Noob Samurai weapon skill question.

    Hey, I'm coming back to the game after a few years, so the answer to this question is probably really obvious to everyone except me.

    I want to run this template for PvM:

    120 swords
    120 parry
    120 bushido
    100 tactics
    100 anatomy
    90 healing
    70 chiv

    However, I have an old warrior character with maxed Fencing as opposed to Swords, and I was wondering if this template would work just as well if I elected to keep Fencing instead. I was also wondering if it would be viable with Maces.

    Thanks!

    I am not 100% sure. But I think it works. I do know I run that template with mace, and I like it just fine.

    Yes it won't matter what weapon skill you use. You are all set since you have the 90+ tactics skill requirement for weapon specials that changed while you have been away.

    It works very vell with fencing,

    The leafblade will be the weapon of choice for you, with feint(half damage for 4seconds...i think) and armour ignore.

    Cool, and would I be correct in thinking that the recommended stat layout for this template in pvm (unmodified by stat scroll or gear) would be 100 str/ 100 dex/ 25 int?

    I don't give stat advise because simply you can get many things from modifications on your armor, clothing, talismans, etc. As long as you end up with over 100 STR after getting cursed and a mana pool of at least 60, you will do just fine.

    Since you plan on using healing, you will want overall dexterity of 140.
