archmage template

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by YuriGaDaisukiDa, Aug 24, 2009.

  1. has anyone tried making an archmage, all around mage template?

    it will be even more complex with mystacism comming out.

    it is impossible to make it all powerfull, because there isnt room for imbuing/inscription/poisoning. But it is versatile. It has it weaknesses.

    base template

    120 mage
    120 eval
    120 myst
    120 necro
    120 spirit
    120 weaving

    must be human for mana regen, and get some mana regen armor, lich form can help, but no mount in pvp can be a problem.

    you can get level 5 poison with this template if you lower some skills for poisoning.

    sac about 80 points total for poisoning, (not from magery), and you use evil omen plus in nox for level 5. (you need 200 points total in mage and poison)

    any thoughts/variants?

    i have a necro/mage/weaver(human for joat)

    120 magery
    120 eval
    120 necro
    120 spirit speak
    120 spell weaving
    120 spell resist

    went to retribution and
    tried 120 mysticism in place of resist( even with what little he resists with potection on it helps cut the duration of curses ect). he died reapeatedly to about every thing usually went like this curse ,para, explode, poison flamestrike if i didnt die the it went para explode flamestike( sometimes they used sleep lol) then i died. u cant run away even mounted they can cast 2-3 screens away(though they were castin as far as 6-7 most of the time, but figured this was a bug)and spam para/damage spell on you.
    it might be manageable if u could get 60-70 resist on items but if u used protection( a necessity almost in solo pvm) it wouldnt work because of the -35 spell resist penalty. not sure why mages have to take -35 skill penalty, the slower cast time is more than enough to keep u from using it much in pvp,and the penalty is a bit much for pvm.

    hehehe...agreed. All I can say is wow! I've run a necro/mage tamer without meditation, BUT I was using mostly the pets (as one would hope) to get the job done. The necro was mostly for kicks and giggles. Nothing like finishing someone off running away with a In Sar.

    105 Necro is enough for 100% Wither. Everything else you dont really need a 100% Chance on. So theres allready 15 points free. Use Crystalline Ring or other ring with huge amounts of skillpoints and you can get atleast 40-50 Meditation in...

    Atleast I think I´d do that if I wanted to play that kinda template.
    But I agree 0 med on pure caster is not a good idea. Especially in combination with 0 resist! =)

    That is not too bad advice really. I do not have the link handy for the mana regen/return calculator or whatever it is, but with 40 to 50 meditation coupled with some descent MR...that would be something.
