    Need help in making an archer of some sorts (I love archery). I was going to do necro/archer. Any advantages to this? I had an archer with chiv and it worked REALLY well but i don't know if i want to do that again. I was thinking of the following.

    Necro/Archer

    120 Archery
    100 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    100 necromancy
    120 Spirit Speak
    100 Healing

    That leaves me with 80 points to play around with. I'm also thinking of an archer with Chivalry and Bushido.

    120 Archery
    100 Bushido
    110 Tactics
    110 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    80 Chivalry
    100 Focus

    What are the advantages of putting bushido on an archer?

    I've got 2 PvM archers as well with the following template goals:

    Pure Archer
    120 Archery
    120 Tactics
    120 Bushido
    100 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    100 Spell Resist
    60 Chivalry
    720 Total

    This is a very high damage output build. Chivalry abilities (Enemy of One and Concentrate Weapon) can dish out some high damage, Chivalry is also great for Sacred Journey and I'd recommend it to 60-65 on virtually any build without Magery. Bushido is mainly used for Perfection (honoring opponents) and Lightening Strike; at higher Bushido skill levels you will do more damage with Perfection. You will gradually notice Perfection becoming more and more useful as your Archery skill improves. Apparently at high level you can dish some serious damage with this combination. It's a solid 'pure' archer template that can work solo or in groups.

    Tamer Archer
    120 Archery
    100 Tactics
    120 Bushido
    110 Animal Taming
    110 Animal Lore
    100 Veterinarian
    60 Chivalry
    720 Total

    This is obviously a hybrid template, but it apparently works well in PvM and in PvP. It's biggest feature is being the highest damage output template for PvM, and probably for PvP as well. You won't be able to handle much without a tough pet to hide behind without Anatomy or Healing, though. This template will also take a good deal of time to build up before you are on the same playing level as other characters, mainly because you will need to raise the infamous taming skill.

    As for the necro template, I've only been back to UO for a couple of weeks and have yet to try any necro template out, so I can't say if it would be a valid build or not. I know the "Pure" archer template above works very well from personal experience.

    There is a similar post here that helped me out quite a bit: http://vboards.stratics.com/showthread.php?t=1721

    Hope this helps.
