Recently i started playing Ultima. So when i entered Luna i saw, that most people hero - are mages. Differend kinds, but all are wearing spellbooks\staffs in hands. When i asked one mage why there are no warriors, he said that mages much better, and only "warrior" type, that can PvP with mages its paladin.
I want ask you to post here good warrior (dont know whats the best weapon for pvp?) guide. Yeah i know that all we need magery, but i dont want raise it on 100.

There is no best template. There are templates that are better for some situations than others. There is also the matter of what do you want to do in Ultima. Do you want to fight other players? Do you want to go alone most of the time? Do you like fighting monsters in a group?

Mages are very versatile, they can do very well in many situations, but I would not say theyre the most powerful.

Also, many people sitting in Luna spend almost all their time... sitting in Luna.

100 anat - +20 on ring/braclet
120 tactics

Me ears are burning.

MAKE IT STOP!

Theo already mentioned almost-my-template. I just have chivalry instead of focus.

And when I fight in a group, I sub in bushido for macing.

I also have resist, meditation on soul stones, always waiting to be swapped out, depending on the situation I plan on getting into.

As for why macing, I chose it because I got the 120 macing scroll for 200,000 gold. I use a use best weapon war fork as my favorite melee toy. But the only thing you really need from a melee weapon in that template are disarm and bleed, coincidently both available on said war fork. After you use those two, you're back to the yumi for double shot or composite bow for armor ignore/moving shot.

There is one huge disadvantage, which is part of why I have resist available on a soul stone. A single mage with mana vampire will ruin your day. Once you see the magic mana vamp words, the best advice I can give is to run if you can't interrupt the casting.

But there are a lot of effective melee templates, some more effective than others. The biggest disadvantage to melee fighting is that you're dependant on the ability to stay close to your opponent. The biggest advantage is its hard for other melee warriors or archers to damage you if you're smart enough to have parry.

And the remove curse spell from chivalry can't be underestimated. Nor can the speed of the close wounds spell.

Parry is only effective if you use a sheild, also if you have bushido it guves a greater chance to use it's spells : D i agree with the melee advantage, it doesn't work really well against a mage, unless you use magic resist which also puts you down one more skill so its kind of hard to choose a very effective template these days

The sampire template works well, i wouldn't use it personally because i dont pvp it can also be used in PVM but hey i just like my template : D
don't really use my template for pvp i kind of died in it, to many speedhackers. :'(

Hmm. What you can say about this:
anatomy - 100 (20 from bracer\ring)
focus - 60
healing - 100 (20 from bracer\ring)
parry - 100
resistspells - 120
swordmanship -120
tactics - 120

Dot think that its best, but in this case i have spell resist to curses. And doublestrike helps put enemy mage down quickly. Armor ignore will be good aganist meele enemies.
I suppose it looking more like tank. What do you think?

healing you don't need more then 90 and the use of enhanced bandages will push that up to gm, and 90 it won't fail

Something you could try is a lumberjack. Currently it isn't the best template for PvP, but I believe it is my most fun character to play PvM with. Probably in terms of total damage output it isn't that great, but it is a lot of fun getting a double hit in with the doom arti axe. I also like having a resource gathering skill that augments your combat abilities, as that is kind of cool.

With that being said, it may be becoming better in practical terms after the publish, as there is a 5% chance on hit of doubling your LJ bonus. Does anyone know if that is going to be capped with DI, or can you break the cap with it?

I am also looking for a dexer/warrior template...

I played in the 90's (spanned the addition of trammel) and haven't been back since, and after being sick to death of WoW I thought I might give this another try.

I take it the mace/archer uses archery for runners?

What sort of mace weapon do you prefer? Speedy weaps for skill gain (if memory serves it looked like a golf club, maybe war axe?) then move to a heavier 2-h weapon (staff or sledge hammer style)?
