    I'd focus on Rael and work up some swap around some necro skills on him.

    Go something like:
    120 Weapon
    120 Tactics
    120 Bushido
    120 Resist Spell/Anatomy
    99 Necro
    60 Parry
    Rest in Chiv.

    If you're not 720 skill no biggie but that template is a workhorse.

    What shard? If you're on GL I can probably get you a basic suit to work with or imbue you up some training stuff.

    Q

    If you want to make use of the Necro already on your mage I like a Nox/Necro for general group spawning and pvp. The template I run is:

    Magery 120
    Eval 120
    Necro 120
    Spirit Speak 120
    Resist 120
    Poison 100

    Wraith form compensates for the lack of med in the template during spawns, and I never have an issue with mana during field fighting in pvp.

    yes 705 skillcap, damnit :( but i hope its working too with it.
    im on drachenfels actualy!

    - hmm is 99 necro 120bushido macroable and fast skilled?

    dont want to waste my 110 necro on rhuad for just to switching the necro skill to rael.
    65 chiv is fast raised from zero, so the 100 chive is going to a mule character ^^.

    so:
    120 Weapon
    120 Tactics
    120 Bushido
    120 Resist Spell/Anatomy ( whats better for newcomers? already got anatomy to 110, is resisting spells better and easyier to macro )
    99 Necro ( why 99 not 100?)
    60 Parry
    66 chiv


    this is nice to farm sa regeants for my new suit right? also also usefull for champs in groups? :)

    Thanks alot!!!

    ya the sampire is great for multiple monsters attacking you. You want to get a weapon that does the special move Whirlwind.
    Skilling bushido isnt too bad, use New Haven to get to 50 fast then you can train with Lightning Strike.

    99 necro is the minimum needed to cast the Vampiric embrace so some just leave the skill at 99, since that 1.0 in skill wont make a huge difference in successful casting. if your stuck with the 705 skill cap for a while then 99 necro is fine.

    Necro training is pretty easy since most the spells wont need a target. Check out UOguide and the stratics forums/info pages for the most efficient ways of training skills.

    99 necro is the min to cast vamp form. Most sampires carry around a few extra pieces to bump it up to 110/115 when they need to cast it. When you build the suit you can compesate for the 705 cap by adding 15 chiv to a ring or braclet.

    Bushido its pretty easy to train but can be slow above 110. Necro is easy and fast.

    okay then im droping necro to 99 instead of a new training, if its fast macroable :)
    so this template is fine you think? i just need 80 chiv instead of 65, then ill drop parry for a while and get some + parry jewelry later :)

    just wondering on the 60 parry. Is that enough, or is it rounded out with parry jewels, and if so, what is the target?

    thanks for the info

    I was shooting for
    120 sword
    120 bushido
    120 parry
    100 anatomy
    100 tactics
    99 necro
    61 chiv

    I roll whith that templeate and found no use dropping parry for 3-4 dmg per second in chiv

    You can still kill anytyhign solo in game with the old template

    You need a total of 300 skill points between weapon, bushido, and parry to receive the bonus lower mana cost. I don't notice big difference sinse I dropped from 120 parry to 60 parry.

    I do know I need to get more HCI. Even with 120 swords, I swing like a drunk white male...swinging at a pinata...at a trailer park party...on America's Funniest Home Videos.

    Leggings of Bane and then +13/15 on each ring and watch and ur ar cap for HCI, put the mace and shield glasses on for the 30 hit lower defense and you'll never miss.

    Lightning strike FTW too, +50 HCI.

    My rule is: Play whatever template you have fun with.


    I remember at one point I went almost 6 months playing nothing but my blacksmith...and had a lot of fun doing so.

    I personally prefer wraith form over vamp form, tried both and went back to wraith. Wraith helps keep ur mana up, does not have the -40 fire resist, and only requires 40 necro to never fail casting curse weapon. Only real drawback is no horse. Curse wep = 50% life leech vamp form = 20% life leech.

    While wraith form sounds very similar to vampiric form, those two are different playstyles. Using curse weapon for keeping your health up lowers your karma to a point, where using chiv becomes nearly useless.

    The sampire also likes to make use of an armored swamp dragon for extra damage mitigation which means you need to be mounted. So yeah, it's two different playstyles.
     
  25. sirrojen

    sirrojen Guest

    I really only use chiv for enemy of one (which is not impacted by karma loss) and the once in a while the occasional close wounds and poison cure. I personally would rather have 30% more life leech then 20% damage mitigation that may end in the middle of a fight if the barding breaks. I would love to be able to be mounted in general, but when I tried vampire form I just could not leech enough life.

    my actualy FINAL template for the bushido would look like that: (705 skillcap :( )

    120 Fencing
    120 Tactics
    120 Bushido
    66 parry ( for the 300 bushido+parry+fencing bonus )
    100 Anatomy
    99 Necromancy
    80 Chiv

    any suggestions, anything went wrong with it? should be okay i hope :)


    For my Mage ill actualy going something like that:
    120 Magery
    120 eval
    120 Focus
    120 Mystic
    120 Spellweaving
    105 Meditation ( next bonus on 110 right? )


    Thanks alot :)

    I'd personally take a hit on ur parry in favor of max anat. I also use imbued rings/bracelets to boost my skils above my skill cap.
     
  28. Doran

    Doran Guest

    So anatomy is realy only for the extra damage? It not affects the necro or bushidi healing or anything else? Then maybe switch to 100 parry and only 60 anazomy?

    someone gave me a clue about healing , droping some tactics for healing, could it be a good point?
