Looks Good UOMaddog interesting training method using the Bard Masteries. I wonder how long it takes compared to other methods. Seems hassle free that's for sure.

At 60 skill I'll slap on 2 +15 Discordance rings.

I've been meaning to make another discorder. I'll post results when I do. :)

This has amazing potential.  I hope they don't need it as a method.

Will the other Bard Masteries work? Provocation and Peacemaking?

Not that Peacemaking is all too difficult...

However Discordance and Provocation can't be a pain in the neck.

Yes it does work for the other skills (just need to cast a different spell). You should also be able to train up Musicianship as well. I realized that I forgot to put in a skill check to stop the script, so I will update it and possibly add in a menu for the other skills as well. Now that I'm done with school (only a wedding to plan) I have a bit more free time to do stuff like this!

Has anyone tested it using jewelry?  I don't believe you can get the spell to train with until you have real skill of 90.
This coin declares Caesar is "Dictator for Life." He did serve as Dictator for the remainder of his life, but his life would end only a few weeks after this issue. For Caesar to put his image on coins and essentially declare himself king was too much for Brutus and his republican allies.

Correct. You do need real skill.

I wanted to give this a good testing, so I wrote a quick script to train up to 90.  I used Grizzley Bears and Unicorns, ten of each.  It took about eight hours or perhaps less. I didn't watch it, but only needed to run it once.  The skill progressions need to account for music over 100, but I have not done the legwork to figure that out. 

Now that my toon is up to 90 discord, I will get the quest and give your script a run.

I have been running this from 90 and after ten hours I am at 102.5.  Its not a great test if only because I already have 120 music on the toon.  I have kept a ball of knowledge on for all of it and have gotten the "too easy" message the entire time. This usually means you won't gain, but it hasn't kept me from gaining thus far.  I will update when I hit 120 or stop gaining.

*EDIT* I meant that I have 120 music, so the skill curve is probably not as favorable as it could be.  I have enough mana regen to get me back to 100% before it recasts, so I am going as fast as the script will go without stopping for mana.

Up to 105 in just under 14 hours.

I've done this on a few chars using UOA and UO-Loop.  I suspect the script is similar and it will 120 you in any bard skill.  It takes about the same time as just working it normally but is much safer and can be done anywhere you want.
Nope!  I'm doing what all the real PvPers do:  Scripting everything except the running away part!  I'm real good at that already...

So I have completed training Disco to 120.  From 105 it slowed down quite a bit, but it made it.  I am guessing that it took something around 25 hours to go from 105 to 120.  I suspect that it would have been a great deal quicker if I did not have 120 music.

Script is definitely a lot safer to use than the method I was using, which was to tame a bunch of animals and keep them trapped while I worked it, or the work on the meers.  Although it is slow, it is not so much slower either.  Because of the added security of being able to train pretty much anywhere safely, this is going to be my preferred method.

I saw no bugs during the run, script ran like a champ.  

It doesn't seem to have a check to stop at your skill cap, or a check for when you have run out of instruments.  Both might be nice to add.

I threw it together quite hastily to train mine up (and I was watching it the whole time). I thought I put a skill check in, but I may not have, I may have done it incorrectly, or I may have not uploaded the version. I'll take a look when I get a chance!
