    I wanted to know about certain professions likes Smiths and Tamers. First off, do smiths generally have fighting capability or do they just make weapons? The same question applies for tamers. Next pls explain what 7 skills smiths and tamers should focus on to be effective at what they do. Last I just want to know a little about tamers in general. What do they do and what advantages do they posses? Thank you.

    I will point you in the direction of the smith forum and tamers forum as there are faqs at both sub-forums that will answer most of your questions. And any other specific questions about thoses professions would be easier answered there.

    I am not trying to say do not post here, but you are asking questions that are better handled in the other forums.

    It kind of depends on how serious you are about crafting. If you just want a smith to make armor and weps you will need smithing and arms lore. So you will have several other skills points available.

    However, I think you are more likely to find that you will want many different crafting abilities which require MANY skills and leave no room for warrior skills. I have two chars I need for crafting and I still have several soul stones to bounce skills back and forth to handle making all the things I need to make.

    What shard are you on?

    I'm of a mind with Warsong on this ...

    Smith Forum

    Tamer Forum

    Like he said also, we don't wish to discourage you from asking here, but the profession forums have the skilled folks who can give you more exact answer on the specifics.

    That stated, my smith is a multifunction bloke with lumberjacking, mining, tinkering and carpentry as well. If he is out with his pack animals, he and they can do a troll okay, but tougher foe, he runs from ... FAST! his weapon skills stink.

    I have a smith/miner with fencing and tactics. He heals with potions .

    He's made to dig up ore eles and kill them. [​IMG]

    He can handle almost all easely. Just the Bronze one and Valorite one are a challenge.

    Fighting Smith.

    You can make all characters with or without fighting skills. its all a matter of choice.And in UO you have that choice! [​IMG]
