    well, for farming them (excluding 'treasure chest arties') you are looking for things you can handle without a clenched tooth stare and sweat on your keyboard and such. I would suggest paragons since it doesnt' seem much like you are set up to 'farm' miasma or swoop or the other ml bosses. Get a soulseeker on your dexxer and go to honesty gate, run north through the mountain pass (short 2 screen run) then east across the bridge. In the woods there along the road ettins spawn quite madly, and you should get paragons fairly often. Explore other scenarios where your mage may be able to EV and invis other spawn points. I've never really tried to 'farm' minor arties. They just happen.

    btw if you are doing this in an attempt to get points, go after exodus overseers N through cave next to honor. by tents. 2 overseers equals one minor arty worth of points, as the power crystals they drop are 250 points each and they drop them all the time. I've farmed exodus minions in exodus dungeon, as they drop 2 quite often, but that sounds a bit much for the info you've given on characters. You would know what you can handle.

    Which kind of artifacts do you mean?

    The term major/minor is, I would argue, outmoded. "Soul Seeker" is considered a minor artifact, yet a lot of people use it for some pretty high-end PvM.

    Do you mean the Paragon Artifacts from Ilshenar? If so....well, it sounds like you're a dexer. I, as a dexer, have problems with the high-end paragons that can give you the best arti drop rate.

    Maybe others are better than I and can solo, say, a paragon balron or a paragon succubus. But I, personally, can't.

  5. Your meleer looks like he should be able to handle Cyclopian Warriors, and possibly Titans, which both have a decent drop rate of both paragon chests and minor arties. The best place in Ilsh for them is out the Honesty moongate, then hang a right. There is a cave/dungeon entrance on the other side of the river. As soon as you go inside there are a bunch of Cyclops, along with Ettins and a couple of Titans that spawn in there. If you get a paragon, the tunnel that leads from the entrance to the main area is a great place to do your running around in. The mage could probably take Miasma fairly easily, but you'd have to cast your EV's in the entrance area, then run in and lure Miasma out, if for nothing else than to have a place that you can have the time to loot before the next one spawns. Miasma spawn pretty fast, and you never have time to loot the whole corpse before another appears.

    I am told that the "Samurai Vampire" template, very similar to the warrior template you already have, is very good for high-level PvM.

    I'll leave it to others to fill in the details.

    I suspect that even if they nerf this template, the most they'll do is nerf the ability to turn into Vampire form using items, then drop your Necromancy back down and remain in the form. You appear to have necromancy as a part of your template full-time, and thus this ain't a concern for you.

    First obviously.....Before you turn your swordsman into a Paragon hunter, max it out. Grind your way up as far as you can go.

    Then....Get your best gear, make sure it's insured, go into Vampire (and not Wraith) form, and try a paragon balron near the Chaos Shrine. See how it goes!

    That doesn't sound like much fun. Personally, I use paragon hunting as a way to train my skills.

    There you go; sorry.

    However, in fairness to myself, here is your original post, to which I was responding,

    and I see no mention there of Siege.

    Why post in a Forum of general interest something that relates, exclusively, to a particular shard? And then only say so after you've already gotten a reply?

    stop posting in UHall people hate us here, you will get nothing but grief after they find out you are the dirty cousin, now listen


    red mages, quantity over quality, they spawn fast and you can kill them just as fast so you get more paragons,

    as far as luck, a little luck is just as good as none

    If I find you holding arties I will take a count to get them. I like to stay overloaded, insta-bank(clever use of game mechanics)

    if you run back to the bank when full of gold you can pull 15k every 15 minutes and 1 minor every hour off red mages, this is what I do,
    BUT it seems all I get is the lolo lute and the mage bracelet thing

    now get out there , watch your back, and for gods sakes quit using the word F*** in vent , LOL

    It may be a bit below your level, but you could also try outside Compassion.
    Ratman archers, Ratman mages and Brigands. More of an open area too so you would have more space to manuever if need be.

    North of Spirituality there is the Harpy nest area. Good for Stone Harpies, and regulars. Farm a few feathers too.

    Westish coming out of Spirit there are the Rats isnt' it? in that village type thing. More spawn there is the more chance of a para showing up.

    The Titans, Cyclops and Ettins is a good spot. But it is a bit closed in if company shows up.

    Arties are pretty much a shard wide thing. Only his reason for wanting them perhaps is shard specific.

    First off bro, post in our forums. Most of these guys will treat you like **** because you play Siege. The arties your after the most are dropped by the named monster ie. Swoop, Gnaw, Coil, those creatures. Your after fey legs, aegis of grace , totem of the void. (I assume). Your best bet on a dexxer would be to lure everything out of Gnaws cave and try to kill him. They made swoop much harder, so he'd probably tear you a new one. With just a small amount of luck you should get plenty or arties off Gnaw.

    If your after Heart of the lion (which is harder to get) I'd go to ish and kill demons or lich lords somewhere, the paragons drop the hearts.
    You'll get 300k a piece for human fey's, totems and hearts so it's worth your time.

    Yeah he's after the Totem of the void and Defense chance items. They sell really well on Siege seeing as how when we die we lose it all. So those items are in high demand.

    Just like everything and everyone on these forums you can't believe everything you read.

    I rather take offense at the comment about Uhall hating Siege. This is not true in any way, shape or form. Siege poster trying to martyr themselves is quite unbecoming.

    There are many reason people post against Siege posts and everyone damn well knows why. 1 out of 5 posts that have nothing to do with Siege have a "This is not on Siege" or "Come to Siege" in them. Numerous posts about how the other shards are easy or how people don't know what UO is meant to be. The holier than thou attitude. Ad nauseum.

    For the record Hollywood there are plenty of people here that actually play Siege but don't care for it's clicky community that is so great.

    As for your question: My favorite way to farm arties is to grab a couple mage friends and head down to blood dungeon and kill succubus paras. Throw down a batch of EV's and collect the artis. There is no disadvantage to have others with you. With paras everyone can get their artis from the same para.
