100 tact
100 Ana
67 heal
100 MagRes
68 Focus
90 Bush
75 Chiv

I was thinking about dropping focus, its just that I use Lightning strike every attack, and some chiv skills, afraid ill be out of mana all the time. You think droping focus wont hurt that much?

Something like this?

100 arch
100 tact
100 Ana
100 heal
100 MagRes
35 Focus
90 Bush
75 Chiv

I'm glad to help. If test shard is open, you should test it all before implying (?) it on your main chars and what not

I would raise your weapon skill to atleast 110-115. Go 110 anat/tact. Focus is such a waste of a skill in this game, that you dont need it. You can get your mana back by wearing MR pieces and having mana leech, although on archery you get less mana leech from the current nerf, which is why I would get rid of archery and use a real weapon to start with. Other than that, you got a good start.

Ok, I thought about it and I really do want to keep archery. I might switch later to swords. This is what I came up with:

110 arch
110 tact
110 ana
100 heal
100 MaRes
90 Bush
80 Chiv

Ill just get mana regen items to make up for focus. Maybe leech on bows.

What you guys think?

If I do switch to swords, should I switch a skill for parry?

Citan, you don't have to listen to everyone who plays with sharp objects. (I am thinking Bo runs with scissors. )J/k.

Keep your bow, you will like it. :)

I just never was into archery, I have been a swdsman since the day I started UO. The reason I say drop archery is cause of the severe leech nerfs they did to them. I have only noticed leech problems with the soulseeker, but none of my other weapons.

Plus they mentioned they are doing pvm, so archery wont effect my playstyle....hehe...

I was just joking Bo. I respect your choice of weapon ;). I, too, have noticed a problem with mana since the archery leech nerf.

Mana Regen > Mana Leech Its just a matter of finding the right combination of armor and you will be ok. I made my change from leech weapons when elven composite bows were nerf'd.

you gotta remember tho, they said this is their first character, meaning new acct or newer acct, prob not lots of money for high end items or arties. decent weapons are easier to find than the perfect setup of armor w/mods.

No offense taken, I am proud of my swords heritage..hehe..I am just now making my first ever macer, so it seems soo foreign to me. I tried the archery at one point, but HATED it. I started too late and missed the Great ML GODLY bow giveaway and made it after the damage nerf and quest nerf.... I just made the archer to kill the other archers that were blasting away with the WOD/AI combos and the 140 criticals. Figure if you cant beat em, join em....

The sound of that flushing of 116 archery on the stone was like music to my ears!!!!

Just Imagine a Ninjitsu-Archer, a balanced Bow, a macro throwing DP Shurikens, and a Death Strike. Now imagine throwing bolas without disarming. :)

If ur just PvM'ing, archery is a great skill. With archery, you want high stamina to shoot faster, and max tactics and anatomy for higher dmg. I would also recommend getting 120 archery, but one thing at a time, eh. You only need 100 healing, and 60 chiv just so you can do all the basic spells. Enemy of one would be castable, you'll just fizzle a lot :P for now you can try this :)

110 arch
120 tact
120 ana
100 heal
100 MaRes
90 Bush
60 Chiv

edti: max out ur dex to atleast 140 for 4 second heals. Get some MR items and lower ur intelligence. You won't need much if ur just going to pluck away at monsters
