For boss fights? Is 45 a must? Since I'm on siege even 30% is a risky (and damn expensive) way to go outside of factions. I thought I might try the basilisk hide armor if I could ever get it, so that could bring it up to 35. Unless I join factions, which would require dropping my sampire out of my guild and having him start a new one, which would be annoying, I think I'm stuck at this level. Is that level still ok? Or will I get hit too often? Probably depends on the boss I'd imagine.
