Returning to Ultima Online. Would Like Help

    Hey there. I haven't really played UO since around 2003 (I only remember the date because I had a paladin that sucked and a Necromacer that also sucked). I returned to UO about 2-3 weeks ago and in that time I've had a bit of help getting started (a few people gave me some gold at New Haven and I got a LRC Suit for my mage).

    I was wondering if there are any guilds out there who are sort of dedicated to helping new players get a strong start and one of the big things I wanted to do was to make a Sampire. It sounds almost exactly like my Necromacer (though we didn't have Bushido back then) and I think that I could play that very well. The main things I need help in training up is really just Swordsmanship. I always had a hard time raising Melee fighting skills, though my guy is past the 55% point.

    I've mostly been hunting in New Haven and have recently started flogging the Mongbats in the forest, but I'm wondering if there are better ways to get that fighting skill up. I'm very willing to play the game (in fact, I would love to find a group of newbies like me to play with) and I'm willing to put the effort in to get it done... but any tips or shortcuts to get me going on to the bigger game would be appreciated.

    This is my Sampire Build:

    I'm still debating between Anatomy, Spirit Speak, and Resisting Spells for the last two, though I'm leaning heavy towards Anatomy and Resist. Stuff like this is the part that I need the most help on, really.

    You can contact me on ICQ: 685334904 or just find me in-game. My character's name is Creed and I usually hang out in New Haven. I may need to drop a few things off of my build (I don't see much point in Chivalry with so much negative karma and I picked up Fencing to start instead of swords), but I figure that will happen with time.

    Welcome back!

    First advice from me would be to get/ask for a Crystal Ball of Knowledge. In case you don't know its a nifty little item that tells you exactly if you are training with the right mobs/items.

    As for pretty much anything else UO you can find the description on www.uoguide.com. I'd recommend that site also for a lot of training tips on each of the skills.

    Chivalry on your sampire is really only needed for Sacred Journey (i.e. travelling easily) and Enemy of One (increase damage to mobs that you can't honor and have no slayer for)

    But these are really advanced topics for now ;-)

    Do you have a house? A Mailbox? I'd throw you a Crystal Ball of Knowledge...

    I'd throw in the spirit speak for the extra healing
