The DI bonus from LJ isnt that significant that you need to spend it on a char, I would put those points into chiv and heal/resist. You could get the same bonus in DI from that DI talisman. I would suggest putting the LJ on a crafter with carp and fletching and you would probably get more use out of it.
Chiv is too important to not have it on a swordsman.

spells are hardly a limited resource...
any mage worth his own has good lmc, and mana regen.
I know my mage (only like 80 medi if that even) with 15+ mana regen NEVER runs out of mana....
never ever
maybee fielding/eving constantly...but not running around expl fsing people...mana will never drop below half.


-also, my dexer's mana is more limited than my mages. My dexer has no bush, no healing/anat for healing on the run. He must rely on chiv, which means if I do too many specials and have no mana left, I cannot heal.
Most dexers unless they have insane mana regen will run out of mana long before a mage.

This is another thing that is broken with UO. 20 minute offensive dumps should not be part of the game and its part of the reason why dueling means shit any more.

Timing and mana conservation were what mage dueling displayed. Now any newbie can dump magic arrow and weaken for 20 minutes.

Back to the subject...even with 15 MR on a suit with max LMC at some point you will run out of mana if you continually dump it. a dexer will NEVER run out of swings.

-also, my dexer's mana is more limited than my mages.

really? Then all the dexers I have seen with 12 MR, 40LMC and 40+ hit mana leech weapons dont exist right ?

My dexer has no bush, no healing/anat for healing on the run. He must rely on chiv, which means if I do too many specials and have no mana left, I cannot heal.
Most dexers unless they have insane mana regen will run out of mana long before a mage.


every template has a weakpoint. Yours is basing all of your offense and healing around mana. Waitaminute ? that sounds like EVERY mages drawback....except that while you are curing/healing with chiv, you are still swinging your weapon.

game, set and match.

true...but my weap does maybee 6 damage hehe
my damage output is based off having mana for specials and/or deathstrikes.
If I use it all healing sure i can still be swinging my weap but not really gonna hurt anyone.
I am not complaining in the slightest here...and truth be told I usually have PLENTY of mana on my dexer...just saying that they (well one like mine w/o healing.bush) are just as mana intensive as a mage and most dexies have far from as much mana as most mages have.
my dexie for example has 89 mana I think, and uses mana to heal
My mage has 150+ mana...
BIG difference

Dude in my opinion your temp is the !!!!! i mean if i could get my char up like that i have a lot of fencing no - sc DAMN good weps i could use same with swords macing and archery you have a nice temp and where your account is a veterans account you should have another 10-30 skillpoins to play with i would bring your healing up to 110 tacts to 110 and fencing to 110 Depending on your veiw but no dont listen to them they just want another person ti pick off with ease! Your temp is the !!!! Especially if you manage to get your hands on a all 70s leather lmc40 suit with a lil bit of LRC and HCI FC/FCR!!! Dude DONT LISTEN TO THEM!

i hate parry... i hate having a shield. i have since day one in 2001 when i played lol. Will i still be ok with 110 bushido against parry warriors or mages? i really like that template that u suggested thinking this:

110 tact
100 anat
90 heal
120 fence
110 bushido
70 chiv
110 resist

= 720 skill pts

with this setup, can i still use a long spear and be effective and do damage? thanks


No offense man, but the way people pvp in factions on atlantic, you will not survive with this template. Almost 90% of the guys in factions on ATL are mages or ninjitsu/hiding archers, and they travel together. You will get bombarded and ganked to no end. I do not suggest having a high dmg, melee based char if you plan on doing factions. Without parry, you won't be able to evade anything with bushido, so there's really no point of having bushido without parry. And btw, you can parry without having to have a shield on now. So basically, if you run with this template, you'll get dismounted, disarmed, then disembowelled.

ok, well old post. but i modified my char alot... :( not for what i like but hopefully what works. heres what i have now:

120 Tactics
115 Macring
110 Resist
110 Bushido
110 Parry
100 Chiv

w/e is left is in focus. I plan on going 120 macring and someday 120 resist. Can't afford scrolls at this time. But char is made for single hits (diamond mace) with evade and decent resist. let me now on the new setup! Oh no more factions.

i dunno, i got so used to 4/6 chiv that i can heal rather fast with it. and with 85 dex heal is of no use for me. I just found that out about evade. i am thinking about carrying a narled staff around. one with fast cast, di, and ssi. Problem is i am only 3/6 then. the shield made me 4/6. i could use that gay helm of swiftness but i like my helm of insight :) 100 mana on a dexxer is nice.

That is what I am using on my 4/6 dexxer, the insight 130str, 90dex(may go down for more hp) 108 mana. What I did was finally break down and use the orny to get it tho...I just cant find a good cache of weapons with fc1 and good mods that i need, so actually instead of 4/6, I ended up with 4/5 which I have noticed the difference is almost un-noticable. I think the 4fc is what really matters..

yah the orny is a very expensive piece of jewelry. I was lucky enough to obtain one from my buddy who quit and just gave me his stuff...I didnt use it for the longest time because I wasnt sure if he was going to sell his stuff or not, but eventually he said go ahead and take the stuff, I dont care. So I ended up using quite a few things in there. It has helped alot of my suits tremendously.
