    Many players do not know this, but fighting monsters with a mage weapon (eg. Staff or Pyros or Staff of Magi or Swords of Prosperity... better yet, use a fast, missile weapon like a mage weapon repeating crossbow... sure bolts/arrows cost $$$, but you get hurt and die less while training) is also a wonderful method of gaining magery skill. Fight the following monsters wielding a magery weapon, (choose your monsters) according to your magery skill. I Legendaried several of my mages using this method. (when almost everyone else used the terrible scripting/macroing the casting of spells using LRC armour method).

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    On UO Warrior (Stratics) forum, "Seas" posted (with credit to "Vidala") the following useful data for training combat skills (eg. wrestling, swords, archery, macing, fencing).

    <blockquote><hr>

    i copied the info from vidala's post and added a bunch of creatures, as well as what to fight from 100 to 120(i'm not too sure which are best to gain though)
    0-30 (skill can be bought up to 28-32 if you find the right npc)
    Birds, mongbats, cats, boars, pigs, dogs, cows, goats, sheeps, rabbits, chickens, snakes, slimes
    Any forest almost anywhere, near minoc/yew moongate, outside delucia.


    30-45
    Hinds, llamas, horses, great harts, ridgebacks, (tamed/released) bulls, eagles, gorillas, mountain goats, timber wolves, giant rats
    Moonglow (right outside of town on the South and Eastern sides). Delucia has lots of great harts and bulls north and east of town. Around minoc moongate there's a few great harts and bulls as well. If you find you're out of targets, bulls can be good for gaining, but you'll probably make a lot of tamers mad. Ridgebacks can be found in ilshenar's central area, the easiest way is the compassion gate, then south and through the cavey entrance and up. There's usually a lot of tamers busy with them though.

    45-70
    Skeletons, liches
    Any graveyard, but I like Yew since it spawns *only* skeletons. Just beware of any bog things or plague beasts if you fight in Trammel. Yew crypts in Trammel is also good. You should only fight liches of course if you're just training another combat skill(and got high resist), but i found i gained pretty good on them at this level.

    70-80
    Lizardmen
    You can go to a swamp, like the one beneath Compassion, the Trinsic swamps, or the Destard swamps, but you can also go to Lvl. 1 Despise (I prefer there). No need to worry about jukas, ratmen, plague beasts, and bog things. Also the cold blood title spawn(when it's at it's lowest level) in ilshenar/felucca/lost lands has tons of lizardmen.

    80-85
    Ratmen
    For this, I went to the Destard swamps on the North-West side, lured a few ratmen away and fought them 1 by 1. Some other monsters followed, so I blasted those guys first. North of sacrifice is a medium size rat fort, you'll probably have to drag a few away at a time there. You can also go into the cave where the spawn is smaller.

    Orcs
    The orc dungeon, lure a few of them away and attack them. Spawning orc camps around delucia or the orc fort near cove also work good.

    85-90
    Harpys
    Covetous Lvl. 1 or lvl 2, just have to watch out for the occasional stone harpy, lvl2 doesn't have any stone harpys though. In ilshenar there's also a harpy nest north/east of the spirituality gate, be sure not to have negative karma or you'll be swarmed by pixies!

    90-GM
    Harpys, stone harpys
    As said above. Stone harpys can be found in the same place, they've got slightly higher combat skills but hit much harder, so they might not be a good choice.

    Blade spirits
    They always have 90 wrestle, no idea if it's better than the others, and the gain with fighting these might have been "nerfed".

    NPC warriors
    Either hire one or fight them in the jhelom fighting pit.

    Ogre lords
    Despise lvl3, some rune libraries have specific rune to this place. Best for archers though since they hit so hard.

    Earth elementals
    Shame Lvl. 1, or if it's camped there you can go to Lvl. 3 (and possibly Lvl. 2, I know there's an earthy spawn in Lvl. 2 now in Felucca so I'd assume it's in Trammel too). There's also some places in Ilshenar, in the desert outside the gargoyle city, around the rocky place north of gargoyle city(get there by honor shrine, walk up and into the cave entrance), the rocky place south of the gargoyle city(it no longer has ore elementals) and in the ratman cave which i mentioned above(3 tiny spawn spots with only 2 earthys each)

    Bone and skeleton knights
    City of the Dead, or if you can get a few friends you can head over to Deceit Lvl. 2, a.k.a. the BK room

    GM-120
    Atlantean Angel [2012] aka Ah Beng's note :
    From GM to 120, I train on Succubus (good for Honor and Sacrifice virtues, too!).



    <pre>combat skill
    120 summoned energy vortex
    100-120 people in fel/peekays
    100 plague beast
    98-100 gm summoned daemon
    97-100 centaur
    96-99 juka lord
    97-100 ethereal warrior(they res you if you're positive karma)
    95-100 shadow wyrm
    90-97 phoenix
    97-100 skeletal dragon
    97-100 ancient wyrm
    93-100 orc brute
    92-98 rotting corpse
    92-99 terathan avenger
    92-99 balron
    91-100 betrayer
    91-100 gargoyle destroyer
    91-100 ogre lord
    91-98 zealot of khaldun, summoner
    90-100 ophidian knight errant/avenger
    ~90-100 fire gargoyle
    90-98 silver serpent
    91-95 blackthorn juggernaut
    92-93 tentacles of the harrower
    86-100 blood elemental
    91-93 dragon
    87-96 bone/skeletal knight
    85-93 snow elemental
    90 summoned blade spirit
    81-97 elder gazer</pre>

    I just listed all the creatures which have always near gm combat skills. Earthys variate between 60-100 in skills, while these have 90-100, so they should be better for gaining at above gm.

    They're all strong as hell, so the easiest(but most boring) is fighting rotting corpses(by x-healing, curing by ankh at humility shrine) and centaurs(with parry). Check the hunter's guide if you want to know where they all can be found.
