What is there to do? Think big picture.

    I am a returning player attempting to set goals for my tamer/Mage character. In answer to my own question, I have been training up my mage first. This to offer self defense while later taming. But What to do other than simply training. I get the impression there is an almost endless list of things to do.

    How can I get a grip on the big picture, then set goals for my character?

    I have spent some 10 days of research. Reading UO healed, stratics and many other fine sources of information. I am currently at the brink of information overload. This is why my interest in the big picture.
    Thank you.

    Well, I think the big picture with UO is that it isn't linear in the way that most MMOs are. It's a sandbox. There is no endpoint. So the biggest question is, what do YOU WANT to do? The question is yours.

    You've decided you want to train up a mage tamer. That's a good start. What do you want to do with this mage tamer? Find, tame, and train a rare-colored Cu Sidhe? Make donations to the Moonglow Royal Zoo? Your sig mentions RP & PVM. Well there ya go! Find a RP community and start your character's story by trying to make a living selling Forest Ostards or Blue Beetles to other RPers. See if any other tamers want to go on a casual hunt. The possibilities are endless :)

    Mage/Tamers r a BLaST to play - one of the most fun in pvm. Id like to recommend one particular template Ive had serious fun playing. 1st - go Gargoyle. I know they're ugly flying rats but theres no other way to get a greater dragon with mounted speed (gargoyles fly -whoot!) Imbue up a suit/jewls w/ 40%LMC and as much +stats and MR as u can fit. You wont be able to fit in meditation but if u can pack on around 14-16 MR & +mana stat points, with 120focus u can pretty much chain cast greater heals. By the time u cast & target ur pet u should just abt have enough mana to rinse & repeat.

    120 magery (use a -20mage wep.)
    120 evalint
    120 mystic
    120 focus
    120 animal lore
    105 tame (can always put on a +15 ring just for taming)
    15 spellweaving (if ur account can fit the 720 skills on it)

    Can put +15 mage on a 3FCR ring & use the alchemy +5 mage talisman (u get a potion bonus also)
    Ur gonna use the ornament of magi of course. -20mage SC boomerang w/ +20DCI imbued.
    at 105 tame and 120 lore u will control a greater dragon 99% of the time, just drop on ur +15
    taming ring for when ur trying to tame that awesome greater u just found.
    Folded Steel glasses for the DCI (+10 more if u go factions just for the items). Mantle of Fallen.
    Dump on as much DCI as u can, sash, ring, glasses, robe (if u can afford one)
    The weaving is used only for gift of renewal and attunement. If u can get a no skill focus lvl 5 or 6
    you've got magery to heal, mysticism to heal, healing stones, potions (w/ EP), and spellweaving buffs.
    Over all, when ur all buffed up ur damn near impossible to kill for alil over a minute.
    Always carry atleast 2 fully charged/insured pet balls so in a worse case scenario u can fly like hell
    to a safe spot and summon ur dragon b4 they give up the ghost (cause u cant res them).

    I know this is WAY over what most new/returning players can afford but its definately something to shoot for and highly do-able within a few months if you get back into the game. Whatever template u decide to go with, Good luck & Welcome back to UO Sir :)
