Good Siege Templates

    If someone was somewhat new to siege and wanted to create a good pvp character (non tamer), what would some of the better templates be? Mage templates have always been the preferred template for me, but I'm not opposed to dexxer templates. Also, I miss being able to play a thief. How viable is a thief on siege? At first glance it seems like it would be a pretty fun profession because there is no insurance on siege, but I'd like to hear what people who actually play here have to say about it before I go through the trouble of training all those skills up. I have several accounts so I'll be able to try a few different things. Any input into the above topics would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

    theives are fun, but most importantly you should play what you feel comfortably with and will have fun with.

    I like to play my fencer/archer with chiv. Works well against pvm, and does ok in pvp.

    I'm not to sure on mage templates, but some mage will chime in. I do hate those necro mage templates though, arrg they sting alot!

    But, to give you some feedback on the current template theme of Siege: stealth. Doesn't matter what goes with it- many people seem to be running stealth as a part of their template.

    I do have a dexxer which I enjoy playing, but I die a lot to stealth ambushes.
     
  4. yep start training hiding stealth and nijitsu you can get them to rot in about 2 days of training. then trow on whatever your hearts desire

    Thieves are probably not worth it. Not much worth stealing. And most people that start the thief profession you see hanging around Luna stealing from people are eventually gone in a month or two, which tells me they didn't have fun.

    As for pvp templates:
    Mage based - Necro mage is probably the best (mage/med/eval/resist/necro/ss, bless a swords of prosperity).
    Archer - dismount archer (archery/stealth/hide/tactics/ninja/anatomy/maybe healing).
    Dexxer - swords/bushido (swords/tactics/anat/bushido/parry (or resist)/heal (or chiv) + some med OR
    swords/bushido/ninja (swords/tactics/bushido/hide/stealth/ninja)

    I'd say the 4 main templates above, plus ninja/tamer account for 60-70% of all pvp templates currently in the field.

    About 50% of all templates out there now have hide/stealth/ninja on them which makes playing a character without hide/stealth/ninja hard since you are always targetted, keep that in mind.

    Thank you all for the input. I developed a distaste for hiding and stealth during the stealth archer era a few years back, but maybe I will give it a try... on one character anyway.
