Edit: As of Patch 55 you may no longer gain resist by casting on yourself in town


First off, Here are some questions that need to be answered.

Q) Are you raising resist with your magery?

The importance of this question is really about how quickly you want to GM magery, while it is completely possible to GM magery and never cast an 8th level spell (Which is what you would do if you are raising Resist at the same time) Casting 8th Level spells will speed up the gains of Magery. Personally, I raise resist at the same time I'm doing magery. So, here is how i do it.

Q) What spells should I cast?

From skill level 50-62.9: Cast Lightnening targeting your self.
From Skill Level 63.0-82.9: Cast Energy Bolt Targeting Your Self.
From Skill Level 82.9-100: Cast Flame Strike Targeting Your Self.

By using these spells, You should be at roughly 90-92 Resist, by the time you GM Magery.

Q) How do I Negate the damage that is caused by these offensive spells?

Easily, Macro in town, right next to a bank!

Q) How do I avoid Thieves in town though? I don't want my hard earned Regs to be stolen, will i afk-Macro!

This is slightly more difficult, as it requires you to set up a restock agent inside of Razor.

First, let's start off by logging in your character, and getting Razor running. After that, go to a bank, and open up your bank. Place all of your regs in the "Bank" container, not inside any bags inside your bank. Now, Open up Razor, and go to the agents tab. In the drop down menu, Select "Restock Agent - 1". Now, we need to add the items that we want on the restock list. So click on the "Add Item" button, then inside of UO, a targeting cursor will come up. Select the item. This will open up a popup from Razor, asking you for Count:. You are going to enter "1" as the count for each item.

Once you have added all the regs required for the spell onto the restock agent list, Go to the "Hotkeys" tab. Inside the Agents section of the Hotkey's Tab, Bind a key to use "Restock Agent-1".

Now to creation of the Macro itself. (See Razor Guide on Creating Macros)

Personally, This is my macro:

Pause: Mana >= 50
Restock Agent - 1
Wait for target
Target Self
Pause: .7secs
Cast Spell: Flamestrike
Wait for Target
Target Self
IF Mana <= 50
Useskill: Meditation
End IF
IF SysMessage = "Focus" (From Cannot focus your concentration)
Pause 10secs
Useskill: Meditation
End IF

Hope this helps.

I have to second that thank you. I wasn't quite sure how to use the restock agent now I've been using it for quite a bit.

Skip any info on a macro that lets you select crafting menu items? That is the other thing I cannot figure out with razor or find more information about.

No matter how secluded you think you are in the Magincia butcher shop with a stockpile of FS regs, someone will find you, kill you, and take your lunch money. Seriously, use agents.

Just an update on the magery gains. I am 99% sure that lightning stops magery gains at 62.5. You need to start casting energy bolt then.

Agreed. I'm pretty sure resisting spells stops there as well from lightning.

i just started working on my pvp char and i would say i got to 64 magery while my resist got to 72'ish. i bet i wasted a lot of regs because i macro'ed for a long time and didn't care to look. to get that 1.5 magery probably cost me a good 4-5 hours :|

My apologies on the Lightening mistake, I looked back at my screen shots and defintely switched at exactly 62.9 skill, because i spent 2 hours without gaining a single point of magery/Resist.

I fixed the above post.

I find it best to switch to a higher circle right before the stopping point in gains...if you try to go exactly to 62.5 or .9 it takes a long ass time whereas if you switch to ebolt at 60 it goes much faster. Idk just my two cents.

To make it clear I think you need to say that these are skill levels and not the real skill level....
I wasted 1000 regs of sulfurous ash and mandrake doin lightning at real stat 59.2. So ya just so everyone knows this is not real skills but the normal skill level
