    I just returned and I cannot seem to find a list of skills that effect focused spec like for instance pure mage.

    The ones I know are

    Mage
    Necro
    Spiritspeak
    Mystic
    Focus
    Bushido
    Ninja
    Chiv
    Taming


    Are there any others? Like can u have hiding on a focused mage for instance? Stealth? Music? If I go googling I just get info on the focus skill and not the focused ability

    Thanks

    Looks like it, if the UO Wiki is still accurate.

    An Introduction to Spellcasting – Ultima Online

    "...Magery & Evaluate Intelligence, Necromancy & Spiritspeak, Mysticism & Focus or Imbuing, Ninjitsu, Bushido, Chivary and Spellweaving; Animal Taming, Parry and Musicianship also count when determining whether a template is focused or not."

    The SDI caps have changed with focus spec as well, they are as follows.

    Focus spec is 25% SDI (down from 30%)
    non-Focus spec is 20% SDI (up from 15%).

    Yea they did a good job at making focused mages relatively useless. Unless of course you desire lack of versatility for 3-4 damage. *thumbs up* to the moron Devs..don't forget Glenda! Another beauty..that was foreshadowed and even demonstrated!


    Edit: but hey I now have a virtuallly unstoppable Parry Necro Mage that has crazy damage output and superior defense!

    i dunno, i love seeing the new template variety. its like it used to be with the exception that if you do want to be a pure mage, ur not hampered, u get a little bump.
