    Good morning folks1

    Well this morning I happened to try out the invasion of Magincia with my bard.
    So I tried to provoke the Captains on each other..Hmm well with GM instruments after 50 attempts I gave up...as this was an undead spawn I thought I use an undead slayer lute...another 50 attempts...then I clicked on teh captains to look at them closely..Well they seemed rather humanoid then undead so Used a Gwendo repond slayer harp...*sigh* there goes another 50 charges...for one thing? are they humanoid,undead or etc? or you folks could give me some good tips for these buggers..Btw my bard is a legendary provoker with 120 disco and of course 120 music...And I play on the shard Europa

    Thank you for your replies in advance

    I regularly attend the invasions with my bard. I will say they must be 160 difficulty(the capt-generals). I discord them then take my time to ge them to fight. Sometimes i get them in 2 tryes some times alot more, Gm excp intruments only save for the other spawn. I got a pair of generals to fight numerouse times. Since Im a bard I chose the hard to get to generals to play with. Inside buildings, in the heart of a big spawn, everyones at the other invasion. Yesterday I had a general healer in a building with an AW a GD and a pair of lieutenants(drakes too) I discorded the general then provoked him on the non discorded spawn. It tooka few tried but once every one was grovin on him he went down in less than a minute. I got a 3mr 29 sdi 10 lrc book one shy of perfect!

    Curse main target(lowers BD)

    I discord invis repeat untill success

    I chose the non mage non ranged target as 1st provoke target then

    provoke invisi repeat untill success

    On a side note i do belive the fail timer on provoke is 8 seconds and the discord wear off is 11 for those invisible. So once your invised waiting for the provoke timer dont dilly-dally. The discord will wear off in 3 more seconds!

    My brother plays a necro-mage with massive sdi. He takes longer to "solo" a general then my bard does and he is limited to the generals that can be seperated from the herd. This is the main reason I chose the bard for invasions with that many mobs. Its crowd control. I tend to not bother with anything other than the generals unless they are on screen and attacking me.

    Once I have all the spawn on the target I take down protection(spell) and proceed to nuke him with low lvl lightning spells. Seems to be the fastest way. In fact I beleive the energy resist on them is typically on par with a corps skined fire resist so better to just use energy attacks.

    Thanks for the Tip! Well this morning I was at Mag again and this time I manage to get two Generals to fight each other..both discorded of course..it seems that Gm instruments are the best.
