Resist

    I'm Ole' school. Back from the days when you couldn't leave town without being attacked and little blue tents were everywhere.

    That being said, I still carry resist on all my characters.

    I'm digging out my old swordsman and making a samurai. Is resist necessary on todays samurai? I play pvm and pvp. Is it necessary in either?
     
  2. For PvM, I consider resist completely optional. The only thing I lose by not having resist is the time it takes for paralyze to break. Orange petals or vampire form work well against poison and paladins have a remove curse spell that is great.

    The same could apply for PvP until someone realizes that you have no resist. Even though there are ways to break paralysis, I prefer to have resist, as it lowers the preparation time for fighting a great deal. I would say that with practice, resist isn't really needed, but as a starting PvPer, I wouldn't go without it.

    On the other hand, I'm the type of player who avoids PvP when I can (not always possible as I do the occasional champ), so I may not be the best person to input on that note.

    None of my samurai (I'm up to 3 now, a wraith, a vampire and a normal) have resist.

    When you use resist what do you switch out on your soul stone?

    120 swords
    120 parry
    120 bush
    120 anat
    120 tactics
    85 chiv
    25 necro

    and have stoned 120 resists for when I do guant.
     
  8. For both PVE, I have found that RS is not necessary.

    When I duel a mage, I have to be weary of getting para-fielded, but a trapped box will solve that.
    A well timed evade will solve any combo that is attempted on you; throw in pots, healing, and confidence, and you should be fine.

    The problems I have are managing everything.

    If you're curious about my template it's now: 120- Bush/Parry/Fencing, 100-Anat/Heal/Tact, 60-Focus.

    well I would suggest trunks that you drop tactics and anatomy from 120 each to 100 each. There isn't a huge difference between the 2, and you'll save 40 points for something else.

    Just use the weapon calclator to figure the damage difference between having 120/120 tactics/anatomy and 100/100 tactics/anatomy, there is only a miniscule difference.

    I really have a hard time standing next to him with a group, I can't imagine sole!

    How do you manage those darn puddles?
     
  11. Connor is almost done with the remake on his template...

    Only a few more Chiv to go and a couple of Anatomy points and it's off to Travesty.

    Okay, I haven't been keeping up - working too many hours. What is your new template? Skills and stats, please!
     
  13. This is the template:

    120 Swords (For the use of radiant scimitar)
    120 Tactics
    120 Anatomy
    120 Parry
    120 Bushido
    35 Necro
    80 Chivalry

    Str 100
    Dex 125
    Int 25
     
  14. If I may be so bold?

    Where did your healing go? OK, the answer to that is obvious, but the second question, which may help budding sampires choose their own template, is why?

    I know why I dropped healing, but I run a wraith, which is a whole different story.

    He's leeching more through the extra damage, which lessens the need for healing and making it almost useless. That is the same template I've been running on my soloer, the only time I ever change it is for Paroxysmus.

    Exactly. This is the template that uotrunks uses, and is the one I was trying to figure out all this time. He's back now, and after the initial hiya's, I made sure to find out what that template was. [​IMG]

    I haven't had a chance to test it out yet, but it's going to be very soon. I need 3 more points in Chiv and I'm ready to head to Travesty. I'm still failing a little too often on EoO, and don't want to go in until I can cast it more reliably. Other than that, I've gotten the Anatomy to 120 now, so it will be very soon. Hopefully the upcoming event will help me get to where I need to be.
