    Thanks to the help and advice of several amazing people in this forum I have put together a suit of armor and finished off a Sampire style character. Since I am fairly recently returned to the game after many years off, a lot of activities [peerless, champ spawns, etc.] are foreign to me.

    I was testing him out on the Balrons in Blackthorn's Dungeon with little problem. From there I progressed up to Shame unbound energy vortexes which I am able to solo [1 to 2 at a time] with little to no effort or worry.

    The problem is that now I'm at a loss of what to tackle next or what would next in the step of progression. My end goal would be able to solo some of the peerless bosses like Medusa that most people can handle with no problem but I'd like to keep practicing on harder and harder mobs. I'd also like to attempt some of the other Champ or Mini Champ bosses that are out there as well.

    Any recommendation of what to go after? I've heard people talk about Miasma as a next step but that's the only one I've heard so far.
    Thanks!

    I would recommend going to Blood Dungeon and fight the Balrons there until a Paragon spawns. The Paragon Balron gives you a lot more to think about than a regular Balron. As you found out, UEV's are easy and boring. There is a Crazy Mage just around the corner from the UEV's that will test your ability. Miasma is easy and so are the Reptalons that spawn in the same area. Just be careful fighting both at the same time. They are opposing and a slayer weapon or EOO will allow the opposing to do extra damage to you. There is also Rend located in there, but I have never encountered it yet. Hope this helps!

    1. One vs one fighting
    Greater Dragon in Destard
    Paragon Balron in Blood Dungeon
    Abscess in Blighted Grove (also try changelings in Saliva Caves just to know about them)
    Rend in Labyrinth

    2. One vs crowd fighting
    Mini spawns in the Abyss
    Champion spawns in Ilshenar
    Champion spawns in Feluca

    p.s. Keep away from Crazy Mages in Shame (and any other monsters that have tainted life force aura).

    If the OP is looking for "harder and harder mobs", then why shy away from something that is a challenge for a Sampire?

    They are not a challenge. They are thing that a sampire can't kill.

    Blood dungeon is the place to start :)
    Start with paragon daemons, then paragon blood elements, then paragon succubus, then try the paragon balron.
    You might also wanna try the bone daemon in doom. (hes a hard hitter like the balron)
    After this you should go either doom, or start doing peerless like medusa.
    I'm a big fan of doom, so go there first. I'm pretty sure that if u can solo df, then medusa is np.

    The tainted life aura is deadly for a sampire. The only way you can do them is not under the effect of ve. Problem is you need some other kind of healing. So you had to swap necro for healing. But then you are no sampire anymore :) so i'd leave these silly mages alone

    Great advice, everyone.

    I'll look into attempting some of those Paragon Balrons and start from there. Should be some good loot and also a chance for a high level treasure map to drop. Once I can master those maybe I'll attempt Miasma or some others recommended. I may, depending on ambition, attempt a Champ spawn solo for the first time.
    Any that are easier for a Sampire than others?

    Rikktor spawn is not very difficult including rikktor himself

    Miasma is easier than a paragon Balron.
    Repond Champion Spawn (Bara) is the easiest.
    The most of Spawns are random.
    Some people farm SOTs (in Feluca). So they do the first two levels of a spawn only then go to another spawn.
