The concept of a sampire/wammy is about leeching life/mana from the monster. By dropping parry and raising tac/anat you're maximizing leeches. Below is what i feel is the best temp for sampire/wammy. 120 weapon (swords/fence) 120 bush 100 spirit 40 necro 120 tactics 120 anatomy 100 chiv As far as equipment. Mace and shield glasses, fast weapon with high leeches(some people like using weapons that have the feint special, leafblade/bok to name a couple. Di on your gloves and di on your tailsman. Fey leggings and hoi/violet. Nice pair of arms/gorget. With this equipment and the above temp you'll be ready to attempt a peerless. Before doing that tho i'd go fight some paragon balarons. Playing this temp is like driving a sports car, its wicked. You can be almost dead all three bars are redlined and within a second your back to full life/mana/stamina. The only advice i can give on running the temp is to hang in and not bail. It takes practice but once you get it down it's a blast.
