I figured to distract myself from the mess than is this account migration (and the fact I still am stuck on a trial account, unable to upgrade), I'd come asking for suggestions! So without further adieu, the details! I fully intend to make a vast assortment of characters in the end. I like crafting, I like fishing, I like murdering....err, "arranging accidents"...so what I'll end up playing in total isn't so much in question. What IS in question is what my first character should be: the linchpin, the cornerstone, the very core of my Ultima Online future! I thought at first it would be a Sampire, but the more I play and research, the more it seems that they are best left for when the money is rolling in and I know a bit more about the game. Maybe a mage? They seem to have some utility in being able to mark, but are they quite nice at PvM? Maybe a template that is beneficial to the High Seas Booster? Whenever codes can be applied, I'll have that. Anywho, ideas and suggestions on good templates to start off a newbie would be greatly loved and appreciated!
