probably a stupid question, (I took an 8 year break from UO), so bear with me all you vets out there: the higher your peacemaking, the longer the effect lasts on monsters? how long is the longest effect you can have on a monster? also, how in god's name are you supposed to raise peacemaking? it is the slowest thing EVER for me to raise. and musicianship. i am bard/tamer and ironically it has been about 1 billion times easier for me to raise taming than peace. i've already GMed animal lore and gotten taming to 90.3 in the time it's gotten me to reach 85.0 music and 54.3 peace (*embarrassed*). i area peace myself all the time, especially around those orc camps on arctic island. i also went to wyvern island in lost lands and peaced there for about an hour. raised about .3 as with all the other skills, is there a certain type of monster/creature you should peace from 50- 60, 60-70, etc.? if this keeps up, i'm going to get in a bad habit of falling asleep at my keyboard. thanks!
