Hi there, as per title of thread - Im new to this and not sure I get it! Actually still quite new to UO really, so am learning much every day So onto my questions/queries! Firstly, is the FAQ still correct and up to date? (just asking cos its a few years old ) Which stats are important to a Bard? Dexterity for faster playing? I notice that there's quite a long (well seems long to me while I am running away from things waiting to try and peace them again! ) gap between skill uses, does that get better with higher skill, or higher stats? From all the reading I've been doing, it seems a bard can't actually kill a beastie just with barding skills, so I'm going to have mage as well as bard, is that a good choice? Also, fire horns, it says they use 4 sulphurous ash, will a 100% lrc suite still need the sulphurous ash? I plan on doing 100 each of the bard skills, and 100 mage and EI - I'm not likely to be able to afford scrolls for more than 110 on anything - and from what I read, seems if I have 110 music and 100 on the other bard skills, then that is equivalent to 110 on the others anyway? I'll probably have more questions as I go - but I think that's it for now! I've just started the character yesterday Thanks a real lot to anyone answers!
