There are many ways to start off on Ultima Online, It is recommended to either choose a mage a warrior, or select the advanced tab and select your skills as such. The other options are pre set templates that already distribute these attributes however we are goingt to use the advanced tab and do it ourselves more precisely.
Ultima Online is a game which is all about freedom and choices, there are more then 50+ skills to choose from and the options for starting out on the shard are endless. For the purpose of this guide we are going to be making a warrior-mage type character that focuses on early survivability and using a weapon with high dex and str. This char can be used to hunt the easy spawn in the game after a bit of training. Please distribute your stat and skill points accordingly for the guide. The 50 healing skill will allow bandages a much higher success rate early game, 50 resist spells will provide a reduction against spell damage and is one of the hardest skills to train, while selecting tailoring with a 0 skill point allocation will give you an extra bolt of cloth which you can cut with scissors to produce more bandages. Starting with high strength (50) will give you higher starting health points will 20 be a good starting point. You wont need much int early on as you will primarily be using meele weapons to start making early gold so leave that the default amount of 10. You can have 225 stats total allocated between str, dex, and int.
By this point Your char is ready to now be creating, click over to the next screen where you will be shown the map of the world. By default you are starting in Brit. Britain is the Hub of Ultima Online and bank and city will be your home base while you get accumulated to the game world. Please follow to the next section to learn more about the interface before you adventure out.
