I'm trying a new template that is designed to be cheap, easy, and fun to build from scratch on new shards. Here's the template I'm trying atm; Magery 110 Eval 115 Necro 100 SS 120 (ideally) Hiding 30 Stealth 75 Animal Lore 80 Veterinary 90 Start as a Human on the enhanced client for extra initial skill pts and spend them as follows. 50 Taming, 49 necro, 20 Magery, 1 Vet. I spend the initial 1k buying magery up to 40, then the rest on lore and vet. Start the Magery, Necro, Eval, quests in New Haven. These will give you a full Necro spellbook, a blessed spell channeling mage staff, and a blessed ring w/fc1 fcr1. No need to finish the quests right away, just go tame some bouras! I usually get four, 2 to bond and 2 to hunt with. And I get a mount at the same time. I usually kill some stuff around there to get enough gold to buy some bandages. Then it's off to hunt tsuki wolves. If you isolate these guys they are really easy with 2 lowlands. You can hunt these guys till you get your vet up to 90 and lore to 80 if you want. You can also build those skills while you train your boura against each other. Buy then you'll have a ton of loot, as the wolves drop about 1k and lots of magic gear. If you start a gargoyle with 50 imbuing and 50 tailoring at the same time you can unravel all of this gear and make yourself an lrc suit. You could also pay or trade someone to make one. Another great thing for new characters is the solen hive quest for powder and the bags and balls along the way. This can easily get you enough cash to commission a nice suit and some jewels. With the LRC suit you're set to train your other skills. I make a macro like this Cast Invis pause 500 target self pause 500 use skill stealth pause 1000 cast (appropriate necro spell for skill level) pause 2000-3000 I let med and focus rise and then lower them when I have to I lower them. The last thing I drop is taming. Ideally you get a couple pair of sweet bouras, but if you need to get them again simple trade 30 hiding for 30 bought taming and jewel up to get some more. All in all I think this is a fun character to make, though definitely not the most powerful. I typically run around 1000 gold of insurance, so if you do end up dieing it's no biggy. I usually play in Fel I've done the first couple levels of many spawns, but haven't tried too much. I'm sure it has it's limitations. I think it would be helpful to a group. If anyone wants to start Boura Hunting Guild on any shard I am 100% down On a side note, I only saw the Highland on the pet calculator chart, but I prefer two lowlands. I can't really tell....but I think they do more damage overall to most things. Anyways, I have one with 565 HP and 435 str. that I think is the best I've gotten so far. What are your experiences with bouras?
