    So I have a pet doing the tanking, and I have fencing or swords at my disposal. How do I get the most damage possible ? Do I need a slayer if I'm using EoO and Cons Wpn ? I"m also using Bushido/honor and HML with AI. I don't need to worry about DCI or taking damage as I rarely if ever get hit. But I wanna pack as much damage as I can, with whichever wpn is the best for it.

    thanks

    It depends on what you're fighting whether or not using AI or double strikes is the better strategy.

    Having a specific slayer (as opposed to super slayer) is still the most damage.
    Super slayer + Perfection, or Super Slayer + EoO gets you there.

    If you don't use a slayer, but the monster has a slayer, then you aren't able to reach maximum damage.

    There is a long discussion of these facts in a sticky thread.

    Other than that, since you haven't told us how much stamina you have, you're the only one of us who is capable of comparing your stamina to the weapon speeds to determine which one is best...

    Ya what is your stam...what is your ssi... What is the rest of your template

    Is your build designed to chain AI?

    Sorry for not revealing the whole scenario. I use 2 clients when I'm hunting, so my tamer and pets do the tanking, my 2nd acct is the weaponeer. My tamer also runs the provo bard songs, so I get the extra hci and DI that comes from that. I'm not that concerned about my suit, I have the necessary studded for 55 lmc, and do chain AI with a 100 hml bladed staff. I'm killing dread pirates and UO Guide has limited info on them. Is there a slayer for human npcs ? I just want to maximize my time by doing as much damage as quickly as possible. There's 0 issue with surviving the fight, at least so far. :)

    only 95 dex, but 137 stam, and I have 0 ssi for now, on anything. I don't mind raising my dex to the max if needed, because again, I don't really need to have perfectly balanced stats/suit for survival. I read in another thread where someone was using LJ as well. I didn't think that bonus still existed. I have GM LJ at my disposal too if that will be better ? I've been really ignorant about how to make best use of a weapon. I was looking at it all wrong thinking I needed the fastest for the most damage, instead of paying attention to the damage over time instead.

    Hehe, still pirate hunting on siege. One thing you could do is to get to 150 stam+20 ssi or 180 stam+5 ssi. That gives you max swingspeed for your bladed staff.
    I dont know resists on your target, not sure if doublestrike instead of ai would be faster. If doublestrike is faster, then you could use lumberjack+doubleaxe. Never really did pirate hunting.
    I believe there is no slayer for human npcs, but you could try mage slayer tali, undead or repond slayer. Thats the only things that comes to mind that might work.

    Yeah, Im not really hunting them as much as getting them out of the way when they get in my way. ;) I was thinking Repond too, but wasn't sure. There are so many threads about wpns and dmg and slayer and EoO and it gets confusing, to me at least.

    My Tamer is currently a 4/6 Chiv/Necro/Macer in Vamp Form. I tank on him and use the pets for armor corruption or pack instinct.
