    Hi all

    I'm making a stealth, fencer, poison template but I have hard with not being able to rez.

    Right now, my skills are a little messed:
    Stealth 100.6
    Magery 100.7
    Hiding 100.0
    Ninjitsu 97.1
    Fencing 95.7 95.7
    Poisoning 93.9
    Bushido 73.8
    Tactics 49.0

    I'm not sure where to end up. I'm thinking of a template for surprise attack, where poison do most of the killing. I know in PvP, that won't work well but it is mostly meant for PKing and roleplay.

    The first advice I got was :
    Fence 120
    tactic 90
    bushido 70
    hiding 100
    stealth 120
    poison 100
    ninja 120
    I have seen that work in PvP too, but I'm missing a way to heal and to rez

    Only way I see to keep magery is:
    Fencing 90
    Bushido 70
    Ninjitsu 100
    Hiding 100
    Stealth 110
    Poison 90
    Magery 90
    tactics 70

    But do I have enough stealth to get away, if the attack fail?
    I can use skills on jewelry to get fencing up and stealth

    Advices are welcome

    I'm not too familiar with how high end the suits people run on Siege are, I'm about to start playing here and I'm coming from Atl, but you will need 120 fencing. If the target you try to kill has 120 weapon skill and you only have 100, you won't hit them as often if they have some DCI stat.
    Also from what I have tested, 120ninja/100hiding/120stealth deathstrikes at max running distance is only 8-10 damage difference then 100ninja/100hiding/120stealth, assuming the deathstrike hits. Since DS is capped at 50 for players, you won't see that much of a difference versus putting the 20 points into Fencing to take it to 120. Having 120 fencing will also allow higher chances to land infectious strike and shadowstrike.

    Also I'm aware you stated that is purely for RP and PKing, but without tactics you will be dealing very little damage.

    Seems like you would need to drop the Magery and be a bit more self-focused and ignore the ability to res.

    For healing, Bushido can cover you on it but not for much. Confidence at 100 bushido will heal you for about 30 hp as long as you are not hit during the regeneration. Then usage of pots to cover the rest.

    Resisting Spells is also important, but again not sure of the fighting terms for RP. An enemy mage can simply cast Mana Vampire, sapping all your mana giving you the inability to infectiousstrike or shadowstrike away and heal. You can also be easily paralyze spammed. Paralyze spam can be countered by trapped boxes, mana vampire not so much.

    On your question of dagger or assassin spike, either will do since they are both same speed and base damage. I personally prefer the spike, it looks better in my opinion!

    One key thing I would like to point out that I rarely see people do is..... lesser hiryus! With 100 bushido you can control/ride a lesser hiryu, while I know this won't exactly fit your stealthy fighting style, a trained lesser can definitely pack a punch and dismount! You could be a more unique roleplayer as a ninja with his/her own lizard companion!

    Drop bushido completly, then you can have your magery. Heal only with pots, also you only need 80 stealth. 120 ninja 100hide and 80 stealth still does 43hp death strikes. Come out of hide disarm them with warfork, dp with kryss mana dump death strikes. If that doesnt win then it might be time to smokebomb. Remember being a ninja is about surprise let them think you are near when you are for away, and when they think you are far away come out and kill them. Timing is every thing and surprise is your best weapon.
