[Peacemaking] @ 63.0 skill, using GM Instruments... gains...terrible.

    I'm trying to re-GM Peacemaking (don't ask.../sigh), Im at 63.0 or so (Music is 100.0), I'm using exceptional/GM made instruments, and gains are terrible. I have Area Peace mapped to spacebar and I run around with it held down. Is there a way to speed this up? O_O

    I can't advise on how best to technically train the skill, but I have been training all my old skills again (don't ask either!). The most painless way is to train 2 or 3 skills at a time so that you are being challenged when fighting.

    For example, I put provoke and music on my fighter and trained mace, provoke and hiding all at the same time. I would guess that this was probably slower than clicking madly for a couple of days but at least I am making money and having fun!

    Even Earth eles can hit hard when your suit is cr*p.

    This is most of your problem. When training, you do NOT want exceptional instruments. You want a pile of store bought instruments.

    From there, it is indeed a ton of time. You could also try going to play with the Satyrs:thumbup1:

    All the stickies say to use GM Instruments until I believe 90ish, then switch to vendor-bought.

    you can use either if your using the area peace instead of targeted.

    gains will be faster with NPC ones as you wont be getting the bonus.
