Having been away from UO for a while, I came back charged up to play a Tamer which I had never done before. After a week of play I can say my Tamer is easily my most fun character to play, however I feel it is lacking just a bit. My current spec is Mage Tamer. I've toyed around with incorporating some of the other casting skills such as Mysticism, etc, however in all my play it feels like the Mage Tamer is a waste. One of the most enjoyable things to do on a mage is to create summons, which is completely nullified with a Tamer. So I'm looking into a possible change. I've been researched the Archer Tamer, but I've found very little mention of it on these forums, so I'm wondering if its even feasible these days. I like the look of the Archer/Tamer spec at Professions - The Tamer: Character Templates mentioned in the FAQ, but it is 2 years old so I'm curious if it still holds up. I know it may come down to personal preference, but I'd love to hear from other Archer/Tamers about your experiences as one. Likewise, I'd love to get some help for Str/Dex/Int caps. And I could use some help on what sorts of armor stats I should be focusing on. Lastly, with a character like this should I only wear medable armor or does it not matter?
