Much Better Diplomacy


One of my easy Academic parleys

Barkscratch : Ding 121.    After a tip from a forum dweller, I realized that I was not getting presence increases because my two soldier parleys were outside of Cail Brael proper.     No lever movement, and no presence XP.

(Does anyone else find this the most irritating town name in the world ?    Ca’ial Brael is apparently the correct spelling, but I can’t remember it for the life of me.    Unmemorable is the mark of a bad name.)

It was suggested that I go inside of Ca’ial Brael to do parleys.     I’m very glad I did.    I found a place named the Hall of Glyphs, with many NPC’s inside – and four of them vulnerable to the Elf Deck noted on the diplomacy deck page.     Two were a nice 150 skill.

It looks like the way to do diplomacy is, in fact, to go after higher skill opponents.    One caveat first, though, is to leave your own starter area and travel to a different city.     One whose denizens are strong on another type of expression, which you can then block – ie, I’m blocking the green parleys which is the key to success for me.   Apparently the citizens of your area are well defended against your primary parley skill (Demand in my case), but not so with other races.

My 150 skill opponents gave me nice skillups, and the other two kept me busy until the 150’s refreshed.     And gave presence XP besides.     Ran the circuit many times before logging for the night.
