Template Question for PvM Spawner

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by BardMal, Feb 18, 2009.

    Hoping to make my new spawner for a shard move I'm planning.

    120 Spirit Speak
    100 Necromancy
    120 Music
    120 Provoke
    120 Magery - (a dream)
    100 Meditation

    Hoping to get a 30-45 skill boost from books/jewels.

    and now I am stuck between Eval Int, Wrestle, Resist, or even focus for the added regeneration of hp as well as mana.

    My basic intent is wither, wither, wither lower spawn, EV mid spawn, provoke higher level spawn and heal cure my wife's dragon on the champ while attempting provokes.

    70-85 points in a skill makes it a tough call.
    85 wrestle is worthless at high level spawns, and at the low levels nothing can reach you to hit you.
    85 focus really isn't that good for anything.
    85 EI makes your offensive spells pretty good, but doesn't hold a candle to higher levels of EI. But for the end boss, it may be your best choice if you can sacrifice some magery points for more EI.
    If you'll be hunting with your wife and her dragon, you may consider 55 chivalry for remove curse.
    I used to have 50 hiding on my tamer, but never used it.
    40 spellweaving gives you a couple of very powerful spells at 100% casting, specifically natures fury, gift of renewal and attunement, and from what I've heard, you can cast an arcane circle with JOAT humans to make them even more effective (I haven't tested that myself).

    What I did with my mage/necro/tamer is keep taming/lore/vet at 80-90 (thus about 240 points in those skills, similar to 240 points in music/provoke) and then left magery/EI/necro at 110, spirit speak at 100 which gave me only 50 points for meditation. In lich form or wraith form (situational), mana is still rarely a problem. I would like a bit of extra med on my template though. I'm thinking about going back to +skill jewels for that purpose.

    here is my spawner.....she spawned daily on Cats for over a year till I had all my scrolls we needed and I got bored.

    120 necro/SS
    115 magery
    100 music/peace
    120 eval
    90 med

    that needs about 35 skill pts on items with a 720 base.

    I wither/ area peace for 3 levels and flame strike/ebolt the champ after dropping a evil omen and strangle. Wraith or lich form helps with mana. As does a follower. Slayer books often mean I can inflict over 100-120 damage per spell on champs.

    Since you do tend to get swamped at spawns, you definatly need some kind of defense. You can go with wrestling or a mage weapon.

    In your case I would suggest a mage weapon and get your med as high as possible. You'll use a lot of mana at a spawn, the fasteryou regen the better.
