Needing some help for improving my bush war gameplay

    hello to everybody

    im needing some help to improve my gameplay with my bush war
    im running a bush war like this:

    mace 120
    bush 111
    parry 104
    anat 100
    tactics 100
    heal 90
    resist 80

    705.0 account

    weap 120 is ok, heal 90 is ok, tactics 100 is ok, anat 100 is ok
    resist 80 is a must for me. im not confortable w/o resist and i cant put more resist since i dont have more points
    i read on stratics page about bush and parrying. the best PARRY CHANCE results i obtained with 225 skill points would be 111 bush + 104 parry. that means 33% with 2h and 29 with 1h. im not sure about evasion bonus

    i do use pots, apples and drink lesser poison in case of out of apples to get out of a para situation

    gnarled staff (PB + CONCUSSION)
    diamond mace (CRUSH + CONC)
    talon bite (DISARM + CRUSH) http://uo.stratics.com/database/view.php?db_content=gameitem&id=2612&category=769

    using the noobish tactic of gnarled pb + hiryu all kill and dismount
    then ride hiryu back and hit'em on the floor

    im also using talon bite against dexxers. counter attack, disarm and crushing deals good damage
    the biggest problem with talon bite is the UBWS that makes me unable to cast evasion against mages

    diamond mace also deals good damage against some guys. but mine sucks. need a better one

    i like diamond mace cuz i can chug on pots and hit w/o disarming and stamina drain also rocks
    but ornate cuz of disarm and crush for high damage

    what do you guys think i could do to improve this character?
    my focus is on weapons by now. i really need advices about weapon combinations to use
    some bushido advices and template suggestions are welcome too
  2. You could consider dropping anatomy to 80 (the minimum to res, I *think*) and tactics to 90 and raising bush and parry to 120 and resist to 85. And Then aim to find some +skill jewels in time. Perhaps use the resilient bracer if it fits for you.

    Or bite the bullet and drop resist and then everything will be easier to fit onto the template.

    81 is the min for res, of course 91 is min for not failing.

    also I THINK 100anat/tactics helps evasion a lot more than the 9 points in Bushido, I don't have the math right now and I don't feel like doing it but if memory serves me right it would be better to leave anat and tacts at at least 100, also try to get a macing weapon that has disarm as that was one of your issues, not being able to use evasion with the talon bite, it would be easier to disarm with a mace and switch weapons for the other specials than it is to disarm with talon bite and switch weapons for evasion. While that might not sound logical you can still do everything normally with a mace that disarms while you are limited to not using evasion with talon bite. My feelings on resist are basically you are wasting the 80 skill points as at 80 it is not really protecting you from much. Eventually you will get the extra 15 points for bushido/parry taking you to 120/110 or any combination you like really. Well I lost my train of thought as it is pretty late for me, so I will leave you with what I have said so far.

    Do not drop your anat or tactics below 100 this person does not seem to know how evasion works and how 100+ grants a flat % bouns to the ability. I agree with the post above this one on most points especially on the idea you need to find a mace to swap for disarm
