    been thinkin of a miner i can run with that is well... invincible.

    this is what i have come up with so far, please post any ideas to improve
    (char only for mining, as i have a different char for smith/craft skills)

    100 mining (duh)
    115 lore (tali = +5 lore) = 120 lore
    85 taming (jewels + tali = +35 taming) = 120 taming
    90 vet
    100 swords
    100 tactics
    80 chiv
    50 med
    125 str
    50 dex
    80 int

    pets to all monsters and reds, except shadow eles, swords + tactics will take them down
    chiv to help with shadow eles, and to recall
    med for some extra mana for chiv

    then for the pets to go with, not quite sure but a packy for one cuz only one slot and can hold 1600 stones.

    so for the 4 leftover slots mab a dread mare? or a cu side

    if i do cu side then i can drop vet as well for like resist spells or something

    I'd suggest a fire beetle, fully trained - takes 3 slots, and I don't need a pack animal with one, and am able to go through 8 garg picks (and the ore off the elementals) before having to drop ingots at the bank.

    Alternates for the two remaining slots might be fully trained packies, Frenzies (to give you a mount while the beetle and other frenzy fight, or 2 pets with pack instinct), or a bake Kitsune.

    Not so invincible but I can take all elementals and run a PK or two off.

    Mining 105
    Smithing GM
    Archery GM
    Anatomy GM
    Healing GM
    Tactics GM
    Chiv 80 ish
    Some focus

    Also when you have a fully trained fire bug and say all kill at a PK then start sticking arrows in his/her arse some think twice (or get dead) and go look for easier prey. Good PK's will toast you no matter what if you can't get away.
    Truthfully I haven't come across a PK in a very long time while out mining.

    Pets will die very quickly fighting a Val ellie. Tried to train a pet on one and it just ended up dead (the Pet).

    Also increase your dex to 90 and drop int down to 40. you dont need alot of mana for this Temp.

    Drop Med

    Drop Tame, lore, and vet

    110 parry
    110 anat
    100 heal
    also raise
    swords to 110
    Tactics to 110

    so here's what I think you should have
    110 swords
    110 anat
    110 tactics
    110 parry
    100 heal
    100 mining
    80 chiv

    125 str
    90 dex
    40 int

    also add +5 mining gloves to your suit to have a better success rate at smelting

    hey no fair Tycolby, you stole Cerridewin. :D That's the temp. she had. Then the silly girl traded in heal for busido and added necro and spirt speak. She has now come to her sences and it back to the first. Works really well haven't die to an elemental for a while.

    Any tips for training a fire beetle with a non-tamer character who can't lore well (and isn't human anymore, so doesn't have the JOAT lore anymore)?

    I'd ask in the tamer forum, but this isn't a tamer character. I have a fairly well trained blue beetle, but my fire is very new. :) Bonded, so now I can tame her.

    Even an elf can lore at 0 skill- just takes a LOT of attempts.

    As for training, my favorite low-end training avenue for things like a swampy is to isolate an orc mage (like from one of the Malas orc forts, that are mostly near mining areas), and have the pet attack it, using greater heal or close wounds to heal the pet. Typically, the orc mage will cast healing spells to stay alive, allowing the fight to go much longer. IF the orc is too easy, try a ratman mage in Ilshenar. This is mainly to train up resist, while getting some combat gains.

    Now, for purely combat gains, dig up a shadow iron elemental, and get it and the pet fighting, with you healing the pet. If you have a friend that's a vet, have them help you keep it alive, if necessary - otherwise when you run low on mana, you'll have to hop on the beetle, and ride off to recover mana to heal with, before returning to the fight.
