    If you pick "Other," can you add a post to explain what you mean? Thanks!

    Answer is 'other'

    I been gone for a while, only back since end of oct. didn't get into factions too much mainly because of the way home bases were set up, back then at least was seemingly impossible to get into castle british without trying to push through 40 vendors, while running into traps and being attacked. like I said it's been a while.

    to answer the question - if the system were good and I got into the factions, I'd probably try to put in a character type that was missing from the faction whatever that would be. I have no problems playing a support role to aid the greater good.

    Think I ticked 6 boxes.... course that was to be expected for all the shards I have chars on.

    As far as others.....
    Most would be in the thief or speciality chars such as:

    Alchemy, Mage, Med, Hide, Stealth, Ninja, Steal
    or
    Ninja, Hide, Steal, Stealth, Detect, Remove Trap, Chiv

    Lots of speciality chars for me in factions.

    Yeah, so are mine: remove trap, detect hidden, tracking, hiding, stealthing, stealing, lockpicking, etc. Sneaky little nuisances. But they only steal sigils. A couple of the tamers have some stealing too and full detect hidden and tracking to find someone else's little nuisances.

    Among the several mages and mage/tamers I have scattered across the 5 shards I play, my beloved Resurrection fell under the 'other' category as a nerve striking, armor ignoring, death striking, explode pot chucking champion of Sosaria.

    Why did you leave out Stealth Archer?

    I'm also primarily on an "other" toon.

    Similar character to Lynk's bunny Resurrection except I destroy full health/fully suited people, whereas he more often than not just rez kills them.

    Note: If you don't want to vote in the poll but do want to see the results, I believe you can see the poll results if you log out of Stratics and then open the thread again while you are not logged in.

    I made selections, but they don't really tell the tale. I have a thief that is magery, eval, stealing, stealth, alchemy, ninjitsu and resist. None of the skills are intended to be over 115, most are intended to be GM.

    I have a "fill in" character that IS a necro mage, but one whom I only use the necromancy if I am doing a champ spawn - other than that it is a support character for fielding, healing, and back up offense.

    Lastly I have a a Bush/Swords char.

    Disclaimer is ... last time I played "hard core" factions was on GL with Cardell ... I am sure that will tell you about how long it was.

    on every shard i did the same thing.
    i made what i thought i would need (or my guild) to give us a nice mix of everything.

    so on ever shard i have a:
    faction thief.
    i have a trap remover / tinker for placing traps and pulling traps.
    i have a tamer for defence.
    i have a mage for fields.
    and on most a archer for those big melee fights.

    Onyxia is the res killer. Resurrection is the one that puts a hurt on your Lynk-wanna-be templates. How does it feel to always copy someone else?

    I used to have two faction thieves, one a stealth ninja with magery so I could animal form and recall in protection and not be interrupted and one with stealth, detect hidden, tracking and remove trap (neither had any form of offense at all but they could run away really well haha). They were both dismantled in favor of other templates. My faction tinker was taken out of factions when I switched from Minax to TB and never put back in, mainly because we stopped stealing sigils and I had no need to make faction traps. I've also had char with only vet so I could res pets for people in factions.
