Been away for a little while. Moved to SB back in '03. Jumped to GW then on to WoW. None of it was ever as satisfying as running UO. So here I am, back again after 9+ years. I must say, I am completely overwhelmed right now looking at all the changes that the game has gone through. While I am miffed that the game hasn't become F2P yet, I'm giving it at least 3 months to change my mind. I have multiple high-end chars (dating back to my leaving), which means they are completely outdated and worthless (I suppose). With the exception of my Tamer and mule, the rest of the bunch looks like they need major overhaul. I know that personal preference and playstyle is a large factor. But I need some suggestions about viability and ease of change (i.e. not making 5 skill changes). I know I am asking a lot here, but if some of you could direct me with a way to go, I can figure the rest out myself (battle tactics, skill training, and templates). Here is a list of my old chars: 1. 7x Stun Mage (Med, Mage, Eval, Resist, Wrestle, Anatomy, Healing) 2. 7x Fencing Dexxer (Fencing, Tactics, Anat, Healing, Resist, Magery, Poison) 3. 7x Disarm Thief Dexxer (Stealing, Resist, Tactics, Anatomy, Wrestling, Healing, Fencing) 4. 7x Tamer/Mage (Med, Mage, Eval, Lore, Taming, Vet, Wrestle) 5. 7x Mule (Alch, Arms, BS, Carp, Mining, Tailor, Tinker) 6. Newbie dexxer (mid 60s in 10 skills, Music/Provo) As you can see, what used to be a well-rounded account with a tower on Ice Island is now a joke. Sadly, I have nobody that I used to run with wanting to come back with me. So I will be soloing for a bit. I am turning this account into a PVM account and will explore PVP after I get back on par with my competition. Here is what I am thinking about doing with them: 1. Add Necro/SS, drop Anat/Heal 2. No idea what works. 3. Again, no clue. 4. If it still works as is, I'll keep it as is. 5. Need to pick up Imbuing I suppose, what do I drop? 6. Can't decide. Also thinking of picking up 7th Slot/Storage increase from the shop. One of the dexxers will become a Sampire, and the other two will battle it out for whatever else works. I would like to make a support-ready character to play if I can find a guild or group of players. Again, I thank anyone who will respond with feedback. I don't know what I am doing exactly, but I think I have a strong foothold on what direction I need to take. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
