Ultima online has a plethora of skills that can be mixed and matched however the player chooses. Some skills generally work better with others, but every skill has a use.
Check out these templates for examples of some sample builds, and these templates for some common PvP builds.
Choosing the right starting skills is crucial, as you do not start with any gold on Outlands. Instead, you start with a generous number of starting items that are thematic and complimentary to the skills chosen. If you are unsure, you can also choose one of the premade templates that will do all of the work for you.
Choosing the advanced template will grant you the starting items from the 3 skills chosen, as well as a 1,000 gold check that can only be used to train skills from vendors.
These starting items are bound to your character, and are unable to be traded.
Note: The Spellstone that is associated with magic starting skills can stack. For example, taking both Magery and Meditation will grant you a 500 charge Spellstone.
The Spellstone substitutes charges for reagents as a boost to starting out mages. Each circle of spell corresponds to 1 charge which is consumed even on spell failure. For example, casting fireball will reduce the charges on your Spellstone by 3.
