    posted this over in warrior forum as well...
    It's been about 10 years since I played UO, I played the original release before alot of the newer skills. I had a fun character that was pretty good at soloing. His skill were nearly 100 for the following
    Sword
    Heal
    resist magic
    music
    provo
    anatomy
    i dont remember the last one
    With all the new skills, is something like this still viable or should I go a different route.

    i played the same back in the day.
    warrior monk.

    mace and provo where my bag'o tricks.

    and yes, there are a log of warrior bards now a days.
    most go with archery instead of swords.
    just cause bard skills are usually done at a distance, and so is archery.

    but there have been of late a lot of people using toe to toe melee skills and then they max out their weapons on mana leech so they can feed their mana consumption to keep their masteries up and going.

    personally i go with disco on all of my melee bards now.
    i just like the fact that i can drop the monsters resists AND skills by 28%.
    that makes them hit softer and makes me hit them harder.
    which in the end makes them die faster and helps me live longer.

    I think that's the most said with the least amount of words regarding why to use a skill that I've ever seen...

    Well done, Poo !

    I believe a disco warrior can out damage any other template in game. If you combine Chiv, Weapon/Tactics/Disco/Music/Parry and 120 everything except tactics. You just need a good mana leech/life leech weapon. (120 Chiv = EOO 84% and CW 15% Damage bonus) Free Slayer!

    If you use a slayer instrument with tribulation you'll be getting a bonus of about 50% damage per hit and have lowered the mobs damage output as well.

    Stack discord on top of that and just armor till you are looting.

    Iv been using a necro chiv bard archer for years now since the turkeys came out as you could provo them on each other have 5 going at once and still smack a good punch with a nice bow :)

    Bard archers rock for solo but its getting the provo in before you get to much agro thats the tricky bit. I use jewelry and a fishing pole then swap out.

    might consider doing this with a thrower, anyone already done this?

    Only done it on test with an archer.

    120 Archery
    100 Tactics
    120 Chivalry
    120 Discordance
    120 Musicianship
    100 Meditation

    Without Gems, I guess with gems one could probably squeeze out something better
    This has 20 points left over (40 if yer a vet)
    You could pull another 40 off chiv and Archery if you can replace with gems.
    Which would give you 80.
    Run a high mana leech bow and go nuts with tribulation

    i run this template already, except i have chiv lower and have the those points and the extra ones rolled into Bushido.

    i like the confidence for healing and the lightning strike, and of course the honor. I also have the archery at 100 and wear the hunters headdress.

    use the jewels to get bushy up more and then HCI/DCI/DI and dex.
    then suit is all resists with LMC and MR and stamina.
    get that dex up to 150 with 40 LMC and as much MR as you can get into the suit.

    i really enjoy the template.

    while not a solo the champ or boss template, it is definitely a nice template to help our 1 or 2 friends on a champ or boss.

    Maybe I could stick like 50 points into bushido to get the perfection benefit.
    Thats an idea.

    But with 120 Chiv EOO and CW turn every weapon into a slayer.

    but why, when you can simply just add the slayer to any weapon you want with imbuing?

    i find it easier to save 40 points in chiv that i dont need and sink that into Bushido.

    With Chiv you get the slayer effect regardless if you have a slayer, and you can stackt hat with perfection if you wanted, though with bushido you get perfection and still have to carry a slayer. If you're fighting somethign thats not slayer vulnerable then you won't double up on the damage. Also you dont have to worry about getting honor in during group fights.

    true.

    Yeh but 120 Chiv and constant AI is what I do. Lightning strike is only a 25% chance at 120.

    And 4/6 Casting the Chiv cures Lethal, heals for 40 and I can spam some holy light.

    this is what i use:

    120 mace
    92 tactics
    94 music (120 with jewelry)
    94 discord (120 with jewelry)
    100 parry
    100 chivalry
    120 bushido


    Jewelry is:

    13 music
    13 disco
    hci
    dci
    di

    works great with a life leech weapon

    and if im already using a slayer weapon , then i can swap chiv for ninja. use dog form for the hp regen and walk away from the computer.
