What is your favorite character template to play in UO?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by PlayBoy. Inc., May 3, 2009.

  1. Hi All,

    My question goes out to all who stumble upon this thread:

    What is your favorite template to play? Is it a tamer? a mage? a crafter? a thief (... la)?

    If you want to be very specific, you can even list out the skill combinations that you prefer to play most.

    Thanks to all or any who contribute to this as I'm truly interested to see what all skill combinations players have come up with! :)

    120 mage
    120 spellweave
    120 music
    120 disco
    80 necro
    80 SS
    80 med

    Mage and spellweave are great offensive/defensive skills for spawning and complement each other well (arcane empowerment works for mage spells also)

    music and disco for the final champ

    necro and SS are set to 80 only for the death adder (controls silver serps at coon spawns) otherwise Id run only enough for wraith (awesome mana leech when casting essence of wind) plus the lil blue booger for gold at the end

    I do need to add though, that functionality is much much much higher when running a level 3-6 focus, obviously...

    Mana regen/LMC gear is kind of a must as well, spellweave is very mana intensive.

    Im rather partial to my necroweaver mage.

    120 Mage (115 right now)
    120 Necro
    120 Spirit speak
    110 Med
    120 Eval
    120 Weaving

    Lvl 5 focus and Coon is a breeze.
    Plus, attunement and gift of renewal in pvp situations can save you. Heh.

    I was suprised to see the previous 2 post say their favorite template has spell weaving in it. I go in streaks but Most of my templates revolve around a spell weaver. Right now i am running a tamer/weaver. Taming 120,
    lore 115,
    Spell weaving 120,
    magery 100 + 20 from Crystaline Ring,
    Med 120,
    Focus 100 + 20 from Crystaline Ring.
    and with left over skills resist.
    almost unlimited Mana, Very Nice
    The High Focus (Circle) makes this template.
    A nice Greater dragon helps too.

    Spellweaving (with a decent to max focus) is extremely underrated...

    Spellweaving (with low or no focus) is highly overrated...
  6. 120 parry
    120 macing
    120 anat
    120 healing
    120 tactics
    120 chivalry

    excellent in pvm as well as pvp.

    I love my peace tamer characters.
  10. It's awsome to watch my sampire solo things no man should on his own, my nox thief causeing trouble (back in the day) or my 6x120 mage/peace/tamer run through tricky spots with impunity but my favourite to play would be my bard

    120 music
    120 peace
    120 provoke
    115 magery
    115 eval (sometimes 100 lockpicking)
    100 med (sometimes 100 cart)
    15 hide

    I use etoile/novo bleue so no skill bonuses for me :(

    As a mage bard i can watch a room full of spawn destroy themselves while i pick off stragglers
    As a bard/t-hunter I solo maps from paragon chests and have a ball (a good tip is to aggro the closest healer and make him follow to a spot nearby, but not close enough for spawn to attack, for an easy rez)

    Good times... Good times...

    How cool is it though being a smithy/tailor and making an awsome piece of gear from your first runic :)

    I have two gold winners I play most often.

    Firehorn Bard
    120 music
    120 provo
    120 peace
    120 discord
    110 sword
    110 chiv
    100 resist
    Hoping with imbueding will be able to free up enough points to put tactics on him. Spinn attack/firehorn/holy light/blaze of death area/fireball abilities.

    Disco Tamer
    120 taming
    120 lore
    120 vet
    120 discord
    120 music
    110 mage
    his stables only has frenzy and hellcats. been that way when I started him 8+ years ago

    I have to say that my Tamer/peacer/Mage is my favorite, hands down. I have the old dial-up issues (happens when you live in nowhereville) so the peace keeps me playing.

    120 Taming
    120 Vet
    120 Lore
    120 Music
    120 Peace
    110 Magery

    No skill jewels, just the etoile/novo bleue combo.
    One day I will finish the 120 on magery, but right now I just use the other points to get BODs. (0.1 tailor and 0.1 blacksmith for a BOD an hour)
  21. Wow, thanks to everyone who has posted thus far!! I've been trying to experiment with different templates on my own characters to switch it up a bit, and it's FUN! :D

    So far, I'm liking the thief/ninja template that I am still building up. I might have to rebuild one of my other chars into a necro/spell weaver to see what the hype is.

    Thanks so much again, all!! :)

    My stealth weaving necro ninja mage.

    120 mage
    100 eval
    120 spell weaving
    100 med (+10)
    100 hiding
    80 stealth
    70 ninjitsu
    30 necro (+20)

    Go anywhere, do anything super scout, from Doom/champion spawns to grim reaper/berserker demon events, a very good peerless key farmer too, esp prism. My suit has crappy resists, but I rarely die due to smokebombs, attunement, gift of renewal.

    Tricky question!

    I love my Necro Samurai Swordsman for PvM ownage
    I am very partial to my Stealth Necro Mage with massive sdi for Fel Spawns
    My Pure Bard with 120 Music/Disco/Prov is lots of fun to play

    Its hard to choose a favourite but those are my top 3 most played at the moment I guess...

    Haven't been doing much PvP recently apart from the odd scuffle on my Necro Stealther but i've been working a Stealth Ninja recently who is nearing completion so hoping that should be quite fun when he's all ready!
  24. Nox Necromage ftw :)

    120 mage
    120 eval
    120 med
    120 resist
    100 ss
    80 poison
    60 necro

    An all around good template. Fun to play.

    I also swap out the necro stuff for 120 SW/40 focus from time to time to really beat up on some spawn.
  25. Whichever one I'm currently logged onto. :thumbsup:

    This is a fun thread. Question...what does the template for this:

    look like?

    As for myself, my long-term project is a sampire (finding weapons takes some finding), but probably my favorite more-or-less finished character is a peace/disco tamer:

    110 Taming
    110 Lore
    90 Vet
    100 Magery
    120 Music
    120 Discord
    100 Peace
  27. pally archer

    120 archery
    120 tactics
    100 anat
    94 heal (so i dont fail a heal attempt)
    100 med
    110 resist
    90 chiv

    734 skill cap

    i have a few bonusses on my armaments to give me that xtra 14 pts.
    my wife liked the template so much that she duplicated it on her archer pally too; we can walk thru almost anything together cross-healing each other.
    lots of folks like bushido to max damage but i havent fully examined this option yet; havent found the need, as this temp has absolutely NO weaknesses.

    i like this 'food for thought thread'
    making ppl think is usually a good thing ...unless they are nut cases!

    luv all the cool ppl in uo
    the rest of the screwheads can blow!
    you know who you are ...hopefully.


    p.s. this template is mainly for pvm. but i have ran across as many as 5 pvp'rs at once and lived. killed 3 of em b4 they got me. even went back and got my body (while they were going thru it. they had to move a buncha crap i put there to stall looters and thieves; a habit i picked up from my pre-trammel days) and taunted them a bit b4 i 'journey'd' out. haha! funny stuff. still gives me a lil chuckle thinkin about that.
    obviously they werent very good or i woulda been toast.

    peace on you!
