    So the only way to solo this boss is to own 3 active accounts?

    No I can do it with two accounts takes double time tho, but I guess if I had a feint weapon I could solo it (1 account) but would take 30+ minutes

    Two bards and a samp is all but afk for Cora.

    Can be done even faster if you put spellweaving on one of the bards for some well timed WOD at the end.

    Looking at this on my phone and it's hard to see what you are capping out for damage, could you share that? I farm Cora all the time with one bard but it's totally afk with two..

    239 my highest lightning strike crit , in this video I think 231 , but IM training back my anatomy to 120 since I read it makes critial proc more often. Yea it takes 20 minutes completly afk, but I like to chain lightning strikes and counter attacks, specially when two crits back to back with counter attack , for a total of almost 600 damage . If I had a captain johne's blade ,near the end, I could probly wraith form and chain double strikes with the bane property not sure how much it would do tho

    I had two crosshealing parry warriors that I'd use to solo Doom before UO:SE came out. I used UOAssist to setup my crosshealing macros and paly spells. ALT-Triple Click (auto follow) was soooo helpful in Doom with two accounts running. Yes it was a simplier time - lol.

    Nowadays, multi clienting has gone up a few levels. Throw in the EC's long macros and things get real interesting.

    Watching your video makes me want to activate more accounts! Good job, and keep the videos coming.

    Where did you read that, because I thought it was based only on Bushido skill? I didn't think Anatomy had any factor as far as crit chance.

    All I can find is this on UO Guide, and I don't really trust whoever wrote it since they aren't even sure about what a LS Crit does (it's basically an armor ignore, for anyone who hasn't used LS yet ;P).

    Edit: Nm the old formula I saved is (Bushido x Bushido) /72000, so I guess 20% at 120 Bushido.

    Found here, as well:

    You might be correct but it could be a coincidence I gained 0,1 anatomy in this video while having a critical) we'll probly not know unless a dev come here and tell us , well Im training anatomy back from 90 and im now near 115 and didnt see an increase in the proc chance of criticals, but I noticed a slight damage increase. I might change my weapon and run with ornate axe and gm lumberjack. Curious to see what would be the damage output

    I am pretty sure, the only difference Anatomy will make, is higher base damage and thus overall damage done per hit. No effect to crit hit chance that I know about. This is how rumors get started.

    Not sure...all I know is the old formula was definitely Bushido-only, for the purposes of crits. I know they changed Evasion a few times, and of course they changed how crits worked in PvP, haha...but yeah...well, they also adjusted the mana cost, right? So I guess that was one PvM change. Hm. I'm just of the opinion that what's up on UO Guide doesn't seem to be backed by any kind of statement, you know, like, there isn't even a Bushido-based formula that I can find there, so it's a real conspiracy theory. If I had to bet, I'm going to assume it's still like it was since SE launched (other than the aforementioned changes we know to be true, like the PvP nerfs, etc).

    Definitely agree with what you stated. Your explanation was certainly the easiest to understand. I tell you, I usually get irked when folks discuss issues that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and explained out everything without complication. Maybe, people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

    Lightning Strike's Critical Chance is based upon Bushido skill, it caps out at 20% Critical Chance at 120 Bushido. Lightning Strike Criticals are somewhat stronger than AIs in PvM, since AI only does 90% of your damage, while Criticals do the full 100%. Lightning Strike has been nerfed a couple of times since it was first introduced. The first nerf to it capped it at 35 damage in PvP, and the second nerf doubled it's Mana Cost from 5, to 10.
    Before the nerfs, my Samurai/Swordsman was sometimes able to insta gib people with two simultaneous Lightning Strike crits, one would be a Lightning Strike triggered by Counter Attack, and the other would be a Lightning Strike triggered by auto attack. With the Sword of the Stampede (No-Dachi) doing 60+ damage a LS Crit, it would insta kill most anyone back then.

    Usually this is compensated by other bonuses (Slayer, EOO, Honor) so AI does the same damage.

    As to my experience when you do simultaneous auto attack and Counter Attack only one of them uses activated special. This is why Counter Attack didn't increase overall damage in my tests.
