    I could not find this information where I looked.

    Does anyone know what the cut off timer is for Provocation Line of Sight ?

    Instant ? A few seconds (how many) ?

    That is, if a Bard succesfully provokes 2 targets against each other and then leaves or hides, will the provoke effect end immediately (NPCs will stop fighting each other) ? After a few seconds (how many) ?

    No, the fight will continue until either one of them dies. One may try to walk off if it becomes too injured, but the fight will continue if the provoker leaves the screen.

    i know from when we where doing the turkeys i was able to run off screen to fetch more turkeys and the pack of turkeys i had provo'd where still fighting.

    not sure about the invis thing though.

    should be easy enough to test though.

    Any damage that's caused by the provokes to each other such as spells or a bleed attack can possibly keep them fighting regardless of whether the bard is in the line of sight or not.

    Creatures that don't have magic or special attacks will fight exactly as long as LG said: 11 seconds.
