    Is it important to lock Karma? or will neutral or positive karma on a nerco mage hurt?

    What benefits are there for negative karma?

    From www.uoguide.com/karma:

    Karma is also integral the Necromancer's calling. Negative karma can increase the effectiveness of certain necromatic arts. One of the creatures that can be summoned by the Necromancy spell Summon Familiar is the Shadow Wisp. A Shadow Wisp so summoned will regenerate mana for the Caster and those friendly to the caster only if they have a negative karma. Plainly stated, in such instances a Dread Lord will receive more mana than a Sinister Lord. In September of 2005, Publish 36 added a new Item Property, that of Increased Karma Loss, which grants a higher rate of karma loss for those casting Necromancy spells. Currently, Increased Karma Loss is only found on the Necromancy spellbook, the Ossian Grimoire.

    Downside is that blue monsters will attack you. If you want low karma, lock it, build fame to lord, then cast wither/lich form a few times. You'll be dread lord in under an hour.

    Yep get that Karma as low as possible to get the most out of your Necromancy spells!
    Karma doesn't affect Magery in any way so get Dread asap!

    You know the ankhs at shrines? When you click them, you have two options: tithe gold and lock karma.
