    If that happens, make sure you report the person's name ASAP so someone can ban him (if he is inside the home macroing).

    I've GM'ed 5 people in Provo at that house with never an issue. I've died on non-Young players at the pens... but you should expect that.

    best of luck! I'll never force a method or style to playing the game on someone :D

    So i tried to Provo the troll and harpy for about an hour. I didn't gain a thing. Do you need to succeed in the provo to gain in it ? also my skill is basically at 0-- musicianship at about 87.

    @Andrakus, the issue is the troll onto harpy is too high for 0 Provocation skill. You first need to buy Provocation from the NPC to 30ish, then start with the lizardman and harpy.

    Message me if you have more questions :)

    Thank you so much for this guide! Simple and to the point. I’m already well on my way to GM in Provo and Music. As someone totally new to UO you have made my first steps much less wobbly and much more fun.

    A while dead but I thought I'd chuck this in...

    I've fiddled the macro a bit to also train Magery/Eval/Resist/Med. In addition to the original requirements you will need, on the main character, a good amount of regs for the spell you're currently casting, on the healer however many bandages they can hold.

    On the main character I am using the following macro:

    Code:
    !Loop
    Assistant.Macros.DoubleClickTypeAction|3763|True
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.5000000
    Assistant.Macros.UseSkillAction|22
    Assistant.Macros.WaitForTargetAction|5
    Assistant.Macros.AbsoluteTargetAction|0|0|220433|3405|2621|55|400
    Assistant.Macros.WaitForTargetAction|5
    Assistant.Macros.AbsoluteTargetAction|0|0|220400|3409|2620|55|401
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.5000000
    Assistant.Macros.IfAction|0|1|50
    Assistant.Macros.IfAction|1|1|30
    Assistant.Macros.MacroCastSpellAction|30
    Assistant.Macros.WaitForTargetAction|30
    Assistant.Macros.HotKeyAction|1059|
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:01
    Assistant.Macros.MacroCastSpellAction|30
    Assistant.Macros.WaitForTargetAction|30
    Assistant.Macros.HotKeyAction|1059|
    Assistant.Macros.ElseAction
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:04
    Assistant.Macros.EndIfAction
    Assistant.Macros.IfAction|4|0|succeeds
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:06
    Assistant.Macros.ElseAction
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:01
    Assistant.Macros.EndIfAction
    
    This will use a lute, attempt the provo, then if there is enough mana and health, cast a spell on itself twice. This might be a bit complex as the timings are as I am using at the moment with Lightning and will need to be adjusted when I move onto EB or whatever you prefer. It all fits within the skill cooldown whether success or fail so no provo time is wasted.

    I'll update with my EB and if it takes that long, FS timers and such, because why not!

    On the healer I just have use bandage, target provo character, pause 5s.

    Pretty cool. One thing I'd point out, sometimes the provocation shacks can be dangerous. If you are casting, passerby's might try to kill you for your regs.

    But if you do this, you can always cast EB but target your spell book. This will complete the spell but not incur any damage. Useful if your Provo-Mage build doesn't include healing or resist and you don;t want to use a healer bot.

    Retwinked a bit your macro :

    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.3000000
    Assistant.Macros.IfAction|100|2|50|22 // if Provo < 50 set your 2 Absolute target on the lizard/ratmen

    Assistant.Macros.EndIfAction
    Assistant.Macros.IfAction|100|2|62|22 if Provo < 62 set your 2 Absolute target on troll/hapie
    Assistant.Macros.AbsoluteTargetAction|0|0|2362759|5939|1418|-256|53

    Assistant.Macros.EndIfAction
    
    That's for Ocllo cavern, lowered the timers so we get the 10sec and 5sec (gaining 1sec), i think on 98% of the connexion here there will be no problem. It'll auto switch targets when you reach your provo levels, just have to set the 3 pairs beforehand

    Code:
    !Loop
    Assistant.Macros.IfAction|100|2|79|22
    Assistant.Macros.DoubleClickTypeAction|3762|True
    Assistant.Macros.ElseAction
    Assistant.Macros.DoubleClickTypeAction|3741|True
    Assistant.Macros.EndIfAction
    Assistant.Macros.HotKeyAction|1044082|
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.3000000
    Assistant.Macros.AbsoluteTargetAction|0|0|2613759|3416|2599|-201|401
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.3000000
    Assistant.Macros.AbsoluteTargetAction|0|0|2613939|3420|2599|-201|400
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:00.3000000
    Assistant.Macros.IfAction|4|0|succeeds
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:09.7000000
    Assistant.Macros.ElseAction
    Assistant.Macros.PauseAction|00:00:04.7000000
    Assistant.Macros.EndIfAction
    
    The second is for the Sailors .... If you are under 79 provo it'll auto use a GM harp (target the GM item you wanna use), else it'll use tamburine from NPC... Lowered the timing too

    Nice @Daping ;)

    As you guessed, I added the .5 sec delays in case of lag. If your or anyone else's connection is consistently better than mine then absolutely this would save you time in the long run.

    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to show how I used this exact guide, but with a small change. If you aren't one of those people who likes to reach out to others about.. well, anything. You can do this exact same guide like this:

    The monsters stop attacking you at the pirate threshhold. Get the door on one side of the cage rooms open. Drag one into it, because they will continue to follow you even though they wont attack you. (Tested ONLY with XX the Pirate, I did not test with any other mobs.) Once it stops aggroing you in the room, use line of sight to grab another pirate from the main room. You may need to get crafty with this. Then stand in the doorway preventing them from getting to each other and begin the macro. As shown.

    Can confirm this method 100%
    Went from 81 Provocation to GM in just under 24 hours. Did not use (Joh the Sailor), just simple named characters to provo onto each other. For those that cannot get into a Provo Training house, this works great!!!! And a shout out to tamer that came in with WW and Dragon killing sailors, and left my 2 aggroed alone.
