    Hi,

    I am working up Provocation, my current skill is 57.2. I am using Poo's training guide and it says I am supposed to use polar bears till I hit 65....the issue I am having is, the crystal ball of knowledge says the skill use is Very Easy, I think it is supposed to say optimal or close to that. Looking for advice I guess, should I continue using polar bears or move on...???

    Thanks

    that is the absolute max that you can get out of polar bears.
    i did this last week on Drachs for fun.
    i actually switched out at 55 and went to gamans.
    then i rode the gaman train up to 75 then went onto lowland bouras.

    took me one day to go from 30 skill to 100.
    then another day to go from 100 to 110 using the bard mastery.
    then another day to go from 110 to 120.

    with my music locked at 100.

    did the same with disco and peace too.

    Hi Poo,

    Training is going well, I am creeping up on 75 provo....I am wondering if you could let me know where a good spot to work Lowland Bouras might be?? My bard has very low skill points.....100 music (locked) low magery to recall around and 72 - 73 provo, that is it. So he can't handle many tough spawns. I don't want him dying a lot....so any nice quiet spawning locations you would be willing to share??

    Thanks....

    I didnt do the quiet spawn stuff. I basically ran around provoing bouras and running from sliths just doing laps around the tiny mountain and stopping to provo.

    there are 2 ranges for them, one way up north and one down by the lower town, but sliths are around both.

    personally id just go tame 2 and take them elsewhere.
    OR, provo them onto the sliths.

    what shard you on, maybe i can log on and go tame some up for ya.

    Hi Poo,

    I play on Chessy..but I took your advice and had my tamer go get me two and set them up for some provo training. Any other helpful hints you wouldn't mind sharing??

    Thanks

    Hi Poo,

    I just hit 90.1 provo and did the mastery quest. How do I use the mastery to skill up form here?? Do I let it run, or do I have to keep casting it over and over??

    Thanks for all your help...

    as i am training provocation right now id like to share my experiences too:
    • Train music to 100 first and lock it
    • Try to only have the skill points on the char you really need and try to soulstone the rest and park them on other character
    • Eat the powerscrolls you like to use right now for better gains
    • Get rings with provo skill points on them so you can adjust your skill while training
    I used these mobs for training ...
    1. Started char with 50 provocation
    2. Used polar bears till 60s
    3. Used gamans till 70s
    4. Used lowland bouras till 90
    I can say that it really is a slow gain ... the plan is to use masteries up to 120 now.

    i wouldnt say its slow.
    its about 22 hours to GM then another day to 110 and a third day to 120.

    for skills that are game changers that isnt bad at all!
