    Hi

    If I have 120 archery and lets say I am using a UBWS warfork, does the archery skill translate to fencing skill?

    Thanks

    Heh... Kind of.. I've seen a Sneaky Sneaky Version of this years ago that worked as follows..

    1) 120 Mage on the Character
    2) UBWS , -20 Mage Weapon Warfork
    3) 120 Archery Skill
    4) 0 Fencing Skill
    5) 90 Tactics

    Basically.... it was a disarm archer with Bushido / parry / evade etc.. YEARS ago. The 120 Archery allows you to do specials and hit with Archery weapons like you would expect. The -20 Mage weapon on your WarFork Basically turns your Magery into a Combat skill allowing you to actually hit with the warfork. The Tricky part of it is that 120 Archery when combined with a UBWS melee weapon DOESNT actually give you a 120 combat skilll (ability to hit / Be missed) but it DOES give you the ability to toggle the specials on your warfork. So basically your using archery skill to pull off bleeds and disarms and the mage weapon property on the fork to actually hit / be missed by others.. I'm sure it could be worked into a decent template these days, but IF it still works like this I doubt many are aware of it.. I haven't checked in years ...

    To the OP, no archery and throwing do not work UBWS.
