Combat and Being a Warrior/Sammy/Pally

    I am just restarting UO after a several year break and unfortunately my old characters got deleted. I worked my mage back up to a point where most mid level stuff is cake and some harder stuff I can handle solo also.

    I always wanted to play a warrior type in UO but never seemed to be able to live long enough to do it. I see posts of guys soloing Doom bosses and I can barely stand up to Orc Lords sometimes.

    I realize that my skills are really low right now. Mid 60 for pretty much everything. However was just wanting some pointers on how you survive fights. If I try to stand toe to toe with something I usually die unless I am hitting really well. Bandages take too long to apply and I end up having to run away. Is it just a matter of having really low skill? I also do no have much in the way of a resist suite. Maybe 40s in all. I had a GM Swordsman before but never played him because I never seemed to be able to take anything on solo.

    Low resist are your problem just as much as low skill. Todays game is alot more item based then what your use to. Resist caps are 70 in all, unless your an elf then energy resist is capped at 75.

    Your resist really need to be all in the 60s. I`d strongly recomend getting your Physical, & Fire resist up to 60`s plus level first.

    You can actually get a 4 second bandage. However, it requires 140 dex I believe. You really need to post your template goals in order for any real advise to be given.

    In general get your armor resist to 60`s, & your skills to 100. & you should be able to fight most mid level mobs, & demons.

    Standard Pally/Sam would be:

    110 to 120 weapon skill
    100+ Parry
    110+ Bushido
    100 Tac
    100 Ana
    100 Heal
    70+ Chiv

    In addition to what Zalan said:

    Defense chance increase: Try to get 45% DCI, it makes all the difference in the world!
    Tactics: Don't forget to use leeching weapons (stamina and mana in PvM), fast weapons (no halberds!) and use all the benificial spells at your disposal. Enemy of one (as long as you only fight one on one), consecrate weapon, divine fury, concentrate and lightning strikes are very useful. That fast, mana leeching weapon lets you keep casting. If you don't have one, then you need meditation or focus on your template until you get one.
