Patek's Guides - Raising Stats

Introduction:
This guide will show you how to raise all three of the stats extremely quickly (10 to 100 of any of the three or just 100/100/25 in less than 90 minutes). Also included is a guide on buying skills up to 700.0 real to allow the very fast stat gain method, commonly referred to as "see saw'ing", to work. The guide may appear long, but it's very simple and following it will get you to your desired stat level very quickly.

The macros included in this guide aren't required for the method to work at all, they simply make the process a lot easier.

This guide uses the following skills for raising stats -
Camping - Str and Int
Herding - Str, int and Dex (you'll need a shepherd's crook equipped for this which you can buy off an Animal Tamer at the Stables)
Snooping - Dex

Requirements:
6000gp - This is the amount required for buying skills up to 700.0 real from a completely new character.

Macros Included:
Stat - Cut Kindling, for cutting kindling for use with camping.

Stat - Use Kindling, for using the cut kindling with camping.

Stat - Herding, for herding an animal.

Stat - Snooping, for snooping a backpack.


Copy the "text format" versions of the above macros into a .txt file in the Razor\Macros directory and save. Next change the file extension to .macro. It will appear in Razor's macro list after you restart Razor. The lines requiring changing, detailed in red above, are done by right-click on that particular line in the macro in Razor, selecting Set Target and then clicking on the target you want to add.

Method:

Step 1 - Raising total skill points to 700.0 real.

Step 2 - Preparing skills for "see-saw".

Step 3 - Performing the "see-saw".


This guide is the first in a new set of guides I'm releasing to help clear up some of the questions around stats, certain skills and macros in general. These guides aim to be uniform in fashion with full explanations and methods presented in a clear and concise way. Any questions or suggestions let me know.

Take care all

- Patek

Patek, I don't want to piss in your Cheerios, but this isn't necessary.

1. Define a Template
2. Choose starting skills
3. Play the game.

That's it, period: do "it" sensibly, and all stats will be in order long before your desired skills flesh-out; on OSI, we didn't have Razor or, pre-OurEADate, stat/skill pointers.

To the extent that I will actually offer additional advice, use Razor: in some cases, you could push 5 skills all at the same time ...

I understand the idea of just playing the game, its really just dependent on the play style of the individual. This guide is more provided if you're a) finishing the stats of a character or b) power levelling. If the person wants to just play and let stats go naturally then all the power to them. (I've been playing UO since early 1998 too, so I understand no 700.0 skill cap, no skill arrows, no stat arrows, pre-patch archery, no meditation, no razor, no UOA etc style accuracy, but some things like stats are just a pain regardless of the era).

This guide and the series of guides i'm writing up are more to get people competitive (PvP, PvM or crafting-wise) as quickly as possible to help remove the cliff some new people feel they have to climb when they join. If I can get more 7xGM hally mages on the field PVP'ing or more alchemists/blacksmiths/poisoners running vendors then my work will be worth-while :D

Cheers

Wow, epic-troll-failure: any troll should be able to discern between 8th-century England and Nazi Germany; your brethren writhe in shame ...

"Try"; what "try"?

There is no "try": there's an oozing hole between your eyes where the bullet went in.
