    Do you have the Stygian Abyss expansion? If so, my favorite place to farm is the mini-champs in the Abyss.

    Yeah, some of the mini-champs are more difficult than others. That particular one isn't the easiest, hehe. Nevertheless, aside from the considerable gold on the creatures, the essences and other ingredients (e.g., demon claws, goblin blood, etc.) sell for quite a bit. Moreover, there is a chance for artifact drops there. Using my necro/mage/tamer, I have made tens of millions from looting gold and essences in the Abyss.

    We've been talking about it here: http://vboards.stratics.com/uo-warrior/253772-popular-pvm-pvp-templates.html.

    Basically, where you have eval and possibly resist, my template has necro and spirit speak. I would say that the mage/tamer is more versatile, but the necro/mage/tamer has an advantage at champs due to wraith form and area attacks. Nevertheless, I think that your template should be just fine.

    What champ can you do with tamer there?

    Went there - undead (no chance, skelly mages and liches = few flamestrikes and i'm dead, then pet dies)

    Tried the giant spider there, but some Sammy got offended that i dared take part in the champ spawn and started to fill the screen with abuse !!

    There are two parts of the champ: the spawn and the champion.

    You can work out most of the spawns (but for sleeping dragon, the two in abyss and maybe twisted glade) but the only champion you can solo as a tamer without going completely mad is barracoon (ratmen).

    Mephitis (spiders) is probably the worst.

    For the undeads just try not to get too many spellcasters on your greater dragon (as we lizardmen say: take the dog if you want to play fresbee): note that to advance the spawn you don't need to engage ten mobs at the same time, you just have to keep killing and the undeads go down very fast if you take them one per time. Also try to not get caught in the middle of the battle field when the spawn goes to the next level because with lichs death is granted if you're on feet.

    Wear a suite with good resistances and a mage weapon if you can, don't be afraid of jumping in the gang to use bandages on your scaled friend and hide a lot.

    I just do a round robin--start with fire, move to goblin, second fire, undead, acid, then head back down and restart the circuit. Undead is a little harder, because my cu does cold damage and my wither does cold damage, which most of the undead have high resistance to. The other ones go pretty fast, though.

    Just take your time. Once you get to the upper level mobs and renowned creatures, lead one away at a time.
