Returning player LF some build advice

Hello all, 

I've been away since the tail end of AoS. I was hoping all of you could list some popular builds. I'll be 100% PvM, either solo or duo. I'm interested in doing tougher more rewarding content(is doom still a thing?)

I see a lot of mention of Sampire(no idea what the build is). I also see mentions of tamers picking up spellweaving? I've always ran music/peace with a tamer build. Wouldn't the loss of those make the actual tame process extremely difficult?

Thanks for any insight. 
Good day

    Peace tamer is still a viable build. I play it. If taming is something you enjoy you should look into the new animal training
  • Also, I've noticed pet slots seem wonky now. energy vortex is 3 slots now? I remember being able to have 2 out. Same thing with a lot of the tames. It seems as if i can only have 1 of something that used to be a duo or combo. What am I missing?

    Energy vortex is 2 slots - were you perhaps mounted at the time of casting?
  • I was on a llama. When I drop an ev it shows me at 4/5 slots.

    EV is only 2 slots. I just cast it to confirm. Could you have had another pet somewhere?  A pack horse? Please check again. If you are showing a slot used when the llama is stabled and no summons cast page a GM for assistance.

    As far as the tamer goes there are options other than Peacemaking+Musicianship to keep monsters docile while you attempt to tame them.

    1) Mysticism + Focus gives you access to Sleep and Mass Sleep. Could save you some skill points if you had Music+Peace and  EvalInt+Meditation on your AoS tamer. A bonus is there are many more uses for Mysticism than Peacing, including direct damage spells and area heals. Magery is still needed for Recall or Gate though. https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-wiki/skills/mysticism/

    2) For truly skill point desperate tamers there is the Honor Virtue ability (https://uo.com/wiki/ultima-online-wiki/gameplay/the-virtues/ ) . Build Honor on your character by using the virtue on undamaged foes then killing them. After a LOT of use, you can use the Honor ability on yourself to prevent monsters from attacking you for a short duration.
