Uncommon Templates?

I'm looking for uncommon, mostly PVM templates that are still survivable and fun to play. These needn't be anything that can solo peerless bosses or champion spawns - just templates that will play differently from the tamer, sampire, or archer builds that you typically see.

Some thoughts:
  • Mystic weapon template?
  • Any poisoning template (mage or dexxer)
  • An actual garg dexxer (I don't think I've honestly seen a melee garg)
  • A garg template that takes advantage of 30 innate mysticism
  • Chiv caster (holy light/holy fist?)
  • PVM wrestler
  • Any template that revolves around a specific special move
  • Melee or archer spellweaver
  • Focused mage builds (only one spellbook)
  • Build that uses parrying mastery
  • Any functional PVM build with ninjitsu
  • Any function PVM that makes use of hiding/stealth
Theory crafting welcome, but I'm also interested in folks' actual experience with builds that stray away from vampiric embrace, "all kill", etc.

  • I have a Garg Dexxer (sampire Swordsman) but the weapons were so limiting that i just let it collect dust now lol.  guess i should do something with it eventually.

    A Goblin, a Gargoyle, and a Drow walk into a bar . . .

    Never be afraid to challenge the status quo

    Could you forgo spirit speak entirely and only take necro high enough to have 100% casting success with Horrific Beast? UO guide doesn't indicate that its bonuses scale with spirit speak or higher necro.

    Or, you wouldn't even need 100% success with casting it if you treat it the way samps treat vampiric embrace. 25-50% would probably suffice.

    yes, you only need enough necro to cast horrific beast, but bard, magery, parry, taming, chiv, myst,spellweaving ect make you unfocused, so no spells or speacial moves.

    yeah it bugs that most of the forms got shafted. its not like people don't carry talismans of ward removal, or cast dispel. if my dog form can shoot arrows out of its mouth, i should be able to use speacials, and at least spells from that skill

    I play PVM ninja with fencing/tacts/anato/heal/ninja/hide/stealth.  tiger tank.  

    don;'t really need the hiding/stealth but I like having it.  some drop it for parry
