Hello there..It's been a while but I trust the readers of this board can give me some good advice. Once again I am an RP-PVP'er. What this means is: I make myself as pvpable as possible only a character is going to be doing something in particular in role play and thus has certain requirements. In this case..I am looking to create a mage with a tokuno feel that is as pvpable as possible..having at least ninjitsu or bushido some where on the template. My original idea was: Mage med eval resist ninja hide stelath Use a mage weapon pop mirrors animal form to get away posion stars for fun and the usual mage thing and rp goodness as a ninja Now my questions are.. 1) How will this fare? 2) Is it worth even trying to death strike? 3) Should I be trying to use a different sort of defense *wrestling, bushido with a weap, etc * instead? 4) If I went bushido.. how viable is the NS mage these days in comparison? 5) What sort of alternatives to this template, having at least some bushido or some ninja, might help me accomplish some of my goals here? Any and all advice is welcome! thanks in advance.
