Hi guys. I've been lurking here for a couple of months and I thought I'd be able to make this template work with everything I've read. So my template is: 100 Bushido 100 Swords 100 Tactics 100 Parrying 100 Anatomy 100 Necromancy 100 Spirit Speak. Stats: STR: 80 DEX: 80 INT: 65 I will eventually take some skills up to 110. I know this is a very basic template - I am not very good at this. And that's the problem really. I'm just doing really badly. I can kill a lot of things, and fight numerous enemies at once, but the tougher enemies are so far beyond me it is not even funny. I was going to drop Spirit Speak maybe for healing and drop some tactics for chiv, but what would anyone suggest? I'm new to using necromancy so I have been more or less trying it out, hence why it's higher than it probably needs to be. I'm wondering what advice anyone has specifically about which skills I don't need, what levels I need things at and how to enhance these skills with items. I'm also unsure about how to balance out the karma between necromancy and chivalry. Ok well, thanks in advance guys, sorry for such a waffley question.
