Focused Spellcaster, SDI & Ninjitsu

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by Luke Carjacker, Jan 23, 2012.

  1. I haven't gone the focused route yet but was thinking of giving it a try. I was talking with someone with a focused Necro template who also has ninjitsu. I seem to recall that ninjitsu, bushido & chivalry were among the skills that negated the SDI bonus for focused spellcasters, but he was convinced that he still got the higher SDI cap.

    Does anyone know for sure if ninjitsu (and bushido & chivalry while we're at it) will work in a focused spellcaster template? Is this intended or a glitch?

    According to the publish notes ninjitsu, bushido, and chivalry limit the SDI cap.

    You could always go to TC and test it to find out.
  3. I went over to TC to test and I couldn't find anything out. I'm not sure if I was doing something wrong.

    First, I set up a char with 30 SDI. Took off all skills and added Necro & Spirit. My menu showed 30 SDI and damage against a 70s suit was 16-18 poison strike. I then added on 120 ninjitsu and my menu still showed 30 SDI and indeed damage was in the same range. I tried bushido, same. I then tried adding 120 magery and it still showed 30 SDI and the damage range was the same.

    I then tried to pull up the titles menu to see if I could designate myself as a "focused Necro" and didn't find it in the menu. So, I don't know. Is this not part of TC? BTW, I ran to felucca and the menu showed the same thing, 30% SDI.

    titles have an impact on SDI?
  5. No, but if you are a focused spellcaster you can select the title. If you unpermitted skills you cannot select the title.
