I am just restarting UO after a several year break and unfortunately my old characters got deleted. I worked my mage back up to a point where most mid level stuff is cake and some harder stuff I can handle solo also. I always wanted to play a warrior type in UO but never seemed to be able to live long enough to do it. I see posts of guys soloing Doom bosses and I can barely stand up to Orc Lords sometimes. I realize that my skills are really low right now. Mid 60 for pretty much everything. However was just wanting some pointers on how you survive fights. If I try to stand toe to toe with something I usually die unless I am hitting really well. Bandages take too long to apply and I end up having to run away. Is it just a matter of having really low skill? I also do no have much in the way of a resist suite. Maybe 40s in all. I had a GM Swordsman before but never played him because I never seemed to be able to take anything on solo.
