Description

Playing Instrument.png Poetry and songs are a river of knowledge and wisdom that have been passed down through generations. Every note from an instrument that plays beautiful music is a complete language in itself. Learn this skill if you want to understand the basics of speaking in this language. This skill allows you to play tunes that have captivated many ears and hearts with the melody of an instrument. This is not simply about learning a musical technique, this skill will also reward you with more sentimental and magic-like effects.

Details

  • Allows the player to play music using an Instrument while passively increases the effects of Music Skills.
  • Playing music for Homestead crops decreases the crop timer by a percentage of the total time required.
    • Requires Rank F or higher Playing Instrument.
    • You can only play for crops in your own Homestead.
    • Music that are considered too easy to play or are bad results will not decrease the crop timer.
      • If the attempt fails, you may keep playing until it succeeds, but it may only be decreased once.
    • Does not stack with Song's crop timer decrease.
  • At Rank 9 and beyond, the player can begin performing Magical Music with magical Score Scrolls.
  • At Rank 5 and beyond, the player can begin performing Special Magical Music with magical Score Scrolls.
    • Magical Music's effects only trigger through this skill.
  • The player will be stationary while performing.
  • If there is no Score Scroll equipped, the music played will be a default tune.
  • The success rate is dependent on the skill's rank and rank of the song or scroll being played.
    • Imbolic (Sunday) increases success rate.
  • After an uninterrupted performance, a message will display to indicate the level of success:
    • Get a very good result.
      • Your song came from the heavens!
      • That was a perfect song
    • Use the skill successfully.
      • You gave a great performance
      • The performance was quite alright
      • Not a bad performance
      • I'm slowly gaining confidence in playing instruments.
    • Fail at using the skill.
      • Lots of mistakes, although most didn't notice
      • An embarrassing performance
      • The song is still too difficult for me.
      • You'll need to practice hard to master this song.
    • Get a horrible result.
      • A disastrous performance
      • That was a total mess...
      • That was a difficult song for me to play.
  • When playing a "very good result", players will perform a unique animation; players with string instruments wildly strums their instrument similar to an electric guitar, while players with wind instruments wildly flail around while playing the flute, players with percussion instruments will angrily strike their drums, and players with Pianos will mash on the keys erratically.
  • Great successes are obtained randomly. The chance of getting a great success appears when you are playing a default song scroll with a difficulty at least one rank higher than your Playing Instrument rank.
  • Every default song has a preset rank. At Rank 1, there are only six default songs that can possibly give great successes.
  • Can be used during Windmill's animation.
  • Being attacked will interrupt playing.
  • Enabling Repeat Playing Instrument causes the skill to automatically repeat itself once the song ends.
  • Performance Options filters out music from other players.
  • Playing Instrument is an option to learning the following skills:
    • Rank Novice is required to obtain the quest for learning Lullaby and Enduring Melody; Rank F is required to complete one of the quest's objectives.
    • Rank D is a quest objective for learning Battlefield Overture.
    • Rank A is a quest objective for learning Harvest Song.
    • Rank 5 of Playing Instrument and Song provides a quest for learning Fantastic Chorus.
    • Rank 4 is a quest objective for learning Vivace.
    • Rank 1 is a quest objective for learning March Song.
    • Encore is randomly learned after uninterrupted plays.

  1. Playing Instrument does not add to Skill Combat Power.

Obtaining the Skill

  • Learned automatically upon equipping any Instrument.

Training Method

  • Lullaby counts as "Use a music buff skill.", despite technically not being one.
  • Assault Slash is not a valid method for "Equip an instrument and attack an enemy."

Tips

  • For "Equip an instrument and attack an enemy." go to Provocation and auto attack the Barrier Spikes. Though it costs Stamina, at higher ranks it is a much more efficient way to train other than playing on blank scrolls.
    • A broken instrument will still train the requirement.
    • Having high enough ranked Enduring Melody, will help with stamina regeneration while attempting this method.
    • When attempting this method it is ideal to activate the Auto Combat setting.
      • This setting is also able to have a hotkey assigned to it in the hotkey menu.
  • An easy way to train using the skill is to make a blank Score Scroll that plays silently.
    • Take note of your Musical Knowledge rank before doing so. It cannot be two ranks or more below your Playing Instrument rank, otherwise no training proficiency is gained.
      • Alternatively, you could ask someone with a higher rank Musical Knowledge, so long it is one rank under your Playing Instrument rank or higher.
    • Doing this method will also take less time than playing default songs, which will save your Stamina.
  • By using other Music Skills (excluding Enthralling Performance), one may speed up the process for ranking this skill.
