Actual Sampire Training

    I am working with my newb Sampire and I am trying to get the character up so that I can go out and fight to get my skills to 120. Here is what she has:

    Swordsmanship 67.3/120 (120PS used)
    Parrying 83.7/120 (120PS used)
    Tactics 71.9/100
    Anatomy 82.1/100
    Bushido 70/120 (115PS used, looking for 120)
    Necromancy 82.7/100
    Spirit Speak 82.6/100 (will rotate on SStone as needed)
    Resisting Spells 68.9/100 (currently saved on SStone)
    Chivalry 60/60

    The problem I am having is deciding exactly HOW to gain all these skills. I decided to raise Necromancy to 99 first to train with Vampiric Embrace on. I also want to raise my Bushido to a high level as well in the beginning. This allows me to use a huge mana pool before lowing my Int (currently 137).

    Are there any suggestions for training-up my Sampire? Does everyone get the Necromancy done first usually? Is there a smarter way?

    Thanks for any input.

    You can train a few skills at once to save time. Keep your spirit speak, necromancy, and resisting spells on, and then go do the Haven resisting spells gaining trick (using the spectral spellcasters) while casting lich form over and over again (make sure you have 100% LRC and 40% LMC, plus a shadow wisp up). If you health starts to get down a bit from lich form health drain, just spirit speak once or twice. You might want to continue using wither for a few more points of necromancy if you're failing lich form too often; either way, if you haven't ever trained necromancy up, be prepared for it to take a while. It took me about 6 hours of nonstop lich form casting to get from 90-99. Once you've done that, you can lower your mana pool. You won't really need that mana pool for training bushido unless you want it to take ridiculously long (i.e. the blue pet training method). Take a look at my parry training made easy thread for tips on training your parry up to 120 easily.

    Once you've got your equipment, vampiric embrace, and 120 parry... You can just go out and train swordsmanship/bushido/tactics/anatomy while getting used to the character. I find golem and blue pet training FAR too slow to be worth my time on those skills, plus by training them with active use, you'll get some experience in how to play the character effectively in addition to some loot.
