    I am returning to SP after 6 years I believe. I returned back to UO a month and half ago and been playing on atl and chessy. I am sorta depressed at how these servers have turned out; everyone acts like there 12... I could say more, but I don't need to. My char's template on SP is:

    100 macing
    100 anat
    100 tactics
    93 healing
    90 magery
    72 hiding
    60 med
    52 stealth

    Stats are 95 str, 90 dex, and 45 int. Currently logging back into this character his bank is fulled of old school silver macing weapons and regular weapons, some hides, few regs (maybe 100 of each), 2k gold, and a few pieces of newbie clothing.

    I am needing advice on what is a good template to play on sp? in both pvm and pvp.. I was thinking a stealther with some ninja (120 macing, 100 tactics, 100 healing, 100 anat, 100 hiding, xstealth, xmagery, xninja)
    x = unsure how high to raise skills. I am keeping magery so I can gate and do various other things with the magery skill and I already have it.

    My next question is I am capped at 100 because back then we had no powerscrolls. How hard is it to obtain via buying a 120 PS in macing? Should I stay macing or go swords and use the bokuto (though I would have to get bush and drop a skill in order to get this)? Is it hard to obtain a nice macing weapon on sp? Do people on SP craft there weapons or hunt monsters for them?

    Is magery worth having? Whats the pros and cons of having it on this template, or just on SP in general?

    Can someone shed some light on how to obtain gold on SP? I have NOTHING and really would like to get some gold so I can start on my journey of becoming a SP player...

    My icq is 463-038-314.

    I remember in the past of how the playerbase on SP is quite mature and friendly.. I hope it is the same today! I hate to ask for it but I have nothing so If anyone has any extra powerscrolls, spellbooks(ninja book and bush book), armor, weapons, plz don't be shy and icq me as I will greatly appreciate your help!


    *PS - seeking chuck zito and goldberg, if you know of them I need to contact them as they are old guildmates and I hear they play this server :)


    Thanks for your time, and if your not busy plz write back!

    a few more questions I thought of...

    What items are a must to always carry around when roaming around SP? What are some items a pvp must always have equipped as well? Normal shards you have the quiver with dci, is this blessed like on the other shards or no? Can one obtain blessed talismans? owned by noone.. etc..

    What places are best for combat besides at a champ spawn... is there alot of gate fighting? People still do organized field fights?

    Heh, lots of questions I see.

    Based on your current skills, the quickest and best template to build up would be a bushido parry macer. Something like:

    120 mace
    120 parry
    120 bushido
    90-100 tactics
    90-100 heal
    80-100 anat
    rest in med

    You can swap out parry for resist if you like. I'd say resist is slightly better for pvm, parry definitely for pvp. Also if you want to pick up 60 chivalry, very helpful for pvm.

    stealthers are often used for pvp, but aren't very effective pvm. Didn't realize the part you said about keeping magery, so you can swap the skills above around a bit to keep your magery. 115 scrolls are very easy to acquire, they usually sell for 50k, 120's a bit harder, usually 1+ mil.
    Magery isn't that great. Nice to gate around with, but I've lived on this shard for 5 years without ever gating. Swords is better than macing, but macing is still nice - no point retraining for it right now.

    pros and cons of magery - pros, you can gate. Cons, everything else. It gimps your template.

    spellbooks (ninja and bushido) are easy to obtain, just kill a ninja and samurai/ronin in Tokonu. They carry them.

    Making gold is easy, shear sheep and sell cloth!

    Must items to carry around, depends on your template. No insured items so it's not like everyone has the quiver with DCI, but those rich folk do run with it.

    Some gate fighting, people still fight, lots in Luna usually.

    Hope that helps for starters. PM/ICQ me if you have any more questions.
