    Is it possible to train healing on a Cu Sidhe by poisoning yourself and letting the Cu heal you?

    To be honest it's not something I've ever tried. I imagine it might work to a point. Healing is hard to finish past the 90s on a cu at the best of times, so I would expect you might hit a wall at some point.

    I trained my pups with rotting corpses until I got bored senseless then I used my bard to discord the pup, so I could train it by casting poison on it.

    I double client. I use my bard on one account to disco the pup, and the other account with a mage (or mage/tamer) to poison the pup. It is still super tedious, but it gets them to GM faster than any alternatives I've found.

    anything stated above works well. the issue is getting the dog from 90 -100. in the past the best way has always been corpses due to the level of their poison. the miasma mortals and im not sure if that would do the trick.

    Any reason this wouldn't work if I put Music/Disco on my Tamer?

    That would enable you to discord your own pet. Not sure of the rest of your tamers template to know if you could effectively poison it as well. In the alternative, the Cu will continue to gain healing skill without the need to poison it if you keep it discorded while you hunt with it. Just be careful, when discorded they can die much faster.

    That's how I do it, one of my tamers is also a bard so she takes care of any cu training I need to finish. What I used to do was simply log in each morning and disco the pup then cast poison on it till I got bored or ran out of mana. Then I'd let the disco wear off and take it out hunting to train other skills. I'm not very good at sitting doing the same thing without getting bored, so I like to have some variety when I'm training pets. Otherwise it becomes a chore rather than part of the enjoyment of being a tamer.

    Thanks for all the help but one last question. Anything special I need to do this (IE. Felucca, Guilded, In a house, etc)?

    If you're training in Tram, then you'd want to be guilded and outside the guard zone just to play it safe. In Fel, you don't need to be guilded, but choose a quiet spot so you're safe when you flag. I tend to train guilded in Fel outside my home, tell the pup to stay, disco then cast on it each time I hear the heal noise.

    Any reason why you can't train it in your Fel home?

    Not at all startle. Depending on shard, if my tamer and bard are on different accounts, I will take them to Fel to do this. If they're on the same account, I do it in Tram. What you are thinking will work fine.

    No. It is still discoed, but for whatever reason the healing shows just like it's not. Start poisoning it and you will see that the healing does in fact increase.
