Coming back to UO, many questions have dawned upon me. I thought I would just get to the point and ask them point blank.. 1. I have one melee character who wares plate. He is a Paladin with Soul Seeker, Shield of Invulnerability, and the Virtue Armor set. On my Blacksmith mule, would I ever be able to craft anything better than that? 2. I need the final word on Resist Spells. I play PvM only, no PvP. Do I need it at all? 3. Bouncing off question #2 above, I also have a Tinker who can make trap boxes when one of my characters gets paralized??? Will any type do? Will a dart trap work? I dont see the option to create a "trapped box" 4. It seems that logging out at an inn or your house can still sometimes be a crapshoot as far as switching characters without getting the dreaded "Another character from this world is currently logged in" etc). Is there some trick to this? Do I need to log out closer to a bed? Or is logging out at my house preferred? 5. On my mule, I often struggle with picking Magery or Chiv + one Melee skill. The key here is, I want to be able to somewhat defend myself and teleport. It seems that most mules need high Strength. But at the same time the better choice seems to be Magery because it is only one skill and you have lots of tricks to get away if needed from ore elementals, etc. So my question is, does anyone out there have a mule that can carry a ton yet also be a mage with like 50 mana or so? Enough to get off a couple spells? 6. Are their currently any crafting professions that just aren't worth it these days? How is tailoring? What good is Tinkering for in later levels? Is Carpentry worth it later on to make nice decorations? 7. It does not seem like mana is ever an issue for me. Why do people suggest the skill "Healing" when if you have Chivalry you can easily heal yourself or Sprit Speak for a Necro or healing spells for a Mage? 8. If you have a spellbook lets say for example with +10 damage do you still get that bonus with a spell channeling weapon in your hand? If you so, what happens if you have two spellbooks in your inventory? Which one takes preference? Thanks in advance!
