Starting Disco Archer...need gear pointers

Discussion in 'UO Bard' started by Gnat the Bard, Apr 1, 2010.

  1. Hello, I've haven't really played a warrior char in quite a while so I am somewhat outta touch with what I should be wearing. I am making a Disco Archer with Bushido/Chiv that I've seen Poo recommending. What gear should I be going for?

    Will be using Hunters Headdress for archery skill to 120, as well as using Med. Thanks for any pointers.

    if getting some items isnt a big deal to ya.

    this is what i did on my couple toons.

    hunters heardress to get to 120 archery.
    song woven mantle arms (10 music)

    then i made a ring and watch with
    HCI 13
    DCI 13
    DI 20
    then added on some skills.
    think i did bushido and disco on one
    and bushido and music on the other (or it was disco on both, cant recall)

    that way i only had to train diso and archery up to like GM which is fast for both.

    I was thinking of trying this also for the great damage output it can do.

    80 Chiv
    120 Bushido
    100 Archery HH 120
    100 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    110 Music +10 with the arms for 120
    100 Discord add +20 discord on jewels

    Try that it should give you some great damage!

    with the added anat what does that add for extra damage?
    10 points?

    think id rather have the GM med so i could spam out some specials and chain lightning strikes.
    plus when your honor / bushido / lightning strike bonus kicks in every 2nd or 3rd hit that extra 100 damage point will more then make up the loss of damage you have from not having anat.

    course, if ya had healing on that template then thats a different story.

    for this template ya have to either decide to go healing anat or med and specials.
     
  5. No, 100 Anatomy is 55 DI.

    Confidence alone isn't going to work with no Resist, Mana Vamp/Poison ticks and Parra interrupting it everytime.

    What you need on your suit comes down to how you heal. If you go with bandages aim for Dex increase, 140 Dex for 4s bandages. Otherwise you probably need either Vamp Form, Curse Weapon or 4/6 Chiv.

    or pots.


    and you probablly wont need the anat bonus anyways, cause hitting the 300 cap is easy enough to hit with weapon and EeO and the likes.

    so again (again) it comes down to how you wanna heal.
    do you want to use aids or do you wanna use chiv/bushy/pots

    like i said i have both.
    the one with aids was my first one and that was cause im a old player and love healing with aids.
    the other 4 where done later and i prefer that template more now.

    course, the down side is you cant cross heal anyone else in your party if you dont have healing.

    I know it's not ideal, but couldn't you go with 90 disco and 80 music? Pop on the +10 music arms and +30 jewels when you disco. Take them off and put on normal stuff after.
