Some silly questions

    Hi all:)

    I have an old tamer and, as I'm very lazy and like to play safe, added peace to the template when I began to tame aggressive casting pets.

    The thing is as the bard part of the template was an afterthought I don't know as much about it as I do about taming.
    So I have some questions that are probably very silly :blushing:

    Here goes :

    I know that area peace will work on player's pets, but it doesn't on the players themselves right ? I wonder because of the ability of the Dryads to prevent us to cast ...
    Meaning can I use area peace near other players without being a problem for them ?

    I'm 110 music and 106 ish peace, when I'll be 120/120 will I be able to peace a GD?

    I know it's possible to disco the big bosses (meli and other), but I never heard about using peace on them. Is it because peace doesn't work or because it's not really helpful against them?
    And if it's the later, why is that ?

    Thanks a lot for your help :D
     
  2. #1 It does work on players briefly.

    #2 No, area peace will often cause problems for other players, stopping their pets, their swing or just making everything retarget.

    #3 I expect you can now with a Slayer instrument.

    #4 The latter, because of #2.

    Oh that was quick, thanks !

    Well so area peace is a no no when I'm not alone, duly noted !

    Just one thing about #4, you're speaking about area peace, I was thinking about the "targeting" one if you know what i mean :). But seeing that you didn't even think about it I guess it means that it doesn't work.

    Anyway a new one just popped 1 min ago, I was about to edit my post :

    Do I need dex and how many ?
    I always thought that it was a "must have" for a bard seeing that using your barding skills raises it but it's just me guessing, I would prefer to know ;)
     
  4. I don't think any peerless/boss/champion type monsters can be targeed Peace.

    Dex doesn't affect bard skills in any way. Though it does help you 'catch your breath' quicker when using a Fire Horn.
