    We're looking at re-naming this forum to better represent the skills it covers, ie Anatomy, Camping, Detect Hidden, Forensics, Healing, and Tracking

    Current suggestions under consideration are (in alphabetical order)
    UO Nomad
    UO Plainsman
    UO Pioneer
    UO Vagabond
    UO Wanderer

    Preferences?
    Other suggestions?

    Aren't Pioneers typically thought of as hunters and builders?

    I mean, sure, tracking falls under hunting... kinda... but a Pioneer would typically be killing the quarry when it's found.

    As for the others, well, they all seem very... vague.

    Shouldn't Detect Hidden go with Remove Traps?

    About the only real life profession I could think of that'd take advantage of most of the skills listed there would be a Forest Ranger.

    We could throw multiple skills into...

    UO RIP skills
    or
    UO Worthless

    ....lol? T-T

    This may be too easy, but I think it's perfect.

    UO Ranger

    includes camping, forensics, detect, track, item id, herding, taste id, etc.

    :D

    Yes, it was suggested in the other thread too, only problem is people may confuse it with taming

    The only draw back to that, and the reason it's not already on the list, is that 'ranger' is the professions title for animal lore.

    Looking at the skills list, the professional title for detect hidden is 'Scout' How about UO Scout?

    probably, Any potential 'scouts' in uo can look that up on UO.Thief :D

    We can't possibly cover all permutations, just do our best to group things under some kind of logical heading.

    UO explorer, I don't think that's used for anything else.

    oooo I like that one too!

    Maybe include Cartography and junk in there?

    sounds fun. :D
     
  14. Anatomy and Healing should both be under the Warriors forum since both skills are listed in the skill gump as combat skills.
     
  15. I vote for:
    UO Explorer
    UO Scout

    As Connor pointed out, this might be a good time to reevaluate the skill groupings in general for each forum. Anatomy and Tactics definitely go with the Warrior forum.

    Looking at the listings, Healing and Anat are listed twice, under both Warrior and Detective. :(

    As I sit in my little cabin in the woods, I find "UO Pioneer" very appealing - the word has a very "jack-of-all-trades" feel to it yo me.

    I'm liking Scout.

    Herding been dropped from the list?

    Move the FE, detect and Tracking skills into the PvP thief forum. Most people who play detectives, are either current or former thieves...la
