    Depends on what your planning on making and what skills. Most fighting/magery skills can be worked up to 120 easily within a 2 week period as long as you have access to the scrolls. It just comes down to knowing what to fight/cast at the right time to max skill gains and the amount of time your willing to put into it. Also it depends on shard since Siege has different rules for skill gains.

    I might get flamed to saying it, but if you're just starting out and have limited in-game resources and no one to help you along, there's no shame in buying an advanced char token. It will speed up the skill training on your first char and make you strong enough to do something more fun than fighting skeletons and mongbats. Also, it will help you get gold and items faster, making it possible to get scrolls and armor that will help you along.

    You can buy the token from uogamecodes.com for $29.99. Or you could buy a token in-game, but they are quite pricey.

    Once purchased, you will be sent an email with a promotional code in it. The main thing to remember is that the character you wish to use the token on must have less than 200 skill points. If the character has more than 200, the code will not work and cannot be used again.

    To get your Advanced Character Code in game, follow these steps:


    1. Start the game, CREATE A NEW CHARACTER, and enter the game world with that character. This is the character that will be transformed into an advance character.
    2. Open your paperdoll (or character window) and click on the Help button.
    3. Click the "Claim Promotional Item" button at the top of the Help window.
    4. Enter your Advanced Character Code EXACTLY as it appears when it is emailed to you.
    5. Your code will be verified and if valid, an Advanced Character Token will be placed in your inventory bag.
    6. Click on the token and you’ll be given a choice between all the advanced character templates. Select the one you want and your character will be transformed

    check on uogamecodes for the adv. char templates you'll be able to choose from. that way you are not scratching your head ingame.

    I've used a couple to simply get decent resist levels for the fighters in my "family". then the new char was turned into a mule with the remaining stuff.

    From UOGameCodes - the advanced char templates:

    Samurai:
    A true Samurai warrior strives for perfection in combat, wisdom, honor, courage. These are the hallmarks of this venerable profession. Although anyone can build their Bushido skill, only when you master a wide variety of special abilities and weapon maneuvers such as Honorable Execution and Lightning Strike will you truly be worthy of the armor of the Samurai. (Must have Ultima Online: Samurai Empire to choose this template. If you do not have Samurai Empire, please CLICK HERE to purchase Ultima Online: Samurai Empire.)
    • 85 Bushido
    • 85 Swordsmanship
    • 85 Parrying
    • 70 Tactics
    • 70 Focus
    • 85 Strength, 85 Dexterity, 55 Intelligence

    Ninja:
    The discipline of Ninjitsu is not for the weak of body or mind. You must build dexterity. You must move silently. You must think and act quickly, because your very life depends on it. If you wish to deal death without being seen or heard, then the Ninja advanced character is for you. (Must have Ultima Online: Samurai Empire to choose this template. If you do not have Samurai Empire, please CLICK HERE to purchase Ultima Online: Samurai Empire.)
    • 85 Ninjitsu
    • 85 Hiding
    • 85 Stealth
    • 70 Fencing
    • 70 Tactics
    • 85 Strength, 85 Dexterity, 55 Intelligence

    Necromancer:
    Necromancers are masters of the dark arts, able to inflict pain, pestilence, cold, and vile curses against their hapless foes. They are leaders of the undead, with the power to animate corpses of creatures that have fallen in battle to serve their wicked ways. And with a simple utterance of an ancient spell, they can even transform themselves into some of these creatures, gaining both their powers and weaknesses. If it is a darker path you seek, embrace evil and become a Necromancer. (Must have Ultima Online: Age Of Shadows or a later expansion pack to choose this template.)
    • 85 Necromancy
    • 85 Spirit Speak
    • 85 Resisting Spells
    • 70 Fencing
    • 70 Meditation
    • 80 Strength, 70 Dexterity, 75 Intelligence

    Paladin:
    In a land threatened by evil necromancers, fearsome dragons, and malevolent beasts from the darkest depths of the world, few have the power to battle such creatures better than the paladin. Paladins are the most noble of all adventurers. The quintessential knight in shining armor, the paladin protects the land with both his sword and divine powers. Revered by most, they uphold law and order and assist those in need. Only a select few can take on such tasks, but the question remains…. can you? (Must have Ultima Online: Age Of Shadows a later expansion pack to choose this template.)
    • 85 Chivalry
    • 85 Resist Spells
    • 85 Swordsmanship
    • 70 Tactics
    • 60 Focus
    • 85 Strength, 85 Dexterity, 55 Intelligence
    • Title set to trustworthy

    Treasure Hunter:
    The treasure hunter is a true adventurer, one who travels the world in search of buried chests of valuable treasure and oftentimes has to battle (or escape from!) formidable foes in order to claim such bounty. They are often found traveling with groups of other adventurers, but with magery, musicianship, and peacemaking as part of their repertoire of skills, they are able to tackle most obstacles on their own. If you're looking for challenge, companionship, fun and fortune, the treasure hunter is the character for you.
    • 85 Lockpicking
    • 85 Cartography
    • 85 Peacemaking
    • 70 Magery
    • 70 Musicianship
    • 100 Strength, 100 Intelligence, 25 Dexterity

    Mage:
    Mages are among the most powerful characters in the game. Their spells can not only damage attackers from a distance, but can be used for transportation and healing as well. Some mages are also able to resist magic when it is wielded against them. Mages using meditation to regenerate their fearsome power and the ability to inscribe skills to supplement their other skills will soon find themselves at the right end of the food chain.
    • 85 Magery
    • 85 Resist Spells
    • 85 Evaluate Intelligence
    • 70 Inscription
    • 70 Meditation
    • 80 Strength, 110 Intelligence, 35 Dexterity

    Warrior:
    If looking the enemy in the eye appeals to you, or if you prefer the safe solidity of an arrow over magic, the warrior is the character for you. With their weapons in hand, these characters can battle almost anywhere in the world of Britannia. Warriors are often valuable party members, whether on a boat, on land, or in the caverns beneath the earth, as their fighting skills and healing abilities hold the line against their opponents.

    Note: You will have the choice to create a specialized advanced warrior. You can create a Swordsman, a Fencer, a Mace Fighter or an Archer, depending on what template you choose.
    • 85 Swordsmanship or Fencing or Mace Fighting or Archery
    • 85 Tactics
    • 85 Anatomy
    • 70 Healing
    • 70 Resist Spells
    • 110 Strength, 80 Dexterity, 25 Intelligence

    Blacksmith:
    Few characters can survive the world without the blacksmith behind them, giving support. Their ability to mine precious ore and shape it into weapons and armor keeps the warriors supplied (not to mention being a source of wealth!). Their knowledge of tailoring affords them the ability to craft leather armor as well, truly rounding out their armor crafting abilities. As tinkers, they keep the thieves of the world supplied with lock picks and the romantics of the world supplied with jewelry.
    • 85 Blacksmithing
    • 85 Mining
    • 85 Tinkering
    • 70 Tailoring
    • 70 Magery
    • 125 Strength, 25 Dexterity, 65 Intelligence

    Bard:
    The bard is an admirable adventurer, capable of creating generating wide swaths of death against many of the most formidable of opponents that exist in the dungeons, on the land, or on the sea. Armed with a mere instrument as a weapon, the bard can provoke powerful monsters into frenzied attack against other beings, or weaken them until they are little match for the warriors of his or her party. The ability to calm one or more opponents in the fury of battle can protect a bard—or those around a bard—from certain death, even in the absence of a bow or blade. Whether traveling alone or in a party, this character can well make his or her way almost anywhere in Britannia.
    • 85 Provocation
    • 85 Musicianship
    • 85 Peacemaking
    • 70 Discordance
    • 70 Resist Spells
    • 85 Strength, 55 Intelligence, 85 Dexterity

    Tamer:
    Tamers have command over many of the awesome beasts that wander the land-and over some of the monsters as well! Far from simply being a supplier of mounts to the other inhabitants of Britannia, tamers are combatants in their own right, particularly with magery to supplement the damage done by their mounts. Their ability to heal their pets and to know the characteristics of the creatures of the world round out the tamers' skills, making them powerful indeed.
    • 85 Taming
    • 85 Animal Lore
    • 85 Veterinary
    • 70 Magery
    • 70 Meditation
    • 80 Strength, 80 Intelligence, 55 Dexterity

    as an assassin, you'd want hiding, stealth, poisoning (perhaps) ... so Ninja might be good start.

    Maybe you should introduce yourself as to what shard your playing on, how long have you been playing UO, and if you've joined a guild. There are usually a couple people on every shard that would be willing to spend some time giving pointers and maybe throw together a suit/weapons to help a new player.

    Well my old account I have some characters on Atlantic Ches, Napa, but I am really looking to make a fresh start and delet my old ones due to the fact they only have 100 skill points each so they are toons that I never really got going. So I am open for suggestions I am on East coast so let me know. Thanks again...

    If you want to see more than 5-10 people at a time in anyone place I suggest Atlantic. I just spent over 100bucks transferring my characters over there because I was so tired of the deadlands that are legends. also Atl is great for PVP and just about everything else because of the population.

    If you want a shard where everyone is nice nice because its like a small town where everyone knows everyone then I suggest Legends.
