Three weeks have passed since my return to Ultima Online, and I am beginning to get organized and work skills. I have a single crafter character with following skills at the moment: 100.4/120 Blackmithing 100.6/ 120 Tailoring 100 Bowcraft 100 Carpentry 100 Mining 90.1 Lumberjacking 85.5 Arms Lore 52.9 Magery After reading the forum post on Mining, my interest was piqued about "extreme miners". It sounded like a cool idea to have a gatherer that could kick some rear end. I was thinking about moving the Lumberjacking and Mining to another character and taking up melee skills to fight elementals and gather resources. The only drawback that I can see is that my crafter would not be able to smelt and unravel his crafted items. Any thoughts on this? Anything I might be missing by trying this out?
