Hello,

 

I'm seeking template suggestions that would take advantage of the animal forms in Ninjitsu which would also allow me to stealth.

 

A ninja mage would be awesome!

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks,

 

Edit: what should my int, str, dex be?

Well you would obviously need Ninjitsu, Hiding and Stealth, then you could have Magery or Mysticism, Meditation and Eval Int and Resist Spells.

That seems awesome! Thank you :)

 

It would be a PVM template that would dabble in some pvp. I'm not seeking to be uber, just decently viable.

 

What should my int, str, dex be?

I've often heard what Dragkiris has said, most notably when I made a necromancer/paladin when those skills were first introduced.  Of course, now it is all the rage with sampires, but back then everyone scoffed at it so don't be discouraged by those who can't be creative.  I suggest trying it out on test center.  Build your template and give it a test run.  See what problems you run into.  One of the things you want to test is if you can even cast in the various forms.  I can't test it at the moment, but if I recall correctly, my dog form characters couldn't cast while in that form.  I might be mistaken, however.

Thank you for the replies.

 

Is there any sort of ninja template ie. with either fencing/swords/macing that would allow me to remain in animal form for a lot of the time? If so please suggest a template and what my int, str, dex would be as well. I've found some templates while googling but I just want to make sure I'm running what is the most realistic/feasible at this time.

You can't cast or use weapon specials while in ninja forms. Ninja is used in magery for one reason... to escape dismount ganks in PvP and to spam mirror images until you can hit form and run away. Ninja use in pvm has always been ineffective at best... the only possible viable way I could see to run a melee guy would be a gargy with a soul glaive in dog form or a macer with a diamond mace because dog form gives you mass hpr... but there are other builds that would be so much better

@sable I've heard the same thing I just said too. The problem is when 99% of the time the person saying it is right... they said it to me when I made my necro dexxer a few weeks after AOS was launched... and they were right... and they said it to me when I made my leaf blade wraith after se was launched... and they were right again. The thing is they were not scoffing the templats themselves they were scoffing they idea that you could put together a suit to make the template effective (which was impossible until they buffed runics)... your encouragimg this guy to waste his time
