I'm playing around with my first bard/mage and I was hoping to get some pointers. I should note that I haven't played UO in a long time, so I am still readjusting and have very limited resources. Right now I am running a 100% LRC suit with mixed resists (25-50 per element). It's not that great as far as other bonuses either. The only special item I have is a Pendant of the Magi. Here's my current skills and where I think I want to take them: Magery 100 --120 Eval 21.3 -- 100 Med 59.4 -- 60 Music 99.7 -- 120 Peace 98.6 -- 120 Disco 50.2 -- 100 Provo 50.3 -- 100 Here's my list 'o questions: Does the final skill template look decent? What would you change? I thought about dropping Disco or Provo altogether to create a full 120 template. Which of those would you drop? I wonder how to balance my stats. I know I'll need a high Int for magic. But what about the balance of Str and Dex for a Mage/Bard? Could anyone tell me what I'm probably going to be aiming towards in regards to artifact gear? I don't expect you to spec out my full set, but any key items or attributes that I really shouldn't try to live without? Thanks for helping me out and sorry if these questions seem noobish. I'm studying threads as well, but I really just wanted to ask my own questions right out for input.
