    I am changing my warrior templat to:

    115 Fencing
    115 Tactics
    110 Healing
    110 anatomy
    100 Parry
    85 Bushido
    85 Chivalry

    My question is how high do i need these skills to optimize the benefits of bushido without weakening my character? For instance is there a significant difference between 115 fencing and 110 that would be noticable or is there a big difference between 100 parry or 90 parry for the benefit of perfection?

    If anyone has alternate template suggestions, that would be appreciated.

    I don't know much about Bushido, I might put it on my paladin char just to try it out. I think I made a Samarai character a long time ago when SE came out. It didn't really do much for me but I was still at a low level also. But if it was me, I would totally trade out Bushido for 85 Bank-Sitting. Or 85 Vendor Shopping. Lol.

    My fourth character I used to have on my old acct., his was the most screwed up template I had ever seen.... lol. Grim Kedar: Archery, Necro, Spirit Speak, Taming, Lore, Vet (he could rez pets which was nice), Magery, Tactics. I wanted to try out Necromancy plus I always wanted an archer and a tamer. I never did have a decent tamer, I still can't bring myself to do it. My gf is training up taming, so I will let her have fun with that.

    I've pretty much worked out my templates on all my characters, the first three are pretty much the same as was my other three, with a few changes and my fourth character making up for crowded templates. I wanted a high fisherman and was training Bowcraft/Fletching after Mondain's Legacy came out, but dang my templates got crowded. Crafting wise I'm goin a different route, now with Arms Lore I am forced to. Lol.

    My mage will be more of a mage, taking away GM Cooking and whatever I had in fishing. Thinking about putting Necromancy on him or Spellweaving, which I don't know much about. I don't really know anything about Mysticism yet. My smith, taking GM Lumberjacking and Bowcraft/Fletching I had on him away. Putting GM Arms Lore on him and having a bit more warrior skills than he did.

    So this is creating a very interesting template for my fourth character now.

    120 Tailoring
    100 Lumberjacking
    100 Bowcraft/Fletching
    100 Cooking
    100 Fishing?
    180 - Archery, Tactics, Chiv to recall and deal with annoying spawn

    The only problem with this is fighting sea monsters and the like is gonna suck. I never made it that far on Fishing though, so maybe I will alter it later. I'm not too big on tailoring, so might sacrifice that for more warrior skills but make it to where I can nab decent Bods.

    First to clarify Parry has nothing to do with perfection. Perfection is based off Bushido skill lvl and using honor. Read up on that on stratics skill's section.
    Parry with bushido gives you a chance to parry with a melee weapon, if using a shield while having parry and bushido will actually give really low bonuses to parry.
    Now on to your template. . . 120 fencing is almost required. At least 100 bushido. You can actually drop chiv to 71 and still get off enemy of one, can drop both tactics and anatomy to 100.
    I personally run a Sampire template and do rather well and really like it. My stats/template are

    necro-99.7 (rasing to 100)
    Hope that helps you out, any questions post up or you can pm me
