[Healing] Healing and Whammy

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Grimm_of_Oceania, May 2, 2009.

  1. After watching a few video's on you tube I decided I need to add a whammy to my sampire and abc archer collection.

    I havnt started the char yet (have a free slot). I was thinking of the following

    120 swords
    120 bush
    120 parry
    90 heal
    90 anat
    80 tactics
    60 chiv
    40 necro

    This character will be used only for peerless (eventually solo). I like the idea of not relying on mana for healing so I can span ls every time i strike.

    I was think of useing a darkwood armour set I had on my archer or make an artie/runic set myself. I would be focusing on mana regen (might even use the helm of insight) and of course dci.

    Is the above template too tight. Considering it is only for peerless, will I be a sitting duck without resist (I haven't had a "warrior" without resist before) or should I stick with healing.
     
  2. The darkwood armor set only works as a set... all 6 pieces. No mana regen on that, and can't use the helm of insight. Runic dovetail saws won't add any mods to a darkwood set, but not sure if that is what you meant.

    I still don't see how you are going to heal... are you using life leech weapons? Healing with bandages is going to bee too slow against top monsters.
     
  3. I would either use the darkwood set or make a set using various arties and runic (probably barbed) armour. I have decided to use the darkwood on the wammy now though.

    I have an orni or novo bleue set I could use to get 4/6 chiv casting so I was wondering if this was enough along with a soul seeker or would I need to use healing as well.

    Basically healing or resist?

    I think you need Spirit speak for that build to work, without spirit speak you won't really leech much mana (if any) while in wraith form.
     
  5. Not to mention making Curse Wep pretty much useless, which is the primary healing for a Wammy.
     
  6. I didnt realise leech from wraith was ss dependent. Hmmm that tightens up the template a fair bit.

    Would uninterupted healing be more of a benefit than curse weapon, as well as the savings to mana for curing poison? If I dont use mana to heal or cure, would the nerfed mana leech be suffice to just maintain EoO and LS perhaps?
     
  7. Is there anyone out there who use's a similar template with success?

    When I ran that template (it was my first wraith, and went through a lot of revisions over time, but it worked well), I had jewelry with +15 macing, parry and +28 necromancy in addition to the bloodwood spirit (+10 spirit speak, +5 necromancy)

    With those 73 points extra (and 5 points away from macing, parry and bushido since I didn't have the 120's), I could easily fit in the spirit speak needed to make curse weapon and wraith form very effective.
