Seeking Advice for high hp warrior build.

    Am looking to build a tank with as much HP as possible. Does anyone have any equipment suggestions? Thanks. =)
     
  2. The black Doom bear mask (can't recall the name until I've had more coffee) and the Voice of the Fallen King would be a good start. Primer on Arms is another good item since it has +1 Str on it (same with Conjurer's Trinket). Other than that, I'd say find crafted armor with +HP on it, along with an Ecru Citrine ring and Greater Str potions.

    I find using a CC Reading Glasses Of The Arts gauntlets of nobility and voice of the fallen king and im over 150 hp. Its not easy to get the resists to 70s but that is a great start!

    (edit) dont forget the braclet of health!

    Also I belive the max hp increace is 25, Thats aside from str. GL

    There is a cap of +25 HP. Shoot for that on your armor, and be sure to add as much str as possible afterwards. You can still gain more than 25 hp if you add str.

    Well to be honest i'm looking to max out DCI, HCI, dex, in addition to 150 hp. =p

    Gold isn't a problem.

    Just not sure how realistic that is so i'm seeking advice.

    I'll also be using a shield for +13 hci +15 dci FC1. I'm not making a sampire, already have one. Am building one with 100+ chivalry for holy light.

    Well the real question then is:

    what jewelry are you planing on using?

    If its 15/15 hci/dci stuff then you can forgo the leggings of bane fey leggings and ageis of grace route and go fo straight resist with other mods. You might look into going over the 45 cap for pvp(hld/hla-+25). Then you will need spirit of the totem agieas of grace fey or bane or all 3. Leaving you with a major need for HPI on the armour.

    It is very feasable!

    (note) If you have bushido you might be apt to forgo any hci in favor of lightning strike!

    Crimson Cincture is +10
    Fey Legs have + 6 (and 20 dci)
    Spirit of totem is +20 STR and 15 hci

    That leaves you +9 Hitpoints that you need to get on the rest of your armor to hit the +25 cap.

    From your sheild, fey legs, and quiver of infinity you are at 40 DCI so you would just need a little on your bracelet. Which means that free's up DCI from your ring for Ring of vile which has dex, so you could put more normal stat points to STR.

    Ring of vile, Spirit of totem, and your shield puts you at 43 hci.

    There is also one of those replica robes that gives +5 hit points which would mean you just need +4 more from armor.

    Not sure where the information was gotten from, but the hit point increase cap is 30, not 25.

    http://uo.stratics.com/content/arms-armor/itemproperties.php#hpi

    then goto hit point increase.

    You can basically have 5 on all your main pieces and that will give you 30 right there.

    Understandable if you start with 125 strength but...you won't have 125 HP from having 125 strength...naturally.

    97 STR for example will give you 98 HP. While 125 STR will give you 112 HP.


    So, if you are looking for as you say, a very high HP warrior build, you need these 3 things:

    1. HP increase. Cap on items is 30. HP increase is an item property.
    2. STR increase. More STR will give you more HP. STR is based off of a stat cap the same as DEX and INT though, so you won't be able to exceed 125 natural.
    3. Enhance potion ring and/or talisman...which won't exceed 50%.

    You can use the enhance potion ring/talisman to temporarily get higher HP than what you would have naturally.

    From my testing, you won't exceed 150 so perhaps why other people though of the 25 deal. + 25 hit point on properties though would leave you room unless you had already capped your STR out at 150.

    You can use items like gauntlets of nobility, titan's hammer, spirit of the totem, and the voice of the fallen king if you need items with + STR. You can use crimson cinture and bracelet of health for examples...if you needed items with + HP, in addition to your armor.

    Cap out your STR as high as you can manage then fill in with + HP with the rest. Adjust other stats as needed. Use ring to balance things out better.

    Well.. here's what i've come up with so far.
    My priority is to max hp first, then dex, then HCI and DCI. 70's resist max is a must of course.

    Here's the results:

    magic reflect on
    mace and shield reading glasses, +10 str, 5 dex, resists: 25,10,10,10,10
    crimson cincture +10 hp, 5 dex
    valorite shield +15 DCI, +13 HCI, FC1, 4,1,3,3,3
    fey legs +6 hp, +20 DCI, 12,8,7,4,19
    Jackal's collar +15 dex 5,23,17,3,2
    gauntlets of nobility +8 str, +20 DI, 18,3,1,20,3

    Barbed armor sleeves: +5 hp, 15,7,6,19,21
    Barbed armor tunic: +5 hp, 18,18,6,5,15

    Ring 7 str 7 dex 30 DI (until i get better)
    bracelet 8 str, 9 hci, 3 FCR, 12 cold resist (until i get better)


    Str 117, Dex 113, int 25 (255 total)
    After equipment: str 150, dex 145, int 25
    HP mod: +25

    35 DCI, 22 HCI. Total resists 70,70,70,70,75

    I'm sure this could be fine tuned some more.. any suggestions?
     
  10. Find a better ring & brace combo. A 2 & 3 combo ring/brace is pretty low end. You need to find something with HCI & DCI. LMC wouldn't hurt either.

    I forgot to ask but are you just doing PvM or PvP as well? In any event it is pretty balanced. I don't see that much that needs refining aside from the jewelry. Pretty nice shield though :) Those are hard to come by any more.

    check out the resilient bracer. Its got DCI resist spells and HPR and more. Youll lose some stats but it will get you close to cap DCI and increase your phys resist by 20 making the suit easier to build!
