    Had a chat with some vets about training and welcoming our newer members of the shard.

    I want to use this opportunity to extend an invitation to anyone interested in learning to pvp or wanting to just pvp to post here.

    I, and few other vets (more experienced and better than me), will happily help in providing tips and tricks as well some hands on practice in game. This can include setting hot keys, razor options, spell combos, templates and equipment.

    To anyone reading this and tempted to post, please read Blaise guide on pvp refresher in the subforum section. It is a very detailed and incredibly helpful guide that is perfect in setting the scene.

    I am interested specially if this course has tips for PvPing with more than 300ms ping(what is my best range usually). I give up pvping with my dexter(i gming poisoning just to make it possible). But already build a pure mage to se if i can play a little... some classes about useful spells hotkeys and mana management would be nice!

    Although I certainly can keep up with most everyone, I guess 300ms vs 50ms does matter in 1v1 at times. However that said I think a lot of it just gets in our heads that razor says 300ms and we assume that everyone else is 30ms and we just perceive a disadvantage.

    Now packet loss where you move slower than someone does and you freeze for a second or two.. you a weak link on the field.

    But I can hold my own with most people if I'm on the right build (hold my own as surviving and not dying) In field fights I don't think ping matters very much and also 90% of the people complain about a higher ping, which means your ping is closer to normal than you think. I've played on cellphone internet and am 2300 miles away from the server and I keep up with everyone fine. And been part of some of the largest field fights UOR has seen.

    So my advice is get over the idea you can't pvp with "above-average" ping, will allow you to pvp just fine when you feel you're on a more level field. Of course if you have packet loss something is wrong and I'd do all the trouble shooting stuff I could and eliminate packet loss, as if you are slow moving then you're gonna get caught in closest target all the time.

    Please @Dr Satan let me uphold my excuse. Is the only thing i have.
    Now talking seriously, i can do good any event or activity, i am not complaining..
    But for ex, on the NoH, i had so many troubles everytime i met the crowd around the mob and all those names showing on my screen.... same happens in champs with all those dragons..
    And watching, especially SoF videos, is very visual how smoother the one that is recording the video runs... I also logged on better connections them mine, and i felt the difference.

    I think my razor is not tuned at his best perfomance(i still have that life % of players configured to show over their heads for ex)
    Sometimes looks like some pc process trouble, for sure i loose something running the client by a wine windows emulator on my mac...

    I don't mean to sidetrack the topic, but I will highly suggest trying out quick's uor razor as it has a ton of improvements in every way (including performance via bug fixes in movement) www.uor-razor.com and also if you have a weekend to kill I have heard amazing results from people with simular complaints of wine performance just going all in and resizing/partitioning their hard drive and using boot camp and a Windows install just for UOR. Although.. That may be a bit much effort wise.

    That said, still a ton ya can do, and for me with pvp it was a confidence type of thing and a composure type of thing to be comfortable on the field (first post of mine was just to suggest best way to counter weaker connection is winning the mental aspect). Without the best connection you won't be purple potting eq syncs to become a 1v1 champion but with fundamentals such as greater heal wands, defensive magery, proper hotkeys, not going Leroy in the field you'll be surprised how awesome you can be.

    You say you want a mage, and that may be your calling, but on my 4g LTE I'm so much better on a dexxer or hybrid.

    Staying alive is what I'm best at, and I do match others in regards to mount speed. It's far easier to survive a Mana dump using magery and GH pots/wands than to dump offensive magic for the kill when spell timing and spell interrupts determine your success as a mage. I say survive their attack and never let them regen Mana be it nox katana or double axe hah.

    Guess this thread is a proper place for discussing theory to get good using what ya have available to ya :D

    When helping a new player with anything, all, please first ask about their game window resolution.
    The 800x600 default numbers has been staggering in my experience.

    New to the shard and to UO in general but I am a longtime PvP lover in many MMO from Shadowbane and DAoC to EVE to WoW and many in between. UO PvP is legendary and I am here partially to experience that. I am still GM'ing my first toon but would love to go out on some small (1-3) hunting parties if that's a thing to learn by doing.

    Pro tip #69: Announce that you're quitting to focus on flight school full time.
    Come back a few days later and start PKing again along with pics on the forums.

    I could use some tips on PvP with a tamer/mage. Not the template itself, but advice on how to effectively use your mare eg explo/ebolt all kill macro etc etc
