I'm totally lost right now, tried thinking about it on my own, and realised my best bet is to ask here for suggestions and pro/cons. Sorry if my wording is a bit strange at times, my native language isn't English, so I sometimes fail at finding the right words to express myself. *blushes* It's also a bit longer, because I think it might help explain my thoughts so far (it could even be longer, since I've been throwing ideas around for a bit). My main character is a simple mage tamer. 120 Mage/Eval/Medi/Taming/Lore/Vet - Skillcap: 720 (well ok, taming isn't legendary yet, since I prefer hunting and playing the game to working on it... ^^) The mage skills were important for me in the beginning, to help me survive, especially when my taming was still lower. Nowadays though, I can really let my pets fight for me and I've started thinking about moving on to a more... um, "complex"? template, to enhance my hunting/playing experience. I've seen various templates, and it seems that the barding skills would best suit me. Necrotamer for example sounds awesome (just mentioning it because one of the most recent threads mentions them and I think it sounds great when you're good at it), and I'm sure I could get together a decent suit for it, but I'm horrible at assessing a situation and get lost easily when there's a lot going on... To put it simply: I am known for dying easily. Yesterday for example I was hunting with my usual group and I told them about my thoughts, and that I am considering if I should drop my luck/lrc suit (doesn't matter anyway if I'm not topdamager) and take up one with mr/lmc/lrc (for when I have to use Greater Heal on my pets) and resists (so I don't die quite as fast). The reaction was them laughing, telling me "Ceri, that doesn't matter in your case anyway. Resists won't help someone like you die less." (yeah, that stings sometimes, although I know they're telling the truth) So basically, I am looking for a way to reduce my death rate somehow, while also being able to kill well. I've narrowed it down to add Peacemaking or Disco, but can't decide which one. I can soulstone both skills over, so training isn't something I'm worried about. Idealy, I would love to have both skills in my template. But I don't really see how it could work, unless I used items - and I'm reluctant to using too many +skill items, especially with the taming skills (although I have no problem using jewelry for the stable slots) and also in case I'd want to wear my simple luck/lrc armour. With my "playstyle" and how I handle situations (or fail at doing so), I think Peacemaking might be the better choice (and seeing more points for chosing that while writing this), but I'm really torn because Disco would be great to help fight against "biggies" (Peerless, Doom, Champs...). Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, and I'm also open to other suggestions. I also don't mind more expensive suggestions (be it skillscrolls or armour). Oh, and I might add: I've already tried Spellweaving, and it's just not a skill I can grasp or like, even though it's also a nice skill to have as a tamer. EDIT: Great, writing this all out helped after all... Currently trying to figure out how I can fit both peace and disco into my template. One cramped template over all characters so far doesn't seem as wrong to me after thinking about it.
