Essential Slayers

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Old Man of UO, Jul 30, 2010.

  1. What are your essential slayer types for your Sampire and Archers?

    I am crafting new weapons and don't want to waste imbuing ingredients. For my Sampire I will make rune blades with Slayer HML/HSL/SSI/DI then enhance with dull copper (no POF). The weapons for my archer are trickier because I am using looted bows with no DI and 30SSI, add POF, imbue with Slayer/HML/HSL/HLD and then enhance with Ash and hope for the best.

    So far I plan to make in this order:
    Scorpion (money maker)
    Spider (for navery)
    Dragon
    Demon
    Undead (for archer only - Sampire has Trinket)
    Repond

    What else do you carry?

    My arsenal includes the following:

    100% Physical Hatchet - All 3 leeches, HLD, and HLA
    Cold/Poison split hatchet - All 3 leeches, hld and HLA (use this for mobs with high phys so if I can't AI due to mana I can still LS for decent leech)

    100% Phys Ornate - 30 ssi, hsl, hll, hml, hla

    These are the weapons I use on the champ bosses or peerless bosses. If they have low phys I use ornate, otherwise I use hatchet for AI spam.

    I have another set of weapons that I use for champ spawn level 1-4. The only wep I don't have yet is the double axe for Rikki. I use a rune blade for abyss only because I already have that demon slayer with 100% psn dmg but once I make 2 non excep 100% psn dmg weps Ill be making one for each slayer type.

    rikktor
    spawn double axe psn dmg, ssi, hml, hsl, reptile slayer, hit psn area

    abyss
    spawn rune blade psn dmg, ssi, hml, hsl, demon slayer, di

    arachnid
    spawn large battle axe fire dmg, ssi, hml, hsl, arachnid slayer, 1 cold resist

    baracoon
    spawn soulseeker


    neira (use conjuror trinket)
    spawn double axe fire dmg, ssi, hml, hsl, fc 1, di
     
  3. Good info, Lynk... thanks.

    I assume you got your hatchet, ornate axe, and double axe from loot and enhanced it? Meaning only 450 intensity.

    Old Man, What are you using your Sampire for? For me, that determins the weapons I use.

    I spawn on my Sampire, a lot, so my weapons are all geared to do spawns as fast as possible. I would be happy to list them if you are interested.

    In short, I am a Swords Sammy, and I only use 3 types of weapons now, Radiants Scimitars, Double Axes, and Bladed Staves. I have 5 Radiants, 3 Double Axes, and 3 or 4 Bladed Staves. I use them for everything, Spawns, SA mini Spawns, Peerless, Event stuff, just depends on what I am fighting.

    The actual Slayers are: Demon, Arachnid, Reptile, Repond, Spider and Dragon. (Undead on Trinket) I also have a 100% fire double Axe (no Slayer)
     
  6. Thanks, Nyses. That's the kind of information you and Lynk provided that I am looking for. I have dozens of looted weapons that I am slowly replacing with imbued weapons.

    I use my sampire for just about everything my friends are up for, whether moving spawns, Doom, Abyss bosses and I am working towards doing the peerless solo. So I want to have a collection that I can just grab and go.

    Also, my sampire has soul stones to swap out swords/mace/fencing. I like my blackstaff for spawns, rune blades for most other things. I don't have the gear to use Ornate Axes to the best effect... not enough stamina/SSI gear. I want to play with Lynk's template using Lumberjack with axes, too.

    Dude, I'd strongly recomend a bladed staff for any bosses - imbue slayer properties on them if you like.

    Reasons are these:

    1) similair damage output to rune blade but easier to stay at max swing.
    2) Ability to AI (poormans crit) when needed to leech big, after being hit - makes me much more survivable vs rikktor. Get hit? just hit AI twice. Often you'll be able to chain AI 4-5 times.
    3) it looks big.

    Other thing i'd suggest is to enhance with shadow iron as it adds more durability?

    I'd also er towards super-slayers for spawn flexibility and cost-effectiveness - kill miasma and mephist with the same weap for example, rather than making 2 lesser-slayers. the extra 100% damage increase isn't so relevant when using chiv and perfection i find...

    My fave slayers?

    Reptile for rikki/GDs/stygian/renowned wyvern (rad schim, daisho and bladed staff)
    Arachnid for mephist/miasma/navrey (RS & BS)
    Undead/demon for doom and their respective spawns. (RS & Diasho)
    Repond for cavern of discarded/barracoon/medusa (RS & BS)

    Sweet :eek:)
     
  8. I think you mean Dull Copper, not shadow for the durability.

    I tired the bladed staff and the damage output didn't compare to the rune blade. I can try again on a couple slayers that I have to compare... I just added the +5% SSI cape, and need to look for a good +5% SSI ring.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Better yet, get an undead slayer and a trinket. Don't even have to EoO.
    With a Trinket and an Undead Slayer 100% fire double axe I can cut through rotting corpses like butter, and I don't even have anatomy :)
     
  11. LOL... you seem to have a Napoleon complex... I hope you get over it soon! :lol:

    Why the Trinket and Undead Slayer wep? I didn't think that the damage from 2 of the same slayer stacked.

    ^uh whoa, must test

    ok, this one will prolly fall to thunderz. i burned several dc and shadow runic hammers last night tryin to get some good superslayer 'blanks' i can imbue.

    got plenty of dragon, scorp, spider, air/fire/blood/poison elemental but not one single super slayer.

    is it even possible to get superslayers from dc or shadow runic hammers? how are you guys getting them? or do i just need to imbue them.

    thanks

    I just imbue them. Its easier, faster and less tedious to get the mats, than getting the hammers and burning them.

    Agreed, only thing I burn DCs for is elemental damage weps. I soulstone smithing off, buy it to 40, equip the appropriate ash/talisman to get me the highest success chance with lowest except chance so I dont waste a mod on DI.

    i've gotten several 100% energy weaps but they keep having ubws on them. is there any way to get the elemental damage without the useless mods? (aside from looting) or is there a better way?

    This is the best way that I know of, without looting or buying them from someone else.

    I usually get 1 usable non-physical wep from each DC hammer. Its not always 100% energy, or 100% cold, just non-physical.

    Sounds like your just getting unlucky, iv had loads with 100% energy or 90%.

    i am getting the usable mixed elemental resist ones, but the higher 90% or 100% seem to have junk mods a lot. i've had two 100% energy resist ones with ubws... what are the odds...
