horrific beast templete

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by shadowking, Jul 5, 2009.

    any 1 else tried to make a templete around horrific beast?
    swords 120
    parry 120
    anatomy 100
    tactics 100
    healing 100
    necro 60
    chiv 70
    with beast form u get +25% damage +1 hp a sec, and with healing 100 no fail heals: healing 36-60 every 6 sec. i will be able to use weapon specials still but not able to cast other spells. with a good leeching weapon should be ok, would have to be a slayer type also. I figure i would cast Enemy of one then horiffic beast before i engage mobs. any comments suggestions

    Not worth it IMO. You lose 100% DI and criticals from Bushido. You can't use consecrate weapon if you're fighting something with a resist different than your weapon's damage type. Life leech on weapons is pretty unreliable too. And if you get in too much trouble, you can't run away and heal with Close Wounds or cure with Cleanse by Fire.

    As above posted but the up side is the HPR from HB is on top of the HPR cap from the suit.

    For grinding parry it really is optimum!

    There are a few benefits to HB but the downside of no spells has always kept me from taking advantage of them.

    120 ninja dog form has about 4x the hpr of horrificbeast, with a hpr suit your health bar probably won't even move when training parry.

    the difference is the 120 ninja grind is one of the hardest in game.

    I could compare it to taming but that still sells it short!

    60 necro maybe 45 mins 120 ninja several months.

    That's a very good point, I assume many active accounts are bought and have a bunch of legendary skills but anyway yeah you'd have to be out of your mind to train ninja just because it's a damn useful training tool with a bit of imagination.

    I realise this is an ancient thread, but after also bumping into this today:


    I thought the OP's idea might be feasible?

    Incredible video. That guy builds some of the best melee templates I've ever seen.

    Wow,this is my old video at publish 88.
    template:
    Sword 120(+20 from hat), Tactics 120, Anatomy 120, Spell resist 120, Lumberjacking 100, Healing 100, Bushido 80, Necromancy 40
    maybe +60 any skill from jewel.

    Stats:
    hb.png
    and 20 HPR from Beast, 16 HPR from suits, 2HPR from fish pie

    weapon:
    hbweapon.png
    Exceptional Hatchet, 40% HLD, Balanced, 68% HLL, Demon Slayer, 96% HML, 100% Physical damage

    Bushido is for honor and special move mana reduction. Spell resistance is for Para proof and Mana drain reduction.

    Edited:
    non-focused spec necromancer can't cast part of mastery spells with horrific beast.
    Focused Eye, Toughness, Thrust and etc.
    Onslaught, Stagger and Pierce are castable.

    Ah, I should have known it was you! You put some pretty incredible videos and templates together.

    When I was at the 20th Anniversary party, I was speaking 1-on-1 with Kyronix for a bit and he also commented that you have some very impressive game play videos.

    Thank you for continuing to post here!!

    Oh really ? It is an honor to be surprised that my topic will come out at such a valuable opportunity.
    However, UO won't be too difficult because of to watch my videos.

    I dont know about 100% items cup, but i belive its sure under total 300% DI cap.
    Most sampires got 300% cap at top monsters, so the only bonus is 20 HPR & no damage reduction from swamp & no HitLifeDrain from Vamp form.
    I belive HB aren't useable for sampire.
