How are you rasining your ninja skill in the beginning since a lot of the moves required steath? Do you have steath on your char? You need a skill of 80 to be able to deathstrike right?

I wondered this as well. Since I plan to start working it this weekend, it would be nice to know.

Does this still work?

Ninjitsu uses no regs or tithing, so you would be better off to invest in a Mana Regeneration, or Lower Mana Cost suit, rather than the ever popular Lower Reagent Cost suit .



Things needed:
A horse
+mana regen items
Be on Trammel facet



Training:
1) tell horse to attack you
2) cast spell- focus attack
3) target self



UOA Macro:



HIt record on selected macro
then say all kill
cast focus attack
target self



When done, the macro should look like this
Speak (all kill)
cast spell ( focus attack)
Target (you can change this to target last target)
wait till mana is XX amount

What I did was do animal form in my house while working poison and burning counts to go blue so I could go back to tram and train on a horse once I got to DS levels. 3 in 1 benefits there. Nox/ninja/blue

I think I stopped in the 70s-ish. I threw on a ring/brace so I could start doing DS once I was there. I turned blue and could go back to towns again..Be sure to not be in a guild when doing this tho, as your horse will bite it after 1 hit.

I've 115+ 4 ninjas so I got this all down to a tee. Here's what I do.

Train ninjitsu off a ninja first. That gets you to about 30. Ninja's can be found in the tokuno city. Animal form a rabbit over and over, till you get to 40. Mirror image till you get to 65 or so, maybe 70. Now here's where it gets interesting.

Get a golem. If you're in a guild, you have to be in town for this to work. If you're not in a guild, then you only have to be in trammel. Most importantly though, regardless of guild status, you have to be in trammel.

Tell the golem to attack you "all kill." Remember, if you're in a guild you have to be in town, otherwise, if you're not in town, the golem will hurt you. If you're not in a guild, this doesn't apply. Now all you do is just focus attack(make sure you don't have a shield, you can't focus attack with a shield in hand). You dont' have to target yourself or anything, just focus attack, you'll get gains.

Once you get to 90 or so, switch it to deathstrike, and you'll get all the way to 120 this way. It does take a while, don't get me wrong, but you'll see gains. Took me a week and a half of training to 120 ninjitsu, and this was like, 5-6 hours a days of training.

Np, ninjitsu seems to be the "it" skill right now, and as it should be, it's a very fun skill to use, and not overpowered. Also another key note i forgot to address. Your chance to hit with a deathstrike pertains a lot to ninjitsu skill level, but also to your HCI and weapon skill level. If you're 120 swords/wrestle/fencing/archery, with 45 HCI, you'll land your deathstrikes more frequently.

I'm currently working on ninjitsu as we speak, hitting a golem. Working it on my mule dexxer(he's stat'ed up but all he does is work skills), and i'm going to stone it over to my archer, since I don't want to waste all those arrows.

edit: forgot to mention macing as well, lol.

ahhh yes, the dummy character. I miss having mine, but I eventually made him into the scribe/mage. I forgot about the mirror image in there too. I did animal for a bit, then mirror, then deathstrike. I did it all while working nox, then when working macing on the golem.

Lets not highlight Ninjitsu too much, some non-pvping other forum trolls would love trolling this bit of information and get it nerfed. I dont feel like reworking another template anytime soon. :)

I have worked ninjitsu on about four charactors to GM and higher and the only pet I have used to train is a small fuzzy rabbit. (This way you should always hit even if you only have like 50 melee skill.) Use non guilded charactor in tram like it has been said many times above. Your weapon will not loose durability if you are not doing damage. If you are doing damage then something isn't right.

With the unguilded hitting the animal method, make sure you are out of a GZ though. I have seen people get guardwhacked, cause unless you turned the prompt off, you get the message "doing this will flag you as criminal" and people can guardwhack you. I also have seen people lose their golems in luna, for golem training too close to the wall.

yep, you can. when it hits, of course..

I've always noticed that archery sucks as far as HCI is concerned.

I'm HCI capped on my archer, and I hardly ever miss. When I do its cos its a long shot and they move before it hits them. But moving shot gets round that.

You'd hate me if I cam to play on your shard, I have a tendancy to dismount people at the worst possible moment. For instance, when your being chased by 5 mages and ure just about to get of their screens and ure ethy disappears from under you. :)

*poof* wolf form for the win!

Nothing personal Unstoppable, but I just hate archers in general. I think they have no place in pvp, but that is just me. I tried one once, (45HCI, 120 archery, insane longbow, and later even more insane regular bow) when the whole ML crazy bows were out, but I hated it, and put him on the shelf to later become my nasty nox/ninja/macer. I like to be in a fight, and not stand back and chuck arrows. I hate fighting someone up close, while their lackie is behind them hitting me with arrows and not even taking a risk.

damn, I worked Ninjitsu from Friday night until this morning almost straight and just hit 100 and I started at 50. Tonight I will stone it onto the character it's intended for and eat my 120 ninja scroll. Woo hoo, here's to a million hours from 100-120.
