End-Game suits

Discussion in 'The United Pirates' started by Sydrik Harpune, Nov 14, 2010.

  1. Okay, so I am still getting my head around everything that has changed in the 10 years I have played.

    Can I get some help in figuring out what suits of equipment I need for my main two toons.

    Macon is PvE focused with Swordsmanship, Bullshido, and Parrying as his prime skills.

    Sydrik is a PvP focused stealth archer... archery, stealth, ninjutsu.

    So, what am I looking for is what my final suits should look like and what do I need to go hunt down ingredient wise to make them happen.

    Thanks!

    I've done it before. Working on an ingredient list...
     
  3. Thanks... all I really know at this point are Boura hides and PoF.

    Bushido Melee Suit:

    12 Powder of Fortifying
    45 Relic Fragments
    120 Boura Pelt
    80 Luminescent Fungi
    50 Essence of Order
    20 Essence of Precision
    20 Essence of Singularity
    30 Seed of Renewal
    10 Crystal Shards
    700 Barbed Leather
    70,000 gold for gems
    500,000 gold for Enchanted Essence and Magical Residue

    ...for armor and jewelry. This may vary slightly if you have artifacts that replace armor pieces. You can also save some resources if you want to compromise. The suit would still be very good, but maybe not "perfect". Also, if you want certain skill bonuses on the jewelry, add Crystalline Blackrock.

    Similar resources for the stealth archer suit.
     
  5. Alright, time to start scavenging/shopping.

    Thanks!

    I was about to gasp in shock and awe at the cost of the suit and claim that I didn't spend that much on mine.

    Then I counted what I have.

    I spent as much or more on most of my suits. Just never in one shot.
     
  7. Collection of resources is moving along well...

    Plus I have picked up a few nice items to build around.

    Another question, only partially related but I don't want to clutter the forum with new threads...

    For a stealth PvP archer what skills should I scroll? Archery and what else?

    There are many ways, but that's what my stealth archer looks like:
    Archery
    Tactics
    Hiding
    Stealth
    Ninjitsu
    Anatomy
    Healing
     
  9. Yep, thats the skills I have as well.

    Now which ones should I power scroll... or just leave tham all at 100?

    Archery and Ninjitsu are the two skills you should raise above 100.
     
  11. Ninjitsu? Really?

    I can't find anything in the UOguide description of the skill that indicated there is any benefit at all to having it over 100.

    What am I missing?

    The reason is, your Ninjitsu spells will be more effective and you won't fail on Death Strike anymore, which is one of the most important Ninjitsu spells in PvP.

    I raised Ninjitsu to 110 and put +10 skill on a ring. But 120 scrolls are hard to come by. A 110 I can give you for free.
     
  13. I figured Deathstrike wasn't a big deal in PvP with an archer since it only does half damage that way... interesting.

    Deathstrike for an archer, in my opinion, is a waste of mana, since armor ignore does more damage for less mana.

    But I would still take ninjitsu as high as you can take it, since you get better animan forms (wolf form can be a great one! At 115 skill, you can cast wolf/bake form at 100%) and your mirror images will be more effective as your ninja skill increases (can't find the source of that information, just throwing it out from memory).

    Right, I forgot about that. It's been a while since I played that template. Wolf form is actually VERY useful, since it allows you to stealth in running speed.
     
  16. Almost done collecting for first set...

    No clue where to get relic fragments though.

    I need 20 more Seed of Renewal, 20 more Essence of Order, 35 more Boura Pelts, 80 Luminescent Fungi and 45 Relic Fragments.

    If people see these around (or find them as loot) I will buy them from you. Tired of having crap armor. Thanks for the help!

    I can't help with the seeds or the relics, but I can help with the essences, pelts and likely the fungi... if you see me around.

    For the relics, I hear the best way to get them is to make them with a crafter... have to talk to Pike about the process, I suppose.

    The seeds come from gardening, which I definitely do not do! I have 19 seeds of renewal in my stockpile, but since it's a shared stockpile with a friend, I won't take them away.
     
  18. I would be immensely appreciative...

    I have been getting the seeds from farming ingredients in Stygian Abyss. I am not fooling with that gardening nonsense.

    The last method I know to get around 30 Relic Fragments requires the following material:
    • 1 bronze runic hammer
    • 1 ancient smith hammer (optional; increases success chance slightly)
    • 35 perfect emerald
    • 700 valorite ingot
    Supply me with that material and I will get you the Relic Fragments.

    The Luminescent Fungi are as hard to come by as Seed of Renewal. Luminescent Fungi can be acquired by lumberjacking, but it will take some time (you may need wood anyway for bolts or for ship repairs). Seed of Renewal are best to be achieved by plant growing. I'm not kidding, it is the most efficient method. You have to do the following to get about 35 Seed of Renewal:
    • Get an endless water pitcher and link it to a water trough in your house.
    • Get a couple of barrels of Greater Poison and Greater Cure.
    • Get 1000 Fertile Dirt (can be bought at the mage shop in the Royal City, right behind the bank).
    • Get 100 plant bowls and fill them with Fertile Dirt (to speed up the growth rate).
    • Water each bowl twice to soften the earth.
    • Plant a seed into each bowl (bright green snake plants are less prone to disease, bright orange plants yield the very useful orange petals)
    • Put all bowls into the backpack of a character you rarely use. Make sure you use the Enhanced Client with grid view, otherwise your backpack will be a mess.
    • Log in with this character once a day (after about 24 hours) to check on the plants, water them if needed, and cure them of diseases using the poison or cure potions. Make sure you tend them correctly or they will wilt and die.
    • This requires 15 minutes a day, and you will be done after about 20 days.
    • If you tend your plants correctly, the 100 plants will yield about 35 Seed of Renewal randomly when harvesting the seeds.
    Of course, you could also buy the resources. Currently 10 Seed of Renewal are sold for about 1.3-1.5 million. 10 Relic Fragment cost about 650k.

    Essences and Boura Pelt are actually quite easy to get. I'd be happy to show you how to get resources most efficiently.

    Always remember, you can save lots of resources if you don't imbue items to maximum values. For example:
    • Imbuing the maximum of 8 Stamina Increase on a piece of armor requires 10 Luminescent Fungi, while imbuing 7 Stamina Increase requires none.
    • Imbuing 2 Mana Regeneration requires 10 Seed of Renewal, Imbuing 1 Mana Regen requires none.
    The stat increase attributes are the ones I'd consider compromising on.
     
  20. Since I don't really know what the end game suit is going to look like it is hard to decide what to skimp on... if that makes sense.

    Anyway, I will see if I can get you the stuff to make the relic fragments shortly. I will probably resort to buying the seeds though, I am not waiting another 20 days to get a real suit of armor. :wall:

    P.S.: The bronze hammer currently sells for 300k.
     
  22. Okay, down to the last couple of essences, pelts and the emeralds.

    Can we map out my template and determine how much crystalline rock I need for skills? I can get scrolls where needed...

    Stealth Archer w/ Anatomy, Archery, Healing, Hiding, Ninjitsu, Stealth and Tactics.

    I want to build around my Dread Pirate Hat (+10 Archery, +8 Dex, HCI +10%, Fire 5%, Cold 14%, Poison 10%, Energy 5%) and Quiver of Infinity (Damage Increase 10%, DCI 5%).

    Thanks again for the help!

    The only skill I'd boost is Ninjitsu with +10. The other skills I'd train as high as needed. No Crystalline Rock required.

    I'd recommend: 110 Archery, 100 Tactics, 100 Anatomy, 90 Healing, 90 Hiding, 100 Stealth, 110 Ninjitsu.

    Whenever you have the chance you should get a 120 Archery scroll, a 120 Ninjitsu scroll and a +15 or higher Stat scroll. But there's no rush with that.
     
  24. Alrighty...

    I already have Ninjutsu scrolled to 120 (found one really cheap)... Archery is at 110 but I will keep an eye out for a 120.

    Did a powerscroll for stats already too.

    Need 6 more Crystal Shards and I am good to go!
