Minimum skill required for Doom

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by imported_xStrikerx, Mar 22, 2008.

  1. Right now my template is:
    90.2 anatomy
    75.0 chivilry (locked)
    110.0 focus (locked)
    77.0 healing
    86.8 parry
    53.6 resist
    79.1 swords
    89.4 tactics

    My armor has:
    17 LMC
    44 HCI
    43 DCI
    3 StamR
    2 HPR
    45 DI

    After items, my stats are:
    113 STR (106 HP)
    140 DEX (145 stam)
    50 INT (50 mana)

    I've been killing ogre lords since just before 70 in swords but I'm getting bored and would like to know when I would be able to survive in Doom. Also, is there somewhere else that would be good for training right now?

    Sure. As long as there was a crowd, you'd be OK. You'd have no chance trying to solo anything though.

    As setnaffa said, you can certainly survive. Bigger picture though....while you may 'live', you arent going to be very productive w/ only 80 swords.

    DF has 120 wrestling.....meaning you are not going to hit him very much, even if someone has a hit lower defense going or disco.

    Min to be productive for me would be Gm weapon and 20+HCI. The rest will take care of itself because when you get to Gm weapon, you'll probably be close or at GM anat and tact for the damage bonuses.

    While you may be able to kill OL's at this time, they arent ideal for gaining as the high end where you are currently is even to well above you in points. Earth Ele's seem to work really well, as do trogs.....because they are more in the 70-90 range, which is your sweet spot right now for gaining.
  4. At 65, I was sick of whacking trolls with no effort so I killed some titans and cyclopedean warriors for a while. Then went to ogre lords because titans were a little too tough with low healing, couldnt gain much swords. I just cant stand killing stuff that has almost no chance to kill me even if I go afk, at least I can train healing with ogre lords.

    I think I may try at 90 skill when I get my 2nd weapon special and maybe pickup a soulseeker or other blade with mana/stam leeches.
  5. unrelated question i'll just ask here, does SDI affect hit spell effects on weapons?

    Nope. It has no effect. the Hit Spell on a weapon uses a pre-determined equivalent to Evaluate Intelligence (i.e. you get the bonus from EI without needing the skill), but SDI has no effect.

    I think you can start gaining against OL's at 80. Are you already gaining off them? They are a good choice to GM Melee, Anatomy, and Tactics. I believe they can take you all the way to 120 if you want.
  7. I've been gaining on OLs since 70, i think they may be better that other things at that level since they can take lots of hits (no running between or waiting for spawn like with trolls). I just have a good suit for it. I also have +63 stats on my gear.
  8. i got sick of OL's too, then I switched to fan dancers for a bit (take longer to kill, they destroy armor fast though)

    I highly recommend troggs in painted caverns though. They die quick yes, but its a nonstop spawn of atleast 2 out to try and eat ya. Gains very fast, and good money too with a soulseeker. they will take you past gm very easily.
