    Hey guys, i have a question (sorry for making so many posts, i hope not to be a pain in the ass, i returned to UO 2 weeks ago and this game is new for me, very very different), what do you think about this template?

    GM Taming
    GM Lore
    GM Veterinary
    GM Archery
    GM Tactics
    GM Chivalry
    GM Meditation (this can be changed for other skill of better use)

    I started the game making myself a pure archer, but i really want to have a tamer like in the old days, i had a tamer archer, and it was so fun for me in those days (8 years ago).
    Chivalry i found it very useful with archer skills, the dmg output i can make with CW and EoO is fantastic, so i might choose this skill instead of magery.
    What would you suggest about a Tamer Archer? template advices will be much apreciated, and also everything useful you could tell me about PvM with a character like this.
    Regards!

    I took Anat to GM for extra damage. And I have 110 Lore and Taming. Only need 80 Chiv. I like how the template works. I do use a cu sidhe quite a bit on him for it's ability to heal me.

    Yep, that's similar to the archer tamer I had for a while. I think that's about the most workable archer tamer template these days.

    I'm tempted to make another with bushido and chiv, but that's likely to be too demanding on mana :D

    I did once try to make a dexer who used mage weapons, but typically couldn't find a good enough weapon selection to work with. It's another option, but not one I'd really recommend ;)

    I run a fencer pally tamer. At 1st I was an archer and loved it. But the ammo weight cost me trips to the bank to frequently so i swaped to fencing. The thing with being a close ranged melle fighter is you will always be right there to vet your pets. Thats a nice feature over archery. The other thing to mention is If youve got the gold/items you can swap out med for necro and focus. My guy has a 15/15 necro taming braclet and a 13 necro ring midnight bracers and a jakels. I then droped just enough skill on the necro to hold vamp form(99) and dropped the rest into focus

    120 fencing
    110 lor
    110 vet
    105 taming
    100 tactics
    68 chivalry
    51 necro

    After this main set of skills I fool around with magery focus bushido and other skills SS around or bought and jewle up to par. The vamp form alows me to ight through most AoE casters and keep on the runners till the very end. If i use the proper pet(max damage) and the right slayer,EoO(max damage) I get the best of both worlds.

    Archery does have better damage(DPS) but I couldnt see carrying ammo on such a powerfull damage template. I just fill up to quick!

    GL the warrior tamer is a rare breed. Carry an invisi pot or 5. They are slow and combersome but makes it alot cheaper then my method (19 magery crystal ring, 15 mage book, 5 tali, 15 braclet set, invisi scroll) but I can pre cast!

    At the very least, bring your archery to 120 (so you can actually hit champs, peerless, etc) and your taming/lore to 110 (so you'll never fail to command your pets).
