    Someone said using the satyr to discord a character for training purposes was nerfed at some point in a previous publish, any info on this? Link etc to info?

    I note that you can still get discorded, and your skill level drops.

    Never heard of such a nerf to that. I just trained magery to 120 spamming Lightening & Mind Blast with a mage weapon in hand while discord.

    thanks, I didnt think it had been, hadn't heard anything and was helping someone in chat when someone else said it was nerfed. I had advised the person to use the satyr/despise discords etc. Glad I wasnt steering them in the wrong direction.

    It was semi-nerfed a few years ago. Prior to the semi-nerf patch, when discorded the game registered your real skill level as the discorded skill level so your gains would reflect having the lower skill level. Effectively making your gains come much more often. The semi-nerf changed the game to take into considering your REAL skill level even when discorded so the gains became slower.

    You will still gain skills faster however because with any casting skill, your gains are based on how often you can cast spells. Being discorded lowers your skill level letting you cast lower level spells which use less mana. Using less mana to cast lower level spells enables you to cast more spells over time thus increasing your skills gains in an allotted time period over not being discorded.

    The Satyr trick isn't as effective as it once used to be but it still beats not using it at all :)
    Put a -29 mage weapon in your hand while discorded makes it work even faster for magery:)

    (It was in the patch notes a few years back but when and where I couldn't say)

    it all depends what you are trying to train,,,for some things a satry is great...for other things there are better ways

    I couldn't be bothered.....I trained from 30-95 in my house in a few hrs. Then bought and ate a 5.0 lock picking pink which cost me $2.99. Some times it just makes sense to buy stuff.....my recreational time is worth a lot to me!

    Just use a harbringer,place him outside your house,let him disco you,then go inside and train train train untill someone see him and kills him. Probably not so good on atl unless you live in a remote area. I had one on great lakes for a week before someone drug him off. It's the best way to do imbue
