    Im revamping my necro and trying to figure out a few skill points.

    He will have 120 swords and 80 poison, and i have 5parry and 5 archery on items (would like to put these towards the 300 skill point special move lmc bonus)

    So i have 90 skill points left. wondering if i should go with bushido or parry (he will not be using a shield)

    Basic question - Will i get hit less with 90 parry or 90 bushido? (does bushido even give a defense bonus if you have no parry?)

    I checked the uo stratics combat calculator but it appears broken in regards to bushido skill, and i dont really understand the "new" vrs "legacy" differences. (im bad at math, but probably just a small difference)

    If you don't use a shield then you needn't parry without bushido. So bushido is better for you.
    You can use it for honor and confidence. But may be there is a sense get 100 poison and 70 bushido.
