    I need your thoughts and recommendations. I've got six characters built on my primary account. I'm having a difficult time deciding what I should do with the final character. I know there are a few significant classes I've never played (Tamers, Bards, Thieves, Weavers, etc) so I don't know what I'm missing. These are the current chars on the account (with item skill bonuses included):

    1 - Sampire (120 Swords, 120 Bush, 120 Parry, 100 Tact, 100 Anat, 99 Necro, 84 Chiv)
    2 - Mystic Dexxer (120 Fencing, 120 Myst, 120 Focus, 100 Tact, 100 Anat, 100 Heal, 84 Chiv)
    3 - Necro-mage (120 Magery, 120 Eval, 120 Necro, 120 SS, 120 Resist, 120 Med)
    4 - Mystic-mage (120 Magery, 120 Eval, 120 Myst, 120 Focus, 120 Resist, 100 Scribe, 20 Med)
    5 - Wraith Thrower (120 Throw, 115 Bush, 100 Tact, 100 Anat, 100 Heal, 85 Chiv, 70 SS, 40 Necro)
    6 - Crafter (120 Smith, 120 Tailor, 100 Tinker, 100 Carpenter, 100 Arms Lore, 100 Mining, 80 Magery - 120 Imbuing on Soulstone)

    I primarily PvM but occasionally PvP. I do a lot of fel champ spawns and have rotated chars through factions. I like to solo bosses, but also play with groups. I was thinking about any of the following but this list is not inclusive and none is standing out as the "must have" addition to my lineup.

    - Necro Tamer
    - Stealth Tamer
    - Disco Mystic Mage
    - Disco Thrower
    - Provo Thrower
    - Thief
    - Mage Tamer (PvP)
    - Stealth Archer (PvP)
    - Parry Mage (PvP)
    - Thrower/Fencer (PvP)

    What is your favorite template/char type that I'm missing? I'm looking for something fun to play. It can be on the list or something totally different. Thanks for your inputs!

    Do a necro tamer.
    115 magery
    120 eval
    60 necro
    80 ss
    110 taming/lore
    120 weaving

    Requires + skills. stack sdi and use slayer books. With your wraith and samp you will be a PvM wrecking crew.

    I see a disco/tamer is not in your list but it is one of my favorite characters to play. It's capable of soloing a lot of high end content, plus it has the added benefit of wearing a luck suit in Shame, etc. I also have a pvm thief which is fun to play. It's also useful because you can acquire balms for your other characters, steal items for turn in points, etc.

    Bard's are a blast. Bard + Spellweaving makes for an interesting template.Mystic bard too being able to toss RCs in conjuction to barding skills.

    Bard's can turn dungeons upside down.

    I just made a bard mage on another shard, and had so much fun with her that I'm copying the build on Europa - in that same previously unused 7th slot.
    she has 120 mage, med, eval and 120 music, provo, disco. I'm finding I can take her places my peace tamer wouldn't go because of being overwhelmed by spawn. She does need full MR and LMC on her kit, and I re-forged for her a dagger and shield with MR that she simply holds while running masteries.

    Well... I only have 2 characters on two accounts cause of the siege 1 character limit, but if I had a extra slot on each I would add more crafting skills, and dedicated a character to being a thief, since I usually just don't bother with the hassle of stoned skill swapping for a rougeish romp. I used to be a big thief back in the day, It would be fun to get into again.

    Mystic/T-Hunter with fishing on a stone. That would open up the world of Tmaps and SoS.
