Geez , can we get this reduced a bit. The spells from bone magi , skeletal mage aren't much , but if you're getting blasted by 10 of them , this is significant. I can understand being killed by Rikkitor. The fc / fcr for mobs in Pvm is also a bit high. a skeletal mage is easy. Being blasted off the viewing area by 4 or 5 of them is entirely different. It just seems very over zealous by EA/Mythic

It would be ok if the drop rates for replicas were really that high (I doubt if it's just me) but I've only gotten 1 drop from all 10 of my chars from doing them. My warrior got blasted and died. (probably 90-95% of my deaths @ the spawns) I lost a backpack with my potions / enhanced apples in it. Now I need to alchemy and buy new consumables.
Goingto stay away from there as doesn't seem worth the trouble

LOL I have to admit I am somewhat embarrassed for admitting that.
But when I saw the dead greater there as well I guess I didn't feel so bad...

Honestly, I rather like the sometimes insane spawn rates in the champ spawns. It makes the spawns challenging rather than boringly simple.

It just makes me think about the tactics I need to use for certain spawns. I.E. for Niera, I always bring my archer and a conjurer's trinket. There's never a problem with him getting swarmed in that spawn. For Semidar, I bring my tamer and a greater dragon. Since his fire and physical resists are nearly maxxed, he can stand up to a hoard of flaming gargoyles without much intervention on my part.

The only two I do with a number of templates are Baracoon and Serrado. Bara is an easy one for any template, and I choose my own based on who else I expect to see at the party. Serrado can be done just as easily with my archer as with my weaver-mage.

Anyhow, proper planning prevents getting slaughtered.

That and not bringing a melee fighter.

When I go solo to champ spawns(for SoT's), to avoid being overwhelmed and surrounded, I'll work the edges.

About champ spawns, does UOAM no longer show labels for them? I think it used to.
