    Yup, it's me again,

    I went several page down and the info seem to getting old, I still have 1 spot left on my account and would like to create a Fisherman. Be it a mage or an Archer, it does not make much difference to me but, what would be a good template for it ?

    Thanx once again :)

    My fisherman is an Archer and I personally love this as a fisherman.

    100 Fishing
    110 Archery
    110 tactics
    100 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    80 Chivalry
    The rest is currently in Spell Resist but I may look at adjusting things with jewelry and imbuing to include more.

    I don't spam my chivalry so I rarely run out of mana. I usually only use enemy of one and heal with bandies.

    Cool, this could work out :) Looking at it, maybe going this way,

    100 Fishing
    120 Archery
    120 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    80 Chivalry
    80 Spell resist

    Total 700

    Adjusting with gear and Imbuing ?

    My fishers are usually half of a crafter. Most of the times I ll end up with:
    - 110 magery
    - 110 med
    - 100 eval
    - 100 fishing
    - 100 cooking
    - 100 alchemy
    - 100 inscription
    If I would be able to fit inscription into another char, I would choose poisoning instead (90 poisoning and 110 eval in exchange).

    Mine is pretty basic

    archery 120
    tactics 100
    anatomy 100
    healing 100
    chivalry 100
    resist 100
    fishing 100

    When I'm not fishing I trade my 100 fishing for 100 Focus.

    A different char has the cooking skill so I just carry all the raw steaks home once I've returned to shore.

    Well, I'm running a T-Hunter/Fisher mix and am very happy with it.

    100 carto
    100 lock pick
    100 fishing
    100 mage (115 with tome of lost knowledge)
    100 eval
    105 music (120 with song woven mantle and traveling minstrel talisman)
    115 provo (120 with traveling minstrel talisman)

    combined with a high MR suit and a bonded vollem, there's nothing on the seas to fear and even lvl 6 maps are solo-able (it's more fun in a group, tho)
     
  7. By the way, you will actually do more damage and save a bit of gold with 115 Tactics and 105 Anatomy, or even 110/110. You can run the calculator yourself and see... what I mean, there is no need to buy the 120 tactics scroll if you haven't already. Even better is to add +20 Anatomy on jewelry for 120/120... then you will notice a difference.

    I just revamped my Fisherman to include dungeon steals.
    100 Fishing
    120 Archery
    110 Tactics
    110 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    120 Stealing
    60 Chivalry (+15 on jewelry for 75)
    Total 720

    OR for solo white fish nets (using Soul Stones)
    100 Fishing
    120 Archery
    110 Tactics
    110 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    120 Bushido
    60 Chivalry (+15 on jewelry for 75)
    Total 720

    What are your stats with this? I'm just back after another break myself. Took my old mage/fisher out and was promptly and repeatedly schooled by ... a water elemental! Harumph!

    I "used" to be just fine with my poor little mage but after looking this over I'm thinking I might have to try your template. I have an archer I could adapt to this who is currently at: str 96, dex 104, int 35. (I think I was in the process of attempting ABC archer when I quit last).

    Thanks,

    Wilis

    I believe that is it. I don't use much int as I don't cast much with the chivalry, just a back-up for offense really and sacred journey.

    for a mage fisher:

    Get someone with inscription to make you a Water elemental slayer spellbook to hold, and make sure you have good Evaluate Intelligence.

    Cast Protection, as well.

    My mage/fisher with 120 magery/120 eval and about 20% Spell damage increase from equipment does about 200-300 points damage to a single water elemental with an e-bolt (depending if she has other SDI stuff on or not) and if she uses chain lightning on a group of 3, they are still dead by about 50% more damage than their race maximum.

    In fact, she's been known to 1-hit kill paragon water elementals in Ilshenar on occasion, with an e-bolt.

    Her template:

    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    100 tactics
    100 Fishing
    100 Meditation
    100 Resist Spells
    80 Chivalry
    (will sometimes substitute 100 Inscription for one of the other GM skills)

    Only wears skill-boosting equipment when using a mage-weapon bow. suit is just a point or two shy of all-70s, with max LMC and LRC, and 2/6 FC/FCR. (though the last part is moot if I cast Protection, such as when I go fishing - those sea serpents chain-cast level 1 spells so fast you sometimes can't cast without protection)


    (and yes, she's hell on wheels with a mage weapon - gets more DPS with a weapon than with spells against some peerless, in group hunts, and saves her mana for EoO, consecrate, summons and rezzing/cross-healing others)

    I have a Fisher/Mage but really prefer the Fisher/Archer/Pally Here's mine:
    100 Anatomy
    110 Archery (14 on bracelet)
    110 Focus
    100 Healing
    110 Tactics
    110 Chivalry (10 on ring)
    100 Fishing

    Stat, some on items:
    100 Str
    101 Dex
    59 Int

    Using the Horselord bow, it is an elemental and reptile slayer. Not the most damage but for fishing it is great.
     
  13. Agreed with the above post. Archer/Pali Fisherman is tight. With LRC suit and Horselord, perfect combination.

    Oh, Basara, I hadn't considered her gear lol I'm a right noob again! (Plus I don't I understand half the initials either :)) Oceania is so empty at the times I play. Finding good ideas is about impossible. Prices are crazy on what there - well probably not crazy but seem crazy because I've been gone. I used to think I had money... hehe.

    I'm considering moving shards but would be sad to leave all the rest of my toons behind!

    Will alternate I think between my mage and my new archer/fisher (Horselord?! gotta look that up!) and see which I can handle better. Thanks everyone for the great input!
