Hi everyone, I have been playing UO for a while now just working on my crafter. With SA being released, I want to get back into PvM. It has been a while since I did PvM, (and I really didn't fight too much back then) and when I am fighting various monsters, I find myself turning into a corpse more often than not. I was wondering if I can get some advice from all of you on my current armor/weapon and suggestions on what changes to my stats/equipment I could make to improve the odds so to speak. With SA, I want to get to the point where I can get items/loot from monsters to help my other characters and to help my crafter in the game (as well as to have more fun). I also want to progress further in the game than fighting monsters in Despise. Here is my main archer character information: Armor: Darkwood Set Overall Stats ------------- Reflect Physical Damage: 25% DCI: 39% overall (includes jewellry) HP Increase: 12 HP Regeneration: 2 Luck: 123 (includes jewellry) Physical Resists: 70 Fire Resists: 70 Cold Resists: 70 Poison Resists: 70 Energy Resists: 75 Strength: 106 Dexterity: 109 Intelligence: 25 Weapon: Wildfire Bow Archery +10 Velocity: 15% Fire Resistence: 25% Fire Damage: 100% Weapon Dmg.: 19-22 Weapon Speed: 4s Range: 10 My skills are: Anatomy: 106.0 Archery: 105.4 Tactics: 99.7 Healing: 77.1 Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
