When I used to play UO, my favorite character, by far, was my thief. I started in '99 and quit just before all the vampire/ninja/samurai stuff happened. I was considering giving the game another go. But I wanted to hear from you guys what the game is like these days. Can a thief still run up to disarm people and run off w/ the best weaps in the game? Or has that been nerfed? Is the thief still a powerful (or viable) character? Also... what does PvP look like now? I remember that, before UO:R, it was pretty awesome stuff. And it got a little lame afterwards. Are meele characters still totally dominant? And does the PvP still require a lot of skill? Or has it become item-based (Like EQ and WoW)? Thanks!
