[Treasure Hunting] Template Help -

Discussion in 'UO Fishing and Treasure Hunting' started by Zannette, Jul 26, 2011.

    I finally settled on Mystic / Mage Template for my T-Hunter

    Cartography: 100
    Lockpicking: 100
    Mining: 100
    Magery: 100
    Evaluate Int. 90 + 10 from Scrapper's Compendium
    Mysticism: 120
    Focus: 120

    As my account is just 3 years old, this setup still leaves me with 15 skill points short. I can drop Mining down to 95 and use +5 gloves.
    I have two questions:
    Is it possible to pull chest with Jacob's pickaxe which i can imbue with spell channeling hopefully so that i can precast recall?
    If that isn't an option, can I get away with 110 Mysticism for Lvl 6 maps or is 120/120 a must for Ancient Wyrm

    I know that I can imbue +15 skill on my jewelry but i would rather keep 140 weight for something else.
    First option would be preferable since I could dig up a chest, recall and than equip different weapon and gloves before returning with Rising Colossus to clear the spawn.

    Thank you for your help!!

    Drop mining further - I have mining at 66 skill, add +5 gloves and +10 Jacob's pickaxe and you have 81 - 4 tiles is enough to find your chest. The only trouble I have finding chest is when I don't look at the map close enough. Most of the time I am standing right on top of it
    Also - you can precast during the dig and the pickaxe will leave your hand but you keep digging

    Well that is what i shell do.

    Do you think i should raise Magery past 100 or should i just rise eval for some extra damage?

    Thank you,
  4. personally, i do not use eval and just rely on mysticism for all my damage. spell plague/nether bolt/eagle strike spam is efficient enough. it keeps things limited, but opens up a lot more space for skills.
