I had my sampire on my buddies UO account, but he quit so I am in the process of building up a new one on my account. Since it had been like... 10 years since I regularly used a shield and seeing as how you can get cool ones now from the enhanced loot, I decided my new warrior would rely on one. That means forging bushido, and relying on eoo/cw rather than perfection for my damage boosts. Obviously I miss out on the other great facets of bushido too but whatever. I wanna use a shield. So I am working on 120 Mace 120 Parry 120 Tactics 120 Chiv 100 Anatomy (raising this to 120 when I can find a scroll, and using the next SS I can get my hands on to build up to 120 resist to swap out for more magic heavy encounters) 100 Necro. 20 left over for I don't know what. Probably nothing. Plan on using vamp embrace of course, and a war axe with Hit Mana Leech, SSI, DI, HLA, HLD/Slayer for AI's, keeping stam up with heavy armor and divine fury, and try to find a sweet 10% SSI, 10%+ DCI shield to bless (hopefully not a pipe dream) to get my swing to 1.25 with stam boosts on my armor. Jewels with HCI/DCI/Str/Int/DI On the suit Stamina/Mana/HP resists where needed, and LMC. Being on siege, and kind of on the poorish side I may not be able to maintain the highest stats at all times, but all stats as high as I can get them. Not really expecting to solo bosses or anything obviously, but hoping for some higher level stuff. Unbound EVs or the like. Not really sure. Haven't played regularly in ages, so not sure what monsters would be good targets. Anyone have similar set ups? If not does it sound sensible?
