PvM Warrior Revamp...?

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Ansio, May 28, 2009.

    After a very long vacation from UO. I have returned. I have an old PvM character I would like to do something with. Just for running around dungeons killing solo. I used to enjoy hunting lich lords in the old days.
    Right now his template is
    Swords 120
    Parry 120
    Resist 103/120
    Anatomy 101/110
    Tactics 100
    Healing 85
    Chivalry 85

    My question is, would it be worth it drop healing and anatomy, raise tactics, resist, and add bushido? Or is there something I am totally missing, and I should do something totally different? Is healing and anatomy necessary now with chivalry?

    Thanks for any help and advice.

    It is not absolutely necessary but most people who don't have healing and what have you run in vamp form by having 99 necro or higher. They usually complement that by having as high of bushido skill that they are able to.

    I really do not want necro, I am just wanting to make a bushido character for PvM.

    Okay then so something like this:

    Weapon
    Parry (ties into bushido)
    Bushido (ties into parry)
    tactics
    healing
    anatomy
    chivalry

    Keep your weapon where it is. Keep parry where it is. Now you will need to make some adjustments depending on your playstyle. Drop resist and carry items. Keep resist and make adjustments to other areas (very difficult depending on your gear/jewelry).

    Tactics need at least 90 for specials. You get an evasion bonus by having GM tactics and GM anatomy coupled with Bushido at least at GM.

    Chivalry drop some. Can depending on your playstyle drop it by 10 to 25 points. Depends on your jewelry. 85 is nonetheless pretty high for PvM. Not needed.

    And last but not least, fit in bushido somehow. GM will give you 13% criticals and legendary gives you a 20% chance. Everything else read the FAQ. Perfection and honor are important concepts if you're going to pack bushido around at any useful level.

    As my warrior stands now, does he stand a chance to be able to do anything higher level? Given the gear and weapon. How important is resist in PvM now?

    Thanks

    Well for areas where you could get blood oathed by higher-end mobs, you'll regret not having it. Can pretty much call it dead...

    As your warrior stands now, you would want to get enough +item skill in healing in order to stand at the minimum of 90. 90 healing will ensure that you don't fail on a heal.
