, I do have the ball of knowledge and it kept giving me the message that the difficulty was very easy.
    So If I cast sacrifice on myself that won't lower my title(karma& Fame)? I'll give it a try

    Realized I had to have another character in the house with me to achieve NS. Worked like a charm Thank You for the help.

    Healing still says very easy though.

    Go to the tentacle of the harrower in khaldun ( not sure if I spelled that correctly). It does an area damage . You can sit in one spot and keep healing till gm. This is also a great spot to train archery, throwing, tactics, and anatomy from 80 to 120.

    It might well be but I've used this method a few times (while standing in Luna bank so I don't time out) and never had anything happen lol. Remember you can get away with a lot of "illegal" things in this game as sadly the team don't seem to care.

    Ps. It's not technically looped. It's just a very very long macro in the EC so I don't think that is illegal as I'm doing everything using official software and not 3rd party apps.

    We dont want to start another debate on bank sitting and whether or not it is against the rules of conduct. :)

    If you can macro it in the EC, it's legal by definition. Case closed.

    You can hire an NPC for like 6 gold/UO day, and cast Noble Sacrifice when he's near you. After you cast Noble Sacrifice, and heal with a bandage, you should see two skill checks for Healing. One will say "Very Easy", the other will say either "Challenging" or "Optimal".
    This can be combined with the Satyr Trick in Twisted Weald for even faster gains, assuming you still have enough skill to cast Noble Sacrifice after being Discoed. +Chiv Jewelry helps there.

    You lose Karma every 30 secs while wearing the Cloak of Corruption, not fame. You can get down to the cap of -32,000 Karma this way, which is good for Necros since the lower their Karma, the more Mana a Shadow Wisp gives them.

    I'd just set a large, heavy nut or bolt on the key.
