Character creation strategy
The most powerful possible character
- Suggested class: wizard
After the first part of the game (Pilgrimage quests) all the attributes will be at 99. Then, the only class that will make any difference will be the wizard, because of his/her extra 4 spells.
- Suggested race: elf (or dwarf)
At the beginning of the game, you should fight monsters to increase HP and money. In order to do so, you need to fight enemies physically. Therefore, whatever character class and race you choose, it is better to start with agility and strength as high as possible, with agility being slightly more important. The elf race has an agility bonus, while the dwarf race has a strength bonus.
Note that a (female) elf/dwarf wizard is also the strongest possible character in Ultima 2.
In the following example, four characters were created by combining races and classes with similar bonuses.
