[Archery] Sampire Archer Templates

    I am currently working on completing an ABC Archer and was able to pull together a good template from all of the posts. I would like to start work on a Sampire Vampire and am finding it difficult to put it all together. I've read though the posts quite a bit am having trouble piecing it all together. I see one recent post with the following template:
    Archery 120
    Tactics 115
    Anatomy 110
    Heal 110
    Necro 100
    SpiritSpeak 100
    Chivalry 70

    Not sure where the other 5 goes.

    Any recommendations on good Sampire Archer Templates?

    Sounds like this template would be a lot of fun.

    Look forward to hearing from you all,
    -Eldril

    Without bushido, you're missing the "B" in ABC archer. Currently, you have a necro/archer. Drop SS (or healing) and add bushido, you'll have an ABC archer/sampire.

    Your current template is more complicated than a straight ABC archer/sampire, in that it appears you plan to use necro spells (hence, the presence of SS). Just keep in mind two things about the necro/archer: 1) you'll need to have 100 lrc suit (or carry regs) for necro spells and 2) each time you use your necro spells, your karma goes down, which decreases the effectiveness of your chivalry.

    In a nut shell: current build should be a lot of fun, but the suit will be a bit more complicated and you'll have to work karma a lot. On the other hand, if you drop SS, you won't have you have lrc or work karma, but you won't have all the necro spells at your disposal.

    Yeah, what he said.

    Try this:
    120 archery
    120 bushido
    120 tactics
    100 necromancy
    Then you have a choice of:
    (1)
    100 healing
    100 anatomy
    60 chivalry

    or

    (2)
    120 resist
    70 chivalry
    70 focus/meditation (I prefer med)

    or
    (3)
    90 resist
    100 anatomy
    70 chivalry

    Template 1 will give you the most survivability, having redundant methods of healing. Template 2 will give you extra mana for specials/lightning strikes even without the use of mana leech weapons and will give you the best chance against anything that casts curses (blood oath, for example)
    Template 3 will give you the most bang for your buck while still being quite effective against the cursing enemies.

    There are dozens of other things you can try, especially if you have the use of skill gain jewels/armor. The best plan I can think of is to keep soul stones handy and play around with it until you find something that works well for you.

    I run this:

    120 archery
    120 Bush
    100 ss
    100 Necro
    90 tactics
    75 Chiv
    120 Resist(i have this cause i switch necro/ss for anatomy/healing when i pvp it only has to be 90 for pvm imo.)

    I run wraith form and use curse weapon if i get low on life. I've tried it in vamp also, but i like using bows without mana leech. IMO this template does the most damage of any other temp next to the original sampire. U cannot however solo high end bosses like peerles without someone or something to tank. what's cool is unlike original sampire i used more necro spells (corpse skin, evil omen, wither). This temp is godly at spawns cause u can wither mobs, then honor the boss and sit back and destroy it while a tamer's pet tanks. I like the temp but i have since switched my archer back to anat healing for pvping now....but the whammyarcher is a superb template for pvm. couple downfalls to this temp is :either use regs like i did, or fit lrc into a dexxer based suit which is kind of a pain considering resists get lowered with necro forms. I also recomend using a bow with mana leech if your going the vamp route. Lastly u need to farm karma a lot if u want ur chiv spells to be effective.

    I currently do not have a vampiric archer, but I used too. I ran something along these lines.


    120 Archery (20 From Hunters)
    120 Tactics
    100 Anat
    90 Heal (Use Enhanced Aids)
    120 Bush
    110 Necro
    80 Chiv

    Ran base stats at 100 Str, 100 Dex, 50 Int. I chugged pots with 50 EP to get dex up high along with had stam increase increase on armor. MR and LMC were also incorporated into the armor. Overall was a fun char to play. Mainly used in doom to farm for doom arties. Would do a run or two a day with some friends. Now with imbueing I am sure I could make suit/weps incredible.

    Edit: with imbueing and having EP on jewels just for potting, you could actually have balanced slayer bow. Could chug pots as well for a 3rd healing method. If done right char could be almost unkillable unless it got rushed.

    My tempalte is built around the 720 skill cap. So one year you get 5 too skill cap right? Think so. I would just run 100 Necro (use scrolls to get in and out) and then run 115 bush or something like that. Really up too you. That or find jewelry to compensate.
