Enable/disable confusion running 2 bard mastery buffs

ForeverFunForeverFun Posts: 517
If you run both Invigorate and Inspire (provocation masteries) at the same time, disabling one of the buffs causes both running buffs to be disabled.

However, to re-enable one of the buffs, you have to case it twice.  The server appears to get confused about the state of the running bard buffs.

Expected result: 1) disabling one buff only disables one buff, OR, 2) the server marks both as disabled without having to cast twice to re-enable a buff.

I haven't checked whether this applies to the other bard masteries buffs for peacemaking and discord.

    This has randomly happened for years something trying to start one starts them both or ending one ends both as far as bard issues go low priority for me 
    Acknowledgment and accountability go a long way...

    This reproduces 100% of the time :
    1. login, confirm no bard buffs running.
    2. start invigorate bard buff
    3. start inspire bard buff
    4. stop inspire bard buff
    5. note bard buffs both stop (unexpected)
    6. start invigorate bard buff
    7. note bard buff doesn't start (unexpected)
    8. start invigorate bard buff
    9. note bard buff starts

    Is that a bug or an exploit
    What I posted was from
    https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-wiki/skills/bardic-skills/bard-masteries/
    and nowhere does it say that both can be run.
    @Mariah @Rorschach @Mesanna @Kyronix @Bleak @Misk
    could you confirm that it is ok to run both at the same time

    You obviously have never played a bard  why are you replying other than your dislike of me?

    You kids are slow so i will clarify. There are three bard masteries disco,provo and peace each has 2 spells. We all on same page ??? Ok now you can only run one mastery but you can run both spells at same time IE insipre and invigorate. Ok everyone still with me????? Now the BUG is as follows sometimes turning one on or off turns the other off or on at the same times this is not working as intended are we clear now ?

    It seems there are gaps in understanding how "skill masteries" work.

    AFAIK, as long as you have sufficient mana, each selected skill mastery "group" allows you to have any number of the selections running at the same time.  e.g. combat training and whispering from the taming mastery (combined with the passive stable slot increase)..

    The two examples I covered in this bug report are both from the provocation mastery.

    It may be helpful to move away from a constant "exploit" mindset.

    This is from the link you added
    "Bards with either provocation or peacemaking mastery can have both their mastery spell songs active at the same time."

    Yup I think this is new. I cant run both buff in a party because I run out of mana so I turn off Invigorate to regen Mana.  In the past I have turned off invigorate and inspire stays on.

    When I do them in the above order, I can not turn off Inspire without both turning off.

    But if I turn on Inspire first and then Invigorate, I can turn off Invigorate and Inspire stays on.

    But I can repeat your order over and over with the same results as you posted, which are not correct.

    There is a misunderstanding here. You may only have one ability in effect, but you can have both spells OF that ability running. The 3 bard abilities being Provocation, Peacemaking or Discord.
