    lol, the question will probably be shorter than the thread title but here goes :p

    which is the better choice, 100 anatomy or 100 spirit speak?

    i only ask this, because i was plugging away at miasma with my abc archer, which is fine, i dont have any problems, but as i was leaving the spawn, i let a sampire take over, and omg it was insane, he just burned through miasma after miasma.

    anyway, it made me think wtf am i doing on an abc archer?!?! i had been mulling over the idea of doing a sampire for a short while, this has convinced me!

    (the sampire i was watching had spirit speak, but all of the CG sampire templates i can find on this forum have 100 anatomy.)

    Most sampires have both to hand [on soulstones] as you'll want both for different jobs.

    SS is handy for curse wepon for the extra 50% healing every hit.

    Anat will enable you to do more damage when you dont need the extra healing.

    So completly depends on the job and your preferance.

    EDIT ** That is if your running in vampire form, if in wraith form you'll have to have SS.

    Spirit speak is primarily used in situations that either require a lot of additional healing, or if you plan to be in wraith form for one reason or another. For most instances Anatomy is the skill to go with. 100 Resist is also kept on a soulstone for use against Necro casting creatures such as found in Doom.


    If he'd had Anatomy instead of SS, which against Miasma is not needed at all, he'd have gone through them much faster. I can 3 shot the weaker Miasma's with my Scorp slayer ornate axe.

    running SS seems the best choice? the ability to switch to wraith if you get mana drained and keep up life leech through curse weapon, seems invaluable... and the ability to use wither on low end champ spawns... an extra heal through poison etc...

    my main intention with the character was to solo champ spawns/peerless, so perhaps the survivability is better?

    Keep in mind that in wraith form with SS you lose both the 20% damage reduction from an exceptionally armored swampy, the damage obtained from GM Anatomy, and the extra 2 seconds for Evasion. This is why most choose vamp form over wraith.

    Could've had both. I used to roll with SS instead of Parrying.

    surely then the extra healing is moot due to the extra damage you take, so you heal that damage better, but you take more damage, as opposed to taking less damage, and not needing the extra healing?

    How do you get to 65 DCI ? Isn't DCI capped at 45?
