Why even play a warrior

    We all know that the best pvp mage and beat the best pvp warrior. mages just are crazy when people learn the template and go crazy with it. so what does uo do they bump magery even more wtf now paralyze break your target i guess those nothing but gank guilds been whispering in uo ear again. before i could have the weakest member of the gank figured out target him run from the gank pausing for a moment to get a swing on the weak link and when he gets 1/4 life turn around and burn him. rinse recycle repeat now you get hit with paralyze makes it even harder to beat gank squads i think you can do something like attack last target or something like that but still its just one more step that they are making mages/gank squads more powerful. i say have some kinda spell defense property that can make spells do less dmg and somehow only work for warriors. just my thoughts TYR

    The Bushido move Evade allows you to dodge spells and fire breaths.

    You mean like "Mana Drain"?
    Try the Abyssal Blade on the SA Artifacts page.

    pretty sure its far easier to play any sort of dexer and be effective than any mage template...

    i can count the # of epic/good pvp mages on my home server on ONE hand.....

    also maybe you haven't paid attn to fire eater and the other eaters....

    but i agree in pvp playing a non-archer dexer is tough with all the runners. though instead of complaining, perhaps a constructive suggestion would be way better

    Are you suggesting that 5 moving shot archers aren't more lame?

    How long has resisting spells been out anyway...? Uh.....

    Iv always seen mages as WAY more powerfull in pvp and have been for 7+ years, the only thing is.... Not many people want/or know how to play a mage ;)

    Everyone can play a n00b archer or n00b on what ever template they didnt nerf this time for them to get the upper hand, BUT... Mages have always been and always will be the best pvp template as it takes so much work to learn your template to be good at it.

    So i say let mage's be, as they are the best and have had to work hard to get there [i know ill never get to pvp lvl mage any time soon]. Not many people want to work to be the best they just want a quick "**** and spank" to put it crudelly!!

    There NOT looking for that cream of the crop by working hard for it ;)

    yea sorry bout me crying on over used and super lame tactics that are mostly used by less then avg pvpers a nutless monkey(lynk+garm) could pull off a gank which you proabbly run and tell people how your so good after. ill give credit where credits due yes to be top notch mage takes far greater time but i just feel that warriors arent getting any love i mean heck most of the people that i cant kill is because i can get next to them long enough for me to swing on em.and im not even going to go there on hacks. 9 out of 10 times im facing either a mage gank or a stealth archer gank all respect and honor has been lost in uo and for people like me that spends my free time trying to seperate people from the pack and 1 v 1 fight them. and about the whole i got beat by a mage thing it seems like as a warrior you hit the celling and only be able to be so good where mages can create mixed templates and become even stronger ex necro mage mystic mage tamer mage ............ I would just like a lil bit more ammo to fit a mage with i mean crap i proabbly an avg mage and even i can small heal a dexxor wasting all his mana on specials.TYR

    If you can't get kills on a dexer then.. 'ur doin it rong'.

    Dexers have the ability to do extreme burst damage. It sounds like you aren't playing your template properly. As for ganks, UO is an MMO. People use teamwork now. Group fights are fun.

    On some shards I play solo and I play as a dexer. It is difficult to lure people away for a 1 v 1, but with a dexer played properly you should be able to do burst damage and take someone out in a 2 v 1 if they aren't cross healing properly.

    If you don't like playing solo maybe you could try to be likeable and join a guild.

    1) Drink Greater Strength
    2) Apply bandage = first attacks form mage is healed fast
    3) Special move from kryss poison (DP)
    4) High mr regen from focus = special move from spear paralyze
    5) Divine fury = mage dead
