[Magery] Mage Weapon + Eval/Anatomy Question

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by Gunga_Din, Jul 26, 2011.

    Say my Mage has 100 in Anatomy + Eval Int and is using a Mage Weapon. Does the defense stack? Dodge from Anat+Eval and Weapon Def. from the Mage Weapon.

    2nd. Will tactics give a damage bonus if you don't have a weapon skill but are using a mage weapon?

    Thanks

    no. But when you were disarmed you wouldn't be freely hittable. personally if you had anat/eval just use a book or shield.

    Tactics should add to damage done by the weapon, but you still won't be able to special. I think the "best" mage weapon being used for offense would be 70fencing with a dagger and poisoning, can infectious strike people but retain 120 weapon skill for 70 points..the hard part is finding an amazing dagger mage weapon. I remember playing with a couple of guys who tried this out, but at the time nox was worthless pretty much. I am curious how it would work right now with cure pots being the way they are.

    I personally think that Anat+Eval is currently broke. Either that; or gargoyles with 50% hci is broke. With 120 parry/120 eval/100 anat, 70 dci, and 80+ dex; I get hit between 60-70% of the time by gargoyle throwers. Just sayin.

    if ana/eval is broke it happened with pub 71. otherwise it's not broke.

    i havent been playing an ana/eval char since pub 71.

    As I stated; either Gargoyles are broke; or eval/anat is.

    When I switched to 120 wrestle; gargoyles go back to hitting me about 1/2 the time instead of 7/10.

    (Again; with 120 wrestle [or 120 eval/100 anat] / 120 parry *80 dex* / 75 dci)


    Tests have been done. It sucks. :blushing:

    No offense, but I doubt you obtained enough data when doing your tests.

    You can't look at it of 7/10. It needs to be in the thousands for it to be a reliable data set.
