    I want to start playing on SP, my question is since you can only have 1 character on that shard and i prefer s Assassin/Thief character if there is a way to have a decent template And be able to do both?

    in my opinion you may struggle to find a happy medium.... depending on your skill cap (i am assuming 720) you could go for something like this.

    120 stealing
    100 stealth
    100 hiding
    100 snooping
    110 mage
    110 eval
    80 poisoning.

    you will always be at a disadvantage to someone geared for PvP though as you have a 50/50 split between thief and mage, you can boost those skills with ar and jewels but in my opinion i would just pick supporting skills for your thief, poisoning is always fun, you could always try for surprise tactics / steal bandies to aid you in killing dex gimps or stealing regs from a mage before you start a fight but its all down to your play style. did you have a template in mind?

    Well forgot the thief part then, I went to be a fighter type Assassin, so what template should i use for that? Im not a big fan of magery :lick:

    could drop magery/eval for fencing and tactics, would allow you to use wep specials as well as infectious strike so that may be the way to go... no way of healing though....

    if your dropping the stealing/hide/snoop stealth side of things it might be worth posting on the siege forum instead,

    sorry Nickster but you're way off the mark on this one.

    This is my cousin's Siege template, Mr. Sly, Assassin Extraordinaire.
    Let me see if I can recall what his skills are.

    120 fencing
    90'ish poisoning
    100 hiding
    80 stealth
    115 ninjitsu
    100 snoop
    90'ish stealing

    something along those lines. he's a monster too.

    target Cure pots...steal pots while DP'ing target>deathstrike>focus attack>focus attack>focus attack. run em down in wolf form.
    shadowstrike if you get into trouble.
    get a nice Assassin spike with Harm or Lightning and damage increase.

    you don't need tactics for Poisoning and Shadowstrike special moves.
    I've seen this guy absolutely destroy people on Siege. I've literally spent hours just watching him, lol.:D

    good luck.
