    I've been working on my ninja for around a month now so far this is what i have. I'm really thinking of dropping hiding and stealth to pick up ant and healing. I will lose for ninja moves though, but by adding ant and healing i think i could do more damage for pvm. Just wanted to hear some ideas on this please?

    110 sword
    105 tactics
    100 stealth
    105 ninjitsu
    105 med
    100 hiding
    100 chiv

    Chiv only needs to be 65. Bushido is a good option as well on that template. Most people use potions, and you may or may not want to keep med on the template. It really is a pvp template, but if you are really patient it can be fun to kill pvm stuff. I'd suggest a hit lower attack stam and mana leech weapon for pvm. You also get confidence with bushido, which heals pretty well at 120. Whatever you do, don't get rid of ninjitsu totally. You will hate yourself when you are training it for the third time to 100 or higher. I know from experience. :( if you search threads for assassin, there are quite a few templates and advice available for you in the warriors forum

    you should drop your stealth to 85....at 85 you never fail and you can use the extra points towards ninja.


    if you cast the spell animal form and select dog form(not wolf form) you will regen hitpoints and the higher your ninja the faster you regen and you can use chiv and gheal pots for extra healing.

    80 if your armor is medable.
    120 if your armor is not medable (I think... I've never actually used stealth with non-medable armor).

    Having extra stealth will reduce your chances of being detected (against both passive and active detect hidden), however... but I haven't ever had a problem keeping hidden with just 80.

    Yes and no.

    My ninja archer has 75 stealth (75 is all ya need) and 80 hiding.

    My ninja swordsman has 100 hide/120 stealth (actually 110 and wears the +10robe) because any lower makes deathstrike do less damage.

    On an archer that is of course not a factor, so less is fine...but if you plan on using DS and want it to do more damage you need 120/100 (and at very least human form tracking to go with it...more would be better)

    As for the chiv, since I cure with pots, and avoid using Divine Fury (red pots ftw) I felt no reason to have more than 50 chiv...which is plenty to cast close woulds, and remove curse. This is for pvp of course. More would be nice...105 for holy lights would be great since I run 4/6 casting...but there is just no room for it on my template.

    This is what my temp looks like

    120 swords
    120 ninja
    120 bushido (confidence+nerve strike+lightning strike)
    120 stealth
    100 hiding
    100 tactics
    50 chivalry

    With human form tracking (20 skill) I can do a max of around 52 on a deathstrike, and if I don't track its 42 or thereabouts. With higher tracking you can do a lot more.

    4/6 casting, 50% ep, max lmc, 10 mana regen, 45 hci/65 dci, corpse proof suit (75+ fire/poison)

    As for the original question, I of course heal with chiv, pots, and confidence. If this were an archer template (deathstrike sux on archers) I would not have the bush, chiv, or as high hiding/stealth and would go with anat/heal...

    A Ninja without Stealth isn't a Ninja.
    I only heal through Dog Form. No healing skill whatsoever. The goal is to strike and then to vanish, not to tank against dangerous enemies.

    I don't think you can really claim intellectual rights of that template, I've been using the ninja/bushy build for ages on GL and posted it on the warrior forum some time ago.

    Of course. I have played Ninja/Bush templates before in the past myself (albeit not set up like this one w/ stealth and no heal/anat)

    I just found it amusing how a good half dozen or so people (mostly TB guys it seemed) were making characters like mine after I played for a few days.
