    5. Skills I have
    Fencing 120
    Tactics 101 (115)
    Anatomy 100 (115)
    Bushido 105 (120)
    Parrying 100 (120*)
    Chivalry 95
    Necromancy 99

    Total skills: 771/755 depending on jewels
    100 Anatomy can be replaced with Resists/Carto/Lock/Mining from soulstones.

    6. Stats I have (255 cap)
    STR 120 (135)
    DEX 110 (120)
    INT 25 (30)
    142 HP, 161 Stam, 90 Mana
    (150 HP, 191 Stam with potions)


    With two sets of jewels I can select between damage (tactics/anatomy) and defense (parrying, EP).
    Evasion is very effective with 120 Bushido and 120 Parrying.
    With 1H weapon I can use Healing and Refresh potions. Refresh potions especially useful with this template.



    1. Armor pieces
    50-58-61-60-65; reinforced +5 phys, -5 dci (75-70-70-70-75 with boots and glasses)
    3 HPI (25 HPI with Slither, Crimson, Shroud)
    40 MI, 40 SI, 40 LMC
    35 HCI, 20 DCI

    2. Artefacts I use
    Mace&Shield, Slither, Ranger's Cloak, Shroud, Crimson, Fire Boots, Corgul's

    3. Jewels
    Ring: Tactics 14, Anatomy 15, STR 5, DCI 10, DI 22
    Bracelet: Parrying 7, Bushido 15, HCI 10, DCI 15, DI 24
    Ring: Parrying 13, DEX 1, EP 50, DCI 10, DI 23
    (I use the second ring to get EP and 120 Parrying when fighting tough bosses)

    4. Weapon
    Leafblade: Super Slayer, HML 96, HSL 40, HLA 30, DI 35
    Kryss: HML 50, HLL 70, HLA 40, HCI 10, DI 31 (for Lady Melisande)
    Kama: Super Slayer, HML 50, HLL 70, HLA 50, DI 45

    Hey Corwin,

    Could you please tell me why, theres is slight differences between your build and the template you said in another post:

    Core (694 skill points):
    Weapon 120
    Tactics 100
    Bushido 120
    Parry 60
    Resisting Spells (Anatomy) 100
    Necromancy 99
    Chivalry 95

    I have currently retrained parry to 60 as you mentioned in the guide, but already had 100 Parry so, I can have nearly identical build to yours, although havent done the rings yet, although might do it soon, I have DI and DCI in the rings to cap.

    I use, Crimosm, Mace&Shield Glasses, Mana orb with DI +15 although also have slither, spell focus sash, cloak of life, fire boots


    Bushido is not being very friendly to me, still have it in the low 50s, I dosnt go up at all fast......


    Any advice?

    There is no the best template so I posted just core (recommended) skill. There is 26 more points to distribute and you can get some skills on jewels.
    My char has 51 skills. So I can have some skills over core ones. Usually people prefer to get 120 anatomy/tactics.

    Use Confidence till 60. Use LS till 120.

    Could Bushido be left at 60 and with rings raise level? So that for example have Parry 100 and Anat/Tact 120, I am not to keen on Bushido, but seems that is a must for a sampire....

    Core (694 skill points):(Modified)
    Weapon 120
    Tactics 100/120
    Bushido 60
    Parry 100
    Resisting Spells (Anatomy) 100/120*
    Necromancy 99
    Chivalry 95

    you need 300 points in weapon+bushido+parry to get special move mana cost reduction, you have 120+60+100=280 so I suggest to add 20 more points here
    120 Bushido + 60 Parrying gives you about the same chance to block (~20%) as 60 Bushido + 120 Parry and increase effectiveness of Bushido skills.

    the real strength of bushido is Confidence when crowded and Evasion when fighting one or few tough monsters

    bushido goes up very fast when you use LS and you can use SOA to triple the rate
    I usually don't worry about bushido. I go and fight as usual but I use LS instead of AI.

    You may have (720 +14 on jewels):
    Weapon 120
    Tactics 120
    Bushido 120
    Parry 60
    Resisting Spells (Anatomy) 120
    Necromancy 99
    Chivalry 95

    It should be clarified that you get 5 mana reduction if your combined skills, weapon+bushido+parry, are between 200 and 299. With 300 combined skill, you get 10 mana reduction.

    This is great info! I heard about a whirlwind bonus, too but don't know the details. Does bushido have any other key interactions/skill levels like this?

    From UOGuide:
    Bushido Bonus
    Bushido gives a damage bonus to Whirlwind : ((# of opponents * Bushido) * (# of opponents * Bushido) / 3600) = Bonus Damage

    For example, if you are using a weapon with Whirlwind on it, and you are surrounded by 4 enemies, and have a Bushido skill of 90, the additional damage you do to each of those enemies will be 36 points of additional damage. The damage bonus is capped at 100

    Other interactions- Parry w/ Evasion- if Bushido is higher than 100.0 and Tactics/Anatomy are 100.0 or higher, then evasion has +2 second duration.
