[Magery] PvP Mage - SW or necro

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by Goodoljoe, Jun 25, 2009.

    Hello,

    Im trying to build a template for pvp.My template should look something like this:

    120 mage
    120 med
    120 eval
    120 wrestle
    120 resist
    120 ???

    I know necro is efective but with this build i cannot afford to raise SS and necro very high so may as well not use it all.I was thinking spellweave for pixies and allure a orc brute or something to help,also WoD can come in handy at spawns/peerless,but this char is primarily aimed at PvP.How viable do you think this is? Should I dump the idea and just drop wrestle per say and fit 105 necro and 120 SS or so,and then use a mage wep(like staff of pyros or magi,but cant chug...).What do you think?Any advice?

    Thanks

    i'd drop resist and use apples/boxes and go for necro+ss

    to be able to deal decent amount of damage with SW, you need to have 4+ arcanists and recharge your circle time to time.

    I agree with Rouss, Spellweaving is a pain because to maximise your gains your going to want your +6 arcane circle (4 other Arcanists)

    I do enjoy the Necro Mage .

    I play one on a regular basis, 120 Mage. Eval, Resist, Med, Necro, SS, rest in focus. I use Crystaline ring and 1 handed -20 mage weapon allowing me to chug.

    If you can't get that type of weapon then try the suggestion above and drop Resist and use boxes.
    Chugging pots is so important these days in PVP you can't really afford to have both hands free if using a mage weapon for defense because you'll be disarming all the time to chug setting you up for alot of hits.

    nah

    you cant have 0 resist cos of poison, curses etc

    ye, you can eat apples and chug pots but that requires 0 sec reaction or scripting which is just dishonest

    Necro for sure.

    I play 2 necros, 1 in factions and 1 not in factions.

    My faction Template:

    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    120 Mage
    100 Necro
    110 Spirit Speak
    100 Scribe
    50 Med

    I use Orni, Crystalinne Ring, RBC, Fey Leggings, Folded Steel Reading Glasses, Bloodwood Spirit(Necro Totem).

    Plus some awesome Arms, gloves and gorget.

    I have 56 DCI. 15 MR. 40 LMC. Max HPI. This template is definately fun to play, the extra damage on a necro is so deadly.


    My Non-Faction Temp:


    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    120 Mage
    105 Necro
    120 Spirit Speak
    120 Med

    But Im thinking of going:

    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    120 Mage
    100 Necro
    110 Spirit Speak
    100 Anatomy(for defensive Wrestle. Disarm Sucks Balls)
    50 Med

    But finding the suit for this is difficult.

    personally, i woudlnt use the wrestle.
    I would get a mage wep, maybe the crystalline ring and inquis(im saying that as if thats easy lol)

    Then i would have my temp set up like this, which is what im working to right now

    120 Mage
    120 eval
    120 resist
    120 ss
    115-110 necro
    105-110 med

    I think that would work.

    ive tested it on test and it worked great

    Clog has the right idea w/ Anatomy.. disarm/moving shot spam is way too common. I don't even use my mage weapon anymore. You get 3 of these speedhacking disarm/archers on you and you're toast with a mage weapon.

    I'd use the faction crystalline ring and go:

    100 Magery (120 w/ Crystalline)
    120 Eval
    120 Resist
    100 Anatomy
    105 Necro
    120 Spirit Speak
    55 Meditation

    Drop to 115 what you need to for scroll purposes, but if you drop Eval to 115 make sure you go 105 anatomy to keep 120 defensive ability.

    That way is probably the best way for factioners. but yeah im sick and tired of all the disarm dexxers around. I spend more time healing and chasing my tail trying to get the weap back on to give me more defense but as soon as it gets back on its disarmed.

    On the chars i use without resist, a single hotkey to chug a pot doesn't take long, same to eat an apple.
