    100 Mining
    100 LJ
    120 Swords
    100 Tactics
    100 Anatomy
    100 Healing
    100 Chiv

    You should be able to handle anything in game with that template, but you won't be able to solo bosses. Use Double Axe (WW) and Hatchet (AI) for the LJ Bonus.

    100 mining
    100-120 fishing
    100 lumberjacking
    100 magery
    100 meditation
    100 musicianship
    100 peacemaking

    Can do all your gathering, cast a summons as a companion while fishing, and the peacemaking helps you get away or hold off a monster if you get in a jam.

    Blacksmith is pretty awesome also and many people also put tailoring, so no bard skills. Bard skills are also pretty slow to gain. All depends what you intend to build/make, and what play style you want to support in your toons.

    I’m making a trammel mage he is my main so the crafter and gatherer is there to support him and later I’ll make a fel char, I also have a pirate I’ll play more later so going for the crafter and gatherer to support my chars is the idea on crafting stuff needed or repairs .

    I didn't quite go that route, but close.

    My first blacksmith is (roughly, after jewelry)

    120 Blacksmith
    120 Macing
    100 Mining
    100 Chivalry
    100 Anatomy
    100 Tactics
    100 Healing
    100 Parry
    (GM arms lore on soulstone)

    If I'd done LJ on that character, I'd have gone for swords, and would have dropped either healing or parry.
    The fun part of that template was the time I was mining in fel, disarmed a PK that attacked me, and beat them with my mace until they ran away seeing greyscale. Only happened once, but it was hilarious. They weren't expecting a miner with 120 real macing and a disarm weapon (mace).

    120 Animal Taming
    120 Animal Lore
    rest into gather skills.

    Train up a 5 slot fire beetle to solo everything in game whilst gathering in peace.
    or Train a Fire Beetle up to 4 slot and grab a Blue beetle.

    Hunt anywhere you like and use the fire beetle on aggressors and the blue beetle for extra storage space, mount up and ride off with all the goodies.
    (blue beetle is a walking backpack, fire beetle is a walking smelter)

    My pure 'Gatherer' is

    100 Magery (120 with Jewels)
    100 EI (120 with Jewels)
    100 Spellweaving
    120 Fishing
    100 Mining
    100 Lumberjacking
    100 Begging
    -----
    720

    Allows her to pretty much gather anything in game.

    The spellweaving is there mainly for gift of life and gift of renewal but when she has a full focus on nature's fury will take out a demon easily enough is quick to cast and is pretty effective on all mobs especially stuff like lizardmen, cows etc if you're gathering leathers etc. The magery will deal with all sea creatures etc.It is a really nice build for a pure gatherer but not to be used on any kinda high end boss.

    Halloween, all the rare drops require begging, so to have it means you get to gather those items when halloween is running:)

    I liked this thread as well, I've never made a pure gatherer, always made a pure 7x Crafter then soulstoned the rest of gathering and crafting skills on him, made a huge combined crafter gatherer.

    Never even thought of making a gatherer only.

    Might actually do this where I gave a spare slot.

    A fully trained fire beetle will have like 20+ HPR on it and since it will one shot about 99% of the things you will encounter whilst gathering it basically heals itself (the blue is the same if you want to take that higher)
    Obviously if you want to go "dungeon gathering" then a few tweeks would be required but on land, nothing will bother it.....well except Liches, they bother EVERYTHING!!!! *shudders*

    nb, I should also point out that since we don't have devs that can actually fault find code, the vanishing pet is still very much ingame. You can happily be mining away when all of a sudden the beetle runs at lightning speed about 17 screens away to kill a......rat. Gotta keep a close eye on them pets. (also why they will never fix the relog exploit, the only way to get your pet back sometimes)

    Tamers are just fun to play.
    I used to run around with a trained Eagle, it could solo Greater Dragons and did that get some funny looks from the Sampires running around the dungeons. lol, obviously it took longer but it was funny to see.
    Alas, so much wasted potential from the pet training re-vamp.....

    nb, when I left UO I released it back into the wild (it kept its stats/skills) so I apologise for anyone that tried to kill it and got the shock of their UO lives :D
