    Hello everyone,

    I havent played UO since publish 25. Just coming back and things are quite different. Years ago I liked playing an AI mage. It seems this is still viable but I am not entirely sure how it would look.

    Would this still be viable? Optimal?

    120 mage
    120 eval
    120 med
    120 resist
    120 swords
    120 tactics
    This is essentially what I would have run in 2004.

    I keep seing alot of people suggest a bushido mage with no med. I assume the template would look like this?
    120 swords
    120 bushido
    120 mage
    120 eval
    120 resist
    90 tactics
    30 med

    then get items to get med as high as possible? What would be my suit requirements for MR for this to be viable? Are there other variations? Part of me just wants a straight forward sword ai mage, but I dont want to gimp myself. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    you can lower your tactics to 60 now and still use all special moves

    Your going to want max lmc, 45+ dci and hci (if you want to hit on a tank mage), as much MR as you can, max pvp sdi, 15 hit point Inc, and then work on things like hpr and maybe a little sr.

    Also, imo you need parry to play a Bush mage too. So many nox dexxers now, you will want the best chance possible to avoid getting hit.
