    With imbuing and the forge tool, the de facto skill cap is much higher than 720. I would argue that templates with 820 should be viewed as easily obtainable. Further these builds are generally hybrid builds that are casters and melee/archer/throwers, hence this topic would be at home in both the warrior and spellcaster forums.

    This is how I play UO, I try to figure out interesting ways to combine skills to maximize effectiveness and enjoyment of a particular character. I am inherently lazy so relying on consumables lowers the enjoyment value of a build for me. This means I don't use skills that require reagents without 100% LRC and only carry a couple potions. My main character has always been a dexxer, I never played a mage until I discovered mageweapons.

    Lynk showed me the light on what is possible by suggesting a build that was my main character plus bushido, for a total of 865 skill points.

    120 Swords
    90 Tactics
    115 Bushido (thanks Lynk!)
    120 Ninjitsu
    80 Stealth
    100 Hiding
    120 Mysticism
    120 Focus

    865 Total Skill. Mage Stats. I've toyed with the idea of changing this build from human to gargoyle and replacing swords with throwing.

    Another template that I created is a mage dexxer, using a mage weapon to attack as often as magery spells
    120 Magery (+20 skill for 1-handed mage weapon)
    120 Eval
    100 Med
    100 Anatomy (instead of tactics for a melee damage bonus plus defensive wrestle when holding a spellbook or disarmed)
    80 Poisoning (DP fields, poison resist)
    120 Bushido
    120 Parry
    50 Weapon Skill (same as mage weapon)

    830 Total Skill. Hybrid Stats (i.e. 80 Dex)

    Similar to that build though decidedly more of a spell caster is:
    120 Magery (+20 skill for 1-handed mage weapon)
    120 Eval
    60 Med
    80 Poisoning (DP fields)
    120 Resisting Spells
    120 Spellweaving
    60 Necromancy (wraith form)
    100 Spirit Speak
    80 Parry

    880 Total skill. Admittedly I haven't finished this template so I may end up lowering parry and/or spellweaving by 20. Resist can be lowered or eliminated for PvM.

    What are some high skill templates that you have created or are interested in trying?

    Fun Tip: Imbuing a hit area spell on a weapon with the whirlwind special is a great way for mystic dexxers to kill off lots of low level spawn, especially when combined with enchant weapon for that 60% hit spell.

  4. I'm curious about this build - is it primarily for PVP or PVM?
    What are your stats for HP/Stamina/Mana, HCI,DCI and Mana Regen?
    How do you build a suit for this?

    My template is only 815 but here it is:

    120 Throwing
    120 Mystic
    100 Tactics
    100 Focus
    100 Cartography
    100 Mining
    100 Lockpicking
    75 Chiv

    I mostly use this char to solo 1-7 Tmaps. As I am digging the chest I summon an RC and cast mass sleep then use the right slayer soul glaive to kill the rest of the mob.

    Both, though in general any build with ninjitsu is designed toward PvP. I don't do a ton of PvP atm, but would like to do more in the near future with this build. That said, I primarily PvM with some guild dueling. I am not a PvP expert and defer to Lynk's posts on this build in the warrior forum.

    The arties I use are: Armor of Fortune, corgul sash, shadow dancer leggings, Captain John's Hat, ranger cloak of augmentation, mana phasing orb, tangle, cloak of silence (robe)

    My stats are approximately: 110/25/110. HCI & DCI are 45%/35% respectively. My mana regen is 10. 100% LRC and 31% LMC. 35% SSI. A PvP oriented suit would replace LRC with HP and Mana increase. I use the armor of fortune, but this isn't the best for a PvP.

    HCI: 15 hat, 10 ring, 5 tali, 15 weapon
    DCI: 5 apron, 5 sash, 15 chest, 10ish bracelet, 1 cloak

    I started by planning my ideal suit by looking at how to fit the required skill. Captain John's Hat with +20 swords and 15% HCI is nice, but the Dread Pirate Hat is an alternative with 10 fewer skill points, a couple resist, and 5% less HCI. I use a mana phasing orb with 6% LMC, 10% LRC, 5% HCI, and 1 MR. I use a cloak of silence for +10 stealth and shadow dancer leggings for +20 stealth.

    I used a forge tool to make optimal resist imbued gorget, arms, and gloves. I have 75 in each resist in stone form, so roughly 65 without.

    My jewelery has either DCI or HCI and +skill. It is possible to make a better suit for this build that uses less +skill on the jewelery. There is a +20 stealth cloak and the +10 focus obi that could be used in place of my ranger cloak of augmentation and tangle. I could then drop the shadow dancer leggings.

    I use JoaT spellweaving for gift of renewal and attunement. With the poisoning change, I may not be able to use deadly poison with my fukiya darts. I haven't tested this more extensively yet, other than to notice that I didn't seem to inflict DP one time.

    i have a few chars that go 770-800 skills that arent much to write home about. However my biggest skill bonus char is this: I think these are how i have the skills laid out:

    120 disco 30 on jewels 10 on mark of travesty
    120 music 10 from mark of travesty
    120 magery 110 real 10 on book
    100 hiding 100 real
    100 stealth 20 on jewels 10 on cloak 20 on cape
    100 ninja 30 on jewels
    100 tracking 100 real
    100 detect hidden 100 real


    I use him as my protector at spawns, that also discos. I also use him as my scout to scout out spawns in fel. The tracking/detect were just a bonus for finding thieves/stealthers at spawns and snuffing them out.

    Who needs to recall anyway? That's what you make recall scrolls for crazy!

    We'll start with one of my lower characters and work my way up:

    Gamlin: Melee Treasure Hunter (can do level 6s solo, but the AW tend to take a while)
    803 (813 while digging) points (real skill in Parentheses if different from displayed)
    120 (100) Swords)
    103 (87) Parry
    100 LP or Cart (depending if I'm decoding maps, or actually on a trip)
    100 Anatomy
    100 (90) Tactics
    90 mining (+10 when actually digging, from Jacob's pickaxe, though usually once I spot the location I interrupt the dig, move closer, switch to sword, and resume digging)
    90 Healing
    90 (60) Chivalry

    Gigile: old-school (AoS, no Bushido) Necro-Warrior
    807 Skill in a COMPLETELY NON-IMBUED Bone Armor suit (just runics, looted jewels, midnight bracers and a minor artifact talisman)

    120 (80) Necro
    120 (98) SS
    115 Swords
    100 Anatomy
    100 Tactics
    100 (86) Parry
    90 (79) Healing
    62 Chivalry

    I could probably Tweak him a lot if I changed suits, but I LIKE my bone armor suit with blood red accessories, and have no intent of covering it up with a robe (or replacing the AoS kilt with an apron).

    Basara: Bard/Tamer
    826 points

    Finished template will be
    120 Vet
    120 Provo
    120 (110) Music
    120 (105) Disco or Peace (soulstone swap, have bracelets made identical except for the one skill)
    120 (102) Taming
    120 (102) Animal Lore
    106 (61) Magery

    Currently still working on the Provo, and still have some of the peace training to do (with all the extra points piled into magery until then)

    106.7 Sword
    86.3 Tactics
    95 Chiv
    100 Resist


    868 Total


    Read up on the firehorn (area 81-100 damage 3 spaces PVM) and combined with Holy Light and spin area effect weapon. Clears low level spawn fast.

    With a 100% Fire Hally Dragon slayer Pally powered discord. Redlines or kills a WW in one hit (over 100 damage from firehorn alone). Dances with the Bedlam undead all day with packhorse in the healer shop for safe unloading.

    Used to solo champs till the Tactics nerf. Imbuing has made it possible to regain weapon specials.
     
  14. Ya, I agree with you... putting this together on paper, don't see this working as well as I thought at first. However, my swords/lumberjack/imbuer is kinda boring human and this might spice it up a bit.

    I am unsure if I can alter the clothing +skill items used in my build for a gargoyle. I only have 1 of most items and am unwilling to test. I can alter a crimson, so it would stand to reason that a cloak (robe) of silence, +10 focus obi, +20 stealth cloak could be altered. Those items would get me close, though not quite to 865. I would probably accept less bushido in a gargoyle build. Captain John's Hat or the Dread Pirate Hat are really necessary for this build, no way around it.

    Also, I think a garg would need to go with significantly higher stamina than a human or elf build

    Oh I am an idiot. I can do a character copy with Willard holding a race change token.

    Edit: The Results

    Bad news, only the +20 stealth replica cloak and corgul sash were able to be altered.
    Armor of Fortune - No, didn't expect it to
    Shadow Dancer Leggings - No, didn't expect it to
    Cloak of Silence - No
    Obi replica w/ +10 focus - No

    Oh well. I guess making a garg with that template is not possible.

    If anyone of you people ever came to Siege P. you'd be totally lost.

    Your all most likely the same ones that think your good PvM or PvP'ers.

    Drop all the insured garbage and I'm betting you drop just as easily to a monster OR a player.

    This type of thread justifys a pixel hospital handing out pixel crutches.

    Most likely the same players have never been in a setting where you have GM plain armor and no jewels, tallys, or arti's. Try fighting fair fights with just PLAIN GM armor, weapons, or regs. I'm aware that all your macro's might require retiming, but the hospital is handing out macro crutches too.

    Loading up on skill isn't unbalancing because ultimately there are tradeoffs; fewer HP/mana/stam, less DCI, lower mana regen, zero enhance potions. Skill on imbued items has a 1.4 multiplier, the highest. I don't think any of the templates presented so far are grossly overpowered, just more flexible.

    My ninja template requires scrolls to move around and can't res. Stats start to become limiting in these hybrid templates. I cannot use weapons slower than 2.5 second swing speed and still be effective due to my low dex. I don't have room on my suit to increase dex and stam. I can only cast one spell at a time regardless of how many are in my spellbooks.

    I was waiting for this type of post, shocked it took so long to get here.
    How about some of us who were around before all the new items, who did play just fine without these so-called crutches... I assure you there are plenty of us fully capable of handling ourselves with GM gear. Of course you do realize that artis, Legendary skilled crafters, etc on Siege, yes? Of course you do... You play with just GM crafted items? Awesome, here is a cookie...

    Go generalize your drivel somewhere else... I hear there is an opening under the bridge...

    Disclaimer: If this is deemed as a personal attack, it isn't meant to me, just a clear, justifiable response to the people who were actually trying to hold a reasonable troll-free conversation.

    Apologies I didn't realize it was Guardian KX Online. I cannot deviate from the only Guardian KX approved method of play. To deviate from Guardian KX's approved playstyle somehow indicates that I am less of a player.

    Thank you for your enlightening post. I will immediately cease spending my leisure time playing a game in a manner that I enjoy and will start spending my leisure time playing a game in the manner you approve.

    Np, the apology was noted.

    The topic was "Share your creativity". The idea of not being insured and arti'd out was such a SHOCK to you and at least one other poster that all I read was panicked crying.:sad3:

    Based on your responce you don't approve of even fights and uninhanced fighting styles. Due'ly noted. Some people cannot fathom the depth of normal fight styles. Some people won't even log-in if UOA (and "other") programs aren't working. Stopping to 2 click a pot in a fight is something they just never learned to do.:stretcher:

    Guess you have to ask yourself a few questions:

    Have you ever worked a skill too GM without macroing it, letting you watch the screen for hours while some program did all the work?

    Does the 820 point skill template require multible macros where everything must be done at a push of a button or its almost impossible to run?

    Does losing 1 piece of uninsured armor or jewelery require the user to stop using the template or immediatly replace it, otherwize the templates garbage?

    Anyone that runs these templates please post if you use "Payed or Not out of normal ingame means" helping macro's. Guessing you "might" see one other person that won't pay for more programs and views all the extras as unneeded. The more programs you run adds more power to your winning a fight as the ultimate goal. To you its about the WIN, not the way you won it.

    Your totally right Guardian KX people actually operating within the rules of the game doing nothing illegal and a program that the Dev's themselves have said is fine (and they liked so much that they added in many of the features for the enhanced client) are the ones with the problem. Far be it from us to experiment and do anything using our minds to try and come up with new ways of doing things and achieving anything. Here is what I say if you don't like insurance the devs have given you a shard without it. Feel free to play it there are a lot of nice people there. As for saying that all the production shards should do away with it... why do you feel the need to attack the bulb of the players style of play?? There is no need for you to imitate it, so what is the reason that it bothers you so?

    You must need me to validate your playstyle Guardian KX. Otherwise why post? And then post again? Applause. Good job. You have mastered the siege ruleset in such as manner as it gives you enjoyment. So much enjoyment that you feel the need to spread it around.

    You seem hung up on macros though. I don't use them. I don't use UOAssist nor do I use the EC client. I click the button and target for everything except hiding, and primary and secondary weapon specials. Not sure where that tangent fits.

    It may surprise you but one of my three noncrafting/nonrandom skill collecting characters is a stealth herder that wears crappy orc loot level armor. He only insures his NPC bought shepherd's crook.

    I played before AoS and enjoyed UO, I played after AoS and enjoyed UO. Sorry, I like the game and pay to help keep the lights on at bioware.

    I also like to play around thinking up stupidly skill heavy templates.

    This is what I do. This *points up* is why I pay $10/month.

    Edit: FYI... I was siege curious and have a char on the shard. A stealth herder. Is everyone there so delightful? I might want to rethink with whom I associate.

    Most of the folks on Siege are very nice. In fact some of them are so great I wish I could lure them away. But on any shard there is that percentage.

    No - because most of the templates I've seen here are using a book in hand for +15 casting skill, which precludes mage weapons.

    Only the OP's PvP templates use mage weapons, while the thread has primarily been PvM templates (and SP flamebaiters) after that.

    Indeed, and the most ironic part is the player who came here spouting about how people would be lost without wearing millions in artys/imbued pieces uses more artys/imbued pieces than anyone else on the shard, and brags about it left and right...to the point of annoyance to the rest of us.

    That said, back to the actual point of this thread. You're mostly going to find that the high skill points is mostly useful in pvm, and it's mostly a mage/bard tamer thing, for a dexxer i'd take a 720 skill template with maxxed out stats over an extra skill. (it's much nicer with 190 stam and 150 hp/125 str)

    Guardian KX... save the heroics... seriously.

    I ran around bucs den back when pvp consisted of deathrobes, a kryss or spear, and a bag of regs and bandaids. I remember keeping packs set up with gm weapons, pots, and gear.
    I had chests of vang weapons as trophy's.

    None of this was on siege, none of this was done by macroing. I didnt create the game, artifacts, or item insurance. Some of us with houses and established characters well before siege was created, didn't feel the need to move shards.

    So use your GM weapons and armor and enjoy it. I assure you sir, you are no better at pvp than a production shard player. This discussion was just fine without you.

    So i guess you are one of those not so good pvp'ers or pvm? If you were really good you would throw on those uninsured arties and own the shard. Since you do not do this, I must assume you are not as good as you want everyone to believe and therfore do not want to lose your items.

    What good is it to go out and get items or craft them if you wont use them?

    Since I have insomnia and I was writing this down the other day, I thought I would share it.

    Bloodwood spirit +5 Necromancy +10 spirit speak
    Midnight Bracers +20 Necromancy
    Mark of the Travesty +10 Eval +10 Magery
    Bracelet +13 magery +13 spirit speak +13 eval
    Crystalline Ring +20 Magery +20 Focus
    Royal Investigator Cloak +20 Stealth
    Shadow Dancer Leggings +20 Stealing +20 Stealth
    Book +10 Magery +10 Eval +10 Meditation

    Necromancy 25
    Spirit Speak 23
    Evaluate Intelligence 33
    Magery 53
    Focus 20
    Stealth 40
    Stealing 20
    Meditation 10

    720 + 224 = 944

    120 Necromancy
    120 Spirit Speak
    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    120 Stealth
    120 Stealing
    104 Meditation
    100 Hiding
    20 Focus

    Chest imbued (or AoF)
    Hand imbued
    Neck imbued
    Shield (Light's Rampart)
    Sash Lt Sash
    Waist Tangle
    Bracelet (13 magery, 13 ss, 13 eval, 8 LMC, 4 LRC- I think)

    Hitting all 70's is easy enough, resist before imbuing are 52/17/31/43/40.

    Just off the top of my head, it looks like the overall LRC is about 60%, LMC 32%, MR 8, MI 11, +15 Int, 8 HPR, 30 SDI, no HCI and looking at ~30-35% DCI. Depending on bracelet imbue.

    Could use the Armor of Fortune to help the LRC and DCI, but that would leave you about 24 LMC, but put you at like 85-95 LRC. And you should be able to still hit all 70s and about 65'ish in Fire.

    Yep, that is the build except I actually went 75 stealth and 120 bushido for better nerve damage.

    It is purely PvP, and even within PvP it is a quick assassin type build. I regularly take people from full to dead if the RNG is in my favor. Enough mana for a really good dump, animal form, and a smoke bomb.

    Completely useless for any open field fight where the fight is prolonged.

    Completely useless against an opponent who is ready and waiting for you.

    It requires a pretty hefty investment in items for relatively low payout in practical use, but it is pretty fun.

    Cast HailStorm
    Invis pot while Casting
    Stealths up to Target
    Targets Hailstorm
    Nerve Strikes them
    DS Them
    Possibly Conflag pot in there...
    Spell Trigger to boot!

    I can see the possibilities..... heh

    I actually use Plague because overall damage is higher. Also definitely mix in conflag before the bombard to make sure they run for max DS dmg.

    oh ya, almost forgot, also supernovas. Conflag/nova then trigger, because bombard has better range than the other 2.

    Thanks for the pointers, Lynk. It really is the most fun template I've played.

    Surprisingly versatile.

    Yea.. Supernova's for sure... & good point about Spellplague. I put this down on paper awhile ago, but just never got around to making it bc it's sooooo single purpose & I only have 1 acc. It could be a blast in Fel Shame though after the new patch lol.... I've run the instant kill stealthers before & nothing is more fun when your in a "Target Rich" environment !! heh. Can't you Double conflag as well? hmm I'd have to play with that conflag / nova macro... I know the nova's though they have a fair "Area of Range" do more dmg when closer... Anyway....

    my thief runs round as follows,

    alchemy(or tactics) 100
    fencing 120
    hiding 100
    ninjitsu 120
    poisoning 80
    snooping 100
    stealing 120
    stealth 120
    total 860

    easy room for some improvement on it if i had the gold as i'm only using a +10 stealth robe atm, if i had the +20 i'd push the extra 10 points into poisoning. my jewels could be pushed up too, if i was willing to drop ep from them.
    have 100 tactics on a stone to switch with alchemy , for gaining the weapon specials other than infectious strike, namely disarm, which might prove nice if the new cursed weapons loot proves popular.
