Can some of the top PVP players post some of the important info, regarding how to set up your macros, what is the best gear to collect and what weapons/attributes are best?  If you have any advice or can write a guide for the new players, it would be very helpful!

So problem with that is you have alot of factors to account for.  First is are you going to donate. That is going controll what gear you shoot for right away. Next is are you going mage or dexter. Mage is deff top and easiest to play. Thats just for starter. 100 other things play a big role too. For instance are you always going to have guild members with you, do you want to play pokiemon and fight with pets.


That being said some must have items no matter what are all spell books, mothers day and ever other potion that is available, as well as enhanced everlasting(donation) or start making cleen aids with fountians. If your donating then battle vecna or battle kas for gear, if your not then magi and or kas for starters. I have found some serouis good stuff for pvp can be found in some cheep custom atries....but you have to know fighting tactics in order to kill with them.....so thats my start, and like i said just a answer to one question can shoot you into a million other directions. So ask your self....do i have time,and am i a good enough pvper to start from the bottom grind it out and earn your gear(no donation)...or do you have no time suck at pvp and just want to kill, then donate.

I will take a stab at this.  Flame on

1. Train all your skills. Regardless of whatever template you choose. At some point you will use them.

2. Max your Stats. The cap is 150str 165dex 150int. It might take a while to get there but thats what you want to end up with. I always over cap my Dex so that when cursed I can still maintain 4 sec bandage timer.

3. use [mystats or the object inspector inside of UOSteam to help with capping stats.
- 100% Lower Reagent Cost
- 40% Lower Mana Cost
- 40% Enhance Potions
- 4 sec bandage speed
- 75 HCI/DCI
- 100% Damage Increase
- 4 Faster Casting 6 Faster Cast Recovery for Magery, or 6 FC 8 FCR to cap for Chivalry
- 30% SDI cap for PVP, I don't think there is a cap for PVM
- 100% Reflect Physical Damage

3. Download UOSteam

4. Learn the program, Create your Profile, there is a great profile posted here on forums. I based a lot of my macros off of Pumpkin Escobar's PVP Profile. Once you get comfortable with the program you can create your own macros to tailor to your play style.

5. Gear/Jewels. For starters there is some great easily obtainable gear. Astro Deamon Set, Cursed Pirate quest items, Mirror Shield, Vampire Robe just to name a few. Compliment these pieces with +15 skill Ring/Bracelet, the single skills are normally found cheap. Clothing is a nice way to boost skill also. Shoes, Sandals, Kilt, Skirt, FancyShirt, Shirt, HalfApron, Red or Green Doublet, Robe. As your gear progresses you can add more clothing while still maintaining your caps.

6. Weapons. The main abilities people look for are, Mortal Strike, Double Strike, Crushing Blow, Bleed, Moving Shot, Armor Ignore, Disarm, Paralyzing Blow
-Regular Bow. PB MS
-Crossbow CB MS
-Repeating Crossbow MovingS DS
-Hammer Pick AI MS
-War Hammer Whirlwind CB
-Executioners Axe B MS
-Ornate Axe Disarm CB
-No-Dachi CB RidingSwipe
-Bone Harvester PB MS
-Katana AI DS

When I used a weapon I would always go with some sort of bow. Bows can have Parry Damage Kits and Lower Parry Damage Kits applied to them, this alone puts them in a league of their own.. Bows also have another clear advantage over other weapons because they can be balanced. This means you can chain chug pots while keeping shield and bow equipped. The only setback for a mage using a crafted bow is that they will always carry the -29 mage minus. they cannot be crafted with -20.
 
-Triple Slash. cap@175 Arms Lore
-Shield Spike. cap@175 Tactics
Just to name a few.

7. Skills to Focus on
-Caster, Magery, Eval and then...
-Dexxer, Weapon Skill, Tactics, Anatomy, Parry, Focus, Arms Lore. 



8. Buffs (Some might be off a little)
-If in human form, Cast Vampiric Embrace, type [cs angelicfaith  (cast Angelic Faith Command), recast Vampiric Embrace to return to human form. This will leave you with a extra +20 in all stats and +20 Healing +20 Anatomy +20 Mace Fighting.
Magery
-Bless, Increases Stats, +Stats and Duration based on Magery Skill
Spell Weaving
-Attune Weapon, Temporarily Absorbs Physical Damage
-Gift of Renewal, Heal over time spell. Heals 10hps every 2 seconds for 20 seconds
-Arcane Empowerment, +10% Spell Damage Increase +10% Summoned Pet Hits Points and also raises difficulty to Dispel, Buff last 20 seconds
-Immolating Weapon, Adds addition Fire Damage Hit spell to weapon for .10seconds? not sure how long but its short duration
-Gift of Life, Gives you a instant res available for 10 minutes
Cleric
-Sacred Boon, Heal over time spell. Heals around 10 hps every 2 seconds for 20 seconds

9. PVP Tactics of Fighting, Regardless of which template you choose there are a few things that must be done to be successful. Curse! always use it and always try to keep it up. This is very important. Whether your dex or casting, Curse can make or break a fight. It doesn't matter if you only have 120 Eval, always cast it.

The way to win in a fight is to prevent your opponent from healing. Without some sort of method to prevent healing you will never beat the bandage timer/mini heal. This can be done by using Weapon Abilities such as Mortal Strike, Bleed, Infectious Strike. Using the spell Poison is also another good way to stall healing but in my opinion its hard to top Mortal Strike. There are very few ways to get around this one, especially is you have negative karma. Remove Curse is out the window if you have negative karma. Relying on Enchanted Apples alone is extremely risky due to the cool down period (30 seconds), that being said apples will not only cure Mortal Strike but will also Remove Curse. If you have negative karma and your Enchanted Apples are on cool down the only way to heal is by using Spirit Speak.

Popping Evasion can often save your life when fighting a caster. You will have a chance of evading spells. Hopefully giving you enough time to heal up or this can be used to get off some of your higher cast time spells.

10.Simple UOSteam Macros (I have Do not auto interrupt checked for all my macros)
