The Provocation skill allows a player to make two creatures fight each other. It's a bard skill that must be used with Musicianship and it's arguable one of the best Player vs Monster skills and has little investment. It goes well with Animal Taming, Warriors and even Magery.


Activate the skill and you may be prompted to select an instrument on first use, instruments are not automatically selected so you have to set your instrument once the first time. You will be presented with a target reticle, select the creature followed by selecting a second creature within range. If successful, the creature will begin attacking it's target. You may attack the creatures and the Provocation will not be interrupted unless you've left their range.


The range of all bard skills is 8 tiles, each 15 points in the skill increases the range by a single tile. Bards have to be within the range of the target to use the ability on it or it will fail. Bards must remain within their range or the effects of the skill will wear off.
