    Ninja or Archery maybe? Then you have the option of Serpent Arrow's for archer and Shuriken's for ninja.

    There is also the infectious strike special move that uses poison.

    Nox mages throwing out deadly poison fields on mobs while doing area spells is wicked.
    For PvM at champ spawns its HIGHLY effective & nearly wipes out all 1, 2, and 3rd levels.
    My personal favorite is a combo nox mage spellweaver. Drop fields and some summons,
    arm a slayer spellbook, and start casting essence of wind(with a lvl 6 focus) and you'll be
    wondering why monsters don't respawn faster.

    My tweaked template also uses necro, runs in wraith form, & never runs out of mana.

    I found this...How does it sound?
    120 Mage (+20 mage on crystalline, -20 on mage wep) = 120
    120 Resist
    120 Eval Int
    100 Focus (+20 focus on crystalline) = 120
    120 Mystic
    80 Poison
    60 Necro

    Been out of town since Dec. 15th & haven't checked Stratics or played UO. I'll take a look at my guys exact template and let you know asap. A lot of it is in his suit if I remember correctly. Stuff like midnight bracers for the necro bonus, the talisman with spirit speak and necro bonus, and a ring with +30 skills points. He uses and orny & inquiz gloves for the casting speed since the ring is full of other stuff. Just got home so I'll try to post details soon as I can.

    In case anyone was wondering, the powder in Utah was 2 feet deep with hardly no other tracks on the mountain :) Hope everyone had an awesome Xmas and best wishes to all for an uber great New Year !
