    Heres a thought. now that you have messed around with the 'magic' skills for PvP and thus PvM.
    How about giving us that still only use 1 mellee skill a boost?
    You know, like a mace fighter not having to rely on mana (int) or an archer not having to be an instant samurai ect?

    It's kind of daft to see a char running around with Chiv and Necro (opposing forces).
    I'm not saying its all bad now.......really i'm not.

    Just after years and years of my char running around weilding an executioners axe, it would be nice to be able to carry on doing so. (yes i can hear you all saying it...get with the times man ect.....)
    I just think were going to far from what should be acceptable. Humans no longer have weapons of their fore-fathers..now its all elvish or Tokunon blah blah blah.

    Whats wrong with just picking up your weapon and just having at it without wondering if your wearing the right outfit for the mob or got the right weap and jewels on. Hell your killing a dragon not going to a mardigras.

    Perhaps i'm just getting old and long for the days of old when 'Grouping' actually ment a group of peeps whacking a mob and laughing and chating as they ran back and forth from the nearby first-aiders and paniking when some clown lured the mob to the healers area and all hell let loose. Not like now where most in a group dont even talk, just kill and gone.

    then find a better shard to play on! I chat with lots of people i come accross and many a time theres calls for whomever wishes to come do some spawn or peerless so dont give me the arguement of people not chatting and haveing fun they still do. as for suits well i just wish that there was reason to use plate chain ext as it is now why bother when leather works best!

    To OP, do you use lumberjacking?

    Could go with:

    120 swords
    100 lumberjack
    100 tact
    120 magic resist
    90 anat (100)
    90 heal (100)
    80 chiv

    Or if you really don't want to use mana:

    120 swords
    100 lumberjack
    120 tact
    120 magic resist
    120 anat
    120 heal

    The healing skill changes are pretty nice, it's like a 2-3 poison check w/ 150 dex. For PvM, you can get by with just the healing skill a lot easier now. PvP is still hard not to use any mana/items though, heh.

    Thats actually my Template, but on newer stuff it's allmost imposible to fight without 'other' skills being used in the fight.
    Although looking at the post with fresh eyes i suppose i could of just added it to the Virtue dungeons need love thred. As thats where i still hunt alone at night.

    The pure warrior is one of the many classes that this game has lost in the transition from Ultima Online to Sampire Online.

    It was the anti-magic character par excellence and we lost it.

    Would it be possible to restore it? Of course. Do they have enough resources to do it? I doubt.

    Do they have enough knowledge of the spirit of this game to recognize its value (and the value of other classes that are pale shadows of what they used to be?). Well, i hope but there are a couple of little signs showing that they overlook some aspect of the game. Karma among the others.

    Yeah about that lol

    As you know I recently returned to the world of Sosaria, and was NOT happy that every single melee charactor I have is pretty much useless.

    I hopped on my swordswoman and went to kill swoops, like I used to..and wow...all I can say.

    Thankfully an old friend was still around and taught me the error of my ways. What once was an *uber* suit and weapon, now is pretty much equal to loot found on monsters. My hit stamina leech 42, hit lightning 44, HCI 13, DI 38 magical shortbow did 4 damage to a swoop, and I got almost one hit by the little bugger.

    What am I doing wrong? I asked...not only did the mobs get ALOT harder, but the gear that used to be more then enough, is way under sub par now.

    The learning process has been interesting, the loss of almost a million gold in insurance has made it expensive as well lol, and over and over he kept telling me...*everyone is a sampire now, it's the only way to pvm*

    Well to heck with that! I'm not putting Necro on a charactor with Chiv..it makes no sense!

    Yeah I know we have to grow and change with the times...but I'd rather just not kill swoops then sacrifice my charactor just so I can be a copy of everyone else.

    He made me a *dexxor suit* and I'm doing better...still won't kill swoops on anything but a tamer, but I can do everything else just fine. Sampires can :talktothehand:

    Damn, that makes me feel sad :( lol...the hunting alone at night part ;P.

    Hm. When I think about a pure, no mana, PvM LJ dexxer--with the new bandage changes--I think of a fairly solid defensive template, since monsters can't equip DCI/HCI and hardly any of them have HLD/HLA effects and you have a heal on the run with relatively no way of being para ganked. But the main problem with a no mana dexxer is a lack of offense (although a lack of parry could still be a hurdle without a suit w/ 45 DCI). No consecrate weapon or enemy of one to add damage, no honor or LS.

    What about if LJ above 50 allowed a player to honor in PvM? No one is going to stop at 50 most likely, but Bushido has it set at 50. Could be another way to get the virtue up without needing to have any Bushido skill, plus it wouldn't effect PvP (except pets, bwhahaa). I really don't know what else EA could do to make a no mana template better, being as it would probably have too many overlaps or be too powerful in certain facets of the game.

    It is plain simple: a class that has 0 magic skills (bushido, chivalry and so on) gains a 200% damage bonus (call it battle focus if you want) on melee or ranged attack. Of course the bonus is not granted against other players, otherwise they'll have to "balance" pvp again and we pvmers will wake up barely able to scratch a rotting apple.

    I think one of the problems is that there isint that much mobs or champs designed specifically for pure dexxers.

    My sole warrior as had this template since i started playing in 98 :

    120 archery
    120 Mace ( switched it to swords a couple months ago to try something different )
    120 tact
    120 heal
    120 anat
    going for 120 parry

    Archery combined with a close combat skill makes him very versatile. I also use alot of mana regen, lmc and int bonus for special attacks , while keeping my base intelligence low to have a maximum of str and dex.

    Anywho, i can solo some, and for the rest im a great addition to any party and its fine like that. I do wish i could solo more with this char and im wondering if some of the new properties, arranged in a specific way could give this char acces to some new soloing fun. For example, i discovered the vampiric essence cutlass a while back, and this char just loves the 100% life leech combined with the blood drinker ability ( use bleed attack, the weapon drinks the spilled bood and heals you ). So im thinking that this kind of wep, with an armor suit and shield with alot elemental eaters ( like the wall of hungry mouths ) might just open up some new possibilitys for the pure dexxer.
