ABC Archer (armor review)

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Ansio, Jul 30, 2009.

    I wanted to get some input on my suit for an ABC archer. I mostly plan on doing group activities, not so much solo stuff.

    Med-able suit.
    110 Hit Points
    150 Dex / 180 Stam
    74 Mana

    LMC 7
    HCI and HLD 30
    DCI 14

    MR 4
    HR 4
    SR 11

    I also have 60 focus just for a little MR and SR bonus(Left over points). So far I have only hunted Ogre Lords, Lich lords, Greater Dragons, and daemons. So far I have not ran into any kind of mana problem. I plan to do some peerless and spawns in a group.
  2. You need more mana regen, and LMC if you can. The RBC is perfect for archers. You should give it a try. With what you have now, you'll run out of mana on a regular basis. As a comparison, my archer has MR 9, a mana pool of 105, and LMC of 15 (or 22 depending on ring). If you have extra points, you should dump Focus and put those points into higher Tactics, and taking some of your more important skills to 120, especially Bushido.

    Right now my skills are:
    120 Archery, Bushido, Tactics, Anatomy
    100 healing
    80 Chiv
    60 Focus
  4. I'd suggest you add Resist in. I go with 90 myself, and find it invaluable in being able to come out in the top damage dealers on a consistent basis, for the simple fact that when cursed, I don't lose a tick in swing speed. Apples have timers that you have to wait out, time that someone with Resist would still be going strong.

    I've posted this before, but just so you can compare, here is the template I use, and keep in mind that I cap out on damage easily:

    120 Archery
    120 Bushido
    115 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    90 Resist
    75 Chiv

    I used to have a low MR/low LMC suit.

    I recently (about a month ago) switched my entire suit around so that I could fit the rune beetle carapace and LMC pieces in. Now I have 36 lmc and 6 MR as well as 100 meditation where Connor has 90 resist.

    Now even without mana leeching bows, I can pretty much chain my special moves all day long. I wouldn't play in Doom without switching out the med for resist, but in all other situations, it suits me perfectly.

    Is there a reason to keep chiv at 75? Could I drop chiv to 70 and anat to 100 and take 90 resist?
  7. I found 75 to be just the right amount of Chiv that the failure rate on EoO is negligible. Any lower and the fail rate was just too often for my tastes.

    Thanks for all the advice and help Connor. I will share my shiva with you.
