Question about PvP Bok Bush Parry Mage

Discussion in 'UO Spellcaster' started by Gal, Feb 27, 2010.

    I was trying to figure out how to make that template
    I know I could spend 780 skill Points (with items: 10 medit spell woven britches, 20 swords captains john's hat, 30 skill from bracelet and ring), I was thinking of:
    120 Magery
    120 Eval Int
    120 Bushido
    120 Parry
    120 Swords
    90 Meditation
    90 Tactics

    What do you think? or could I do with less Bush or Parry or both in order to get more medit?
    and did any of you come out with a better template or more skill points pool then 780 with diffrent items?

    I think you'll be trying to do too much with the template. Perhaps you could make it work but I see you sacrificing a lot of mods for skill bonus and it will do more harm than good.

    I would either do Sword/Tact/Bush or do Bush/Parry, use a mage weapon, and put 50 weapon skill on for evasion bonus.

    Dunno how you'd fit it, but seems worth mentioning: if you put Anatomy on there you get the Anat/Eval Defensive wrestling for when you get disarmed.

    Oh and, the crazy templates are always the most fun to play :p

    I wouldn't bother to much with the parry. To get full benefit of parry and evasion you need 80 dex and at least 120 bush, GM tacts and anat to get a 50% evade. Without that you are looking at 40% evade with just a max of 6 seconds duration at 20 second intervals. Seems to much for to little.

    At 120 bush has a 90% chance to nervstrike. Damage from NS expect 25 direct damage +( base damage + hit spell) - armor resists - rnd 0-10 hp (per pub 46).

    Duration of the nerve strike doesn't seem like it used to be, 3 seconds maybe.

    As far as stacking damage there might be better routes. Nerve strike on a tanked out bush warrior with di,tacts and anat can do some decent damage.

    120 Magery
    120 Eval
    120 Med
    120 Resist
    100 Alchemy
    140 spare
