Why 120 Disco?

uoguide says target loses 10% at 50 skill and 20% at 100 skill...no mention of any additional loss at 120. Any information differ from that or am I wasting 20 skill points and time? I can disco a cu (for training purposes) at 100...if no additional % is granted I'd be done. So more of a curiosity (and hope I can stop training) than anything.

@ 120 discord I drop my pet from 120 skill to 86.4, a drop of 33.6. Haven't really looked at wild beasts, but I assume it's the same.

Not that a tamer would use disco masteries, but it also helps with those. Or if you use provo/peace masteries to buff your pet when not using consume damage, those also draw a little extra oomph from any bard skills at 120. if you feel you don't need the 8% or additional benefits, don't worry about it. But if training the skill is your biggest deterrent, keep in mind discord trains much more smoothly by toggling the masteries on/off and targeting yourself.

Melee tamer seems pretty cool, something I've always wanted to try. I bet onslaught would do a lot of good stacking damage with the right elemental pet...

ooh and I bumped my music down to gm (99, tbh) to train all my bard skills with masteries. It is slow AF, and I couldn't prove it helped, but at least I felt like I may have been making the best possible use of the time it was taking.

i use a disco cu (ive posted initial thoughts of the temp in warrior forum). I've been toying with the idea of a reptalon with area effect for spawning purposes.

Lol I was just thinking too bad you can't bring the disco toon along with the onslaught. I recall seeing the post now, sounds pretty badass!

Use chiv to heal pets? That's a lot of +skill stuff to find! Hehe how's the overall dps? Better than straight sampire?

its about avg to wat my previous samp did...~200 per hit on dbl strike with onslaught (400 total). but the cu adds a bit more dmg with its AIs. so dps isn't much greater overall but it was a nice differ from the samp norm

far as healing...I tank the boss then sick pet on it...so it has 20hpr and 120 healing but the focus is on me
