What are these 8x8 areas people keep mentioning on forums for? Also,I am going to use my advancement token thing soon and I am wondering what people think of going tamer/archer/magery (just what comes with the advanced tamer character for the magery).

I want a character that can do enough magery to mark runes, heal, portal around etc, primarily I want a strong solo character that can take stuff down quickly for making money being I will be starting with nothing. I thought tamer/some fighting thing would be good.

well it use to be done in the ocean but 8x8 was "inadverently" disposed of when they fixed something else in game go figure.. it was a nice way to top off a few skills you never really had time to do by regular playing

If I were you, I would use the adv. char token on a tamer, without the archery. That is the hardest skillset to raise and train. You will end up getting bored with UO before you even have a chance to go have fun. At the same time, I would make an archer from scratch without the token. For your tamer, I suggest using Lore, Tame, Vet, Eval, Med, Mage. That should be good enough to stand on your own. With this skillset, you can be a standalone mage, as well as a tamer/mage. For the archer, use something like this, Archery, Chiv, Bushido, Anat, Heal, Tactics, Resist.

I would not suggest combining the 2 templates together, for now atleast. Start out with either a mage/tamer, or an archer, but not together. You will end up being very weak in either department, whether it be low taming so you can be a good archer, or reverse.

So aside from the pet I would just rely on magery as my only attack? That does seem to make the most sense I just thought I could throw in some kind of melee weapon too but if the points wont spread that far then I wont do that. So at creation what should I max before using the token for the tamer/mage?

Here is your problem if you throw in melee. To be effective with a weapon, you will need weapon skill, and tactics, and anatomy. People say you can get away without anatomy, but go on test, and see the difference with and without it. With a weapon skill alone, its pointless, you will just poke the monster for 15-20 a pop, and miss ALOT.

As a tamer, you have 2 forms of attack. Your mage skills and animal skills. I have made MILLIONS with my tamer. You can do anything and everything, and dont have to really worry about dying or getting hit. To mix the 2, you can throw your mare/beetle, mare/WW, hiryu, or whatever combo you like, and you can mage attack something, like ebolts or FS, explo, whatever.. you get it..

With the token, you will get everything a mage/tamer needs except either med or eval. I cant remember exactly. So before you make the char, just put 50 of that skill on it, then use the token, and boom, you have a combat ready character.

The ONLY way I would suggest a melee/tamer would be this..
110 lore
100 tame
110 vet
110 weap skill
100 anat
110 tact
70 Chivalry
and that is with 710 vet skill points available. You really dont want to take a pet out without atleast 110 lore and vet when fighting some high end stuff. The higher lore so he wont go loose, and the vet, so you can keep him alive.

But believe me, with a mage/tamer you will do alot more damage cause your animal damage output and mage output is very high.

Actually hate to jump in after he has already been convinced to stick with a Mage Tamer(which btw is the only template I have for a Tamer).

A friend of mine has this template and I have seen him take down A LOT of high end critters.

Taming(110)
Lore(110)
Vet(110)
Archery(110)
Tactics(GM)
Chivalry(80)
Anatomy(GM)

He has 720 Avaliable skill points though.
So you could go same except GM Vet or GM Taming(since taming past GM will take a few years anyways LOL, or use jewlery).

He has a nice Mana Leech Bow and Usually never takes any damage because his Cu Sidhe takes the hits and heals itself.
There are no stupid questions......only stupid people!
