    Only works with regular xbows, but you dont gain skill for being too far away. Like saying a meta mage cannot gain exp from being at range.

    *something* D-port
    Really? So you have to be within 1 tile to get max gains with a crossbow? And I thought they got rid of the range penalty with a meta mage?

    Yes, same effect as other talis.

    The range penalty applies for rogue tali, as it does for zerk and defence. There is no range penalty for mage tali. Mage at least has to wait for mana, archery would be far too easy to abuse for XP gains.

    What 10% are you referring to? As far as I understand it, there is only a damage bonus if you are using knives/daggers/xbows. I don't think there is a passive 10% increase to all damage.

    OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG buying this just so i can run while stealthed.

    • The talisman tracks kills of all creatures that have over 160 max hit points
    • The relic levels of the talisman are based on the number of kills recorded. 20 kills for level 2 relics, 50 kills for level 3 relics, 90 kills for level 4 relics, 150 for 5, 300 for 6, etc
    • Every 24 hours 100 kills will decay from the total kill count
    • You can build up to 700 kills but the total will be capped at that number

    QUESTIONS:

    1) Is this 24 in-game hours or 24 normal hours?
    2) Does this mean that if I don't play for X amount of days, my relic goes back down to Level 1?
    3) Build up to 700 kills; does this mean 700 kills total or 700 kills past the total number allowed for Level 10?

    Thanks!

    From what i heard only the relic levels will go down with time, the talisman level (and thus the stealth run bonus) will remain.

    Damn normal damage bonus on top of the weapon-specific bonuses? Crazy.

    Parsnip... how do you know it is crossbow only? and not heavy crossbow?
    How do you know Arms lore also does the same as the other relics? there is no mention of armslore doing anything in the description of this tali...
    Does anyone know what knives are then? daggers (fencing) clevers(swords) skinning knives(swords) .... anything else?
    Anyone know what would be a good PVM build to maximize archery damage with this tali then?
    really hinges on if armslore works the same or not...... and what knives are as to go swords or fencing?

    Regular Xbows Only
    Arms Lore has same effect as other talis
    Just butcher knife to add to your list (https://www.uoforum.com/wiki/index.php/Weapons)
    Too early to judge best templates - I'd start with standard warrior/archer template, maybe add arms lore if you are doing bosses / paragons

    @Jakaro:
    • 700 kills total are required for maxing relics, not 700 beyond the limit.
    • Kills decay at 24 hours of real time, not in game.
    • If you do not play for a number of days, yes, your relics will degrade back to level 1 and require kills to increase level again - 700 maximum if your relics have decayed all the way to 0.

    NO edit function.......
    @Jakaro running in stealth is linked to the talisman level and not relics. Talisman xp gains in the standard method that the others do. It will require substantially more effort to max out than the relics.

    Good luck! I've got my first relic to Level 5 and my talisman is about half way through Level 1 now. I'm starting to get the hang of it again after spending months lazying around on a tamer. I think the rogue talisman will be really fun when a 2nd relic is added and damage increases a little. It'll get a little easier to get those kills then!

    It's early days but I think the kill decay could be tuned down a little. A consumable perk that stops the decay rate would be nice too!

    Ebolts? Silly man. Pick up a knife or dagger, get up close and start stabbing monsters. Check out the meta talisman threads in PvM forum for levelling recommendations with zerker. Much the same will apply to rogue, at least for the first few levels.
