    Hi all.
    Im downloading UO client now and suppose will start playing this evening (gmt+3) after a long-long delay.
    Siege seems more familiar to me and in this case - most preferrable.

    Ill be playing a thief (as usually in UO).

    need some advice on skills, stats etc.

    Hide-100
    Stealth 120
    Snoop 100
    Steal 120
    Ninja 120
    Poisoning 100
    (Fencing40?)

    100(90)/125/25(35) - with power scroll

    Race - ?

    any suggestions

    Besides< I remember that UOA used to give temporary Nightsight (there was an option). Is it still so or not?

    and the last question. as npcs buy nothing from pcs here.. how to maintain a pure thief pers while training skills? how to earn money?

    Tnx in advance
    :spider:

    Welcome. With a new account you won't see Siege on the shard list, are you aware of that?

    You'll need to make a char on one of the other shards and renounce young status first.
    For example templates try consulting the uo pvp thief board or the uo thief board - though the second is more for pvm and statics thieves.

    I'm not sure what a young thief does to earn gold, but I am always willing to pay a ransom for items stolen from me. :)

    *hisses quickly while Rico looks not* there are new stealable items that new thief- or old- can sell.
    This one gained gold while training fencing killing monsters.
    When skill in ninjitsu is high enough, gold can be made killing monsters susceptible to it.
    Please icq me when logged on. May have scrolls you could use.

    I know you say you are new to Siege Perilous... but if your account is
    old enough you should create from any remaining veteran rewards atleast
    two RED SOULSTONES.

    They should be use to allow you to store that 100.0 skill points of Poisoning
    when it is not needed on your character so that you can GM Fencing.

    Use that Fencing to kill lesser monsters that you fail to Steal their GOLD from.

    Well when you can always sell bolts of cloth to folks here to earn some gp too. I think I made my first 5k plus here on Siege just posting anyone wanna buy some cloth bolts new immigrant and they did buy em up at banks and so forth.

    Just post it here whatever ya may wish to sell be it cloth bolts or ..something valuable maybe ya pilfered off some other player ...they may buy it back from you or others may buy whatever from your chr. and you will make GP this way and looting whatever stupid monsters gold from early mongbats or lizardmen ya off selling their hides etc and on upward & onward..it all adds up. :)

    To see Siege on the shard list, make a character on any of the shards you can see then say 'I renounce my young status'

    (someone correct me if that's not the right wording'). Once that's done you should see Siege on the list.

    Stealing from monsters: Yes it reveals you, but choose a monster that doesn't cast spells and you should outrun it fairly easily. Check the FAQs in the UO Thief forum for more information on that: http://vboards.stratics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=451

    hehe, it's not the 'ferret' they're likely to object to, you can even have a pet one in game.

    dex affects stamina. run out of stamina and you can't run
    Str affects hp, if you don't have enough you'll die a lot faster.
    int affects mana, if you want to be able to cast you'll want a decent mana-pool.

    So, you'll need at least some of all 3. How much of each depends on what skills you're training besides hiding, stealth and stealing.

    Drop stealth and poison to 80. That'll give ya some more points to play with.

    Also, I prefer a human for a thief, but that's just me. The joaT feature is nice to be able to use certain skills you wouldn't normally be able to use. Like low level magery (like 0) and a spell book and a few regs will allow you to cast mini heals and give yourself night vision...la
