Sample Builds

By JarJarIsASith

     This page provides information on potential ways that a player can build their characters in the UO Singularity world. Remember that many of these builds require unlocking a class feature for their full potential. Read up on the class system feature for more information on how to do this.

    This list of skill combination is not a comprehensive list but only intended to serve as a guide to newer players looking for a direction to go with in their early steps.

Dexxer Builds:

  1. Juggernaut 1: Swordsmanship / Tactics / Anatomy / Healing / Parry / Resist Spells / Poisoning
    This will make you somewhat tanky and allows you auto poison enemies on attack if you carry poisons potions of the appropriate level in your base backpack.
  2. Juggernaut 2: Swordsmanship / Tactics / Anatomy / Healing / Parry / Resist Spells / Inscription
    This will make you the tankiest class in the game, you can utilize the Reactive Armor and Magic Reflection spell benefits by using scrolls for these spells to reach the highest potential damage reduction available in the game, this is the only build that can unlock this full potential.
  3. Juggernaut 3: Swordsmanship / Tactics / Anatomy / Healing / Parry / Resist Spells / Archery
    This will be a well rounded build, allowing you to be very tanky and kill enemies from a distance.
  4. Berserker 1: Swordsmanship / Tactics / Anatomy / Healing / Mining / Lumberjacking / Poisoning
    Who needs a tank when you can just grab a Bardiche or Halberd and lay waste to enemies. Once you unlock this class you'll notice that wielding these two weapons leads to massive damage output. The only problem you'll face is finding the right weapon as they are hard to come by! Adding poison allows you to also poison enemies in combat. Remember that you can work up both lumberjacking and mining by simply hitting enemies with a polearm weapon!
  5. Berserker 2: Swordsmanship / Tactics / Anatomy / Healing / Mining / Lumberjacking / Parry
    Adding the parry skill to this template will unlock greater potential for your Physical damage absorbtion, reducing the downside to playing a pure damage oriented class.
  6. Classic Dexxer: Fencing / Tactics / Anatomy / Healing / Parry / Poisoning / Hiding
    This template could server quite well as a PvP focussed build. Fast hitting fencing weapons can apply poisons with great frequency, Parry will allow you to take on Berserkers, and Hiding to help you escape whatever troubles you may find. Remember that in UO Singularity you must have the Poisoning skill to apply poisons in combat! And if you attack innocents, the auto reapply poisons feature will not be triggered. You can reapply poisons in mid combat by hitting a non-player once though or through a macro you've setup.

Bard Builds:

  1. Spell Singer 1: Magery / Meditation / Musicianship / Discordance / Provocation / Peacemaking / Poisoning
    The spell singer has powerful buffs to how their Blade Spirits function, giving them dispell protection as well as reduced control slots requirements, adding poisoning to this allows for your blade spirits to apply poisons as well.
  2. Spell Singer 2: Magery / Meditation / Musicianship / Discordance / Provocation / Peacemaking / Evaulate Intelligence
    This template will allow you to wield the powers of blade spirits and have viable mage damage as well through Evaluate Intelligence
  3. Dexxer Bard 1: Archery / Tactics / Anatomy / Healing / Musicianship / Provocation / Hiding
    This is a class Bard build that gives a player a lot of safety, blade spirits are still useful but not quite as powerful as they are for a spell singer, the addition of hiding can be helpful when dealing with monsters you need to drop aggro on.
  4. Dexxer Bard 2: Fencing / Tactics / Anatomy / Healing / Musicianship / Provocation / Poisoning
    Auto applying poisons on blade spirits and through regular combat as well makes this build quite formidable.
  5. Tamer Bard: Animal Taming / Animal Lore / Veterinary / Healing / Anatomy / Musicianship / Provocation
    One of the most powerful PvE templates in the game, this allows you to leverage two of the most powerful abilities in the game provocation and animal taming.

Mage Builds:

  1. Demonologist: Magery / Meditation / Evaluate Intellect / Inscription / Resist Spells / Spirit Speaking / Poisoning
    This is one of the most unique builds available in the UO Singularity world, once you unlock the Demonologist class your Summon Daemon spell will summon a Balron instead of a normal Daemon. This skill combination has the ability to contest Animal Taming once you reach the highest skill levels. Remember that the Balron will transform into a regular Daemon if you attack innocent players (including yourself!), so I would not recommend it for those with murderous intentions.
  2. Glass Cannon Mage: Magery / Meditation / Evaluate Intellect / Tactics / Anatomy / Archery / Healing
    This template will allow to open hard on enemies from a distance and make you tough to kill through all the healing you have available. The downside is you will be sacrificing a lot of defensive capabilities to achieve this and you'll need to find some good mage armor as well.
  3. Defensive Mage: Magery / Meditation / Evaluate Intellect / Inscription / Resist Spells / Parry / Wrestling
    This template would mostly be viable for PvP but it should make you both difficult to kill and allow you to stun and disarm opponents with wrestling. Wrestling is the only skill in the game that allows players to make use of special moves. All other weapons have no special moves available for use at the time of this writing.
