Old player wanting to return but question on pvp template

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by hukor, Aug 18, 2010.

    I would like to play but have no time to farm.
    I used to do alright.

    So since I want to come back to Siege can anyone think of a template that is solid without a ton of items.
    I would like to play this but don't know how it will do on mana.
    120 swords
    120 bushido
    120 mystic
    90 tactics
    100 focus
    120 ss
    60 necro

    I know that's 10 too many but I might be able to imbue jewelry with my buddies account.

    I know I should stay out of this thread but gotta ask one thing.

    Wouldn´t 120 focus/100 SS be better than 100 focus/120 SS for more mana and more myst power? Or does 120 SS give a benefit to 60 necro over 100 SS?

    well I wanted 120 ss for max pain spike omen and blood oath.
    120 bushido for nerve strike and heals

    what's the draw back of having 100 myst

    I might have to keep just enough bushido to be decent maybe 100 and max out focus.

    You'll need at least 107.5 mystic for 100% successful spell plague.

    That template is awesome, actually.

    Definitely run 120 Focus over 120 spirit though. You'll definitely want to spelltrigger bombard.

    I'd run:

    Spirit of the Totem
    Orny
    0/3 hci/dci ring
    bless a bokuto
    faction order shield
    fey legs
    RBC
    imbued gorget/gloves/sleeves
    primer

    I'd run a cleaver too to compliment spellplague ticks. bleed/poisonstrike/painspike/netherbolt spams will do nicely.

    Plague nervestrike hailstorm spike trigger would be pretty awesome too.

    I dont see a problem with that temp. The problem I see is being able to easily equip that temp on siege. You need max casting, max hci, max dci, lrc, lmc, spell chan no pen weapon that isnt easy to do with a prodo suit let alone one you can lose quickly on this server. And you will prolly get chewed up to a dismount gank, which is pretty common. Unless you have a good partner with the x-healin.
    I would prolly dummy it down alittle, it looks like you are trying to do too much for siege. Keep it simple and build up.

    to answer everyone
    thank you for replying.
    I appreciate it very much.

    Huggi is right. To play it to the max it would need lmc mr hci dci casting and a few skill points.

    If I take out bushido and sub archery for swords and max out tactics.
    Use a heavy hitter or a comp for AI and maybe fill in extra skill points with anatomy or med.

    I hear cleansing winds does not remove corpse skin and I already have a all poison x-bow set up.

    Is it possible or usefull to just run full necro mystic and stack a bunch of med and focus.
    or would it be better to go with a mistic dexxer.
     
  9. hukor

    hukor Guest

    ok.
    I did some testing.
    not enough to be completely sure but I do know cleansing winds removes all necro curses.

    that sux.

    so I think I am going to drop necro and focus on just a mytic dexer.

    120 fencing
    120 mystic
    120 focus
    120 tact
    120 anat
    120 med

    I'd go 120 Resist Spells over anat.
    Just use Damage Increase to compensate.

    I guess I could go with a few things.

    maybe bushido instead of anat
    or resist or even ninja to help with dismount.

    archery for bleed disarm moving shot.

    specials get pretty mana intensive so I try to have good damage without them on a dexxer.

    I have to see what kind of output it has.

    From what i can tell the biggest complaining on prodo right now is how over powered Spell Plague is when used with nerve strike, apparantly you can do upwards of 80 damage on the first hit (10-15 weapon hit, 25 from nerve strike, 10-15 from hit spell and 30 from spell plague)so i would take swords over fencing and use a bokuto for nerve strike. Adding in ninja instead of tactics could be very interesting:-

    120 Swords
    120 Myst
    120 Resist
    120 Focus
    120 Bushido
    120 Ninja

    Even if the deathstrike doesn't hit for much it's still an extra chance to proc the spell plague damage.

    And ninja gives you animal form to get away from the dismount gank

    Ah, is that recent change or did i just forget that? Can't remember if i had tactics when running ns/ds ages ago, do you need to have 120 or is a lower number enough?

    You only need 90 to NS.

    @ Revo

    ill post it here but im sure you will hear it before you read this.

    tactis is required to use any special move including nerve strike. bushido affects the chance of a successful strike. it has a high success chance even at 90 bushido.

    it does a little more damage than AI but will not go off if someone is frozen or casting.

    death strike uses stealth and hiding as damage modifiers.
    if you stac more than one death strike you can do up to 60 damage but it hits only once.

    most people only have room for tactics and bushido
    or ninja hide stealth.
    with new +skill stealth items its possible to get a lot of points on a production shard suit.

    I went on test center and it is possible to get good damge from a nerve strike spell plauge. I was thinking about using parry to try to counter that. I was pretty laggy so it wasn't a good test but I will try again.

    the idea is to cast SP and use quick damage to set off the damage ticks.
