Hail I thought I would share my PvP dexxer template. Perhaps it will inspire. Perhaps you will suggest some improvements. in any case, I should explain that I play this on Test (I enjoy casual gaming these days). As a result, I have access to some powerful artifacts (e.g. The Gladiator's Collar) but have to go without other standard items (e.g. Heat of the Lion). Also, I'm up against people changing skills on the fly, etc. Skills (700 skill cap; some + skill items) Swords 120 Tactics 120 Bushido 120 Chivalry 70 (60 real) Anatomy 60 Meditation 100 Resist 120 Med and Anat mgiht change a little. My concern is getting my damage high enough for 35 AI's every time. With 60 Anat, it's close. Stats 125 STR 10 DEX 120 INT With stat boosts I end up with around 140/20/140, HPI near cap, stamina around 50/60 and a mana pool of 160+. Suit is 4/6, Max DCI, HCI, DI and LMC, 5+ MR and some stat boosts. If you are interested, the items are Sign of Order, Stormgrip, Gladiator's Collar, Totem, Rune Beetle, Fey Leggings, Void, Orny, 1/3 ring with DCI, arms with MR and high fire and poision. I'm sure there are better set-ups but this is a strong one using the Artifacts that you are given on Test. Main weapons are a Katana and a Bok, on fast-switch, each with SSI, DI, HLD, HCI and Lightning. The main strength is that the template uses a 'mage' mana pool/stat set-up while stacking combat skills, high med, MR and LMC to allow me to chain a dozen AI's or so. It's not a complicated template - my approach is to AI/special until I have them just below mid-health and then fast-switch to a Bok and hope I can get a Nerve Strike off. If so, I can revert to an AI/Bleed to finish them off. It relies on RNG of course. Defensively, it's all about 4/6 Close Wounds for 35-40 HP and confidence on the run. Again, with the massive mana supply, you can heal indefinitely. Weaknesses? Well I have a shield so not best placed to pot. With 4/6 Chiv this is okay, but changing the suit to allow potting could only be a good thing, if possible. I have low Karma and don't get the most out of the heals but that is a simple fix. The are more offensive and more defensive templates, but this does both quite well. As I said, I play solo on Test on a Samsung netbook so I have my work cut out for me but I do okay. You are hitting for 35 (AI) every shot while you are in mana (which is most of the time) and can make some very quick kills when RNG is with you. The trick is deciding when you NS - you don't want to do too much AI damage as they will offscreen.
