I have a Fisherman I've used for about 7 years now. On his template I included Resisting Spells to help against those Deep Sea Baddies. Recently I'm wondering if the 100 skill points might be put to better use than on Resisting Spells. Could you explain to me the benefits of having GM Resisting Spells? My armor's elemental resists are all maxed. Thanks! 8)

it helps minimise stat loss from curses and debuffs. it reduces the duration on para spells. and helps totally resist the effects of the poison spell (i beleive it reduces it one step if its successfully resisted) thats pretty much all I can think of it doing. weather its a waste is debatable i know alot of pvmers don't bother.

with me personally i have always thought resist is a waste of skill... it is only useful for the resists the poison spell completely... but for curses... there are apples and if you have chiv then there is remove curse...

back in the day resist was a must have skill...

I have 120 resist on my Olde School mage and even though I use protection (which lowers reset by 30) I am rarely paralyzed and resist poison 50% of the time. When I play with my tamer (0 resist) I get para'ed every time and poisoned every time. Like every skill in UO, it is a trade off, that depends on what you fight the most, vs. what other skills you have. The only way to know for sure is to store resist, and see how things go for you. Lots of work but, what part of UO isn't, besides Dying?

I'd say it depends on your template. If you don't really need the skill points, resisting spells never hurts.

I love having resist!
But then, I love running around naked too...
(which means the 40 damage resist comes in nicely)

Depends on the fishermans template mate, shoot down what else he is stacked with.
I personally would use it on a treasurehunter/fisherman.
