As a matter of fact I have not, and as i have checked my gear give me just +10 (with song +20) to it maxing out at 65 atm. that wont do. I look into that and see if i can pock around the skillpoints a little more and get it to decent levels as well. Thx for the tip.
You can trade your points in taunt for persuade. You can only use one of the two at a time anyways.
