    Fellow bards - please go out and test your discordance across water and tell me it's just me!

    I only get "That is too far away" ...

    [EDIT]It seems to be the same also on islands, on ships - no matter how close you are - tested on 3 different shards yet - Europa, Atlantic & Drachenfels[/EDIT]

    They put Discord in PvP. So it needs a path to the target.

    I think this is the first time a PvP change affects PvM.

    Glad my Disco dog is trained as high as I can endure.

    The OP is either a Tamer or he uses the same places as tamers do.

    this was screwed up on Origin too.
    i would be on a boat doing the Trade Quests and id get a ambush spawn.
    id be able to disco the water ele's but i could not disco the Krakens or the deep sea monsters.
    even if i placed the boat directly on top of them and had the loading ramps out and was standing on the ramps directly on top of the back of the beasts and i could literally HIT them with my boomstick i could not see them to hit them with disco.

    so yeaaaaa, im so happy they put in a worthless change to Disco and wrecked the normal disco in the process!
    happy happy joy joy!

    guess ill just go play with a SW or Sampire or something for the next year or so until they accidentally fix it.
    more likely they will fix something else and accidentally fix this new disco problem.
    its kinda funny.
    funny - sad not funny - haha.

    Mind you, it wasn't a Pvper asking for Discord to work in pvp even on the official forums none of the pvpers (I know to be pvpers) wanted it either.

    devs trying to make Pvm skills useful in a pvp scenario perfect example of what not to do. - great skill gains though =D (for now)

    Bards don't belong in pvp, If you want to pvp on a bard, get good with magery. That'll be enough.. it is for everyone else.

    In some cases, I don't think its how many times something is asked for, but who asks for it...

    I don't want to create a user account "over there" ... so I was hoping somebody else, who has one, could probably link to my post #1 ...

    Yes indeed Puwoin ... you should remember me from the tamer's forum ... and yes ... first pic shows my full bard on Drachenfels - where I also have a tamer and the 2nd pic shows my disco bard tamer on Atlantic ...

    And here's my 3rd "gimplate" tamer on Europa, training a drake with Khaldun AL's who got released down in Shame while the event was still ongoing ...

    Yes indeed - they enabled discord on other players ... the bard now also aggro's every target he / she has successfully discorded - even own pets but your 2nd sentence is utter BS!

    This needs be fixed IMNSHO!

    Reality is realty, as much as we don't like to call it.
    Yep, this needs to change, as it affects PVM in a bad or 'different than so far' way, unless it is meant to be this way, by the devs.
    **Uttermost nonsense?** Can you elaborate why that comment was nonsense?
    @Pawain was spot on, and he called it for what it was : An add to the PVP armory, that changes both PVP and PVM, and it affects PVM negatively.
    There are hundreds of PVM players that use barding and essentially zero PVP/PK variety players that have used it SO FAR. But NOW we just added it to PVP, we must make it work for PVP, so for everyone else that does not "PVP" : Too bad! Take it or leave it.
    @Pawain had the b***s to call it. Most of us agree that this barding change F***NG Sucks!
    This is a downgrade to barding overall, and decreases its range of use in the large number of players that use it. Unless they go back on it and change it.

    It's the age of the Disco-melee. It's super annoying.

    "out of range" "to far away" & is 3 steps away over a small group of rocks or stream/river, what bs, great job of screwing with disco for the non-pvp community. Idiot move dev's

    No no culticus, the cuddly bear is often spot on but not with this 2nd sentence ... and it has also nothing to do with his bulls! It might have been sarcasm as another one had pointed out above but for me - it's BS and NOT **uttermost nonsense** - if you quote my posts, do NOT twiddle my words around like that (!) - "it" does NOT need a path to the target - "it" needs be fixed! Is that elaborated enough? Please don't answer ... it was meant as a "rhetorical question"!

    "We" don't need "fanboys" in here, who just increase their own post count with such posts!

    @Gnoopey

    Yes I was being sarcastic. I have complained more about PvP affecting PvM than anyone else.
    Just felt redundant doing it again. And wanted to see if anyone noticed. :)

    Im sorry, but I think they added path to Discord. You can prove or disprove if you like:
    Surround yourBard with bagballs and try to discord something outside of the bagball prison.
    If you can not discord it is because there is not valid path.
    If you can, it is something else.

    At least we will know what changed. And I doubt they will go back.

    Yep we all agree here. There are many PVP changes that have affected PVM negatively. I would like to see how a PVP character can squeeze music and disco on and still be able to hold his/her salt in PVP with a template crammed up with mixed/matched skills as usually.
    This ends Disco pet training for lots of people. Price of Disco 120 pets will probably skyrocket...

    I tried to Discord a WW that was 4 tiles from me but he was "flying" so wasn't able to. Sorry but this change is total crap.
