What's wrong with my warrior?

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by lit2fly, Jan 19, 2012.

    My warrior has the following skills:

    120 Swords
    110 Anatomy
    110 Tactics
    110 Healing
    100 Focus
    100 Resist
    75 Chivalry

    With some decent armor / weapon, I WAS able to solo 2 - 3 Ogre Lord MANY years years ago.

    Now I'm back to UO, I recalled to the Ogre Lord spot that I went often, guess what..... my warrior died within a minute after surrounded by 2 Ogre Lords.... what' wrong with my warrior? What UO has changed since my departure? and what I need to change now?

    In addition, I found that the healing by bandages is painfully slow.... I guess I waited for 5 something seconds with 100 dex..... isn't healing useless now?

    Why not use the chiv spell to heal?

    Switch out healing and focus for Necro and Bushido and your nearly at a sampire.

    The math for leeching back life has been changed. Well nerfed. If your running 150 dex you should be healing every 4 seconds. That would be my guess on that.

    140 dex are needed for 4 sec bandages.
    Using an average imbued suit and weapon, 2 ogre lords should be no problem for your char.
    Would be easier to help you out if we would know the stats of your suit and weapon.

    Hi,

    If your taking damage, then it is you're armor. If your not doing much damage, then it is your weapon. There is nothing wrong with your skill levels for fighting Ogre Lord's, unless the characters stats are incorrect for a warrior.

    Unless its changed this is the formula that I have for healing time.
    8 seconds - [(dex - 80)/20] it rounds down for 150 dex to 4 seconds as opposed to 4.5. That is what is on UOguide.

    Hi, If you scroll down to the bottom section of this page to Approximate Healing Speeds, you can see that 140 gives you 4 sec. heal time.

    UO Stratics - Healing Skill

    I have always used this formula.

    For healing, its [11-(Dex/20)]=T(sec), so 140 dex would be 11-140/20=4(sec)where all fractions round up. This is why when people talk about dex they talk about it in increments of 20 normally. With dex capped at 150 now (with items), the fastest you can self heal is 4 seconds.

    I think you need better suit.

    p.s.
    Drop focus for bushido or parry
    Get chiv to 90+ and karma to 20k+

    Are you wearing a suit with 70 in each of the five resist types (physical, fire, cold, poison, and energy)?

    I am using the UO guide formula which I believe is more up to date on this issue but it would be an easy thing for us to test.

    i used to swear by 120 parrying. I recently switched to this sampire temp (which is almost exactly the same as Lynk's latest).

    120 Swords (using a Longsword w/ 35 SSI & 180+ stamina)
    120 Bushido
    120 Tactics
    120 Anatomy
    99 Necromancy
    81 Chivalry (+9 on a jewelry item)
    60 Parry

    I notice that I do get hit more, but the extra damage output makes up for more than the difference. I can still solo Navrey with the webs. You have to use evasion and confidence more now, but it works. The pro is that everything dies faster with increased damage output. So yes, 60 Parry with 120 Bushido is viable. Tweak your technique to adjust your gameplay and know when you need to run.

    You need a heavy stamina leech when your fighting the ogre lords. They dont do a ton of damage, but they destroy your stamina. Without stamina, you can't heal or swing fast enough to survive.

    Without stamina leech your going to want to joust them. OR just use Lynk's Sampire template, I switched and haven't looked back.

    I have noticed that when I fight something tough I usually have 15-25 less stamina. So with 161 max stamina i usually swing like with 120.
    With 185 stamina every hit will drop you under 180. Is a Longsword really better than a Broadsword?

    It is important for fastest or faster swing keep.
    You keep faster swing,you hit and your weapon have stamina leech.
