Axe Question

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by JRedbeard, Mar 11, 2008.

    Howdy folks,

    Recently returning to the game and starting to work on a character and wanted the advice of some more experienced players.

    The character is a gatherer and already has 100 mining / lumberjacking. Also 97 swordsmanship.

    I want to use an axe to take advantage of the small dmg bonus from LJ but was also thinking of trying parrying...

    I guess my question is: Are there any good 1h axes out there, or should I just forget parrying and get a big meaty 2hander.

    Thanks for any help.

    Is this a dumb question and no one wants to tell me or do you guys really not know?

  3. imo just get parry and bushido and then just parry with the big meaty 2h axe :p

    Actually, LJ isnt worth the damage bonus anymore, and the only 1-handed axe I can think of is the War Axe which doesnt get the LJ bonus cuz its a mace wep. So like the other poster said, do away with the LJ unless you want to gather wood b/c there are better skills worth 100 points.

    I believe the OP has LJ because he's a....Lumberjack. He probably wants a good template to defend himself if he's gathering logs in Fel.

    A good options (keeping LJ and Mining) might be this...

    100 Swords
    100 Mining
    100 Parry
    90 Bushido
    90 Healing
    75 Tactics
    65 Chivalry

    The Bushido allows you to parry with a 2-h axe. You'll have to use Chiv to cure Poison and you'll need to carry a trapped box to un-paralyze yourself. You can use evasion to fend off magical attacks.
  6. i also believe you can use a hatchet (1 handed swords) that gets the LJ bonus

    Hatchets do get the LJ damage bonus but they are a 2 handed weapon.

    Thanks for the template help, that is absolutely correct. I am not picking LJ to try and uberfy my warrior, i am picking swords to try and defend my miner/LJ! Hah. =)

    I I used to run mining on my crafting character but then I said to myself that I wanted each of my characters to have the opportunity at getting a fame / karma title, so I created a new guy, transferred mining / LJ over.

    I guess you could say im interested in skills that will allow me to PvM well (for a title and a bit of variety) and help me defend myself against players (not necessarily going to charge in and try to kill people, will probably be attempting to flee).

    Seems like when someone approaches they always throw out a paralyze right off the bat, so maybe resist magic would be good to have?

    Fel resource gatherer.This is a template that is perfect for any fel Gatherer. This is for survival, not for combat. You can cut logs, mine ore, gather leather, and have great defenses.

    120 swords
    120 bushido
    120 parry
    100 mining
    100 lumberjack
    100 resist
    60 ish chivalry

    With your resist, you won't die every time to paralysis/mana drains/vampires. With your swords/bushido parry you can use evade.

    Easy method. You see red guy running at you. You hit Evade then journey away. This gives you max defense (make sure you have max DCI, dont worry about hci). So on your mining suit you want max resists and max dci. Those are the 2 main items. HCI, etc isn't important because you aren't going to be fighthing alot. Healing is done with potions/chivalry. If you want to fight, pick another template. If you want to survive easy gathering resources, this is a great template. You can even handle elementals with a decent suit/axe.
