What's an UO forum without template discussions? I love them!
Well, here comes one!
I would love to have a Treasure Hunter. I've been wandering around looking for sweet templates and so far the "standard" Treasure Hunter is something like this:
- Evaluate Intelligence
I think it all depends on what you exactly want to do. Pure, rp'd T-Hunter? Soloing Lvl6? Bit crate stealing for the semirare goodies?
As some of you may have noticed, i have "Kandor" (unguilded, waiting to catch Ribo to get him in) as a finished T-Hunter and I tried several templates with him (I love soulstones!). Mandantory are only 2 things:
I've added in:
- Hiding (GM)
- Stealth (GM)
- Magery (GM)
- Med (GM)
- Eval (GM)
Thats 700 points, on that account Kandor could spend 715 points (age bonus). Those will go in Med/Magery. You could wear a burglars bandana (+10 stealth/snooping/stealing) and skill jewelry to get more points and lower some skills.
With this template I can solo up to Lvl5 without problems . I can do Lvl6 alone, but have to leave the ancient wyrms alone.
Reason for the above template: The initial spawn contains 4 nastys. I cast 2 ev's right before digging up the chest, dig up and hide, then stealth away. Works like a charm if timed right. Then just keep casting ev/earth.. until critters dead. Loot and make sure there are always 2 ev's up. Rinse, repeat until chest is empty.
I have fishing stoned and will swap from time to time with carto.
I tried the barding part too, you'll definitely need 120music/Prov here. Have fun traing prov up :/ I didn't care about peace, duration to short, delay to long. Works good to, IF your skills are up to the task. Mine apparently wasn't ;-) I swapped eval and stealth for this btw. and I died countless times more with bard/t-hunter then with my current stealthy template.
Then there was the thief thingy... Didn't work for me, 'cause my dark side
wants to steal from players in felucca too. And then you just don't have the room for carto or picking.
Anyway, have fun training your guy up! If your at 99,5 carto give me a call, I have some pink scroll ready for you. (Last 0.5 are a pia to get, unless you use satyrs)
