Hi all. So I played UO way back in errr 96? (I didn't do anything exceptional other than enjoy myself and make a few friends that made the time online that much more enjoyable) I think I might be back for nostalgia... everyone always seems on the go these days in MMO's and I seem to remember a more leisurely pace in days long since past. Anyways, I will be checking out the various guides and stickies before I bombard you all with too many questions, but there was one I was hoping to get help with as I get underway: If I wanted to play some type of.. I don't know... "Ranger" character, what would you all suggest for skills? I am not too awfully concerned with an "ultimate build" although I do enjoy having strong characters. I would like to adventure across the lands and be able to be as self sufficient as possible, exploring dungeons and stopping here and there in local towns to make new friends. I know that I would like to wield a sword, and possible some type of magic, but other than that I am open to suggestions. Hehe, I have been reading a Song of Ice and Fire and feel the need for adventure! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for reading this post and any advice you all have. - Ashram P.S. Oh and what would you all suggest for a good shard for an EST player (I would probably be playing mostly evening to late night) Mainly I am looking for a shard with a great community.
