Tamer/Mage or Necro/Mage ?

    Hi all.

    Gonna post this on the necro forums too.

    I'm looking for mainly PvM with some PvP in the future. I got my Mage semi done with 80+ magery. So for my mage part i got magery, medi, eval & resist.

    I started off with 50 taming. But i find taming a chore to raise. Currently taming polar bears near Deceit. At 52.x skill currently.

    The lure of necromancy seems likes its easier to raise.

    So tame, lore & vet OR necro, SS & weapon skill?

    Whats the advantage for both templates ?

    (Note i played UO many yeas ago during Lord Blackthorns revenge for like 2 months. Just came back into UOKR/Mordain's)

    Thanks.

    As I mentioned in your other posting, I am interested in making a Necro/Tamer, which is something I am not sure of as I have never done the necro skill before.

  3. tamer/mage is viable in both pvp and pvm.

    necro mage is also viable in both pvp and pvm. Generally in pvm, necro/mage excels at champ spawns. tamer/mage excels at dps

    Hi, thanks for the info.

    Is weapon skills important for a Necro/Mage ? Since I would have 1 left over skill.

    Eg:
    100 Magery
    100 Medi
    100 Resist
    100 Eval
    100 Necro
    100 SS
    100 ?? (Weapon Skill or Anatomy or Wrestling)?

    Thanks.

    Go 120 with the last 100 points and use a staff of the maji. 0 mage weapon means at 120 magery you are 120 macing. Never forget the "free" skills!
