I'm looking to start a sampire. Been read through a lot of (old) posts. Not sure some of them are still valid today. 1. Do I need real GM necro skill to cast VE? Some posts said just needed 35 and then wear a lot of expensive gears to get to 100, and then cast VE. 2. I have two warrior templates, one is a kind of tank mage and another is a pure pally. Is it better to transform one of them to a sampire or start anew a character? Many thanks in advance for any advice.
