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
Cast Spell: Flamestrike
Wait for Target
IF Mana <= 50
IF SysMessage = "Focus" (From Cannot focus your concentration)
Hope this helps.
