chiv mages went the way of the dodo, but ninja mages rock. I would, however, go with this template instead of what you have there.

120 ninja
120 resist
120 mage
120 eval
120 wrestling
100 inscription
20 focus or med

you can deathstrike with your fists.

Merc the 20 Med???? Comon...... Thats 2 MR. Me thinks I can find a suit in my junk bin that could do better than that.

Seriously tho, ain't PAS a trammie guild!!!!!

J/k

I'd go for a Bushido mage, I really would in fact my next character i'm goin to make is:
120 bush
120 resist
120 mage
120 eval
120 wrestling
120 parry

Hell if a dexxer can kill me then I'd eat my hat..........but then i'd have to buy a new kasa, DOH!!!

Unlike Nujitsu, I recon a very important skill right now is the evade. It won't work overly well without tactics or anat but its worth having. Its totally up to you though. However I would consider making it red and going into PAE. PAS don't have a strong enough presance in Fel. If you aren't overly attatched to the guild I'd actually join a completely diff guild, possibly COP or BC.

I'm not knocking PAS, but they have very little presance in fel. They are the strongest tram guild thou.

Problem w/ bushido mage is you need GM ant, GM tactics and 80 min dex to use evade skill effectively since the new publish. They made bushido basically almost a pure warrior skill which is what it was meant to be.

Well considering there is a hard 18mr cap, you can get the 18 pretty easily. So the 20 leftover skill is best used in med. I would say, instead of the wrestling though, I would use a staff, and free up points that way... I have a scribe/mage and right now the leftover skill slot is used on spellweaving. I love using that one spell where it jacks up everyone's fc and ssi at chokepoints.... But it works effectively and there are other nice spells there. That one healing one, the self rezzing one, the sdi bonus one. I dont know the names, cause they sound stupid as hell, so I just remember their effects.

so try something like this
mage
med
eval
scribe
resist
nox/ninjitsu/spellweaving

I have been playing this char quite a bit. Well, when I do play, as I am on a short UO sabatical right now. I log in here and there, but not as often as normal. I plan on picking back up after the holidays, after a much needed break.

Alot of PAS do choose to live and hang in Tram, I'm not one of those. If you should feel the need to test that, please find me at the fel Brit gate, on Vlad Tepes. I'm sure we can resolve this stigma there. :grin:

Instead of wrestling, what about using those swords of fortune or whatever they are called? It's a mage weapon.

Yep, you can use those swords, or fork out a bit more and get the staff of the magi. I personally like the staff, cause it has more DI and swings faster. Plus it looks super cool....

That's a decent template idea. Does scribe still have have a damage increase? I'd imagine the damage output would be pretty good with that template, I'm not sure what Ninja would do for it, other than make you be able to run away. You can't deathstrike without a meelee skill, right?

you can deathstrike with a mage weapon. Yes scribe does have a SDI bonus as well. a guildie of mine has 120 eval/100scribe and does pretty nice damage along with his full sdi cap on his suit. Plus I believe, and someone please correct me if I am wrong, but I was told a while ago, that scribe helps you not get disrupted as much or something along those lines.

Ahhh that's right, that would be pretty effective. In theory you could run up in animal form, hit em with DS and FS and Explosion.

scribe helps lessen the resist penalty you receive when you cast protection, so that's what people mean when you don't get disrupted.

If you were to make a bushido mage, you don't use wrestling. You want swords so you can use a gimp SC bokuto for nervstriking. Plus bushido mages don't work well cause of the 80 dex requirement for parry. You can still do it, but you have to have the perfect suit/items, or you'll suck it bigtime.

I said put 20 into med or focus, because that's how many skill points you'd have left over when you complete your template. You want wrestling, bad. I've pvp'ed a ton, and without it, good luck. Anyone can disarm you if you use a weapon as a mage, and you're pretty much done for the count, especially since ur dex is so low.

I have a ninja mage, and man, he's a ton of fun to play. If you can time it right, you can do a exp/fs combo, followed with a shuriken/fireball spam that pretty much owns everyone, since you're deadly poisoning without having poisoning skill.

ninjitsu shurikins automatically dp if you have the ninjitsu skill.


my ninjitsu/nox/macer uses a shurikin, ds, HL HL HL(if they get a cure then dp again) ds o00ooo000. That is my ideal combo. Doesnt always work, but when it does, its nice.

I worked it up once, and never did it again. I try to only have 1 char with wrestling, so that I can just stone it around and never deal with training that crap again! Right now its on a stone tho, as my 2 mages are staff users. I am above 2/6 on both mages, so if I get disarmed it wont hurt my casting

I did my wrestling back in the day when you could use females in jholem, Around a month ago,:) thats the worst patch they ever introduced to get rid of something in my opinion. Could train parry there in around 2 days.
