I don't have it, I do fine against mages...


Yes, but without it, certain tactics can be used against you.

I don't play a mage, I like the game to be a challenge. ;)

If you dont play mages, how do you know the game(rp) wont be challenging?

Magic resist has its perks, but the principle one is an immunity to paralyse in large battles. I guess theoretically you can get around that anyway but it seems the main concern. From the perspective of 1v1 it doesn't matter so much, on a warrior atleast, as bandages and potions operate independently of paralyse.

It would matter a bit more perhaps if necromancy was more common, as a number of necromantic spells are much more potent on people without resist, but I don't think the number of Necromancers you are likely to meet gets into double figures. Then again you have the fact that Necromancy is alot less potent when you can remove curses at will and effectively for free.

As it is I still think a necro-mage probably has the best shot against this Davion, but building one from scratch to test this idea seems a somewhat time consuming process.

I could also try the necro mage reason i don't rate them as a template is because I like my healing and alchemy on a mage temp *Shurgs*

I would however like to try this challenge out there is but one problem I'm green to Hanse hence forth can't use my normal tactics against him *Grins* and Hanse knows which tactic I am talking about also

Update: This challenge is still open to any takers, and Alchemy mages are (of course) permitted. Record still stands at over fourty attempts, zero winners and a fistful of newbies with a helping hand starting out in UO as a result. Also, in response to Amber's concerns it should be noted that for members of the Vesper Alliance, we do have a testing guild which can be warred and un-warred to facilitate the challenge should AoE mechanics be part of your template.

As always can simply ICQ me at 325-452-832 in order to challenge.
