Lifestealers - Best Pet for Ripping them a New One?

Discussion in 'UO Tamer' started by Bella, May 25, 2012.

    Ohhh... I hate these things! I am working on the Tur Mur snowglobe quest with my tamer and am having a bit of a time with them. Seeing that they are low on cold resist, I brought my fully trained white wurm in and promptly died within a minute because I attracted more than one lifestealer. By the time I was able to call my pet to me, it was dead too. Now I HAVE to train it back up to GM (because I can't stand the thought it isn't GM anymore... it's a sickness) and back in the stables he goes. Poor thing... never sees the light of day anymore. But I digress...

    I also tried my greater dragon and cusidhe against the lifestealers and these guys seem to fair better but, considering I have to kill ten lifestealers, they take a long time to kill with either of these type pets and I'd like to use a pet that can chomp through them quicker than I seem able to now. Any suggestions? Or will I have to just be patient?

    I tried the hunters guide but didn't see lifestealers listed.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Bella - I added Lifestealers to the UOCraft Best Battle Pet tool based on their resists and damage output listed in UOGuide. Here's what it came up with (I would go with a cu sidhe):

    You chose to fight:
    MonsterVulnerable ToLocation
    Lifestealer cold damage, fire damage Ter Mur NW Lava Shore
    Pet Analysis:
    PetDamage Type
    Cu Sidhe energy, cold
    Nightmare physical, fire
    White Wyrm physical, cold
    Bella and Nimuaq like this.
