    Best stats for a sampire thrower

    current stats:

    weapon: soul glave
    33% mana leech
    1.75 speed

    vamp form

    40 lmc
    5 mr
    86 mana

    I can trade off 8 mana for 3 MR up to 4 times so i could go maximum

    40 lmc
    17 mr
    54 mana

    Which is better? or a combo in between.

    i dont have any med or focus on this build.

    Is there any reason to have higher then 180 total stam. assuming you can't get to 210

    MR is useless for special moves.
    If you relay on healing spells then 11/70 or 10/78 could be better. It helps you when you run out of mana for some reason and need to gain 6 mana for a spell faster.

    I admit I am a little confused by your post. But generally for PvM, you want mana increase over MR. I don't know why you would have 40 LRC, but maybe you meant LMC. Make sure your Soul Glaive has high HML. In fact, as a throwing sampire I would use a weapon with 30 SSI, 40 DI, Slayer, 50 HML, and 44 HSL. For super slayer, go 44 HML and 40 HSL.

    the throwing weapons has max base on SSI. only way to get 44ml is to lower ssi. low 30s is the highest it goes, so i leach 1/3 of the time. you are correct on lmc.

    i wasn't sure if MR would help more for spaming AI in vamp form.

    Oh that's right... Throwing and archery weapons have half the mana leech as a melee weapon. Then 30 HML will have to work. You want at least 40 SSI combined on the suit and weapon and 150 stamina to throw at 1.75s.

    As I said before MR is useless for special moves.
    The difference between 5 MR and 17 MR is less then 0.5 MPS and AI costs 30 mana (5 mana reduction, 40 lmc, penalty). You even will not notice this difference.

    Especially if you have no Focus or Med, considering they did a patch a few years back that made even the MR property based off of those two skills, in order to prevent people from completely dropping Focus/Med and replacing it with an item property in PvP. MR also get's Diminishing Returns.
