    I've been training disco on pixies at 59-60 skill and the gains are awesome. My crystal ball of skill training says they're "Challenging" and "Very Challenging", but im getting really good gains on them. I'm at Illshenar - Spirituality, and the Blighted Grove - both places are safe for positive karma characters. Nice relaxing training.

    Just a quick FYI for you guys.

    At 68.5 skill, the pixies become "Challenging" and "Optimal".

    How long did it take you to go from 59-60 to 68.5? How does that compare to other ways you have trained it?

    It took about 3-4 hours to go from 59-60 to 68.5 (spread out over several days that is). It worked better this way than the other way I did it on my tamer; the other way being polar bears. This was faster.

    Masteries are very good for groups and also for a tamer since they can significantly buff a party or pets.
    There are also masteries which affects the targets.

    Masteries are very much mana using so the Bard should have a suit that helps the keep up of mana as much a needed for the mastries used......
