Do they still work? I loved my jacker pre aos.... This is what I was thinking post aos:

=======================
110 STR, 110 DEX, 35 INT

80 anatomy
120 swords
90 bushido
100 lumber
55 chivalry
100 resist (or parry?)
90 tactics
80 healing (or parry?)
(715 cap)
================

This would be for the Siege Perilous server.
Figure I'll have some nice axe with SSI and a spell plus I'll use DCI/HCI jewls and LMC armor. what your thoughts?

No matter what I am looking for a Bushido/Chiv Jacker combo I think.

Probably not worth it. They nerfed lumberjackers some time ago, there was just a discussion on this forum within the last week. The DI for 100 jacking is only something like 20%, hardly worth the effort. FWIW. I'm sure others that play/played that template will chime in.

Get a sick ornate axe, disarm and crushing (mage = dead). Consencrate weapon is your damage here. Lumberjacks do the most damage (of all dexers) in the game with an ornate axe. It is worth it.

I wouldnt go parry because most axes are two handed. I think they all are. So you could go bushido but in my opinion it is a bit of a waist with this template.

swords
tact
anat
lumber
heal
chiv
resist

I have heard 55. I bring mine up to 75 for an easier remove curse. But I have no scientific backing on that one.

Bushido is nice but with an axer using an ornate. You devine/consencrate, Disarm then Crushing or just Crushing if they have no dci and you hit them everytime. Lightning stike in PvP in that situation where you only get a few hits on a person is a bit pointless. Your consencrated Crushing will do about 40 damage - 70+ damage based on resists. Lightningstike will do maybe 20. Granted the mana is lower to use lightningstrike and you have a chance at a crit. I would go with the template listed above, if you feel you need bushido., throw it in there. I however dont recommend bushido/parry on an axer.

The template may work on Siege, but it definitely does not work well on other production shards. Siege is tough cause everyone and their mother is a tamer, and that template will be tough against one.

Necro dexxers are still the best imo as of right now, for dexxers atleast. Necro mages are the best over all template, outside of a pvp tamer.

You could DP someone? Fighting a mage? use a cleaver, bleed, DP, then swap to your ornate and crushing blow them? If you dont like poison just go med. Hitting so hard you dont NEED it, but it is nice to chain poison people then switch and hit for a big one.

if I get dped I just pot or evade, if mage evade, and bleed him and if it is a necro just evade if need apple and then bleed him unless in lich or wraith form then they die in few hits too

But poison is not that valued anymore unless you play on a shard with people that dont use pots but most good as in really good players use and have pots

If you dont use pots you will die far more faster/often on any server while pvping.

so your bleeding and DPed and you are using confidence? lol

DP might be curable with pots, but charges on a weapon will always out last pots. Go ahead and try to pot through my DP-4/6 chiv-dexer. Its funny when your 20 cure pots are gone =/ and i still have 30 charges that i can apply very easily at any point. I would assume you would then recall or run away?

Poison is very viable even with pots, it costs nothing to use and not everyone has 20+ cure pots on them at all times. If you do, great. That = 2x - 3x dp pots the poisoner needs to carry to negate that. Most dexer fights last awhile and that is that.

A mage dropping a shield or book in order to cure a pot is exactly why I would have DP on a dexer. Go ahead and greater cure so i can hit you with a strong attack, just to poison you again right after.

On that note, if you have exec axe with bleed and mortal, this can take the place of poisoning so you can have med. I went this route on my lumberjack so that I can have med for chiv + specials constantly.
