[Archery] Strat help?

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Jonny, Apr 30, 2009.

    So I'm doing an Archer/Lumberjack as my first character and possible use him as a mule once I get him GM Fletching.

    My skills that I've been working on are:
    Archery (obviously)
    Lumberjack
    Bowcraft/Fletching
    Healing
    Anatomy
    Tactics

    I've built on other skills but not much. Only things that I kinda needed for my character to really function. Mainly by that I mean Magery I got up to around 30.

    Any help from some experienced players would be appreciated. Thanks.
     
  2. Why an archer/jack, and with bowcrafting no less?

    I think he is trying to make himself self sufficient this was my first character many many years ago you can make your own arrows and harvest your own lumber and can make decent cash selling bows
    the way things are now you really dont need to do this but I understand the logic from a new person perspective I thought about something similar on siege as I have not made a character there yet !
     
  4. That's why I was asking. It's really not necessary any longer to have templates like this.

    Well Connor, Storm was correct. I assumed that buy making it so I could create my own weapons and sell the excess, I would not have to make myself dependent on others.

    So, my question is, why is this a pointless template and what would you suggest instead?
     
  6. As a first char, I'd go with this template:

    120 Archery
    120 Bushido
    100 Tactics
    100 Healing
    90 Anatomy
    90 Resist
    80 Chivalry

    Scrolls are a little pricey, so you can start off with GM Archer and GM Bushido until you have enough gold to buy the scrolls for them. Later on down the road when you have more gold to invest, you can get a 110 Tactics and drop Chiv down to 70.


    I'd then also make a second mule character that would compliment this one that has both Lumberjacking and Bowyer/Fletcher. You can chop your own wood and get feathers from harpies that you'll use for training. After you've built your skills up, you can then go after Centaurs and/or Ratman Archers which drop arrows as part of their loot.

    Stick with what your doing, its a fun and rewarding experience. Its the way i started back(but with swords mining smith), make sure you put in arms lore, and all your excess bows you make turn them into heartwood for the chance of a runic kit.

    You can always make a dedicated fighting template later, once youve mastered your archery tactics picking up the additional skills will become alot easier.

    Which ever way you go, connors template is a very solid temp, remember to play for fun and do what suits your playstyle.

    Thanks for the input guys. I'm not quite sure what Bushido is, but I'll look into it.

    for now work the skills you have listed later you can transfer the lumber jack, fletching skills off and add bushido and whatever else you decide like chiv the you will have a good fighter template and have the start of a good crafter template one other thing I would add arms lore in there also this will give you DI increase on weapons you craft and armor points to armor!
