    I've put my warrior/sampire character on hold and have been working on a mage. I've never had a mage char before so its all new to me. Enjoying it all so far but could use a little advice.

    I currently have the following on my template:

    Magery
    Eval Intel
    Focus
    Meditation
    Inscription

    I've been trying to get 120 scrolls for the first three skills but currently only got 110's. All the skills are trained to just over 100 (apart from inscription which is stuck at 95, I cant seem to make more than 3 scrolls at a time without mana drain!).

    I was wondering what other skills might fit in with this current setup? I was thinking about some taming, but don't think I'll have enough points for the three skills needed for taming.

    Also Mysticism and Spellweaving look interesting, would these fit in well? What do other people run template wish for PvM battle style mages?

    I've only been back on UO about a month so still picking up all the new changes. Any advice or pointers would be greatly appreciated. :)

    I'm fond of this set up:

    Magery (120)
    Meditation (100, have a suit with high MR, which is super easy nowadays)
    Resisting Spells (Protection because monsters love to disrupt, 120)
    Eval Int (120)
    Inscription (for the SDI and minor buff boosts) (100)
    Stealth (80)
    Hiding (80)

    (I enjoy the last two because it allows me pretty much the freedom to go where I want without necessarily having to deal with critters I don't want to. Also, I have Stealth at 80, because at that point you will always succeed at trying it... put the extra into Resisting and boost a bit further with jewels. Very rarely do I fail Hiding at 80, as well. I run with Protection on as said, and with my Inscription bonus and jewels it is 105. I never have much issue then with creatures poisoning me or cursing.)

    Make spellbooks, does not require any mana, and you will GM in a very short time.

    Great advice, thanks! Managed to hit GM now and make a few slayer spellbooks on the way.

    Training mysticism now. Then I think all my skill points are gone.
