The warriors get a dedicated 2011 template thread, so should we!! [Template] [Strategy] 110 Taming 110 Lore 100 Vet 120 Music 120 Disco (or use Soulstone to switch to another bard skill) 100 Magery 60 Meditation --------------- 720 Cap + Jewelry to whatever your heart desires Max Str/Int Minimal Dex I'm using a tamer/bard combo template, but not sold on it yet. I haven't been able to train all my skills up yet, but this is my goal. 110 Taming & Lore seem to be all that is needed for the most useful pets, and I chose to NOT use jewelry on these in the long run. Whenever I die, it's nice to have natural 110 taming/lore to control pets instead of scrambling with jewelry. Use the jewelry on lesser skills that aren't as essential. 100 Vet is all I need since I also heal with Magery. As much meditation is useful since there are some times that you can end up casting quite a bit. I used to run with eval intel and more meditation instead of music/disco... but that's far less effective for many reasons.
