Warrior skills help

    My char has the following skills:

    103 Swords going to 120
    104 Tactics 120
    105 Resisting Spells 120
    106 Anatomy 120
    104 Healing 120
    100 Chivalry

    First about swords and tactics skills, I´ve been fighting Trogs, does that help me? Or is there a monster which would make my skills go up faster?

    I have a soul seeker.

    My Guilmate is 93 swords and 91 tactics. Would our skills go up if we fought against each other? Which is the best wep to use in this case? Should we keep armor on?

    Is this a good pvp template?

    Thank you

    A couple things to consider when trying to raise your weapon skill.

    1) It's not about killing or doing damage. It's about hitting or trying to hit.
    2) You need to be within about 30 melee points of your opponent to be able to gain skill.

    Point 1. You don't want to use a Soul Seeker against a repond creature. The Slayer damage will kill your opponenent to quickly. The high SSI and lack of DI make it ideal for wany non-repond creature.

    Point 2. A list of the best opponents can be found in the Hunter's Guide here at Stratics. You want a creature that has between 90 and 150 wrestling. From that guide, I'd probably choose Daemons, regular Dragons, and Devourer of Souls. Balrons and Greater Dragons work too, but only if you can heal fast enough to stay in the fight. If you have a fast-swinging non-repond weapon, Ogre Lords are excellent opponents.

    As for your template, you just won't do enough damage with it in PvP. You neeed to at least add Bushido. I'd get rid of Anatomy, hold Resist at GM, reduce Healing to around 90, and reduce Chivalry to 65 or 75. Push Swords to 120, then add Bushido and parry if you can fit them in. You might have to drop Tactics to 90.

    Other options include ditching Resist and using trapped boxes, Orange Petals, and Greater Cure Potions (also required if you drop anatomy). If you have FC 4, you could use Chiv healing instead of the healing skill, but you'll want to make sure you have plenty of mana and ways to get it back (MR, Mana Leach, Meditation/Focus).

    That's alot of stuff to think about. After all that, you'll need to find the right equipment to go along with that template.

    Trogs are good up to 120 because the respawn rate is so high you'll always be swinging. And since gold is really light now, you can make a few coins on the way.

    Better still is Yomotsu warriors in the Yomotsu mines. They have 100-110 wrestling and spawn as quickly as you kill them.

    You didn't mention parry. You need parry. Bushido AND parry is better. That gives you evasion, which means you can even parry spells for a couple of seconds. That's very helpful.
