I come and go from this game in cycles, I have 2 accounts, and 14 characters. I also recall the days when my gm music, gm peace, gm provoke, gm taming, gm lore, gm magery, gm eval use to own entire dungeons. I know many changes have come and gone, but my bard today has 120 music, 120 disco, 120 peace, 120 provoke, 110 magery, 110 eval, 20 focus. And he sucks.... I fail at just about everything. The only thing I can ever count on is area peace. I thought today i'd take him to the town invasions, what a joke. Only thing I could suceed at was provoking drakes on to other drakes. I'm glad that I have 480 skill points invested, and I can't even peace a dragon anymore. I'm thinking of just dumping all the skills and making a different character class. Bards got hit to hard by the nerf stick.
