    120 wep
    120 tacs
    120 parry
    120 resist

    i agree that things are out of balance, and i will tell you exactly why no one can build a half assed (pun? is that ***'ed out??) char...

    the tactics/weaponskill introduction.

    remove that, and PvP will reign in a new light once again.

    Med 120
    resist 120
    wres 120
    scribe 100
    20 pts anywhere lol, being human I havnt found anything worth while.

    My next temp is the same as the first but W/O wres, and mystic in its place.

    Besides we dont need another 100 points, we have Soulstones that don't have a 24hr requirement anymore. people can literally carry around 3 mage temps or more in one pocket, almost a house hiders dream.

    Beta to now they removed the 24hr timer being that you can make 1 charge frags now so its senseless to have the timer. And as of today its still gone as I used one stone to xfer mule skills to another character.

    With 100 more skill points you know the gimp temps you can make. Right now archers are the most powerful temp just cause they can mortal spam or maneuver to hit you making them the easiest to play. Mages are another powerful temp but you need to have skill and timing to play them to make them one of the harder to play but more fun. dexers same as archers in the pray and hit making it no skill in the hitting part but maneuvering the dexer to hit someone takes some tactics and placing ether a para blow or a timed nerv to kill em in less you are one of the few dexers that are extremely fast just hold down the ai button and if you get down to half life run. if i had 100 more skill points bam instant very hard to kill tamer archer or bring back the bush mage with evade !

    I think if they allowed another 100.0 skill points... It would make the gimp templates.... EXTREMELY GIMP.

    For example...

    Everybody knows how hard it is to fight a bushido parry dexxer on another dexxer right? Imagine this..

    Bushido
    Parry
    Swords
    Archery...


    That would be downright ********.

    Think of a tamer mage

    The most you can fit is
    Necro ( no SS )
    Scribe
    Mage.

    Add another 100.0

    You add Spirit Speak


    Would that not be gimp as hell?

    A necro ( with SS ) scribe mage with a dread under the feet.


    I mean that template is possible but you would have to sacrifice med which would be dreadful as a mage.

    The gimp templates would just pile up. Including what Rand said about the parry bush mages.

    In conclusion , I disagree with adding another 100.0 skill points.

    As for a dexer an extra 100 could produce something like:

    Fence/swords-120
    tactics- 110
    poison- 90
    med- 100
    chiv- 75
    ss- 120
    necro- 105
    Bushido/resist- 100
    @ 4/6 fc/fcr to me that would be pretty gimp and lame to fight against.

    *edit* forgot the extra 100 pts lol forgot to add bush

    You can work up whatever skill (like chiv) to a low level like 50 and then just get jewelry to make up for the 50 less skill. I've heard that people have successfully got another 100 skills once they managed to find the perfect suit.

    That is a good point... But I die all the time anyway, not worth throwing down 2-300 mil on a suit.... However a dexxer suit is quite a bit cheaper.

    However, the one thing I do carry a lot of usually is apples. And there are very few necro dexxers anymore.

    Agreed. Magic Resist needs to be revamped. They totally effed that skill up. I mean, it's useful sometimes but like... seriously? It's not nearly as useful as it used to be.

    I double click most of my ****... Guess I won't need resists then... that would open a LOT of doors for my chars as far as skill goes. Does anyone use resist anymore?

    make a macro on UOA for your box, pots, bandaids, apples, everything. lol

    worst case scenario, you forget which macro is what. then you just bang your hand onthe keyboard and it works somehow.

    Basically, if ALL you do is hang out in yew, you don't need resist.. Just a well placed box macro, as well as TONS of cure pots..

    If you'd like to use your template for anything besides trailer brawls, its rrrrreally annoying not to have resist..

    edit: have you all forgotten what its like to be chain-mana-vamped??
