Hello all. i'm very new to UO. There is so much information floating around on this game that i'm overwhelmed. Can anyone point me to a link where I can find detailed guides to different class builds.

I don't get to play alot and really want to get some guidance on how to develop a character that suits my playstyle. I spent 2 years playing a coercer in EQ2 so I really want to keep it to a non-complicated solo friendly class.

Thank you.

It's a class that focuses on crowd control. He is unique for his ability to charm creatures and control them.

Hmm perhaps a tamer would be good for you. You can take your pet out and hunt together. I myself prefer a bushido archer. The great thing is since you have 6 slots you can experiment with a lot of different styles. I would look at some templates that are here http://www.uoforums....splay.php?f=681 and tomorrow morning the boards will be brewing with members that can help :)

I think I would want to stay away from a tamer. Tired of the whole pet thing, but the bushido archer sounds really interesting I will look for some info on them. Thanks for all your help.

Thank you very much.

I honestly have not decided what shard to play on yet. I'm looking for a shard that has a decent population yet not so populated that the good hunting areas are always taken.

Lake Austin is low populated and has a lot of housing spots open. There are always people at the Luna Bank :)

Hm. Coercer sounds like a Spell Weaver. One of the more useful skills is Dryad Allure. I've seen PKs use Orc Brutes to kill other players at times... but I'm pretty sure it only works on humanoid monsters.

So, make a mage/spellweaver if you want.

Actually im looking to stay away from that type of character. I don't want anything to do with pets or charming. I'm leaning toward a Busido Archer or possibly a paladin build right now.

That's how I like to play Phaseout. I prefer warrior types to magic & hunters.

Any suggestions on a good warrior type solo build?

My Warrior had
Swords
Anat
Tatics
Heal
Parry
Bushido
Chiv

I wasn't really scrolled out and there was talk about dropping my Tatics for Magic Resistance if I wanted to PVP so I would stay alive longer. Since that template doesn't have focus, I would need high Mana Regen armor. My Chiv was only like 50 and the rest of the points were in Focus.

If you want to play an archer you can get:

Archery
Tactics
Anatomy
Healing
Chivcalry
Bushido
Focus

It's great for pvm as you can throw out maximum damage pretty easy, and if you ever want to pvp you can just drop chiv, bushido or focus for magic resist and still be a dangerous little tease..

THAT'S why all my chars have been ********!!! It's because I knew deep down I hated RPers!!!
