    Sorry for my absence from this forum lately. I just finished moving my family from California to Colorado. We're getting settled and the internet just got installed today.

    It looks like pub 82 is hitting the streets soon and things are finally settling out with the pub 81 changes. I plan to finish my sampire's new studded suit with 55 LMC and 50 DCI and then show pics. I am also starting work on warrior how-to guides for:

    - Sampire
    - Wraith-Thrower and Wraith-Archer

    I'll start with those two and then move onto others. Certainly, this will be a community effort. If you are so inclined to help drafting sections, please let me know. I'll act as an editor/author. Pics of great suits, weapons, or awesome peerless/boss kills are certainly helpful to show the capabilities of the templates. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Good luck for your new home :)

    As a returning player, i don't have much to offer to the guides, but i am looking forward to read them when they will be ready!

    Thanks in advance!

    I believe we need a general guide that explains in details combat, combat related skills, weapons and popular special moves, armor types and mods, usefull artifacts, solo boss killing difficulties and tricks.

    Not to hijack, but I'd be interested in knowing what people were able to solo with a minimum suit / skill set. For example, I trained my swords on a char from 100-120 by soloing the Rikktor spawns in Destard (while wearing an ancient samurai helm). This might provide suitable challenges for players as they develop their characters.

    This is exactly where the "How-To" should start. Discuss what skills are required and how they interact to create a basic warrior. Discuss how stats effect mana, swing speed, healing, and how the combination of stats and skill points effect your total damage cap of 300. You need to understand the basic building blocks of how a warrior works, and then build on a sound foundation.

    There also need to be some guidelines on how a basic warrior is defined, so someone totally new to the forum will understand the terminology. A warrior has a set of basic skills that qualifies it as a fully playable character. There are Samurai, Paladin, and Necromancy templates that have a set of basic skills that make them a fully playable character. A warrior with Necromancy, Paladin, or Samurai skills intermixed are hybrids and this becomes real confusing to people when they see a template referred to as a Paladin that has Bushido.

    Thanks, Katrena
