So I am new to spellweaving, but I think I have a pretty good understanding of it. I am having trouble picking my template, so I figured I would post them here and see what people thought, and try out the more favored of the two. (I am hoping to be more of a Doom player with this character, just to give you an idea of what I am going for) Here goes! Template 1 - Arcanist Archer 100 Archery (with hunters headdress, so it will probably be 115 with a powerscroll cause I am cheap like that) 100 Tactics 100 Anatomy 90 Healing (100 with enhanced bandages) 120 Spellweaving (once I get the scroll anyways) 100 spirit speak (110 with talisman) 65 chivalry 40 necromancy For a total of 715 skill points (8 months until I am 4 years) With this template, I was planning on running Wraith form for the mana leech, and with archery to help me, I could leech all the mana I needed, and use curse weapon to leech some life if I needed. I would probably send out a natures fury or two before attacking anything, so i shouldnt need to leech health. Still have no idea on how I am going to do stats/equipment, so any input there would be wonderful. Template 2: Spellweaving Bard-ola 120 music 120 provocation 120 discordance 110 magery 120 weaving 100 spirit speak and a few extra points somewhere (any suggestions?) This guy would focus mostly on using summons and provocation to kill monsters. I would use wraith form for the mana leech i could get off of word of death (assuming I would have a particularly high focus before heading out) but I havent really messed with spellweaving, so that is just a shot in the dark. Stats - probably max int, will probably go with a human character for the mana regeneration, then run a 100 lrc/mr suit to help with the lack of med/focus. Dex will probably be 10 and the rest in STR, unless I need dexterity for something? Well, go ahead and tear them apart! I am ready for some criticism Hopefully my understanding of the skill is what I think it is, but I will blame any problems with these templates on ignorance Thanks for your time!
