Ninja any use in PvM?

    I made a pretty regular Ninja:


    I made it mainly for PvP, but was wondering, are Ninjas any use in PvM?

    I gotta say, atleast my experiences about PvM it's not even comperable to Bushido or chivarly dexers.

    Is there any specials/spells that would be real use in PvM?

    Almost the only useful ninja spell is weapon focus, cause it increase hit properties of weapon to actually hit. Say u have 50 HLD 50 HML 50 HSL on your sword. Then with 120 ninja and use of weapon focus u will apply HLD HML HSL 100% of time, without miss.
    The other good thing is mirror image - it will rescue you from melee attacks, like 1-time-parrying.

    You could always retool a bit and add chiv for the buffs.

    well you always have shadow jump as well, mirror images great help, dog form awesome HP regen while hiding/stealth (or any other time)(with mirror images and dog form i can tank most things), wolf form HCI increase rox...DS sux, but haven't tried other than archery which was nerfed so don't know with a melee weapon but i've been hit w/it in pvp and does some good damage...umm what else..i'll get back to ya on it, lunch ovr

    sure, with a gimp template!
    I ran a ninja/alchy for a while. Fencing, med. I could kill all but the most high end creatures. Mirror image, dog form or bake for hci depending, and throw gr conflag at them while toe to toe, and gr ex while running stealthing.
    If you are set on running a ninja, you can make decent loot with this to keep you in darts and shuriken. The alchy also comes in handy for making your poisons, and smoke bombs. I was using a very nice leafblade with this, and human. The feint helped, and Ive since learned at human you can cast attunement as well. With the higher end stuff I used parasitic- even if they cure it, you normally get at least 1 good heal off of it.
    With alchy and an ecru ring, your potions do great damage and great heals.
  6. Bushido is hands down a much better choice of a secondary skill in PvM than Ninjitsu. If you plan on using both, have one on a soulstone so you can swap them out depending on what you plan on fighting.
