Hello there good people! After a few days on trial account I tested a few things that I thought might be interesting and now it's time to ask about some stuff. Prepare for a wall of text. But before I start Id like to say that I have played UO long long long time ago for a short period of time so basicly Im familiar with interface and basic stuff so Im not completly new. Anyway... I have tested those 5 characters: 1. Paladin So as my first character on trial I made a paladin, basicly a warrior with Chiv, nothing fancy. So after a bit of training in New Haven I went to Despise, overall its a nice toon for starters however extremly extremly boring + having to constantly bandage myself (manualy) didnt really helped in terms of "having fun". Oh and dungeons are dark, found it kinda annoying having to drink nightsight potions but thats just me So is there a hope to enjoy this kind of toon in future? Is it more fun later on? Any chance to make bandaging myself less annoying? (without UOA as its not free right?) 2. Archer So I used same toon and trained archery to see if Im gonna like it. Less bandaging as I used that healing spell from Chiv so I enjoyed it much more. But my hit chance seems to be very very low, was missing like 90%. Is that beacouse my DEX is low (around 35)? 3. Mage Not much to say here. I realised quickly that Im gonna sped more time training Magery than "having fun" so I abandoned this idea. Not having any gold didnt really helped here as reagents costs a bit. 4. Bard/tamer Always wanted to have one, seems very powerful and fun to play but... training takes time, especialy for someone whos not really that familiar with world, where to tame etc. Which again means Ill spend more time on training than "having fun"/making gold. But maybe Im wrong, maybe its not that boring and maybe there are some opportunities to make gold in same time (maybe selling mounts somewhere, like horses, llamas, I dont know ) I have also concerns about "having fun" aspect of bard/tamer. It seems that it requires lots of micromanaging, peacemaking, disco, bandaging pet, sending pet to kill stuff etc. Anyone could explain how to handle that easly? 5. Crafter Yes, crafter. Well you might think where is "having fun" aspect in endless mining/lumberjacking and making same things over and over. Well... making gold = having fun as it will allow me to buy house, deco it etc. But... I found out that training blacksmith on daggers/maces or training tinkering on scissors and selling it to vendor NPC dont really make that much gold. Does it change later on? Are those more advanced items selling for more? Also what are my chances to actualy exist in current world as a newbie crafter? I mean I need a house in decent spot, my own vendor etc. Can I earn enough while training skills? Can a newbie crafter make something thats actualy usefull for players? Bonus: Thief I had one once, it was fun and I might to try it again but is it still lucrative? Is it limited somehow these days? Ive readed somewhere that I can only steal from players in "PvP areas" like Fel, true or false? What about insurance and how it affects thieves? Whats PvM or PvP thief? I guess PvM means stealing from mobs, crates etc. and PvP from players? What Im looking for... So Im looking for a character that will allow me to have fun, meet some nice people, make decent gold... any ideas? Bear in mind that all those shiny templates Ive seen are a "no go" simply beacouse I dont have gold for scrolls, suits etc so Id prefer something hmm.. cheap. Client Classic or Enhanced? I know there is no easy answer but are there any specific benefits for playing on Enhaced client for characters I listed? Enhanced client have kinda better macro system right? So it should make bandaging easier as from what I readed I can pull bandages to action bar and assing an "action" to use them on myself on click (if that makes sense ) Facets I thinks thats how its called right? Whats the diffrence between lets say Trammel and Felucca? Its basicly same map but one is for carebears and one for PvPers? Also from what I know I could get for example more ore from mining right? Does that also Means more loot/gold from mobs? Useful software I know about UOA and Carthographer. Does they also work with Enhanced client? IS there anything simmilar to UOA but for free? Thanks for reading, Im sure it wasn an easy lecture as my "London" skill (english lol) is still not high enough.
