Thoughts on Dexxer Revision (Pvp)

Discussion in 'UO Warrior' started by Barl DeAbreago, Jun 5, 2009.

  1. Hello,

    Just recently I decided that my straight chiv dexxer was outdated, or in the very least, I feel he needs something more. I am technically an rp-pvper, so i do PVM and PVP, but being what the character is... he is geared towards the latter of the two.

    So, being that the character has always been the devoted warrior type, I recently changed his template to something along these lines:

    fencing 120
    tactics 90
    parry 120
    Bush 120
    chiv 80
    resist 120
    med 70

    Essentially, he was straight chiv before with anat/healing/ and 4/6 chiv...so for this build i just swapped anat and heal for parry and bush, and then adjusted some numbers from there.

    So far I am liking it and doing well, but I dislike that all my healing aside from pots is mana based. While I have played and pvped for a long time, I've only recently started to research dps in much closer detail. So this leads me to a few questions:

    1) Would I be better off getting rid of something to put anat and healing back on the template? Both damage wise and healing wise would this be the correct thing to do? And if so, how would I do this? The only skills I could see getting away with dropping would be resist or chiv, neither of which I am crazy about losing. I could drop med a bit, but my mana already feels slower than I'd like.

    2) Does the damage and the ability to heal that i would get from anatomy and healing outweigh using the combination of divine/conc/ and LS as I do now? is the damage that much more significant or more or less the same?


    3) Are most bush dexxers not running resist? It feels like a crime to not use resist (even though I know you can item your way through without it)...but when I add the numbers up, 120'ing everything appropriately...I just don't see how you could fit it (if you are using healing, that is).

    Any answers or template suggestions you all might have for me would be appreciated.

    Thanks much.

    Basically in order to put healing and anat on you char you will almost certainly have to give up resist or bushido and pretty much med.

    Basic template would look something like
    fencing 120
    bushido 120
    parry 120
    tact 100
    anat 95
    heal 95
    chiv 60

    The problem your going to run into is mana and having to carry a trapped box all the time. If your an elf and have no intention of going human, then you could move tact/anat/healing to 90 and put the points into med. I have the trapped box macro set-up through UOAssist and mapped to one of the buttons on the side of the mouse since my thumb is always resting on it. After awhile you will get good at hitting it and probably will be accused of using a program.

    Pretty much the only 3 skills you really don't want to mess around with too much is the 120 weapons skill, 120 parry, and 90 tactics.

    Best bet would be to go on test shard and try different combinations. Maybe try changing the 120 bushido to 120 resist or even 120 med. You might just find out that the original template works the best with your armour/weapon set-up.
