I've been experimenting with an archer PvM template without healing. Instead of healing I use Vampiric Embrace. With just 50 necro (+ midnight + Ossian + jewelry, which you take off after casting) you can get VE which gives you: -20% life drain on every hit. -Immunity to poison levels 1-4. -MR There's a few issues, I know. You can't drink cure pots and you take extra damage from certain spells. But you will rarely get poisoned, so you can just use close wounds (which heals 30+ at high karma) to heal in case of need. You could run this template: 120 Archery 120 Tactics 120 Bushido 100 Resist 100 Anatomy 70 Chiv 50 Necro 40 Focus Or 105 archery + headdress and 55 focus. The main advantage is that when you fight e.g. the DF you will heal easily yourself for 20 points/2 s. At least. I wanted your opinion on this . Do keep in mind that this template is PvM only.
